Those who live in Coronado, Calif., will instantly recognize this home as Crown Manor, a legendary Tudor-style landmark on the coast. The estate was built in 1903 and sits just steps away from the iconic Hotel del Coronado.
The kitchen in this historic Tudor home was a bit outdated, so designers brightened the space up a bit with a fresh coat of paint and new cabinets and appliances.

New, white cabinets replaced older, outdated ones, and new appliances update the space, while still remaining true to the historic design of the home.

When updating a historic home in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles, Sabine Klingler Kane designed the kitchen around her clients’ butcher-block island. “My client had the island long before we started the remodel,” she says. “It looks perfectly vintage, but it is actually a reproduction made from reclaimed wood. It is ideal for their young daughter as she does not need to be careful with her crayons and spilling food. It has drawers on both sides, and wine storage underneath as well as shelves for cook books. But the best thing is: Two compartments on top have been outfitted with electrical outlets to plug in tablets, laptops, phones and small appliances. It also has towel bars and a bottle opener attached to it — it is not only great looking, but also totally practical and functional.”

These details keep the space feeling bright and airy. To maximize the function of the space and give the homeowners the open concept design they desired, designers opened up the wall between the kitchen and dining room to create visual continuity throughout the spaces.
