Sometimes we live in the perfect house, in the perfect neighborhood, but with the wrong kitchen. Does this sounds familiar? It does to many people! The years go by and the more we look at our cabinets and the kitchen layout, the more we wish we could tear it all down and start all over again. With interiors by Amy Tausk of Swoon Interiors and with cabinet and architectural design by Stephanie Frees of Plain and Posh, this home’s owners finally had all of their wishes come true! Their old kitchen felt too traditional with an odd layout and the tile flooring was terrible – it was hard to keep it clean with their deep grout lines. A nightmare for any cook!
Here, Stephanie Frees explains more about the configuration of the space: “When I was brought in to the project, the homeowners wanted to be able to get more light in to the space. It faces East and North and there is a covered patio outside the large north windows that blocks most of that light. As the space was so large, we opted to open up two doorways from the kitchen into the dining room to allow the south facing window light to stream in to the kitchen.”
Take notes on the sources shared by the designer and get ready to pin! I am sure you will feel inspired by this kitchen and dining room renovation.
The foyer opens directly to a newly renovated dining room.
The hardwood flooring was existent to the house.
“We wanted a light and soothing color scheme and the design all started with this gorgeous green-gray grasscloth wallpaper. My clients wanted it to feel elegant but not too fussy or formal. I think we achieved that with the lighter wood tones and the more casual side chairs.” – Amy Tausk of Swoon Interiors.
This two-toned sideboard is from One Kings Lane.
A round mirror creates some balance and reflects the natural light in this dining room.

According to the designer, the warm wood planks were stained to coordinate with the island and wood beam above the stove niche.

The pantry doors feature fluted glass and brass knobs.
“The new plan called for breaking through that pantry wall into the former Butler’s Pantry and creating a functional yet lovely walk through pantry that could be accessed from either side of the kitchen.” – Amy Tausk.

Kitchen Renovation Details: “We opened up the wall on either side of the range to create two entrances to the dining room and flood the kitchen with it’s beautiful light.
