My client, Eden Passante of Sugar and Charm and her husband Zan worked with architect Greg Coleman (who I love and worked with when we thought we might add a second floor to our LA house) to rework a cramped and dated kitchen to open it up into a spacious kitchen and dining room. They added square footage along with re-working the entire layout. Eden then brought me on board to design the new kitchen and dining room and I couldn’t be more excited with how it turned out.We refinished the old solid oak hardwoods to breath new (lighter) life into the space. Fireclay brick tile in Olympic goes all the way from the countertop to ceiling which brings some old charm to the brand new space. Eden’s aesthetic is modern but not without character which is why the line of modern beaded cabinet doors from my line with SemiHandmade was the perfect fit for the space. We used IKEA boxes and then Semihandmade for the fronts – my favorite, and ultimate, IKEA hack. SemiHandmade also made the custom Oak floating shelves and large farmhouse sink was a score on Overstock. Eden is BIG on entertaining so Caesarstone countertops were a no brainer for their durability and beauty. Her slab is called Statuario Maximus.

We found this stunning vintage rug from Old New House which is a showstopper and makes the room. I also convinced her to spring for my favorite Josef Hoffman dining chairs which are a match made in heaven. Designed in the 1920’s and still SO current, it is amazing to see furniture design like this stand the test of time.
And because the before and after’s are the best part… here is a look at where we started.
BEFOREA pretty insane overhaul right? The roaming chickens might be my favorite part but the whole project is doing a good job of tiding me over until I get my own dream kitchen.
