This cozy cottage remodel project began with a conversation about improving the flow of the older home. We opened the floor plan to increase the visual and physical space. The kitchen became a central hub, housing a dining space and providing connections to the living area and sewing studio. We also found room for an expanded pantry — a real feat for a period home.
We left the bungalow’s inherited fireplace and charming corner cabinets untouched, preserving the integrity of the space and providing inspiration throughout the rest of the home. The artistic clients welcomed custom upholstered furnishings, making the small space all the more functional and stylish with carefully selected fabrics and materials.
A cork-covered hallway reflected the personalities of the artistic clients with their essential collection of sketches and mementos from travels. The gallery is illuminated with overhead sconces, celebrating the cork wall posts all the more.
