THIS RETRO KITCHEN TRANSFORMATION WILL MAKE YOUR JAW DROP
In a competitive real estate market, it’s important to look for the diamond in the rough. That’s why when Aisling Mittman, VP of Design Marketplace for e-design service Laurel & Wolf, came across an untouched, traditional ranch house she knew there was plenty of opportunity lying within its walls, and decided to work . Here’s how she totally transformed the home’s outdated, retro kitchen.
Renovation began the day Aisling closed on the fixer-upper, located in a quiet Los Angeles neighborhood. After the kitchen was gutted, Aisling brought in interior designer Nadia Dillion to help transform the space from retro to modern.
The kitchen’s dark, red brick wall was completely concealed and the dated tile floors were covered with slate, for a look inspired by Aisling’s honeymoon in Scandinavia.
Pre-renovation, the cabinets, paint colors, and tile felt like relics from the 1970s.
