California Kitchen

The kitchen in Drew and Linda’s Honeymoon House was barely there—tucked away in a corner of the house, nowhere close to the dining room. We had to do a total redesign of the floor plan, using an old outdoor space as our footprint for a new, light-filled kitchen and dining space that would inspire both delicious meals and great conversation.

Before & After


Beyond the kitchen basics we needed—and this house needed just about everything—we wanted the kitchen to continue the Old Hollywood, Art Deco glam we brought to the entry spaces. We focused on a custom hood vent, placing metallics against a dark backdrop, and then continued that look through the countertops, island, doors and all the way to the conservatory window. The result: a full functional kitchen that magically feels both dramatic and light.


The new dining room had plenty of space for a long table and high-backed chairs, but we needed to create a transition between the dining space and the rest of the home. These custom built-ins do just the trick, providing us with an opportunity to tie styles together without feeling cluttered or out of place.


As the kitchen buildout progressed, Drew decided he didn’t just want go out—he wanted to go down, with a full basement including a wine cellar. Basement buildouts are unusual in this part of California because of earthquake concerns, but once we got the all-clear from the geologists, we were able to give Drew and Linda the wine cellar and storage space they were looking for.
