Project: A Tailored Home
When you are a young and active family you tend to demand a lot from your home. The spaces in between the walls need to work for you now, and as your needs (and your kids) change and grow. We took our client’s family home on a transformative journey, turning their house into a home that’s perfectly tailored to their vibrant lifestyle.
We started the renovation in the kitchen, where the family gathers for meals and quality time. To accommodate mealtime together, we opened up the kitchen and breakfast nook, giving it a spacious, unified feel. The pièce de résistance is the custom-colored kitchen island, a focal point that not only adds a bit of personality but also serves as a hub for family activities.
Recognizing the importance of a designated space for managing the chaos of daily life, our design team carved out a “mom zone” near the kitchen entry. This area serves as a practical catch-all for schoolwork, electronics, and more. But it’s not just about functionality – the space seamlessly transforms into a chic bar when needed, striking a perfect balance between practicality and style.
From the kitchen area, we moved on to the mudroom. Of course, if you live in New England then you know that winters can be challenging. Add kids to the mix and you know there are mittens, hats, snowsuits, boots…the list goes on! We recognized that our clients needed a solution to combat the mess that often accompanies snowy (and slushy) days. Enter the meticulously designed mudroom, featuring a durable quartzite tile floor that not only looks great but magically hides the mess of winter weather. Now, the family can enter and exit with ease, leaving the chaos at the door.
As our team got to know our clients more deeply, it dawned on us that they truly deserved a space of their own. With a busy lifestyle and young kids, it’s important to have a space where you can unwind and recharge. So, we continued the renovation journey upstairs where it extends to the addition of a dreamy primary suite above the garage. This private sanctuary provides these parents with a retreat, complete with carefully curated design elements that create a serene and stylish space.
As the dust settles on this interior design project, our clients are left with a home that not only meets their immediate needs but also evolves with them. From their lively family life centered in the now expansive kitchen to quiet moments in the private retreat of the primary suite, every corner of their home now reflects the love and energy of this adorable family.
