A CONDO

From Drab to Sleek + Modern

THE STORY

From Drab to Sleek + Modern

A space that felt like a cave was just dying for a gut renovation and to be designed into a beautiful and aesthetically pleasing space that featured a city view through the large living room windows. And so the transformation began.

We spent a ton of time on the front end exploring different kitchen layout options with the client to see what would work the best for the clients needs. The client had a love for cooking when they had a little spare time off from their busy work schedule, so the need for storing not only every day kitchen items, but also special kitchen items was our challenge!

By taking down the suspended upper cabinets, that left the client with less storage space, so we had to get creative. The large L peninsula was underutilized and sat well over 8 barstools, which was un-necessary for a space of this size. A small dinner party would only hold at best 5 or 6, so we eliminated the spot for so many barstools. Instead, we capitalized on that space to create more cabinet storage on both sides of the peninsula on the longer side of the L. We also capitalized on small returns and nooks in the kitchen area by installing floating shelving and skinny cabinets in small wall returns.  

 

The client and I often joked that they had a bit of Vegas glam in their blood and desired for small touches of glitzy and glam. With the simplicity of our finishing selections, we were able to accomplish this by using small touches of glam in a wallpaper accent in the kitchen and living room, the backsplash and pops of fun tile in the bathrooms, and light fixtures. I was sorry to report back that the client's velvet Elvis didn't make the cut in the new design. 

After a year long process of first gutting the place for a new design, and then selecting the perfect furnishings for the space, the condo was finally complete. Every square inch of this condo had been re-designed.  It doesn't even look like the same space!
