Brady Bunch Go Craftsman
This kitchen, much like the one found in the1960's TV home belonging to the Brady Bunch, is dominated by a large brick wall (complete with wall oven). Our client's overriding kitchen-dining remodel goals included retaining the brick wall, adding more storage, and introducing Craftsman aesthetics. Adjoining rooms and budget precluded expanding the footprint of this north-facing room and simply remodeling in the Craftsman style would have made the kitchen feel like an isolated update from the remainder of the 1960's home.
Our remodel solutions began with an open plan, sticking cabinet panels (traditional to the Craftsman aesthetic), and accents of Douglas Fir (traditional Craftsman material). Decorative details from our client's Stickley furniture are introduced into the dining room hutch where more formality is welcome. We updated the Craftsman aesthetic with cream enamel, linear glass tile, and chrome hardware. Even Alice would have felt at home.
