A household kitchen retains its original brick but adds an eat‐in area also bright new cabinets This 1949 Los Angeles ranch had its charms, but in the kitchen the absence storage, funky old booths with cabinets past their primeweren't functional for the young household who were living there.
The owners had admired interior designer Thea Segal's light, clean‐lined also calming signature style on another one of her projects with wanted her to bring it to their house. At the same time maintaining the home`s original spirit was important to the designer.
"We remodeled the whole house for them but wanted to keep the integrity plus character of the house, especially the charming kitchen," Segal says. The resulting area balances white with warmer surfaces, functionality with open space as well as original elements with updated finishes.
"We always like an eat―in kitchen if we could have one. It is a great place to eat a quick snack or for the kids or adults to eat breakfast," Segal says. It was challenging to fit an eat‐in area into this layout, but Segal was able to install a counter with two stools. With the kitchen somewhat separate from other areas in the house, the eat―in area gives people a place where they could perch plus keep the cook company.
A sliding chalkboard on a barn‐door‐like track conceals an appliance garage. "This is really our signature detail. You could hide but also easily access your toaster, coffeemaker as well as any other electronic appliances," Segal says.
Texture keeps the space from feeling too sleek or cold; the adjacent shelves are backed in beadboard, in–conjunction with the designers added ornamental screening panels to the cabinets below. "This detail makes the kitchen feel softer in–conjunction with a little more airy," Segal says.
Segal kept the aboriginal brick around the existing grill together with the new range to maintain a strong connection to the original architecture. The brick warms the space as well as its texture helps to break up all the white.
A unique treatment on the ceiling boards as well as beams appends texture together with color. Segal used a discolouring method she honed while working on her furniture line. The vaulted ceiling appends to the open plus airy feeling, while the stained boards contribute warmth.
