Reimagined in Santa Clarita
February, 2024 - Issue #227

The new fireplace with beautiful plaster surround is topped with a framed TV that looks like a piece of art. "It's 2024; nobody wants to see a TV anymore," says Rebecca Rollins. Flanking the fireplace are custom-made built-ins with closed storage below and glass storage above to show off handpicked accessories.

The equation seems easy enough. Take one original-builder kitchen from the 1980s, add in a sought-after interior designer and get a jaw-dropping result.

This is one large space, so the family room needed to be updated to complement the kitchen.
Reconfiguring the layout in this room was key, says the designer.

"This project is an office favorite," shares Rebecca Rollins of Rebecca Rollins Interiors. "This client has an eye for design and she was willing to push the envelope. It's breathtaking everywhere you look."

The large black framed window in the kitchen brings in more natural light, which adds to the richness. "Can we talk about the island size we were able to get in here!?" exclaims Rollins, who's remodel optimized the space.

The space was "dated beyond belief," recalls Rollins. "The peninsula cut off this kitchen and made it feel even smaller than it already was."
A sort of "musical chairs" ensued to take better advantage of the space. "The sink got moved to the window wall, the refrigerator got moved to the stove wall, and the stove got moved to give the best hood moment we can get in here," shares the designer.

The plaster hood over the new freestanding range is another added layer of necessary texture to give this kitchen depth.

And because the kitchen is connected to the family room, that area earned a gorgeous update, too. "The custom white sofa - crafted in a high performance fabric so it can easily be cleaned - pairs with a blue-toned ottoman, vintage-style rug and boucle accent chairs to add tons of texture to this space," says Rollins.
