In Detail Interiors
This mid century modern home was beginning to resemble more of a “shabby chic” personality than the vibrant retro vision the homeowners desired. The budget was not large and we had to be creative in the approach to solving some of this kitchen’s style challenges. The client wanted a sleek modern look. Ok, that was half of the client! The other half, the wife, preferred more a kitschy colorful palette. To get the kitchen to harmonize as well as the two clients, ( after I informed them I charge extra for marital counseling!) we melded sleek lines with a colorful backdrop on the walls. The darker stained walnut cabinets were chosen to counterbalance the intensity of the eggplant wall paint. We chose blizzard ceasarstone to provide a stark contrast to the dark cabinets and coordinated the backsplash with an iridescent white porcelain cut into large squares. Instead of a stainless “table” for the electric cooktop, we opted for a less expensive laminated metal material to fabricate the legs of the cooking island. The opposite side houses the refrigerator, oven/microwave and two pantries. One a good sized pantry with pullouts and the other a shallower pantry that is home to food and overflow dishware. The glass in the doors mirrors the cubist glass in the front door and the handles are classically retro in design. All in all, this small kitchen has a powerful presence and the clients are happily cooking in harmony!
Wellborn + Wright
Wellborn + Wright has teamed up with Richmond native Cobblestone Development Group again for this incredible renovation. What was originally a constricting, one story brick ranch house from the mid 20th century is now a bright, soaring, three story home with a much more open and inviting floor plan. Be sure to flip through the slideshow above to the last 3 pictures which show the “before and after” versions of the kitchen and entryway. Wellborn + Wright was happy to provide the smooth surface box beams that ran along the ceiling and “sectioned off” the individual living spaces on the first floor – kitchen, living room, dining room – without actually dividing the space itself. A mantle (not shown) and kitchen island counter top made from reclaimed white oak can be found in the kitchen and living room respectively. It should be noted that, while W+ didn’t provide the flooring for this project, what you see here is an exact match to our South Hampton oak flooring – so if you like what you see on the floors just as much as the ceiling, we can definitely help you there!
