A Warm Space to Put Your Feet Up

This full-scale remodel transformed a dated traditional home into a sleek and optimized space for gathering and entertaining. Key areas of focus were space flow and serving surfaces in the kitchen, comfort and efficiency in the family/ media room, and strategic accent lighting. We enlarged the kitchen to allow space for two islands and various functional zones, and added large windows for natural light and a view outdoors. All flooring was replaced with natural white oak, and a soft color palette is the backdrop for a stunning art collection. The fireplace and family room wall were completely reworked to unify the space and add drama, while also accommodating media and storage needs.

Having had the pleasure of recently working with Laura Burton on a large renovation I can honestly say, Laura is a dream to work with. Laura’s years of experience and knowledge of green design & the latest design trends make her a key component to any successful project.
