Having recently downsized, this couple wanted to update an old layout that didn’t function well. Once we removed a peninsula and relocated the refrigerator, we created space for an island and pantry storage. Turning our attention to the underused breakfast nook, we built in banquette seating and more storage for dishes, small appliances and a hidden home office with printer and USB ports. The colorful accent tile, wallpaper and upholstery give this room sophistication and personality – a perfect reflection of its owners.
