Kitchen Nook Makeover

It was time for a new start for this kitchen nook in a 1933 Spanish style duplex in Los Angeles.

Starry Street- expanded street view day-001

With an Eero Saarinen-style tulip table table and chairs as the starting point, Arch Interiors Design Group of Beverly Hills conceived a fresh retro look for this kitchen room, from top to bottom, all within the moderate budget requirements of the client. Argyle ceiling design by David Brandon Designs. Aquaverse 5H Commercial-grade Stainless-steel Top-load water dispenser with heavy-grade construction and leak prevention design met the both functional and aesthetic needs.

Arch Interiors of Beverly Hills used the Eero Saarinen-style Tulip 30” table and four chairs with bright yellow cushions from InStyleModern.com as the centerpiece of the nook. For final touches, the table and cart were set with Herringbone Stripe table linens in Sunflower, Jars Cantine dinnerware in yellow and a small Ceramic White Cake Stand, all from Williams-Sonoma.

The wheeled Danver stainless steel professional kitchen cart featuring two shelves; a front drawer and a side towel bar and hooks for utensils replaced an old-style butcher block cart.

David Brandon Designs provided the unique argyle-patterned ceiling with Sherwin-Williams Emerald paints.

The centerpiece of the room, a 50s reproduction Formica top kitchen table with handle-back chairs, had served its time. The set up was snug with two chairs, but with the addition of a child, playdates and visiting grandparents, the need grew for more seating, and four chairs was a crowd.

Decorating items included Luxury Linen Grommet Top Curtain Panels and Hand-Woven Braided Natural Jute Rug and Adjustable Curtain Rod Set with a Pewter Ball Finial, all from Overstock.com.

Aquaverse 5H Commercial-grade Stainless-steel Top-load water dispenser met the both functional and aesthetic needs. The Fillista pendant lamp from IKEA kept within the designers’ mid-century modern classic theme. An assortment of décor items, including a vase, ceramic tea pot, coffee press, fruit basket and glassware from HomeGoods finished the look, along with flowers and food from Whole Foods and plates and table linens from Williams-Sonoma.
