2021 Guide to Take Your Kitchen to the Next Level

Has your kitchen seen better days? Considering this room is one of the main focal points for any family home, an old, tired kitchen isn’t going to help raise the mood of you and your loved ones.  Transforming a kitchen with a renovation project is no easy task, admittedly. It’s one that many even try and put off due to the work and complexity involved. Yet, with the right amount of planning and a healthy budget, you can give your kitchen the overhaul it deserves.  Are you ready to ma...

Kitchen of the Week: Calamine Pinks in a Converted Barn Kitchen by Plain English

The owner of this Plain English kitchen until recently lived a stone’s throw away, in a farmhouse in rural Suffolk, England, that had been in her husband’s family for nearly a century. Newly widowed and with three children who would soon all be away at university, she decided to downsize without having to uproot: she’s in the process of selling her house to a young family, and has moved with her youngest daughter into new quarters converted from a series of interlocking barns and sheds. She hire...

Kitchen of the Week: A Living-Room Inspired Minimalist Kitchen in Stockholm

We are loving the anti-kitchen kitchen trend we’ve been noticing of late. Instead of installing monolith walls of built-in cabinets and big shiny appliances, some designers are choosing to treat the room more like a living or family room and selecting finishes and furniture-like units to match. Recently, Swedish kitchen company Nordiska Kök reached out to us about such an aytpical kitchen, a recently completed project in an elegant apartment in Stockholm’s Östermalm district. The clients, parent...

Kitchen of the Week: Going Big with Color in a Small Space

Not everyone wants a huge kitchen with fancy equipment and built-in everything. Take the owners of this Victorian home (currently for sale on The Modern House) in the Ferndale neighborhood of London. According to designer Adam Bray, who took them on as clients when they decided to renovate, character and efficiency were the priorities. Prior to the update, the kitchen “was perfectly nice, inherited from the previous owner,” says Adam. “But the clients wanted to make it their own.” To them, that ...

A Hollywood Director’s Refined Off-the-Grid Man Cabin by Commune Design

Where does Anthony Russo—who, co-directed with his brother four Marvel movies, including the highest-grossing movie of all time, Avengers: Endgame—go to decompress? Into the wilds of Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel Mountains, where his 1900s cabin awaits with the promise of off-the-grid solitude, Thanos-style. Russo’s stone-clad retreat was originally built as part of the U.S. Forest Services’ program to promote responsible land use. The sought-after director was captivated by the ide...

Before & After: A 2,500-Square-Foot Pre-War Brooklyn Apartment Opens Up by Relocating the Kitchen

Dubbed “Brooklyn’s Champs-Élysées” by the New York Times, Eastern Parkway in Prospect Heights is a grand thoroughfare that counts among its architectural gems Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Public Library, and the Brooklyn Museum—all within a half mile of each other. Nestled among these landmarks are elegant pre-war apartment buildings, like Turner Towers, Brooklyn’s first residential high-rise and where we discovered this impressive renovation by Frederick Tang Architecture. Like many pre-war a...

Kitchen of the Week: Life Imitates Art in a Swedish Painter’s New Kitchen

Swedish painter Emma Bernhard‘s kitchen is much like her art: minimalist, bold, honest, with a fondness for black. Known for her large-scale works featuring evocative black brush strokes, Emma collaborated with Nordiska Kök to design the space, choosing the firm’s streamlined Valchromat cabinets for a sleek look that offsets the natural warmth of the home’s pine plywood walls. The company notes another similarity between Emma’s kitchen, which is composed of three parts (a row of tall cabinets, a...

Kitchen of the Week: A Bright Addition with a “Pantry Portal” for a Narrow Townhouse in Brooklyn

The challenge: how to create a sense of light and space in a notably narrow late 19th-century townhouse? Located in Brooklyn’s Park Slope, the structure—with an interior width of 13.5 feet— was purchased by a young family of three who wanted to preserve the sequence of rooms. Equally importantly, they wanted a great-looking, central kitchen to replace the beat-up laminate design in the basement. They found architects Anshu Bangia and Willam Agostinho on Remodelista. Members of the Remodelista Ar...

Kitchen of the Week: ‘Wes Anderson Meets Provencal’ in West London

“Wes Anderson meets Provençal.” Designer Chris Graves (of Clarence & Graves) is describing his vision for his kitchen renovation. But what does that mean, exactly? For one thing, a memorable palette, in this case “a beautiful soft palette of pink, black and green”; for another, nostalgia for the past via quirky vintage and antique pieces. And then, there’s the more intangible element, a certain joie de vivre that all Wes Anderson sets seem to share: “I wanted it to feel joyous, convivial, bright...

