Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Sometimes it can be quite hard to adjust to any type of change life brings and we might see ourselves with certain decisions to make, especially after we have raised our children and find ourselves to be the new empty-nesters on the block. But as we also know, time allows us to adjust to these new changes and many times make things better than they used to be. For these empty-nesters, change came as a reason to find the right home and completely renovate it just the way they have dreamed, and for that, they counted on a very talented team of professionals; Stephanie Frees from Plain & Posh for the custom cabinetry (previously featured here & here) and Lisa Sullivan of Tate Enterprises for all of the construction work.

Here, Stephanie Frees shares some insights on this incredible renovation project:

“I had worked with the homeowners on their former home and they reached back out to have me help them on this new one. Although empty-nesters, they actually wanted a larger home to be able to entertain their expanding family and look forward to the years when the home will be full of grandchildren. The kitchen was very large, but an extremely unusual shape. We reconfigured an odd angled wall , that made the main working area a nice “L” with the first island. Then, the second island was created for baking and keeping the guest out of the main working area when there are large crowds.”

I hope this renovation inspires you, and make sure to take notes on the details shared by the designers!
