PROJECT SUMMARY:

This kitchen remodel combines the most appealing elements of rustic and modern aesthetics. Our clients had just purchased their home near La Jolla and moved in with their rambunctious and beloved dog, Peanut. They needed a new kitchen design better adapted to their lifestyle and more expressive of their personal styles. As active members of their church community, the couple often invite large groups of people into their home. They wanted a welcoming, open kitchen space that would accommodate large groups comfortably, yet still feel like "home" without company. Honoring the clients' desire for warm tones of wood, expansive space, and a blend of both rustic and modern spirit, our designers created structural and visual solutions. The result is an extraordinary kitchen that accommodates the homeowners and their guests with comfort and imagination.

Previously, the dining area was separate from the kitchen in a small, dark room. The new design opened up this area and combined the dining room with the kitchen, creating a much more spacious environment.

A generous island seats four and contains display space, functionality and storage, including rollouts in every cabinet. The countertop is Mocha Caesarstone; the custom maple cabinetry is Tidal Mist Gray with a subtle brown tint.

The view from the dining table shows the back of the island, hand crafted from planks of reclaimed Temecula wood. This rough natural element contrasted with the modern lines of the island countertop exemplifies the concept of mixing modern and rustic character.
