A new wing was added in 2009 that doubled the living footprint in this Midcentury Modern home. It holds a capacious master suite with fireplace and luxurious wet-room style bath, 50-foot summer pool, full outdoor kitchen, covered entertainment area, and guest quarters with private entry.
Even though the kitchen space is small, designers wanted to create an open feel without sacrificing functionality, so they added a slender kitchen island with intuitive cabinet design and a long countertop for plenty of storage and prep space.
A sleek, sharp island fills the floor space in this shining midcentury modern kitchen. Mustard yellow bar chairs add a retro influence and counter the bright finishes of the walls and cabinetry. Gray and white tile create a full wall backsplash pattern behind floating shelves and a stainless steel range hood. Glass pendant lights bring extra light to solidify the bright finish.
A stainless steel range hood fits between the white cabinets over this black stovetop and white countertop. A gray and white circular pattern backsplash decorates the solid color fixtures. Rose gold cabinet handles add a sheen to the room complimented by a matching utensil holder.
The designers at Brio Interior Designs transformed a small, cluttered kitchen into a Midcentury masterpiece. Walls were demolished to create an open concept concept design throughout the house. Large bottom cabinets replaced the metal shelving the couple was using for storage, and their outdated appliances were replaced with state of the art stainless steel ones. Designers then added details that show off the couple's personality, such as the red patterned rug that adds a bit of flair, while modern light fixtures help the large windows over the countertop to provide light to the kitchen.
A 13' long island with a kitchen sink, prep sink, dishwasher and microwave provides plenty of space to prep, cook and clean on one side, while a breakfast bar provides seating for five on the other side for eating and entertaining.

The homeowners were not interested in a white kitchen, but instead wanted something with a little bit of color, so designers brought in custom walnut cabinetry to bring the space to life. Those cabinets were topped with Luche de Luna quartzite counters and a waterfall island in the same stone. Finally, the design was finished with royal blue velvet stools with gold legs that bring out the warmth in the quartzite and complement the Brutalist chandelier.
