Wendy Blackband and Rachel Azzolina of the Blackband Design team (previously featured here – a house tour you really can’t miss!) brought this home down to the studs and fully remodeled it into a modern Mediterranean open floor plan with hotel amenities. Their focus was bringing in warmth and comfort while creating additions and new layouts to best suit the homeowners’ lifestyle – including their two daughters Annie and Abbey (Golden Retrievers). Speaking for the pups, their favorite home features would most likely be the built-in food and water dish station in the kitchen island and their under-staircase sleeping nook in the master bedroom complete with a miniature headboard to match their parents. The homeowners recognized the value of investing in quality and luxurious details that they will forever appreciate in their dream home.
Feel free to pin your favorite interior design ideas, share this with you friends and most importantly, have a good time!
This home should impress and inspire you. The paint color throughout the house is “Simply White by Benjamin Moore” – this white paint color is often recommended by interior designers.
This home has so many impressive details and ideas. I am loving this newly-renovated kitchen with that huge island!
Kitchen Island Dimensions: about 9’6” x 6’5”
Can you believe this is the same house? The older kitchen felt dark and the “old Mediterranean” style had a heavy feel to it.
This home is located in a neighborhood where the houses feature Mediterranean-inspired architecture. It was important for the designers to respect the architectural details but they also wanted to reinvent this style and give it a more modern feel. This modern Mediterranean kitchen is a great example of that.
This custom kitchen vent hood features a rustic wood trim with a blue mosaic tile.
The kitchen cabinets are custom Rift Oak with a custom stain.
There’s no need for take-outs having a functional and spacious kitchen like this one. You have plenty storage, counter space and this kitchen also leads to an amazing pantry!
Countertops are Calacatta Eccellente – Honed, Ollin Stone.
Kitchen Faucet: Waterstone

This large kitchen features a very practical layout. The paneled refrigerator/freezer are located on the right, beside the wall oven.
An archway used to separate the kitchen from the dining area.
These “faux” plaster walls and the Travertine tiles were hard to look at. 🙂
The dining room was divided to create a larger outdoor area and it now features a pair of retractable patio doors.

This kitchen island features a custom dog feeding station that comes even with a swing arm faucet (pot filler) to easily refill the water bowls. This idea deserves a pin!!! 🙂
Pot Filler: here
This floating pet feeding station was perfectly designed for the dogs’ height.
Here’s what the designer had to say about the measurements: “We recommend basing clearance dimensions on the size of your dogs. Paying attention to their height when standing, eating, etc. Just like how we pay attention to how our clients live in their space, watch out for how your dogs do!
Also, we have learned from some pet sources that a food/water bowl raised too high is not best or natural for a dog’s digestion. Could be something to consult with your vet for the best height!
Tip: Allow some space for dripping if possible. We inset the bowl shelf in the nook so that the tile underneath could catch some of the mess from the dogs and limit its reach to the wood floor. They’re still dogs so we can’t expect them to wipe their mouths, but we can try to design it best for them (and in return, the homeowners!)”
Customizing a pet food station in your kitchen island isn’t only a brilliant idea but it also very functional. It’s easy to keep the dogs’ food station fresh and cleaner with a pot filler and by being so close to a sink and the dishwasher.
Marble is Honed Calacatta Eccellente. Say it with an Italian accent. 🙂
The space had good bones but everything felt too heavy and outdated with the faux plaster walls and these ugly draperies… sorry. 🙂
Oh, much, much better, right?! It seems that you can even breathe better in this room now!
