This new construction home was designed for a young family with five children. The clients are builders and have previously undergone many renovations in houses they have inhabited over the years. However, they longed to build their dream home. We tried many renditions of floor plans and landed on a floating banquette–designing this more architecturally, which allowed us to incorporate family dining most efficiently.

We added some glamor to the space that was subtle enough from every vantage point– metal banded accents on some of the cabinets– used sparingly to create moments. "In our kitchens, we find it important to create moments. Creating the large range hood in a pretty Cerused Grey Oak softens the space while maintaining a focal point for that end of the room," says Laura O'Brien.
