This project was a kitchen and living room addition built by our friends at Main Built. We always love collaborating with them. Additions are tricky because it’s trying to marry the old charm with the new materials. This home had so many beautiful moments already like the colonnades and pretty staircase. We chose traditional forms with a little edge to bring the old and new together.
We love designing black and white rooms (one of my personal favorite aesthetics!) but it can be challenging to make the space feel warm and personal to the client with such a contrasting palette. We carefully selected each piece to bring texture, interest and personality to the space. We think the result is layered in love and charm—Just the way a house should be!
The windows (floor-to-ceiling windows are such a fabulous touch considering the view!) and white walls allow for darker styling elements so I knew we could get a way with black furniture and accents. I think the result is stunning.
