Ann and Dan keep busy schedules (Ann's a producer, Dan's a musician) so when it came time to renovate and revamp their 1920's Silver Lake kitchen, they called in the help of a pro. Eco Natalie (aka Natalie Freidberg) guided the pair to a clean and modern new kitchen — and it's environmentally friendly, to boot.
Scroll to the end of the photo gallery to see a handful of "Before" pics. Ann and Dan had their work cut out for them — they had to rip out three walls, cabinets and flooring to achieve their vision. Luckily, they found themselves in the capable hands of Natalie who steered them towards cork flooring with a mix of concrete and PlybooStrand countertops. PlybooStrand is a mix of plywood and bamboo (as the name suggests). For us, the wow factor has to be the stained green concrete countertops with custom paint chosen to highlight the open cabinets. And let's be honest, the cork flooring is kinda awesome — laid out in 1x3 seamless panels. The remodel took just one month but breathed an entire new life and vibe into the couple's home.
