We renovated our 1920’s bungalow when our first child was born, completely reconfiguring the layout to accommodate our growing family. Opening up the kitchen, dining and living spaces wasn’t just an aesthetic choice — it also helps me keep on eye on those kiddos. We added a new laundry room and master bedroom to the downstairs, and over the new addition, we added an upstairs space that I use as an office and yoga studio. Vaulted ceilings immediately made the space feel bigger and brighter, while cedar timber adds tonal warmth and interest. As artists, my husband and I both love to collect and display art, so white walls throughout made a perfect blank canvas while feeling clean and timeless.
