2009_01_23-Encino.jpgHere’s a little end of the week kitchen love for you. This dramatic kitchen transformation was sent to us by Joshua Rose, Rafael Kalichstein, and their Los Angeles design firm, FORM. We’ve seen FORM’s work before, and we’re impressed at every kitchen transformation from the group. We love watching old, tired kitchens transformed into fresh places to cook, eat, and nourish.

Take a look at this Encino kitchen — there are more photos below, including shots of the kitchen before its transformation!

Josh and Rafael say that the clients wanted a more modern Palm Springs vibe that would still honor their traditional home and ethnic influences. So the designers tore down several walls and created an open floor plan for all of the common living spaces.

We love how the kitchen is now open to the rest of the house; it makes everything feel lighter and more inviting.
