Dandelion House contemporary kitchen

Dandelion House

Remodel of a two-story residence in the heart of South Austin. The entire first floor was opened up and the kitchen enlarged and upgraded to meet the demands of the homeowners who love to cook and entertain. The upstairs master bathroom was also completely renovated and features a large, luxurious walk-in shower.

The carcasses are from Ikea, the fronts were custom fabricated on site out of pecan wood.

yes, the "white" paint on both the ceiling and walls is Eider White from Sherwin-Williams. the ceiling is flat finish and the walls are eggshell.

you are not being thick, the fridge didn't really make it into any of the photos, basically it's behind and to the right of where the photographer was standing when he took this pic. If you go to this view you can see it at the very end of the kitchen, on the left side:

Not an ideal location, but we didn't want to have to pay to reconfigure the plumbing. We worked with the existing locations of the sink and fridge. Maybe we've just gotten used to it, but it actually functions really well for us. And we cook elaborate meals almost every night of the week, so we've put it through its paces!

Sorry, I don't know the manufacturer of the self-leveling overlay product for the floor, it was installed by a local Austin company, ModernCrete (moderncrete.com). Perhaps try giving them a call and see if they can help you out.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Kitchen of the Week: Aqua Knockout in Austin
After the walls between the original kitchen and dining rooms were knocked down, architect Christy Seals of Loop Design had to integrate a large beam to support the load of the second story, which was quite a challenge. Since the beam is a foot thick, it meant they had to lower the ceiling height in this area. However, Ott loves the varying ceiling heights — they allow for a subtle openness in the kitchen and intimacy in the dining area. Ott chose the colors based on housewares she'd fallen in love with. Her strategy was to use neutral colors for materials that are expensive or difficult to change — like the quartz countertop and concrete floor — and use bold colors for materials that are cheap and easy to change out — like paint and accessories.Flooring: concrete overlay; wall paint: Parakeet, Sherwin Williams; island paint: Larchmere, Sherwin Williams; bar stools: Ikea

$199 I like this industrial chandelier for its modern twist that allows you to suspend five glass globes from one black iron bar. Go for a fomal look by hanging globes at the same level or mix things up by hanging them at different heights.
