Above: The breakfast nook was previously all built-ins, but the designer reimagined this space by adding in a bench with a custom cushion. With a vaulted ceiling above, she had to be mindful of adding light without disrupting the ceiling design. An oversized swing arm light fixture can be adjusted, acting as a sconce when it is pushed in. The built-in shelving offers a way for the owners to personalize their space, and celebrate the changing of the seasons.

transitional kitchen with a large island

Above: The kitchen was one of the largest renovations in the home. The designer added a second set of porch doors to enhance the natural light. She also removed the previous soffit to increase the ceiling height. The island was enlarged and a concealed coffee cabinet and pantry were integrated into the design to expand the kitchen, creating an open and welcoming atmosphere while maximizing functionality. Over the island, a linear light was added to lend the appearance of multiple fixtures.

Could you please tell me what flooring is in the first bathroom with brown grain vanity with rectangular tiles. Is this marble? Also would like to know what flooring the antique terracotta hexagon stone is?
