Kitchen Updates Suite Families’ Lifestyles, Home Values

By Megan Swoyer

“Iris and Richard Schloss’ kitchen renovation goal was to turn a 1980s, white cabinet-filled space into a warm, inviting gathering and cooking spot for their growing family that now includes several grandchildren.

“We blew out the back of the house,” explained interior designer Barbi Krass of Colorworks Studio in Birmingham. Their plan called for an 11-foot expansion for the kitchen and adjoining dining area.

The family opted for oak floors, custom-stained cabinetry (two different tones to play off each other), an eye-catching cook-top feature complemented with gorgeous, handcrafted Jeffrey Court tile and an island with a rich coffee-hued stain.

“Iris wanted sunny yellows and reds,” Krass explained.

Carbott said adding an ultra-personal stamp to your kitchen can truly set it apart. “We’re seeing personal style on display more and more, with open shelving and pops of color,” Carbott said. Schloss added her signature to her kitchen by highlighting a favorite collection. “As a fan of antique cookie jars, Iris (Schloss) wanted us to design a spot for her treasured collection,” Krass said, “so we built a special shelf to highlight them.”

Evoking a kitchen in the French countryside, the space charms all who enter. In fact, during get-togethers, the family can’t wait to gather around the inviting red table (made by Lorts), which features a wax-distressed finish. ”  Read the full article here.
