She is an accomplished painter whose workspace was the back porch. He wanted a brighter, more functional kitchen for their quaint ranch house.
The solution: add an airy, vaulted studio on the back of the house and reconfigure the rest of the house to make room for a larger, brighter kitchen with views to the garden and the hills beyond. The materials were chosen to provide the perfect backdrop for her paintings and their beautiful vintage rugs. The cabinet color matches a custom paint mixture by the artist. Corner windows in the kitchen provide expansive views while transom windows in the studio open up the space to the outdoors.
