Spanish + Mid-century ModernTransitional Kitchen, San Francisco
A remodeled retro kitchen mixed with a few original architectural elements of this Spanish home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
AFTER: The wall between the kitchen and the breakfast nook was removed, making both spaces brighter.The designer left the original ventilation fan (located at the top of the corner cabinet), because it looked cool. The owners added their own hip note with uppermost cabinets made with glass fronts and small clips that hold the kids’ artwork like frames. “They change it out often,” says the designer.The countertop is aqua-colored lava stone. “Not only is aqua blue a very midcentury color; it’s a happy color,” says Copass. “The goal was to make this a happy, family-friendly place.”With that in mind, the designer chose cabinet knobs crafted with another midcentury hallmark: a starburst. The Roman shade was made with another fabric the designer created. “I first made this pattern for Disneyland,” Copass says. “If you go and visit Red Rocket’s Pizza Port, you’ll see it there. I had it done in different colors for this family.”The new banquette is covered with a vintage fabric the clients found. “It has a neighborhood theme, with children, houses and fire trucks,” the designer says. It’s complemented with a bright red 1950s metal chair — a remade flea market find.Hardware: Saturn + Star, Rejuvenation
