custom kitchen upgrades

home tour {kitchen}

This new-construction home in the Memorial area has an oversized kitchen that opens into the living room, perfect for entertaining. The large island, glass backsplash, and quartzite countertops are some of our favorite features. The customized vent-a-hood, professionally faux painted by Brigitte Howell, really stands out as a unique accent piece in this beautiful space.

Check out the kitchen before and after the vent-a-hood was completed.

Brigitte layered the vent-a-hood with several coats and colors to add texture and depth, with the end goal an aged stone finish. What do you think of the finished look?

 Our clients Lisa and Darrell have four children, so worked with Cathy to design a space ideal for large gatherings of friends and family. 

Below, the breakfast room flows right in to the kitchen. We found the antique crystal ball light fixture at Old World Antieks in La Grange - we never miss their Round Top booth each year! The framed prints were collected by Lisa and are a great focal point in this room.

it's in the details

We love that the island seats four for large gatherings or even when it's just their family of six hanging out.  The details and size of the island make it really unique. The glass-brick backsplash is also fabulous - it's hardy, and "on-trend", though it will continue to look wonderful for many, many years. 

Here you can see the full view of the kitchen when standing in the living room. What a great space!
