The owner of Patio Cafe wanted to give a refresh to their restaurant for their 20th anniversary. They wanted a touch of farmhouse while still keeping a more eclectic feel. The patrons were extremely disappointed when they heard the beloved original mural was going to be painted over so we came up with the idea of 'shiplapping' over part of the mural while giving snapshots of the focal points. We replaced the mismatched fans with two large windmill fans. Commercial dimmable bistro lights were strung around the ceiling for an outdoorsy feel. Bar and pub seating was added for a more private space to eat and all of the table tops were updated. To finish off the "patio" feel we added in live plants from Foliage Clovis and a "flower bed" along the mural wall.
From an uninspiring run-of-the-mill track home to being featured on the front page of Pinterest, this Mediterranean kitchen has seen it all. We started with opening up the dark kitchen to the family room and added in an 8 foot bi-fold window to maximize natural light. Antique beams were hand selected from an 1800s barn in Indiana. Custom cabinets, finishes, and lighting were key in making this project come to life. My client had at one time dreaded cooking for her family. She now can not wait to get home from vacation so she can be in her kitchen. I would call that a win!
A ten foot long bar made for the perfect snack or homework spot.
Finished with decor from Periwinkle Home Decor.
What kitchen doesn't need a ten foot tall china cabinet?
Oversized lighting in the dining nook balanced out the room perfectly.
An 8 foot long bi-fold window was a must for maximum natural light and when open makes the kitchen a part of their entertaining spot on their patio.
Brass fixtures brought a touch of glam that my client requested.

The original kitchen was an uninspired design which had been well loved as the original model home. A remodel was needed for this kitchen to help it reach it's full potential.
