His Desire

Our Solution


This interior started as a typical 90's 'spec' home which had more than adequate but poorly laid out space, making it ideal for a renovation with no need for foundation changes or roofing additions.

We kept the kitchen in the same location but created a new layout, updated appliances, and crisp white cabinetry. We made minor wall adjustments, and added large casement windows to expand the view of the garden.

To give the living room distinction from the kitchen, we replaced the cabinets with new bookshelves and lighting which provided useful book storage. Above the fireplace we added horizontal boards to emulate shiplap siding proffering layered texture and character.

Between the kitchen and TV room, we reduced the width and height of the opening to differentiate them. To accommodate this change, we chose to eliminate an extraneous pull-up peninsula bar.
