kitchen renovation before after remodel project west elm counter stools open flow layout

Jenny shares her kitchen renovation — and what a transformation it was! She was able to open up her space by removing two walls and creating an open-plan kitchen + living + dining area for her family…




I just completed a huge home renovation on my kitchen! Our contractor was able tear down two walls, including a large load bearing one and completely opened up the space.



I utilized several west elm pieces to complete the look. We have the Scoop-Back Stool on our island. The open shelves have most of our everyday wear but the Owl Cookie Jar and Modernist Bowls add color and a fun whimsical touch on the shelves. In the adjoining living area I have the Ikat Ogee Curtains and the Martini Side Table. The west elm pieces definitely add fun pops of color and interest into my design. I like to think of my style as “cozy modern” and west elm is a perfect fit.

Wow! I live the asymmetrical design in this kitchen and the balance between the white and dark. Such thoughtful design.

This is a beautiful transformation. But what happened to the teal oven? I can think of a lot of kitchy decorators that would love to get their hands on it 🙂

That she got rid of that amazing vintage blue oven makes me kind of sad. Otherwise, it’s beautiful!!
