The open floor plan for the living area and dining space finds unity in the bright white color palette with sea green and pink accents. The soft colors draw focus on the real showstopper: floor-to-ceiling views of Puget Sound.
The open concept and flow of this home allows guests to follow the brick walkway up to the beautiful front door. Following a straight line will lead guests from the front entrance to the back door where the brick walkway picks up again on the back patio.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines removed the wall between the Purks' kitchen and dining room to create a more open concept feel. They installed a natural wood support beam in it's place. The appliances were replaced and moved to the other side of the room- a new washer and dryer is now located in the laundry room. All new white cabinets and black marble countertops bring a modern look to the kitchen, and two hanging globe light fixtures illuminate the breakfast bar.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines removed the wall between the homeowners' dining room and kitchen and installed a natural wood support beam in its place. The dining room is illuminated with a metal chandelier and staged with bright, comfortable chairs and a dining table set with blue plates and French Country accessories and greenery. The new French doors open to the backyard and offer additional natural light.
This wide view of the kitchen highlights the open layout and the beautiful stairwell with custom-made railing. The stairwell connects the home’s three levels and replaces an existing staircase enclosed in dry wall. “It was like a big dinosaur in the room,” says project manager Scott Branscom. “The stairs also separated the kitchen from the living room and blocked your view.”
The textured accent wall and contemporary pendant light are standout features in this open concept kitchen. The breakfast bar with a red and gray granite countertop pairs well with the red-brown cabinets.
Joanna Gaines, of HGTV's hit show Fixer Upper, wanted to give these homeowners the kitchen of their dreams. They desired a modern, rustic open concept kitchen, but their previous kitchen was small and closed in, so Chip and Joanna knocked down the walls surrounding the space to give the kitchen more square footage, but also to provide the homeowners with the open concept home they've been longing for.
