The main focus of this project was the renovation of the kitchen, and opening it up to the adjoining family room by removing the wall separating the two rooms. This Georgian style home, built in the early 1900's has wonderful details but was also renovated at some point with features that were not well executed, like the box beam ceiling in the kitchen that, while a wonderful idea was lacking in its execution. It can be challenging when combining two very distinct rooms, each with their own distinct design point of views. We integrated the two rooms by eliminating the box beam ceiling in the kitchen and bringing the wood detailing from the family room into the kitchen through the wood in the newly added island and crown molding.
Also updated in the family room was the fireplace, which was tiled in a great contemporary yet historic feeling cement tile.
The design of the living room, formal dining room and powder room was driven by color, layered textures, eye catching lighting and luxurious materials.
