Kitchen/Family Room

Foxglove Interior Design & Cyndie Jerome Designs

The goal in the kitchen and family room was to achieve a look that will allow the homeowner to enjoy the view– to be light and airy, but still have warmth and an inviting, cozy feel. The idea was to open the space, making it feel more open and spacious, first, by removing the upper bank of cabinets over the peninsula and then installing a hood fan over the cook top with pot lights on either side.


The new wall colours brought warmth with the green and red giving that punch to the room. These colours compliment the birds'-eye maple cabinetry which has such an elegant feel. Staining the floors with a darker stain gives the cabinets some contrast allowing that birds'-eye maple to be more of a feature in the room. The green backsplash colour with the fabric on the kitchen chairs brings a fun and bright feel to the space.

As a beautiful feature in the room, the fireplace was updated with ledge rock resurfacing and a Napoleon gas insert.

The wallpaper is made from cork, almost having the look of birch; we are incorporating that same look with the table lamp and the area rug.

The upholstered furniture is manufactured in Ontario; Brentwood Classics was the first company to go completely green with their production of furniture. The designers selected four chairs and a large ottoman. This will allow the homeowner to feel a level of comfort to either sit by the fire looking into the kitchen or sit looking out at the wonderful view of the lake from the east wall. The three bar stools will also give additional seating to the space.
