The original kitchen in the 1950 home was cramped and dingy, forcing architect Janet Bloomberg to reimagine the space and open it up to the rest of the living area.

The eye-popping laminated cabinets are from Abet Laminati in Bloomberg's favorite colors. The gray walls are made from Viroc, a substance typically used to underlay other building materials. Photo by: Greg Powers

Here's another before look at the kitchen and dining space. What's most amazing is that Bloomberg didn't move any rooms or alter the footprint of the house during her renovation. She merely modernized the existing layout and refreshed the furniture and fixtures.
Today, Bloomberg's living room flows naturally into the kitchen. The living room's floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer loads of natural light to a previously tucked-away kitchen. The yellow wall and a few classic pieces of furniture from the modernist canon complete the renovation. Photo by: Greg Powers
