To grant the homeowners' wish that their kitchen have an intimate cooking space as well as a more accessible entertaining area, the designers took out a brick wall and combined two rooms to create this open plan layout. The custom cabinets are walnut.
The peaceful mood in this transitional living room is created with coastal-inspired blues and grays, lots of natural light and a simple, open feel. Area rugs help mark out different conversational groupings in the large floor plan.
In this corner of the entryway, a small black cabinet fits perfectly. Abstract black and white art decorates the wall, with two spiky sconces on either side. A large terrarium rests on the entry's cabinet to complete the fresh design.
