The problem: An awkward layout
Closed off and cramped, there was nothing working about this family kitchen.
Solution: An updated floor plan
A swish of the wand (and hammer) and this small space went from cramped and dreary to open and fresh, the perfect match for this family.
Bringing the outdoors in
“I’m a firm believer in bringing the outdoors in,” says designer Trish Johnston. To liven up the space, she chose a durable light grey faux bois porcelain tile for the floor and glossy white subway tiles to run floor-to-ceiling behind the range. To counter all the white, Trish chose a bold wallpaper. “The cheery green pattern is so fresh and inspiring,” she says. Hits of natural texture and gold-toned hardware tie the whole look together. “It’s all big box but doesn’t feel like it,” explains Trish.
