There is nothing we love more than the opportunity to work with two of our favorite clients again! Three years ago, we helped these long-time homeowners remodel the main level and loft area in their beloved 1970s family home, transforming it into a space they could see themselves growing old in. We tackled the dated staircase, patchwork flooring, lighting, wall finishes, and fireplace. So, when they reached out again ready to remodel their kitchen and bathrooms- plus give their family room an aesthetic update- we were all in!

The client’s love for mid-century modern design is infused throughout the home. We took cues from the era, utilizing the balance of warm and cool tones, the incorporation of clean architectural lines, and the injection of lively patterns to make this home a welcoming blend of contemporary aesthetics and mid-mod vibes. If you look closely, you’ll even spot pieces from the client’s beloved vintage pottery collection in every space!


In designing the new layout for the kitchen, we decided to remove the pantry closet and expand into the former eat-in area. This gave us the opportunity to create a beautifully functional island with plenty of seating and prep space for multiple cooks in the kitchen. We were all still in love with the walnut flooring we installed during the first phase of this project and opted to lean into the classic tones and bring them into the cabinetry scheme. To balance all those gorgeous warm grains, we cooled the space down with a spunky hand painted tile that enlivens the space.


This long space needed flexibility above all else. As frequent hosts to their extended family, we made sure there was plenty of seating to go around, but also met their day-to-day needs with intimate groupings. Much like the kitchen, the family room strikes a balance between the warm brick tones of the fireplace and the handsome green wall finish. Not wanting to miss an opportunity for spunk, we introduced an intricate geometric pattern onto the accent wall giving us a perfect backdrop for the clean lines of the mid-century inspired furniture pieces.


Wanting the home’s guest bathroom to feel inviting and whimsical, we dove it to create a unique balance of saturated colors and lively patterns. Playing with geometric and organic patterns- from the simple tile grid to the nature inspired wallpaper, and slapdash terrazzo flooring- this space strikes a bold kinship of forms.


All this little gem needed was a facelift. We utilized a dynamic black and white tile on the floor to jazz it up and continued the incorporation of warm woods and pops of color that we brought into the rest of the home.


We can’t wait for phase 3!
