In the warm, original climate of California, in the town of Santa Rosa, the family house of Vaughn is located. Readers will be surprised at how, with the participation of architect Loren Brandwen, the kitchen was redeveloped. Before small and devoid of any charm, it has become a real cozy nest for three people.
Its owners, Eric and Torgia, are keen on gardening. On the adjacent territory, they were able to recreate a small corner of paradise, and often enjoy its fruits.
Possessing huge creative potential, the couple for some time lost sight of the design of such a necessary and often used room, like a kitchen. Design solutions of the invited specialist allowed to bring this room in harmony with the surrounding space.
First of all, the master changed the layout of the premises, and combined the dining room with the working area. Before, the latter was in the back of the building, and was simply small and very dark. After redevelopment, natural light began to penetrate all corners of the complex, and the area of such an important room increased.

Then the kitchen with the dining room merged into one composition and actually changed places. Now the working surfaces are located at the window, and in the center of the room there is a dining table, which can also be used for culinary creativity. It also has a sink with two compartments.
More intelligently all the places for storing food and utensils were thought out. Stylish furniture takes into account the needs of the family in cabinets and shelves of various configurations, and hides them behind the beautiful, expensive facades of walnut. This breed of wood fits well with the floor of oak, polished to a pleasant smoothness. Natural shades, preserved through a translucent lacquer, look good against the backdrop of gently green walls.
A modern and very practical move is the unification of the working and dining tables in one surface.

In addition to the paints used, a tile with a shimmering iridescent surface was chosen. But the window frame and one cupboard acquired an aquamarine, rich tone. It fits perfectly into the chosen palette, and echoes with the garden motifs.
That wall of the room, which was previously closed by kitchen furniture, is now decorated with a picture and creates the illusion of an increase in the room. This is made possible by using a darker color of the wallpaper.

The layout of the kitchen after its modification
In the presented kitchen there is a lot of space and useful area for cooking. Impressive harmonious combination of colors in the interior of the kitchen – tiles, walls and furniture perfectly combined with each other. The dining table of the kitchen is more like a bar counter and does not create comfort, but if desired, you can move to lunch and in the dining room for a round table. The unusual design solution is creative and very modern – I liked it!
Combine the dining room with the kitchen and swap their seats was the most optimal solution. Thanks to this, both rooms were filled with light, there was a huge space for cooking, lots of shelves and boxes. The color scheme is chosen competently, all pieces of furniture are harmoniously combined with each other. On the island of the kitchen is a dining table, but it can be used for cooking, and lunch in the dining room at a huge table.
I think that when you trust a professional who has repeatedly created and equipped rooms, you get just an excellent result, and even better than expectations. The designer tries to take into account all the desires of the client, but at the same time observes certain rules according to which the room will be so comfortable and cozy that it does not want to change anything.
