A family came to us looking to add a space for a kitchen addition that was better-suited to their lifestyle. With the idea that the kitchen is the heart/hub of the family's daily activities, we added design elements to help incorporate best use of the space. This included adding an island for homework, a window seat, plenty of storage and quiet seating area by the fireplace. The new kitchen flows beautifully in to the dining area and creates a lovely connection to the garden beyond. Painted white, shaker cabinets and a neutral color palette combines beautifully with subtle hints of color and nautical decor elements.
