This is the home my client grew up in. The kitchen, once lovingly remodeled by her parents, had seen decades of happy memories- and considerable wear. Everything functioned okay, but it was time for an update. With bold decisions and no fear of color, we embarked on a full overhaul. The general footprint didn’t change, but everything else did.
The transformation extended into the breakfast room. The existing claw-foot oak table was the perfect size for the space and still had tons of character, although it had yellowed a bit with time. So naturally, we upcycled! By stripping and whitewashing the top and painting the base in a glossy green-blue-grey (from the same color family as the custom cabinets), we breathed new life into a vintage gem.
The beautiful custom window shades are from The Shade Store and our decorative porcelain tile backsplash is from Art Tile in Oakland- yes, it is porcelain, made to look like encaustic/cement! So fabulous, right?
This is such a happy home, full of style and charm…and now we’re on to the living room!!!
