That’s right, celebrity designer Nate Berkus, whose appearances on The Oprah Show catapulted him to fame, recently renovated the 80-square-foot kitchen above his garage and showed the end result to the Los Angeles Times!
His kitchen design goal for this personal project was to salvage as much of the charm and character of the original 1928 Spanish Colonial House, after all, he lives in a historical house, namely the original carriage house of Hancock Park, an iconic and affluent residential neighborhood in the central region of the City of Los Angeles.
What did that mean for his project? He revamped the division with a vintage design Shaker-style cabinetry but kept the 1920s glass and iron frame window above the sink. Despite his love for vintage and his goals to maintain the original character of the room, Nate Berkus had no intention of living in the past, even though his inspiration was Vintage Design.
His overall goal for the project was to bring a stylish vintage kitchen to the modern day. “I always reach for things that have age and patina, and I’m aware of what already has inherent character, but the more I’m out there in the world shopping, and sourcing the more interesting some of the newer solutions are”, Berkus said. This statement translates into an elegant design that mixes vintage and contemporary styles to produce a stunning end result.
For additional cabinets, to add to the existent ones, Berkus turned to IKEA, then finished them off with textured melamine doors from the Impression collection in a Tahoe finish from a company called Semihandmade, which designs custom-look drawer and cabinet facings for basic cabinet boxes.
The fronts are three-quarters of an inch thicker than standard IKEA facings, and flat-front panels extend slightly past the drawer or cabinet base for a more seamless, built-in look. “It’s brilliant, actually,” Berkus said of the storage solution. “You can buy the cabinet boxes from anywhere, and they sell the doors and the skins so you can change anything to what you want it to be.”
New, darkly stained butcher block countertops were chosen for classic appeal, not practicality because Berkus opted for a more inspirational and decorative approach. The kitchen services what is a home office space for Berkus and his husband, designer Jeremiah Brent, and is not the main kitchen prep area for the family, which includes 2-year-old daughter Poppy.
