Last week I shared the photos of the front of the Reseda Project. Today, I’m excited to share the before + after photos of the kitchen!

Reseda Kitchen

BEFORE

 Initially, the kitchen felt closed off from the rest of the home with only a small doorway from the dining room into the kitchen (above).

Even with gutting the kitchen, I was still limited on square footage and really needed to maximize this 200 sq. foot kitchen/laundry. In order to gain more storage and counter space, I eliminated the 2 smaller windows in the back corner, as well as the window on the left. In order to bring in natural light and a view of the backyard, I added a large picture window on the back wall, as well a full light glass door to the backyard.

One of my favorite ways to add a little beauty and drama to a home is by using large branches. I’ll clip them from pretty much anything and place them in vases, jars or even my favorite piece of pottery. Not only are they fun but they can last much longer than flowers. Below, are some of my favorite examples.

You know the saying, “Out of something terrible can come something wonderful.” This rang true for my clients in Austin when, after torrential rains hit a year ago, their home was completely flooded. Everything that we had rehabbed three years prior was completely destroyed. So, when they asked me back to help fix what had been destroyed, I was more than happy to come up with a new design for this wonderful family.

The overall interior color of the home was changed to a beautiful warm white. We went with darker floors, a new living room and a completely new kids’ bathroom — but I think I had the most fun in the kitchen.  With the first rehab we needed to work with the existing granite countertops and the original island position. This time, since we had to gut the entire kitchen, we were able to work with a blank canvas. My color palette was simple — a mix of creamy whites, antique brass, rattan and brick.

My inspiration behind this kitchen — brick for the backsplash, paint from Farrow & Ball for the island, a creamy piece of Silestone for the countertops, as well as my bracelet (a stand in for the future hardware).

Above, another shot of the kitchen. I was able to add a 10 foot island which has really become the heart of the kitchen. Food is prepared, meals are savored and homework is done.

With a new drainage system installed, it looks like I won’t be back anytime soon but it was a pleasure while it lasted. If you would like to view the initial post with before and afters, click here.
