Today I'm sharing the complete remodel of a condo I worked on in Westwood, Los Angeles. I remember first walking through the space with my client. The current tenants had not moved out and it was in escrow. The walls were dark and everything in the home felt like the year 1980 had a bad hair day. I also remember feeling like the space would be a design challenge when I walked through. We had to create space and functionality everywhere we could. We worked together as a great team and transformed the space into something beautiful, bright, eclectic and modern. I hope you enjoy the before & afters!
The new and updated wood flooring is a European Oak in a beautiful 7.5" wide plank - to die for. We opened up the entire kitchen entry to feel wide and spacious. We also removed a wall where the peninsula/bar area now resides. Also, what would a kitchen bar be without a built-in wine fridge? Where style and function become besties.
Since this condo had limited space, we wanted to make it as functional as possible. I had my cabinet maker fabricate a beautiful and huge wall unit for the living room - we chose classic shaker cabinets and added 8" tongue and groove planks behind the television area for added style.
Prior to the remodel, there was a wall diving the kitchen and a HUGE fridge shoved in the corner where the peninsula now exists. I love seeing this photo and how transformative the kitchen remodel made the entire space feel open and bright.
We did custom cabinetry throughout, down to the inch. We needed to save space, so I chose a dishwasher drawer and added as many cabs as possible on the bottom. I decided to pitch open shelving uppers to keep the kitchen feeling spacious.
One of my favorite makeovers of the home. My client fell in love with this tile and it's really a showstopper. This bathroom is a clean and modern oasis of cool.
Lastly, meet Ollie. He likes to superman dive into this beautiful rug and slide across the floor like a lightning bolt. Ollie is really happy with the modifications of the transition into the bedrooms and bathroom. If you can imagine, the back wall was a bathroom vanity IN THE HALLWAY. To the left of Ollie was a floor-to-ceiling built-in that cramped the entire space. It felt small and closed off. The hallway feels so bright and spacious now - its all so lovely.
