The incredible open concept kitchen you’re about to see wasn’t always that lovely and that stylish. In fact, when a young couple purchased their modern Craftsman-style home in Georgetown, Texas, they knew they would need to give the dated kitchen and the adjacent living room a complete makeover.

Designer Matt Tsang helped the couple create an open kitchen that now includes an eye-catching backsplash, natural elements and mixed metals for warmth and depth.
The updated color palette includes light gray walls, a white ceiling and a beautiful tile backsplash in a soft sea-glass hue. The base of the island has a rich gray color that helps anchor the room.
“The brass knobs added a glam warmth to the space, and they work perfectly with the backsplash,” Tsang says. “Adding that detail helps the room avoid feeling flat with all those cabinets on the back wall.”
A wood-look porcelain tile floor offers durability and warm tones. The tile extends into the living room, which was previously carpeted.
Tsang demolished the previous kitchen, pantry and laundry area to create a more efficient floor plan. Removing the old peninsula and pony wall allowed him to extend the kitchen to the former breakfast nook and open it more to the living room.
The updated living room’s style is transitional, with two brown leather club chairs, a gray sofa, a brass coffee table with oval frame and claw feet, and a handwoven gray area rug. “It’s such an open concept, the spaces had to really play off one another,” Tsang says. “They’re now truly the heart of the home.”
