A 1980's oak kitchen gets a major overhaul, adding beauty and functionality to this family home.
Our client craved a more contemporary space and an awkward peninsula + island configuration meant there was room for efficiency and storage to be gained in this kitchen.
We reconfigured the kitchen's layout to be more efficient and installed a statement-making island that provides a fantastic work surface for cooking, baking, and homework.
A grey-veined quartz in a waterfall edge is an eye-catching detail on the island and ties in with the marble hexagon backsplash throughout the kitchen's perimeter.
We used hardwood planks on the front of the island as a warm, interesting detail. Medium grey stools in faux leather add softness and texture in contrast to the kitchen's other surfaces and tie in well with the grey veining in the countertop.

I know there are plenty of sugar cookie recipes out there but this one is THE absolute best sugar cookie recipe if you ask me! They're almond-y + sweet + light - oh so good!
From the beginning, I knew I would love working with this energetic family of four - they were fun, organized, and decisive. They knew they wanted a light-filled space that still felt warm + inviting and finishes that didn't force them to choose between browns and greys.
I've been noticing this versatile material all over the design world lately and after a recent trip to Europe, I'm even more convinced that terrazzo is back for a more refined round two. Don't believe me? Have a look at how some of today's most talented architects and designers are using terrazzo in ultra modern installations + product design.
Nestled in the hills of Topanga Canyon, a mere thirty minutes from Los Angeles, is an everyday oasis from the hustle of city life. I've adored the home of artist + General Store founder Serena Mitnik-Miller since the moment I laid eyes on it.

In rounding out our #SpringIntoHome series, I thought I would draw some attention to five specific design lessons we can learn from my talented colleagues (that they're using in their own homes!) and I'll share one of my own as well!
