Remodeling an older home can be a challenge. In this featured project, Lauren Brown, interior designer for Twin Construction, chose to remodel a 99-year old cottage in Crestwood North. Once Lauren had made the necessary structural repairs, she “began to layer the newly open floor plan with a calming color palette accented by playful, eclectic elements.”
In the kitchen, Lauren chose to create a dramatic contrast by layering Alabama White Marble Countertops over dark blue-grey cabinets. She installed a white herringbone tile backsplash that goes all the way to the ceiling, creating an elegant backdrop for the natural wood shelving and a custom built range hood. Copper accents and lighting fixtures add flair to the high contrast design, while a natural wood island topped with Alabama White Marble pulls the look together and keeps the room feeling light and bright.
