The homeowners were eager to embrace some new ideas and move outside their comfort zone. They wanted a calm, neutral palette that would be soothing. The kitchen and living room receive a lot of sunlight, so it’s always bright and cheery. This allowed us to use a fairly monochromatic palette.
On the first visit we discussed the necessity of three eating areas – kitchen table, kitchen island and dining room. It made sense to keep the dining room because the kids aren’t home all the time and when they are, meals turn into a dinner party.
When it’s just the two of them, the homeowners enjoy eating at the island. They also like grabbing a light meal or coffee in the lounge chairs where their kitchen table used to be. We debated whether to do a small bistro table or an upholstered bench. Being able to put the feet up won over a place to put a plate.
