The open concept of this casual, yet bright and modern living area is perfect for entertaining. With direct access to the kitchen, the dining area and the living room, a person could be in any of these spaces, while remaining a part of the action.
A built-in banquette in the kitchen doubles as a window seat with an array of pillows in three different patterns. The chunky, country-style dining table has room to seat five more around the table, and beautiful gray French doors allow easy access to the backyard.
Through the dining room, the owners can access the breakfast nook and eat-in kitchen -- a layout that makes entertaining guests practically effortless. While they're prepping dinner, their guests can take their pick of the wishbone-style chairs and have a seat at the reclaimed wood table.
An oversized island centers this gorgeous kitchen, creating extra prep space and a perfect spot for casual dining. Crisp white cabinets and a white tile backsplash make the space feel bright and open. The corner of the room provides access to the butler's pantry, which offers extra storage space.
This stunning waterfront property on Massachusetts' Chapoquoit Island offers water views from every room. The Cape Cod-style home features indoor and outdoor living space with access to sailing, tennis and beach activities. A picturesque red brick patio allows the owners and their guests to enjoy dining al fresco or to simply lounge outdoors and relish the beautiful views.
The homeowners of this 1930s Tudor wanted a modest renovation to improve their kitchen and open the space to the rest of the house. As the project continued to evolve, renovations continued into to the family room, guest room, bathroom, main entry, sunroom, dining room, art room and a new breakfast room. The garage is laid out at an angle to the original family room, opening up the courtyard for vehicles and providing access to a mudroom door and the side turret entrance.
