Modern Appeal


The owners of a DC rambler wanted to transform their small, outdated 1950s kitchen into a large, open space full of light—contemporary but not cold. They called on Design Studio International to do the job, which involved doubling the size of the kitchen by combining it with the former dining room, which allowed access to more natural light through the dining room windows. The designer added more workspace, along with a partition to separate the kitchen from the new dining area. Splashes of bright, unexpected color, clean-lined cabinetry and modern finishes complete the effect.
