A mix of high-and low-priced items and high-energy colors make for a striking living room. The slipcovered sofa opens up to reveal a full-size mattress. Seagrass wingback chairs and a rattan runner offer a touch of the tropics and a mix of patterns on the curtains and throw pillows creates visual interest.
This “room of memories,” as Kate calls it, was originally a porch, but she opened the space up and reinsulated it to create a nook for playing games. The vintage Kate Marker Home chairs are so cozy (and peep the rattan pendant) that it’s easy for Kate and her family to disconnect from technology and spend quality time together in this space. Bonus: The patterned TK sofa folds out creating ample sleeping room for renters and guests.
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too the previous kitchen is now a powered room and storage in the newly expanded kitchen. The kitchen sits where the dining area used to be, extending into the dining/living room where the country kitchen now sits. A custom kitchen dining table extends from the Ceasarstone countertop island called Misty Carrera. The layout was inspired by the Italian kitchen where the household help would often eat at their workspace, thus the extended island and dining table. The chandelier sits over the fixed island as the dining table is bound to be moved around. The dining chairs are an eclectic collection of Eames and Ikea rattan, mismatched to give the feeling of an informal gathering where newly added guests will pull up any chair they can find. The island houses a microwave and lots of storage space and ample storage is found on the back wall where there was once the kitchen. The cabinets are stained opaque, both grey and white, with Benjamin More. The flooring found throughout stone brown red oak from Mercer. The wall color is called Milk Paint from Behr.
