This was a complete kitchen & dining room renovation. The design enhances separation between kitchen and dining that was missing from the existing do-it-yourself layout. The style is casual-elegant to suit the Clients' taste, and very suitable for the informal layout of this 1930's bungalow.
View of dining area from open kitchen. The client's prize fish was central to the decor. The curtained wall masks ungainly windows while allowing ample sunlight and imparting an elegance to the space.
Carefully planned and designed, the cabinetry uses every square inch of space and features clever interior organization. Even the extra-high toe-kick space was used for shallow drawer storage.
Partitions removed and the client's love of color, sun, tropical atmosphere, sea-side and fish roundly embraced, the resulting space invites comfortable entertaining and daily living.
A modern decorating touch with the client's existing furnishings updated a tired look, but does not tell of the dramatic space transformation. Unusual re-partitioning created a diagonal entry, gained ample space for a new walk-in closet, provided for an open kitchen and, allowed for elegantly improved space use in the adjacent bedrooms.
An office/den with a personal and playful sensibility.
