The Wembley Project Interior Design in Chagrin Falls, Oh

When this family first moved into their Chagrin Falls home, one of the younger children told their mother to “get in her spot.” Wondering what spot that was? In front of the stove! For 13 years this mom cooked grilled cheese after grilled cheese (and many other meals) for her four children — and their friends and extended family. While she loves to cook and spend time in her kitchen, her children were getting older, and she knew it was time to update one of the most used rooms in the house.

We worked together to reconfigure the layout of her kitchen. The original island, where the family ate many meals, was half the size it is today. By replacing the cabinets in the kitchen we were able to open up the walkways and create a larger island where the family can gather and enjoy a meal and time together.

When working on big interior design projects, like reshaping a room design, remember that the “little” details can also make quite a statement. One of my favorite parts of the design is in the lighting we choose for the space. Another design element that packs a punch of personality is the tile in the backsplash. It is an investment that will bring joy everyday. 

The blue color scheme continued into the dining room and throughout the entire first floor, creating a flow and continuity between the rooms.
