THE PONTO HOUSE
we're excited to show you the before and after photos of our most recently completed ponto project. This abode by the beach needed a serious upgrade from its former 90's self. Since this project is a second home for our clients, we wanted to give it a makeover, but we needed to be smart about helping manage their design budget, too.
I wanted the kitchen to have personality even though the back cabinets were remaining in place. My solution was to go bold, but remain classic. I found a beautiful dark green (dunn edwards black pool) that looks astonishing and different in the morning, afternoon and evening. I carried a simple subway tile with beveled edging up to the ceiling to give the space a more finished look.
The existing cabinets had no hardware, only brass hinges and finger pulls. We added these rejuvenation knobs and pulls to tie in with the classic look we wanted to achieve. we love the way it turned out. Simple and classic.
Adding a few special details always give a remodel a unique look. I had our cabinet maker add tongue and groove detail to the side of the new island to give it a modern beach vibe. so long to "BEACH THIS WAY ----->" signs, i hope i never see you again ;)
we ripped that bad boy to pieces and saved its soul by surrounding the fireplace with quartz, added a faux mantle and some new light fixtures. voila.
I took the subway tiles to the ceiling, an inexpensive way to enhance the overall look to an otherwise boring scenario. We had a new custom cabinet made and used cost friendly retro floors to tie it all together.
