This couple wanted a fresh new look with high function. Kathy wanted a desk in the kitchen that she could close up when they were entertaining and Art wanted a large, open space for large gatherings. We first tackled the flow of the space by closing a door that wouldn’t be missed. This created additional space for the desk, a bar, a coffee station and two islands! We mixed rustic wood and oil rubbed bronze finishes that fit their casual lifestyle and added sophisticated details like the mosaic marble tile and decorative metal mesh inserts. The clients now have a kitchen they love that accommodates a growing family and busy lifestyle.
