Our Latest Reveal: A Contemporary Kitchen With a hint of Rustic Charm

Two summers ago, we received an email from our client, Celiana, who'd clearly done her homework about the renovation process. Her budget was well informed, Ideabooks and Pinterest boards were filled with her wishes, permit details from her city had been gathered and she was ready for us to completely gut her home and make it the dream space she'd always envisioned. 
We recently shared her master bathroom and laundry here, here, here and hereBut the kitchen was the truly most transformed space and so here we are, ready to give it its full reveal moment. 

This is where we started. 

A functional space, yet with a very choppy layout. And it had my number one kitchen pet peeve: a bar height peninsula. Why should your feet be dangling when seated in your own kitchen? IDK. But anyway, I digress. 
Reminder, this was a full gut job, so we also ripped out the floors and installed large format porcelain tiles in the still popular wood-look pattern; painted all walls and added new hurricane impact windows - and just in time since we had a major storm last year while Celiana was out of the country and she didn't have to worry much. Anyway, enough chatter. Here's how we are looking today. 

Deuces to the bar height peninsula and hello counter height island with loads of storage and style. 

This table! Soooooo many details to get this one made but shout-out to BP Imports for his amazing skills and attention to detail. And to our intern Kortney, whose barstools we used to style this photoshoot since Celiana is still pondering bar stool decisions :) 

Showed some major love to the cooking station as well by installing a vented hood and a new slide in range. 

Even though we expanded the kitchen by adding the island, the sink and stove stayed in their original location which is always a budget saver. 
We replaced the microwave with a hood and added a stunning backsplash behind the hood as well. 

We carried the backsplash across this wall to just below the live edge wood shelves. 

Open shelving still a contemporary must have it and why not? Easy access to some everyday essentials and a gray way to display your favorite pieces, including this art, a nod to Celiana's boyfriend who climbed mount Everest while we did this renovation. 

We made sense of this area by framing the refrigerator with two large pantries on either side. That arched wall was also removed.

And that's all folks. One of my favorite kitchen projects of all time. Subtle yet sexy and hella stylish. Huge thanks to Celiana and Santi for trusting us with such a major transformation and for already sending some great referrals our way. 

Also, another huge shout out to our photographer Ricardo of RMS Studio Corp and styling virtuoso Amanda at The Homebody Interiors for another eye-popping photo-shoot.
