See how designer Cynthia Soda brings an outdated home into the present with a striking black and white palette and a new floor plan. A welcoming foyer with a built-in desk leads to the open-concept kitchen, where exposed beams, glass pendants over the 12-foot island and a custom white, black and gold marble backsplash are standout features. Cynthia also added a modern gas fireplace insert and reupholstered the client’s ’80s-inspired chairs with an eye-catching spotted print for a home that is old-meets-new with tons of personality.
