If I died and came back as a kitchen, I would want it to be this one. Working with Mandy Moore
and Architect Emily Farnham
to completely gut renovate an ill fitting traditional kitchen in the mid-century home was maybe the most satisfying kitchen renovation to date. The one good thing the early 90’s renovation brought us was square footage since Mid-Century homes aren’t known for large kitchens, but the rest was a quick goodbye. We worked to take out clashing lines and curved architecture and brought back a more modern aesthetic, while also adding elements like marble slabs and floating shelves which make it feel very now.
Previously a curved alcove, we removed the french doors and replaced them with Fleetwood sliders to match the rest of the home’s existing windows and doors, the breakfast nook now is an seamless extension of the kitchen. A Lambert and Fils chandelier hangs above a Saarinen style table and wooden chairs bring warmth to the poured terrazzo floors and all the white.
As you’ll see below, we had a lot of work to do. The ceiling was a mish-mash of lines that we needed to streamline, the mall looking skylight was replaced with a flat glass one, new Cedar and Moss pendants were installed and all that was just from the ceiling up! We did custom cabinetry and had them painted in Farrow & Ball’s “Mizzle
. The white custom range hood, shelves and all the walls are painted in Farrow & Ball’s “All White”
Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane to see where we started…
