Going Old School in The Bay Area

By

A young family of four enlisted the help of Julia Goodwin Design to turn their kitchen into the heart of the home, where their children can grow with ease and are encouraged to learn and play. Bold colors, vintage, and antique accessories play nicely against the classic bold green subway tile. The two tone counters and cabinets ground the kitchen visually while providing depth to the room.
