Leschi traditional-kitchen


This house had been deteriorating and in use as a rental until 2005 when a series of renovations were begun to erase years of neglect. An awkward daylight basement was gutted down to bare earth to create a guest suite, extra kitchen, storage, laundry, and media room. The walls of the main floor were re-plastered to eliminate a heavy stucco texture. The kitchen and powder room were gutted. And a breakfast room was re-imagined as a small TV room and lounge off the kitchen. One of the four bedrooms on the top floor was converted to a home office while the smallest of the bedrooms was converted to a walk-in-closet.

The countertops, marble? If so, are they hard to keep up in a kitchen?

The countertops are Carrara marble. They are very easy to maintain but they do stain and show citrus marks. These fade and are not an issue for the owner. If you want your countertops to look the same after 5 years as on day one they probably aren't the material for you.

I'd love to know the wall paint and cabinet paint color too. I'm doing white cabs and grey walls and am stuck!

Westies are so fun. Ours looked like a puppy when she was 16 years old! The full name of the breed is West Highland White Terrier. They're lively and noisy, but cute as heck.

Could be Moonshine by Benjamin Moore. We used this in our living room and love it. Color changes throughout the day depending on the light.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Industrial touches sprinkled throughout a calm color palette give this kitchen a crisp feel. This combination would definitely inspire me to cook more often!
OK, Fluffy is the ultimate in styling! Another pet peeve I have about kitchens is when everything is clean except for some lame dishtowel that doesn't match at all hanging from a stove, refrigerator door or faucet. The folded towel here is white and neat and keeps the kitchen from looking too staged. As for the composition, I love the way the ceiling lights are centered and lead the eye down the kitchen. The perspective is enhanced by those light fixtures.
Lily Gahagan added this to Houzz Pets: 50 Design-Loving Dogs
Someone's on high alert in this kitchen.
Alison Hodgson added this to So You're Thinking About Getting a Dog
1. Do you have room in your budget? "There's no such thing as a free lunch." That economist's adage extends to canines: There's no such thing as a free dog. Trust me. This may sound cold, but it's quite caring to first assess whether you have the expendable income that dog ownership requires. The cost of food, routine vet bills and basic gear adds up quickly, and that doesn't even take into account medical emergencies, fences, training, possible boarding and dental care. Dental care? Yes, and it's quite expensive, since sedation is involved. I don't even want to tell you about anal glands, but you should know they exist and, depending on the dog, require regular attention.
Laura Gaskill added this to The Case for Waiting to Remodel
Waiting to remodel can give you better ideas. It may not occur to you at first that removing a small closet or repositioning a door could make a huge difference in the working space of your kitchen ... until you've lived there for a while, that is. Pay special attention to the traffic patterns (where you walk) in your home, as this can offer you a clue about which doors or walls to consider moving or removing.
