Have you ever had a friend that you are always on the same page with? That no matter what season of life you’re in, you can look at each other and just go “yep.” Well, I’ve been fortunate to have that very friend since grade school and we’ve been in sync (and to many *NSYNC concerts) ever since.

Not only is she one of my best friends, but she was also one of my first official clients! She and her wonderful husband decided to take a chance on me to help renovate their home – and I could not be more grateful or excited with how it turned out.

I worked with them to locate the right house for their family (I am also a licensed realtor) and then we got to work on bringing some magic to the house. The house, itself, was built in the 50s and already had some fantastic bones. The previous owners took great care of the home so is was mostly cosmetic updates and opening up a wall to improve the traffic flow of the floor plan.

The end result is a stunning chef’s kitchen that will host many family gatherings and will stand the test of time. It is so classically beautiful, yet modern, that it will easily evolve with my friend’s family through all their seasons of life.

By opening the wall, we were able to add an island that has become the hub of the kitchen; great for family meals and entertaining. And how gorgeous is that Arabescato dolomite slab??
