Add a chandelier for extra sparkle in the kitchen.
"For budget reasons, and because the existing cherry cabinetry was really well constructed, we chose not to fully renovate the house's original farmhouse-style kitchen," says House & Home editor Suzanne Dimma. Instead, she and husband Arriz Hassam removed the upper cabinets and replaced them with a streamlined shelf and cabinet combination for a new look. They also added a custom island with a marble waterfall countertop, which has become indispensable both in everyday life and when entertaining. "This is the hub of the house. I picked up the orange kilim rug in Paris and keep moving it to different rooms of the house."
