KITCHEN, AFTER: Removing a wall between the kitchen and dining room has created an open concept in this Atlanta home. The gourmet kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and granite countertops and an island that also has room for a breakfast bar.
Mixed styles create a wonderful result: The midcentury modern angles of the room; the lofty, coastal-style, plank-and-beam ceilings; a craftsman-style cabinet and an animal hide rug reflect the homeowner's unique style and personality. This hall leads to a lovely outdoor seating area -- It would be hard to decide whether to stay inside or out!
Cast iron cookware by Copco was inherited in various colors, and inspired the Fazio's kitchen color palette. A wall was removed to open the dining room and the living room. Modern stainless steel appliances and large floor tiles make the space feel more contemporary.
A thread of blue draws the eye through this open-concept living room, dining room and kitchen. Bold abstract art creates a focal point on a long wall, while blue acrylic chairs make a splash across the room. Sleek cabinetry and countertops give the kitchen a modern, streamlined aesthetic.

Just off the kitchen, this quaint breakfast nook has room for the whole family.

Connected to the living area and dining room, the foyer creates flow between the spaces with a soft, neutral color scheme. Modern art and funky light fixtures add both color and interest to the entryway.
The dining room’s traditional furnishings feel modern and contemporary with a mix of colorful pieces. An IKEA cabinet was painted in a rusty red and hardware was added to upgrade the piece.

Calming neutral tones pair with blue accents in this expansive open plan kitchen with coastal details.

This renovated kitchen is now located where the old dining room once was. A window was closed up to make room for the new stove and countertop area.

Modern pendant lighting add a rich golden color to the dramatic black walls and red bar stools.
