Although technically empty nesters, this couple routinely has a full house. With their children and grandkids residing one street over- and a pack of close pals and other family members rolling in often- the active Georgians were dreaming of a new kitchen design for the elegant French-style maison. While decadent in character and charm, the 1960's home had a choppy layout that cut off the kitchen area from the living quarters- characteristic of the era but not what the light, relaxed homeowners wanted. By opening 2 walls and closing off another, Splash achieved square footage for a breakfast nook, built-in desk, and china hutch. Splash knitted traditional elements with more easy-going ones like rustic wood cabinets. It has the best of both worlds in one beautiful redo!
