Client Need

The homeowners of this lovely Orinda home aimed to enhance their living space with a rustic Tahoe/woodsy atmosphere, expanding its footprint and fostering a more spacious, interconnected environment. This involved a 1,328 SF addition to the back of the home, remodeling the kitchen, dining room, and family room, adding a new deck, and creating a new office/guest room with an ensuite bathroom on the main level. Downstairs, two new bedrooms, a bathroom, a laundry room, and bonus room were included in the project.

The kitchen was crafted with a stunning tray ceiling adorned with elegant wood paneling above an expansive island. Our innovative design features new frameless Swiss Coffee upper and lower cabinets, harmonized with Pewter Green island cabinets. Enhancing the aesthetic are striking black, honed Zimbabwe countertops, complemented by a gorgeous desert green leathered slab for the island’s raised bar area. For appliances, our clients opted for a state-of-the-art SubZero refrigerator and freezer and wine refrigerator, paired with a Thermador cooktop and matching hood, as well as a Bosch microwave drawer and dishwasher.

In the adjoining family room, we incorporated a fully customized wet bar, featuring the same Pewter Green cabinets found on the island. The bar is adorned with the same Desert Green leathered slab countertops, boasting a sleek waterfall edge. To further enhance the room’s ambiance, we added a new Kozy Heat Bellingham vent fireplace insert, framed by a stunning 6×24 ledgestone fireplace surround.

The entire room, seamlessly integrating the kitchen, dining area, and family room, showcases stunning engineered prefinished Sylvania White Oak Fayette hardwood flooring, elegantly finished with matching baseboards.


The remodeling project skillfully fulfills the homeowners’ penchant for entertaining, crafting an open concept ideal for vibrant family gatherings and tranquil fireplace moments. Moreover, their daughters enjoy a dedicated downstairs area for socializing with friends.
