"The main focal point in the guest house bedroom area is the beautiful carriage doors next to the bed," says Wijaya. To achieve this overall look, she and her team added horizontal shiplap and wide shelving above the doors to soften the appearance, and make them look less like actual doors. "By adding beams to the ceiling in the guest house bedroom and using different wall textures in each space, we created a complex multi-dimensional space," she adds. The final result? Creating the illusion of a separate bedroom, kitchen, sitting area and bathroom, "even though they are all in one big open space," she notes. Mission accomplished.

Designers wanted to create a bright, open space for the homeowners, but the second wall in the kitchen was load bearing, so instead of taking it out, they maximized the kitchen's functional space by adding shelves for storage and display space and lower cabinets for counter space.

During the renovation process, the kitchen was one of the major points of focus. To begin with, he opened the wall separating the space from the living room. “The kitchen was a tiny box and the space needed more light,” he says. From there, some cabinets were removed, while others had their facades changed; shelves and storage were built, and appliances were added and rearranged. “This was a big chunk of work, but it made a world of difference.” The finished space received a full treatment of Chris’ bohemian aesthetic, with shelves adorned with clay miniature houses as well as glasses, plants and food containers.
