Home on The Ranch: The Great Room & Kitchen

A Dream Home Makeover Project

26 January 2021 -

If you’ve watched season two of our Netflix show

“Dream Home Makeover,” you may remember one of our largest new-build projects yet, The Home on The Ranch.

So far, we’ve shared more details about the entry, library & mudroom, and we’re excited to continue our virtual tour today with the great room and kitchen!

This large, light-filled open-concept space includes a kitchen with double islands, two separate lounge spaces, and a dining area for entertaining friends and family for years to come.

Watch our webisode below, and keep scrolling to see the photo tour and details behind the process.

We were lucky to work with the team at Hebon Studios on the architecture and Everlast Custom Homes on the build, and they really helped not only bring the vision to fruition, but take it to the next level!

The Living Space

When designing a large open-concept space like this one, it’s important to be intentional about dividing up the different areas.

Because the living space was so large, we decided to divide it into two parts – one traditional living space centered around the TV, and one designed as more of a conversation area with four chairs surrounding a coffee table.

In the primary living area, we did a large custom sectional, a leather ottoman, and a pretty swivel chair perfect for swinging around to get a good view of the big game.

To bring in some contrast, we went with a darker, inky blue upholstery on the Timmins Arm Chair from McGee & Co., a neutral jute rug, and a textured, woven coffee table.

The Kitchen + Pantry

Complete with hand-formed tiles on the backsplash, a contrasting stain on the double islands, and a beautiful open-shelving detail, this kitchen carries through the seating areas’ dimension.

"We made sure to add a lot of textile layers in this space to make it feel cozy even though the pieces were oversized."

In the pantry, we started with beautiful whitewashed painted brick herringbone floors for character and added a free-standing butcher-block island, a rolling ladder, and continued cabinetry and backsplash details from the kitchen.

The Dining Area

It was important to our clients to fit each member of their large family in their dining table space with room to add more guests and grow. We knew we needed a bigger table than we could find, so we ended up designing a custom piece that’s about 17 feet long.

We contrasted the lighting in the kitchen with a large ring chandelier to center the table, and woven chairs all the way around to add some texture. Because we had so many chairs, we wanted to break it up a bit and add benches on the end of the table, allowing for even more dinner guests.
