This project is located in the heart of Nashville, west of downtown. The family had an outdated Kitchen that was dark and heavy. They wanted a new plan that would flow and work with their family’s lifestyle. We were hired to update the Kitchen, Living Room, and paint selections throughout the home.

Below is where we started.

In elevation#1 (E1) the Galley style kitchen had a standard size fridge right in the middle. Left of the fridge was a desk area (very common in 90’s Kitchen’s) and then to right a sink and prep zone.

In elevation #2 (E2) There was a tall storage pantry and corner cabinets.

In elevation #3 (E3) The range was across from the sink and double oven across from the fridge. All the way to the right was a beverage area with a small sink.

While I know this was separated to zone out the areas, these home owners wanted something that wasn’t so chopped up and that was more useful for the way they lived. See the before pictures below.

The design direction for this project is MODERN GRACE.

Modern Grace style is sophisticated yet simplistic, to allow for life, using contrasting colors as the detail in the space. Geared towards Nashville’s fast-paced lifestyle, this concept is perfect those living just outside our beautiful city. Filled with subtle impact and linear designs, Modern Grace creates an understated elegance with rich moods.

Below is the new floor plan

In Elevation #1 (E1) -We did away with the desk area as it was just a catch all and didn’t work for the family. We chose to anchor a new 48″ range oven between the two windows and paired it with a plaster hood above. We accented range wall with counter to ceiling tile and placed large sconces over the windows.

In Elevation #2 (E2) – We kept the corner storage with a hideaway cabinet for small appliances, but then lightened up the entry point with some open countertops and wall cabinets.

In Elevation #3 (E3) – Placing the paneled fridge at one end, we were able to create a large prep zone in the middle. For the drink station to the right, we kept the sink placement, but added a hideaway cabinet so when they are having company, they can close off those pocket doors.

Below are some more 3D renderings of the design

For the Design we chose high contrast elements such as the soft off-white cabinetry. It has a whisper of gray and compliments the countertops which are a white quartz. We added a white textured tile to the walls and a porcelain picket tile on the floor that has an interested marble inspired veining.

Now for the AFTERS!

We hope you love this transformation! We had a lot of fun with these clients and hope to do another project with them again in the future!
