What a nice living room, with vaulted ceiling, dramatic beams, nonstop windows, and luxurious couches you could sink into for days. But brace yourself for something entirely different.
Here's a full-length shot of the room that really shows off that impressive ceiling and the amazing wooden beams. I love the concept of a living area arranged around a view, but I also love what they did with the space instead:
Wow! It took me a WHILE to be sure that this was the same space, as it's been transformed in both form and function. It's now a kitchen! The carpet has been replaced with beautiful wood flooring, the built-in cabinetry looks completely meant-to-be, the beams have been beautifully updated, and those pendants suit the space perfectly. I love the unifying palette of black, white, gold, and pale and dark wood. Oh, and that cabinet on the left? Why, it's the fridge.
This masterful makeover was done by Raelyn Woltz of West End Interiors, who worked with a special client in New York:
We redesigned this entire living area of this home to create a functional, larger kitchen and family room. My client is very style savvy, and had a mix of modern, French, farmhouse, transitional vision in her head that we brought to life. The details throughout the space are extraordinary.
Take a look at this detail shot that shows beautiful, fascinating craftsmanship.
The posts in the island are inlaid into the countertops, the refrigerator built in to create symmetry, and the two-tone hutch cabinets create a beautiful and sophisticated room.
Here's a bonus shot of the little space that's located to the right of the kitchen, a.k.a. the world's most glamorous mudroom. Thank you, Raelyn Woltz and West End Interiors!
