Project Summary

A young professional couple with challenging careers and busy social lives wanted to create a dream kitchen in their Carmel Valley home as a respite from their hectic schedules. They love to cook and entertain frequently and needed more open space and functionality to comfortably welcome friends and family into their environment. They also wanted their kitchen to have a more natural connection with their large backyard and patio.

Structural changes created more visual harmony with the outdoors and with the living and dining areas of the home and added a significant amount of light to the kitchen. Colors and materials were selected to echo the lush greenery outdoors. A carefully planned layout encompasses space for all the appliances expected in a modern kitchen, along with a home for the couple’s large collection of cookbooks and efficient areas for prep and cooking. The couple now invite guests into their dream kitchen to share the room’s warm, naturally artistic vibe and its welcoming, open space.
