Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg's Vintage-Inspired Kitchen Remodel
For busy Hollywood couple Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg, decorating their new Los Angeles home posed a daunting and time consuming task. With bi-coastal work schedules, they knew they needed interior design help made easy. In January, they found Decorist, and realized immediately that the unparalleled flexibility of an all-virtual platform was exactly what their jet-setting responsibilities required.
After such success with their first Decorist project, a gorgeous mid-century bungalow style living room, they are back for more! And this time, they’ve tackled a renovation of their kitchen.
This time Jamie and Bryan worked with the uber talented San Francisco based Decorist Celebrity Designer Will Wick to turn their existing tired kitchen into something reflective of the couple’s fun style. For the renovation Decorist partnered with Lowe's to beautifully and affordably open up the tight space, and create a charming vintage-inspired look with modern functionality.
The 50’s era stove might be our favorite element. Refurbished to maintain its quintessential vintage look, it sets the tone as the statement and focal point of the countertop area. To keep the area as spacious as possible, upper cabinets were painted white and kept to a minimum. The white subway tile adds subtle texture while maintaining the airy feel.
To add some depth, rich coffee-brown shelves ground the area and provide additional storage space. All existing cabinets were painted in a light gray, and the existing butcher block was stained chocolate brown to match the shelves.
To create a rustic pantry feel, a utility cabinet was placed on top of the Silestone ariel counters. The white farmhouse sink with nickel faucet has the vintage functionality a tasteful sheen. The rubbed bronze light fixture adds charm and functionality. And of course, we cannot fail to mention the french door fridge and dishwasher by Kitchenaid - two kitchen essentials!
At Decorist, we know kitchens are the hubs of daily life, so we value their livability. Will Wick is no different, so he payed special attention to the booth area. Going for 50’s diner-style, the booth itself was reupholstered in a gray reversed denim with trim done in true side. The table is a salvaged piece of carrera marble with vintage table stands. And centered above, a Will Wick original design pendant from his store Battersea.
Already dripping in personality, the kitchen floor is especially unique. It was curated by Jamie and Bryan themselves. The retro 50’s pattern ceramic tile was inspired by California Missions, and is the greatest example of the collaboration that takes place between designer and client. We love the subtle blue and brown pattern.
