LDD transformed this long, narrow space into an ultra-functional kitchen and living area, putting a contemporary spin on traditional elements. Cabinets in light and dark finishes conceal tons of storage for this active family, including a locker system that seamlessly blends into the space. A seating area near the fireplace provides a cozy, relaxing gathering space. During the day, natural light pours in, highlighting the rich textures and surfaces abundant throughout, while at dusk oversized, antique fixtures create light and warmth. Every element was considered, from the oversized clock framed with mail holders and key hooks, to the bead board wrapping the end of the island, and the contrasting leathered countertops for the island and perimeter. The combination of classic and modern amenities incorporating high and low design is a testament to Lisa’s “cashmere and blue jeans” style in her life and work.
