A retired couple, aging-in-place, redesigns their home for future enjoyment
A beautiful Los Angeles courtyard house, nestled in lush green surroundings, needed an update to maximize the kitchen space and adjacent dining area. The goal was to create additional storage and working areas plus modernize the appliances, cabinetry, lighting, and fixtures. Ultimately, the owners would enjoy integrated and functional spaces for both cooking and entertainment.
The owners’ vision for colors and materials was used throughout. The outside landscape inspired the choice of colors, materials, and a design that maintained its casual, natural feeling.
The kitchen design continued into the dining area to integrate the two spaces, which were fully utilized with full-length custom cabinet storage and an adjacent banquette with additional storage and seating.
All surrounded the family’s treasured rustic wood table and matching chairs.
The remodel design expanded to create a dramatic enclosed entry, a perfect backdrop for their art collection. Finally, they also added a much-needed guest bathroom.
