Historic Netflix Kitchen Remodel

A Dream Home Makeover Project

07 January 2021 -

Today we’re excited to share more details and tips from one of our recent kitchen remodels

Featured in Season 2 of our Netflix series “Dream Home Makeover,” this project is filled with timeless touches, charm, and personality. 

Our clients brought us in to help them update and brighten their kitchen space while maintaining their historic home’s character, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. 



Here are a few design tips we incorporated while working on this project: 

We’d like to thank our partners at CaesarstoneKillowen ConstructionHallmark Floors, Benjamin Moore, Kohler Co., Lemco DesignMonogramRock Solid GraniteTargetAnn Sacks, and Rejuvenation for helping us make this project possible.

Design Tip No. 1: Don’t be afraid to incorporate pattern

Patterned details and finishes are a great way to add dimension and personality to any space, and the right pattern placement can feel both bold and classic.

In this space, we used patterns to bring back an element that felt true to the home’s historic character through a floral wallpaper behind the office nook and a statement-making checkered floor.

There are countless ways to incorporate patterns in your own home, whether it’s through your tile, wallpaper in a powder room, or even throw pillows.

Design Tip No. 2: Let the original elements you love shine

One of the most important design lessons we’ve learned over the years is that remodeling is not always about re-doing every element in the space. Although our clients wanted to brighten their kitchen space, they had these great original wooden elements that we knew we wanted to incorporate in our design.

Updating the finishes surrounding their beautiful windows helped them shine, adding more dimension to the look. We brought out the windows’ wooden tone with similar hues on the barstools and kitchen island, making them stand out even more.

Design Tip No. 3: Balance warm and cool tones among your finishes

Although we brightened many elements in this space, we needed to bring some warmth back to balance the look. Incorporating brass finishes, natural wood pieces, and a textured backsplash with warm tonal accents tied everything together to complete the look.
