Minnetonka Remodel contemporary-kitchen

Minnetonka Remodel

Our clients love their home’s location, a tranquil Minnetonka neighborhood near the highest point in Hennepin County. Built in 1973, the exterior has a contemporary aesthetic, but prior to the remodel the interior layout was more traditional, with each room separated from the next. TreHus opened up the floorplan by connecting the kitchen to the dining room, and infused the home with warm materials like lyptus wood cabinets and Brazilian walnut floors. The new layout allows natural light to penetrate deep into the interior of the home, giving it a peaceful, airy aesthetic. Photos by Brit Amundson.

They're 'Alina' pendants by Tech Lighting: http://www.lumens.com/alina-pendant-by-tech-lighting/uu379463/product

They are really pricey as far as pendants go, but in the right context they are worth it! In this kitchen we felt we needed something to offset all the wood and tie into the white Caesarstone tops and marble backsplash.
