We have a soft spot in our hearts for people who remodel their home around their kitchen. That's what Allison and Paul did two years ago. Rather like the Eagle Rock renovation we featured earlier this week, this kitchen is at the heart of the house, and open to light and gorgeous views.Allison and Paul say that they love to cook and entertain, so they opened up the kitchen and dining room into one big space where friends can hang out. We love all the natural light and the bright feel, as well as that enormous island chock-full of storage! That island belongs in our dream kitchen! The vintage stove is grand as well.
