We went through 80% of the house sprucing it up. All the old light fixtures were from the 70’s and 80’s. Before, as you came through the front door, you did not know where the house started and stopped. The couple liked to entertain, so we opened the kitchen up to the dining room and living room. Opening the kitchen to other surrounding spaces is something we do a whole lot of and will continue to do. Some call this layout California lifestyle. It continues to be our bread and butter. The house sits in Sanders Ranch development on the edge of Moraga, and borders a big ranch, with hardly any other structures in the view.
The owner did a lot of work on this project themselves. Cathy put together cabinets and shopped for quality materials. This is the first time we used Ikea cabinets; as you can see the wood fits together well and looks fantastic.
I like the chandelier and the way the light looks over the kitchen table. Those fixtures are from West Elm.
