Kitchen View

An open plan within a traditional framework was the Owner’s goal - for ease of entertaining, for working at home, or for just hanging out as a family. We pushed out to the side, eliminating a useless appendage, to expand the dining room and to create a new family room. Large openings connect rooms as well as the garden, while allowing spacial definition. Additional renovations included updating the kitchen and master bath, as well as creating a formal office paneled in stained cherry wood.

The bench is about 19 inches deep and is fairly consistent relative to the custom oval table.

Never mind. I see it from the dining room pic and figured out the layout using the picture from the backyard. That being said, if it were not part of a main traffic area, how much width would you allocate at minimum?

The table top was custom made and the bases were ordered online from tablebases.com - lots of great options.

If Restoration Hardware no longer carries it, try Hudson Valley Lighting. They manufacture a lot in this style.

Also try Rejuvenation. This looks very much like their schoolhouse pendant with an optional shade. http://www.rejuvenation.com/fixshowC750/templates/selection.phtml?n=v&custom_code=19rc3&&custom_code=19rc3&newC750[15SHADE]=356CE

I think there are certain kinds of paints that yellow less than others, but once they are yellow, your option is probably only to repaint them.

We use Benjamin Moore Paint. The whites hold up well. The cabinets have a factory finish and will also be color true for a good while (not counting dirty fingers).

Whatkind of design professional would I need to build this windowseat? - I have an existing bay window that needs to be changed, but I also want to build a seat with a high back like this. I have been to design build firms but I am not confident they had the know how. I am in NJ (not in MD, unfortunately). Should I be going to an architect instead?
