Project Summary

After owning their 40-year old home for more than 15 years, these clients found themselves in an environment that no longer suited their lifestyle. Their children had grown from babies to teenagers, while their parents had aged and were coming to stay for longer visits. With family togetherness central to the clients’ values, the new kitchen was designed to be open to a remodeled great room and adjacent family room. The new kitchen design is influenced by the clients’ desire for a modern space that is beautiful and sophisticated, but unpretentious and well-suited for family life. The design is an artful interpretation of California Coastal aesthetics, combined with contemporary notes and softer elements inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement.
