Oliver and Jamie Perez family
Cooking and baking are huge parts of family life, but we (Jamie & Oliver) wanted to feel more connected while doing what we love - to be able to help with homework or not miss the football game while prepping dinner; to have a space for friends to share a beer and offer a hand. By swapping what was a bedroom space to become the kitchen, and the former kitchen to become a bedroom, the home’s floor plan was rearranged, while the footprint stayed the same. With our architect’s and contractor’s help, we got a spacious, functional mudroom, and the kitchen now flows into the dining room, especially by matching the old-home details. We wanted the kitchen to literally become the center of our home. And now it has.
