Homeowner Desired Outcome
This 1.5-story house was built during 1929 in a Tudor cottage style. The homeowners wanted to create a more open layout downstairs by combining the kitchen, the living room, and an office while keeping the newly designed space in style with the rest of this University Park home.
Our Creative Solution
All walls dividing the rooms were demolished and a small addition was built onto the home for a drastically improved layout. The original hand-scraped hardwood flooring was kept and matched throughout as it provides warmth and continuity. To ensure the new finishes blended seamlessly with the remaining house, the designer chose a clean white palette with splashes of blue. The backsplash is a pearl white subway tile from arranged in a classic herringbone pattern to compliment the new Taj Mahal quartzite with leathered finish countertops. Flemish glass was utilized in the top cabinet doors to further elevate the kitchen.
Where the range originally stood along an existing wall, now sits a bespoke island with a blue, painted base and a walnut, flat grain wood countertop situated below two chic Park Harbor pendant lights with an antique silver finish adding energy and creating a focal point in the kitchen area.
