The Garrison Colonial in JP had been purchased by Nisha and Ian after a flip. Being avid cooks, they wanted a kitchen which could accommodate an active family and tons of entertaining for large groups. We redesigned the layout to create a 9’ butcher block live edge walnut island which became the locus of the home. The storage was designed to Nisha’s list of equipment, cookbooks and crockery. The clients were very excited about using natural materials like Soapstone, Wood and Marble which gave us a great jumping off point for the color palette. The backyard was a lush mature garden that Nisha had spent a ton of time working on and perfecting. We wanted to make sure that it was clearly visible by adding a set of sliding windows to the back. This window also enabled them to pass food to the sitting area and Jacuzzi on the patio in the rear. The artwork and accents are reflective of their own creativity and reminiscent of their Southern heritage.
