#BrentwoodBoho :: Before + After ::

Designer: Mitzi Maynard

What was the client's end goal for their renovation, and what areas were you responsible for the design?

I  worked with this client in her previous home, and she was looking for a home that was better suited for she and her hubby, four boys, and a new puppy. It was great to be a part of their home search process as well! They found this home, loved the location (walking distance to the boys school), and it had the right layout for their family. However, it was outdated and the kitchen had a really disappointing lay out.

For me, this is where the fun begins! I was responsible for the kitchen, living room, dining room and all bathrooms. After a complete redesign of the kitchen, we were able to see the house come together. We started with great furnishings from the previous house, which helped keep the majority of our budget spent on renovations…including all bathrooms, lots of paint, new carpet, and many new lights.

Did you face any challenges in this renovation?
The most challenging but fun part was reconfiguring the kitchen.  We knocked down walls and columns, which allowed us to increase the cabinetry (by A LOT). One way we increased storage was by replacing the butler’s pantry with a floor to ceiling pull out pantry.   We also moved the location of the kitchen table so we could add a built in window bench beside the table to be used as a study space for the kids.

We love the colors in this home. What made you choose navy for the kitchen cabinets?

I have worked with this client for over five years, and this has consistently been one of her favorite colors, so it seemed like a no brainer to include it in the kitchen plans. 

What were you most excited about for this project?

In addition to redesigning the kitchen, one of my favorite parts about this project was getting to take the items we had selected for her previous home, and finding the perfect spot for them in the new home.
