Our homeowners approached us for design help shortly after purchasing a fixer upper. They wanted to redesign the home into an open concept plan. Their goal was something that would serve multiple functions: allow them to entertain small groups while accommodating their two small children not only now but into the future as they grow up and have social lives of their own. They wanted the kitchen opened up to the living room to create a Great Room. The living room was also in need of an update including the bulky, existing brick fireplace. They were interested in an aesthetic that would have a mid-century flair with a modern layout. We added built-in cabinetry on either side of the fireplace mimicking the wood and stain color true to the era. The adjacent Family Room, needed minor updates to carry the mid-century flavor throughout.
Moving north, the spaces become more public, leading to the open dining and living space where north facing floor to ceiling glass and sliding doors open to the pool, courtyard and lush landscape views. (Photography by Jeremy Bitterman.)
Eclectic dining room with modern design and antique elements, including home owner's horse picture collection and race track paintings. The massive dining table is made out of reclaimed wood and the patchwork area rug is semi-antique recycled from Turkey. The Gino Sarfatti chandelier is from Flos.
