AFTER: Troyer removed the peninsula to combine the small kitchen and breakfast room into one large, open space. Now the entire room benefits from both windows, and the room is flooded with light. White tile helps keep it as bright as possible. The original windows were saved, offering views of Hollywood Boulevard and a tie to the past. “These clients were really fun to work with — they were well traveled, sophisticated and had a great art collection but were also quirky in a good way,” the designer says. A few small details worth noting are the Carrara marble on the shelf beneath the bay window and the open cabinet shelves to the left, used for cookbooks. The owners are wine lovers, and the large glass-front refrigerator stores their collection.“It was very important to keep this wall light; if you look at the situation before, you’ll see why,” Troyer says. Thus, he eschewed upper cabinets and made up the difference with extensive storage across the room. Cabinet paint: Stiffkey Blue, Farrow & Ball; refrigerator, wine refrigerator, dishwasher: Miele; pendant lights: Satellite 3 with natural brass finish, Schoolhouse Electric; sinks: Julian; faucets: unlacquered brass, Newport Brass; reclaimed wood on island and on shelves: Croft House; range: Wolfe A lucky budget saver: One of the homeowner’s fathers is a contractor, and he just happened to have scads of beautiful handmade white 4- by 4-inch tile he wasn’t using. “It has lots of character to it,” Troyer says. He took full advantage, using it throughout the house (he also renovated bathrooms during a different renovation phase). He staggered the squares here, creating a fresh take that mashes up square tiles with a subway tile pattern. Saving on this item meant the owners could splurge on custom-painted ceramic tiles from Ann Sacks over the range.One of the “living” finishes the couple opted for is brass, which is seen on the hardware, lights and faucets. It starts off looking shiny, but will age and patinate over time.
