This couple found me through a referral on Facebook. They recently moved from San¬†Francisco¬†to Riverside into a large, empty house just waiting to be filled with beautiful furnishings and a personal touch. They wanted to start in the kitchen, since it’s the room they use the most. What we did was stain the current cabinets a rich, dark finish and added sleek, stainless hardware. The counter tops were replaced with Cambria quartz and the back splash I designed from a variety of tiles. Pendant lights were added above the island and a chandelier above the new eat-in area. Comfortable seating was important, since they spend a lot of time in this room, so upholstered swivel bar stools sit next to the island and a round table with extra large seats were added to create a breakfast nook. A Roman shade, made from the same fabric as the bar stools and drapes were hung to add a softness and also to block the sun and heat. Now their kitchen is complete and is currently being used every day as the family hub. The next project in this home will be the formal living room and dining room.
