As previously stated, our client had a specific budget which required us to minimize major structural renovations to the existing house. Therefore our goal was to open up the flow of the house to accommodate their active family and lifestyle and with the integration of appropriate moldings and millwork increase the level of detail in each room.

The majority of furniture, light fixtures, and artwork were re-purposed from the client’s previous interior design consultation with their close friend Nancy Hill, of Nancy Hill Interiors. Nancy will be pulling additional pieces together, and will bring a new feel to the space. Now that we have opened the house up from room to room, our goal is to have a fluid space with pieces that relate to one another and complement the new architecture.

We have included updated shots of the Kitchen with Breakfast Area, Family Room, Sun Room (previous Screened Porch), enlarged Living Room open to existing Stair, Dining Room, and Main Entrance Foyer.

Once again, we have included Before and After shots with captions.

Kitchen: In Progress

Our client wanted to maintain the general layout of their kitchen so we refined the layout of the cabinets, integrated larger cooking surfaces, added additional upper cabinets for storage and designed a larger island with additional storage. The window bench eliminated the need for an addition (thus saving an enormous amount of money). The result: a better utilized space, additional storage, and cabinetry that complements the new millwork and ceiling treatment.

Pending installation of pendents above island, cushions at window bench, and new table and chairs.
