1941 Classic Eclectic
Cino Adelson and Family
My 1941 kitchen was dated and dysfunctional with a cramped eating area, awkward back entry, and a mundane palette. Now, the vibrant russet color energizes the space while custom cabinetry, millwork, and tile harmonize with the original house. Generous storage and counters make prep, eating and gathering a joy. McMonigal Architects looked beyond the kitchen to improve connections and light to the adjacent dining, hall, and office. Additional closets and cabinets help organize the back entry. Clever solutions integrate the existing window locations to save expensive exterior brick changes. Even the cat bowl locations were considered to avoid spills and are recessed below a built-in china cabinet.
