Vintage Los Altos
One of the critical issues with this house before the remodel was flow. The front door was situated in a very awkward spot.
Once we recognized the problem, we worked with the architect and builder to move the front door.
In addition to the front door relocation, a load bearing wall was removed and the fireplace was re-positioned. Built-in bookcases and credenza were created and the kitchen was given a face-lift with new cabinet doors, appliances, counter tops, and plumbing fixtures.
The color palate and texture palates incorporated natural hues and textures.
This space needed a dining table that had just the right options. A center pedestal eliminated awkward table legs that limit seating. 48" was too small, 60 was too big. Finally, a 54" extendable table was identified which works perfectly. Open weave chairs and an area rug create a comfortable space for kitchen dining.
The boxes for these cabinets were original but changing the door faces and painting made a huge difference in the appearance of the kitchen paired with an organic granite counter, the kitchen is clean and inviting.
The counter was extended beyond the original cabinet footprint to allow for casual seating at the island.
Reclining sofa and chairs coupled with premade curtains and inherited items creates a very comfortable space for relaxing and watching television.
Original art in the bedroom creates a focal point and adds color and personality to a space.
Making outdoor space comfortable for entertaining was a priority during 2020 and continues to be a trend in 2021. This patio was enlarged to create plenty of space and a comfortable sectional was added to make an outdoor refuge.
Transitioning a child's bedroom into a sanctuary for the returning adult child is always fun. Incorporating childhood photographs is childhood especially sweet.
