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.

It's a stained concrete overlay. The house has a concrete foundation, but had wood floor glued to it prior to this remodel, so an overlay is a thin concrete application over existing concrete.

It is a thin concrete overlay, installed on site by a local concrete finishing company. Jennifer Ott, with Jennifer Ott Design was the client, and she would be a good person to talk to, if you are looking for an interior designer for your project.

Where did you get the shelves and how are they mounted on the wall?

The shelves were fabricated on site by the trim carpenters. It's pecan wood surrounding heavy-duty brackets that are mounted to the studs.

It's a George Kovacs light that has since been discontinued (though last I checked the larger, 3-bulb size is still available).

Light In Art
We make Contemporary Stained Glass Lighting and Art. Our collections are mostly pendants; The Tupil (Large) or the Rachel would look beautiful over the sink. Visit our website at http://www.lightinart.com/ to see some options.

How did you get the aqua wood cabinet so shiny and plastic-like? - I am wanting to try to duplicate the look. Please help!!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

they were painted with a paint sprayer using semi-gloss paint. if you want a super glossy finish you can use high gloss paint, but the only way to get a smooth and plastic-like finish is to use a paint sprayer. brushes and rollers just can't give you that perfectly smooth finish. good luck!

The glass cabinets are from Ikea, though I think that door style has since been discontinued. They have another version available now.

the floor is a concrete/resin overlay, only 1/8" thick (it was self-leveling). The natural color was a bit lighter gray than what it is now. They stained it using acetone, I believe, just to darken it up and give it a more mottled appearance. Then it was sealed with a matte sealer.

zbil, the island is clad in paint-grade wood (sorry, don't remember what species. MDF would work fine here, too).

Docho Martha, glad you like the color!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Kitchen of the Week: Aqua Knockout in Austin
Ott put extra-large drawers in the base cabinets, rather than fixed shelves, making it easier for her to reach kitchen items. Often-used bowls, glasses and plates were put on the open pecan shelving, to prevent constant dusting. Ott also used the home's existing plumbing to keep costs down. This limited the kitchen's layout, but they had plenty of space to work with. "Nobody has an unlimited budget, so it's good to figure out what your priorities are and put the money in the items that make the most sense for you, for how you'll use your kitchen," Ott says. "I don't bake, so I didn't need two separate wall ovens. It may be a popular must-have for a lot of people, but we just didn't need it." Sink: Silgranit Precis Super Single Undermount, Blanco; fixtures: Grohe; pendant over sink: George Kovacs, Lights FantasticContractor: Jason Williams, Shoal Creek ConstructionPhotography: Patrick Wong, Atelier Wong
Double up on tropical hues for a bold, zesty look. Fresh lime green or Caribbean blue would be striking on its own, but put the two together and you can instantly evoke the laid-back pace, swaying trees and crystal-clear waters of the tropics. Clean, cleared surfaces and modern stainless steel help steer this look into sleek rather than gimmicky territory.
Bowls, glasses and plates that are frequently used sit on open shelving. Extra-large drawers in the base cabinets make it easier to reach items and to use the entire space for storage. See more of this kitchen
Laura Gaskill added this to What Goes With Wood Cabinets?
Wild card: lime accent wall, aqua island. Pecan cabinets with lime walls peeking out from behind open shelving look fresh and light. Green paint colors can be tricky to get right, and how a particular hue looks in your space may be quite different than what is shown on a computer monitor. The best way to be sure about a color is to use a sample pot to paint a large board and prop it up in your kitchen before committing. An aqua island with a concrete-colored Caesarstone counter adds another splash of tropical color to this cheerful space. Light- to medium-tone wood cabinets will work best with the colors shown here; go a shade or two deeper with the wall color for dark wood cabinets.Accent wall paint: Parakeet, Sherwin-Williams

Could put sink and stove on same wall, and put a small sink in the island, leaving the majority of the island open for prep work. Likewise, could also put fridge on same wall as stove leaving the wall open for pantry cabinets.