Creative Compound: A Ceramic Artist Couple at Home and Work in the French Countryside

Ceramic artists Justine and Jean Hay de Slades’ rustic home and studio in France’s Haute Saintonge were years in the making. First, Justine had to establish her line of bone-white porcelain that she calls Epure—the exquisitely simple wares are what first caught our eye: see Made In a Barn in France. Success enabled Jean to join the business in 2014: he oversees production. And very recently, with their three-year-old daughter, Alma, the family bought a parcel of land with two decrepit 19th-centu...

Kitchen of the Week: A Locavore Chef and Landscape Architect’s Low-Impact Kitchen

For landscape architect Victoria Taylor and chef Jamie Kennedy, a pioneer in Canada’s farm-to-table movement, it was all about the location: “The creek running through the property, the bluff overlooking the village, and a perfect south-facing slope for growing pinot noir,” says Victoria, were what they loved about their farmhouse in Ontario’s Prince Edward County. It certainly wasn’t the 100-year-old structure itself, which, while charming, lacked both heat and running water (hello, outhouse!)....

Kitchen of the Week: A London Kitchen Inspired by Traditional Haberdashery Stores

Noticed of late: kitchens that look like furnished rooms as opposed to, well, kitchens. If you’re intrigued by the trend, you may want to consider deVOL’s Haberdasher’s Kitchen line of modular cabinets inspired, says the company, by traditional British men’s clothing stores and their “glass doors and sliding drawers, of row upon row of lift-up oak cubbyholes full of ribbons and buttons, patterns and fabrics and soft balls of wool.” Recently, deVOL reached out to us about their St. John’s Square ...

Kitchen of the Week: A Modern Space Thanks to a Traditional ‘Tsubo-Niwa’

Last week, we wrote about Fraher & Findlay‘s inspired update of a Georgian home. Today, we’re sharing their most recent project, a renovation of an old Victorian in Hackney, London, featuring a Japanese-inspired tsubo-niwa. Tsubo is a unit of measure equal to the area of two tatami mats (about 3.3 square meters); niwa means garden. As a compound word, it describes a small courtyard garden—and that’s precisely what was added to the property to connect a new rear addition to the original building....

Kitchen of the Week: A Minimalist Design by an Annabelle Selldorf Protégé

Lauren Wegel is an architect who loves succinctness. She began her career working for another New York minimalist, Annabelle Selldorf, which is how we met: see A Hardworking Brooklyn Kitchen By A Big Gun Architect. That was back in 2013, and, in recent years, Wegel has been running her own tiny firm. The thought and care she puts into projects have won her a number of clients who have become good friends and repeat customers. Such was the case with fashion stylist Barbara Abbatemaggio and creati...

Trend Alert: Sunny Yellow Kitchens, 10 Favorites

Here are 10 standouts ranging in style from urban contemporary to vintage beach cottage, all accented in invitingly warm and sunny—and decidedly not mellow—yellows.

Kitchen of the Week: A Brightly Colored (and Cost Conscious) London Kitchen

Like so many people, Alexandra Evans and her husband, Tom, had always been cautious about color: “We had to think about resale value, so we painted everything white,” she says. Then the couple bought a 1914 fixer upper in Richmond Park, in southwest London, for themselves and their three children, ages 4, 9, and 13. Feeling as if they had found their “forever home,” they decided it was time to welcome in the bright and the bold. Working with a trusted carpenter and crew, they embarked on the re...

Kitchen of the Week: An Expensive-Looking Remodel for Just $13,000

We often recommend Ikea’s kitchen cabinets as a solid, bang-for-the-buck option for those looking to remodel. And nowadays, there are so many offshoot companies offering cabinet front styles specifically tailored to fit Ikea’s base cabinets that, if being economical is a priority, there’s little reason not to at least start with an Ikea skeleton. (See Ikea Kitchen Upgrade: 11 Custom Cabinet Companies for the Ultimate Kitchen Hack.) Which is what we assumed this expensive-looking kitchen from arc...

Kitchen of the Week: A Sleek Modern Kitchen with a Hippie Heart

We are all trying to make more low-impact choices here at Remodelista, so it was with a particular thrill that we recently stumbled upon Sustainable Kitchens, a kitchen design and manufacturing company based in Bristol, England, that prioritizes ethical materials. Its core principles—a reliance on solid, responsibly-sourced wood and non-toxic materials; an emphasis on locally sourced products; and a commitment to reducing waste and replanting trees—grew out of founder Sam Shaw’s interest in sust...

