Interior Project: Multi-space

Chronicles of a Home Addition

This renovation began with a kitchen update and a third-stall garage addition that eventually grew into an opportunity the owners couldn’t pass up. The expansion created space for the kitchen, a nook for a desk area in the upstairs dormer and—the most exciting of them all—a themed play space for the grandkids based on The Chronicles of Narnia, complete with access through an antique French armoire. This magical space features custom-designed cabinetry, walnut parquet floors and a mural showcasing a specific scene from the movie. The hideaway also includes porthole windows, timber framing and a private loft.

At the outset of the kitchen project, the clients knew they wanted a unique gold edge around navy inset cabinets paired with the famous red knobs on a Wolf range. The design team guided the clients through the process to find the perfect design tailored to their preferences and lifestyle.

The kitchen redesign ultimately overcame its cramped, U-shaped layout with the expansion, allowing for a more open and functional culinary space. The focal point is the 48-inch Wolf gas range and custom hood on one wall, complemented by a large cabinet run. The addition of an oversized island provides balance, flow and ample counter space. Inspired by images presented by the client, the kitchen’s new aesthetic focuses on a crisp yet timeless feel with a classic touch—namely, the gold-edged details, the white perimeter cabinets and the dark-blue accent cabinets and island base.

The blend of traditional and modern elements, accented with bespoke details and thematic designs, reflects a harmonious and personalized approach to the home’s overall aesthetic.
