Harrison After years of living in Brooklyn, this couple relocated to a suburban home. As daily cooks, they missed the highly efficient layout and modern appointments of their former apartment, however, the owners desired to live and entertain in an open concept layout. The existing supporting wall between the living room and kitchen was removed to open up the space and interior finishes were chosen to provide a warm and contemporary feel.

Pelham An otherwise unused nook gets put to use thanks to some clever ingenuity. This space was carved out between a family room and powder room and added a little whimsy for entertaining for the homeowner. The bar includes a kegerator, plenty of storage for bottles, and a carved circular family crest.

Chappaqua A former mudroom was transformed into a multifunctional space including a laundry room, office, pantry, and beverage center that keeps the space organized and the clutter off the counters and out of the kitchen. There is an integrated veneer-paneled closet and wine fridge, cabinetry, and shelving above the laundry area, plus an undermount sink.
