Our clients bought a fixer upper in a family neighborhood in Menlo Park. Set amongst established shady trees, the intention was to add several bedrooms, an office and re-space the home to accommodate their lifestyle with a transitional update.

With a light and neutral palette kept throughout the house in built- ins and surfaces, we were able to use some wonderful richly colored paint accents in shades of cool to warm grays and taupes.

We designed a large barn door as an option to divide the Family room space off from the rest of the open plan. The massive custom door is broken up with the transom lights at the top and hung on rustic hardware.

The bar area is fully serviced with a beverage center, wine refrigerator and ice maker as well as a small sink so anyone tending here does not need to walk across the kitchen through the "cooks" path. Above the bar we designed an open shelf system with concealed fixing to the ceiling using square tubing finished in oil rubbed bronze with glass shelves for bar accoutrement.

The second floor laundry room is kept light and bright with white painted shaker style cabinetry, here in a frameless cabinet style, for a more budget friendly approach. White subway tile is installed on the backsplash in a more standard 3"x 6" module.
