Transforming an Interior Without Altering the Exterior
Designer Teresa Beck of Columbia, Tenn.-based Tbektu Design + Development was brought on board this project to open up and brighten a kitchen without impacting its historical exterior.
By taking some of the space from the attic, Beck was able to build a cove above the island that created the illusion of higher ceilings. The wall between the kitchen and the adjacent family room was also taken down to open the space.
Sage green cabinetry pairs with square, glass mosaic tile and argyle-shaped white tile on the backsplash for a warm but bright appeal.
The bar boasts glass fronts with interior lighting – which echoes the glass fronts on the upper cabinetry around the perimeter – to keep the kitchen feeling light and airy.
“I loved presenting the plans and materials to my client and seeing her delighted reaction,” said Beck.