Architects Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet knew just the thing to do when charged with turning a tiny, suffocating cabin into something befitting its glamorous French Riviera location: They took inspiration from nautical design, with its emphasis on clever built-ins and streamlined efficiency. Then, they ratcheted up the luxe factor. Check out the tidy and compact kitchen they designed—then learn how to get the look.

A London Designer’s Apartment Remodel for a Demanding Client (Her Mother)

After earning an architectural interior design degree from the prestigious Inchbald School and working for two design firms in London’s Chelsea, Lonika Chande felt ready to strike out on her own. What she needed was an initial solo project to show what she can do. That commission came from Lonika’s mother, Lucy Dickens, an artist (and great-great granddaughter of Charles Dickens), who dabbles in real estate: she and Lonika’s stepfather had bought a one-bedroom fixer-upper in Hampstead that they ...

Kitchen of the Week: ‘A Secret Retreat’ Above a Violin Store

Designers often say that the best renovations come about after you’ve actually clocked some time living in a space, so that you can have a better understanding of how your home supports (or hinders) your daily routine. Architect Jack Tsai’s clients, a couple in their 60s, had 15 years to figure out what was wrong with their living quarters. The couple own a violin shop and had been living atop of it in a dark, rundown apartment for a decade and a half before they brought in Jack to reimagine it—...

The Anti-Surburban Beach House: A New Build that Prioritizes Craft Over Style, Community over Privacy

It’s natural to be influenced by your travels and to pepper your home with interior souvenirs. For instance, after vacationing in the Southwest one year, I became enamored with desert style and promptly picked up a few potted succulents, a Cosanti wind bell, and a couple throw pillows in that peach-coral hue so popular in that region of the country. Few among us, though, can claim to return from a trip and build an entirely new house inspired by the local architecture spotted while on vacation. ...

Rehab Diary: Architect Ben Daly and Family at Home in a Converted Sheep Shed

“I like to get very hands-on with my projects because I believe as an architect we have to engage more,” says Ben Daly. “Currently, it’s just me that does 95 percent of absolutely everything.” By everything he’s referring to not only his design but construction work. Ben came to his profession as someone “interested in understanding how things work.” After earning his architecture degree at Auckland University in his native New Zealand, he worked for firms in London and Sydney designing communit...

An Architect’s Narrow Townhouse in Montreal, Design Studio Included

The ask was formidable: update the Victorian-era townhouse; restore some of the period details that had been removed in an ill-conceived 1980s renovation; bring more light into the building, which had just two exposures (at the front and back); carve out a functional, client-ready office space that would feel separate from the rest of the home. And P.S., the building has a footprint of just 10 by 50 feet. Fortunately, the architect, Michael Godmer, was more than up for the challenge. It was his ...

Kitchen of the Week: A Creative Couple’s Swedish Farmhouse Retreat

The farmhouse was an impulse purchase: Ellen Dixdotter, Jacob Holst, and their two young kids had recently moved from Stockholm to Copenhagen when, on a weekend getaway, they decided to take a look at real estate site Hemnet. “It’s not that we’re financially equipped for spontaneous house buying,” Ellen tells us, “but this old place, even in terrible shape, instantly felt like a friend.” The two also happen to love a creative project: Jacob is an interior architect at Sticks and Stones and Ellen...

Kitchen of the Week: ‘SMILF’ Creator Frankie Shaw’s Newfangled Old-Fashioned Remodel by Reath Design

So many renovations we see nowadays entail brightening up interiors and whiting out—quite literally—what was originally there. What we admire about interior designer Frances Merrill, of Reath Design in Los Angeles, is her unique, trend-bucking strategy: rather than open up spaces and painting everything white, she create cocoons of color, pattern, and moody warmth. This cozy eat-in kitchen she designed for actress and SMILF creator Frankie Shaw, and her TV writer husband, Zach Strauss, exemplifi...

Kitchen of the Week: A Scandi Blonde Wood Design in Bed-Stuy, Garden Included

Having a backyard in Brooklyn is a rarity in the best of times. The young family of three who bought this 1899 townhouse in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy a year ago knew they wanted to link indoors to out—but they could never have anticipated how grateful they’d be feeling right now for access to their own patch of greenery. The interior had been given an inexpensive once-over by a developer, but the new owners felt there was much room for improvement. They hired James Veal and Christine Stucker of husban...
