The vision for the space was to create a livable, functional space for the homeowners. Their love for modern design paired perfectly with the quaint cottage architecture and geography of the home. By removing the one wall in the space that used to define the kitchen, the designers were able to open the floor plan up and maximize the square footage and natural lighting. The living area features a comfy gray sectional paired with modern black chairs and coffee table. A geometric rug anchors the space and adds interest and dimension.
