Holly and Magda are both avid cooks, but the outdated kitchen in their 1909 foursquare house in NE Portland just wasn't cutting it. When they decided to renovate, they knew they didn't want a "conventionally attractive" (read: all white) kitchen, but rather something befitting their love of mid-century modern design and richly colored wood.
With the help of Michael Howells of Howells Architecture + Design, their newly redesigned kitchen is absolutely stunning — rich, warm, and a vast improvement over what was there before. See what this kitchen looks like now:
Beautiful and unexpected! The wood and dark chocolate tiles (placed vertically!) make the space feel cozy and luxurious. Here's what Howells Architecture + Design tells us about the renovation:
Gorgeous job. (And clearly Holly and Magda love it, too!)
Thanks so much for sharing, Amanda!
