Terin and Bryan met while working together nearly 20 years ago, and they’ve spent the time since moving around the country and building their businesses—he’s a partner at a consulting firm and she owns a fitness travel company. They’re finally ready to settle down, find their dream home, and they want no detail spared in the process! The couple knew exactly what they were looking for: a modern, French country-inspired home with hardwood floors, a large, white kitchen, clean lines, and indoor-outdoor space for entertaining. We found the couple an airy, spacious home that we made more airy by knocking down walls, updating the windows and fireplaces, and removing excessive amounts of built-ins and wood cabinetry to give Terin and Bryan the chic-yet-cozy home of their dreams.

Before & After
THE ISLAND OF ALL ISLANDS
The home’s original kitchen was ripped straight out of the ’90s—dark cabinets, odd angles, lots of dark brown, and soffits in the ceiling. We took that all out in favor of white cabinets, clean lines, and a massive island in the middle, creating a timeless, classic look. “You could have a dance party on this island!” exclaimed Tarin when she saw it (and yes, Jonathan did install two ice makers in the island, as requested). Meanwhile, Bryan, like Drew, is not a fan of clutter, so it was important to include enough storage to keep the counters clear.
A RANGE OF SOPHISTICATION
This glorious, 60-inch range and expansive hood elevate this kitchen into a chef’s paradise—perfect for a couple who loves to cook. The patterned backsplash brings in an element of the French country vibe Terin was looking for while keeping things modern. Additionally, the arched area over the stove rounds out the space and gives the room a warm and cozy feel. And note the shelves on the side of the range—more storage means fewer things left out in the open.
An elegant California room for indoor-outdoor entertaining was on the very top of Bryan and Terin’s must-have list. Our original plan for this area had to be adjusted due to some structural issues we uncovered during the renovation, but we couldn’t be happier with the result. The covered area provides protection from the sun and addition of an outdoor fireplace makes this truly a room that can be used year-round. And see those glass doors? They collapse all the way into the wall, creating a completely open flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces.
