See Inside a Designer’s Family-Friendly Kitchen and TV Room
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, designer Amy Elbaum of AE Design gives a virtual tour of the open-plan kitchen and family room in her recently renovated 1960s ranch home in Sherman Oaks, California. In the family room, a built-in cabinet system spans an entire wall, providing storage for kids’ toys and display space for antiques. A long, pillowy sofa and two armchairs create a comfortable spot for watching TV. In the kitchen, Amy took down a wall and added a structural beam to open up the space to the family room and accommodate a large kitchen island. Warm neutral cabinets and a small-scale white tile splashback in a herringbone pattern create a classic, inviting style.
