See how designer Olivia Botrie of Dart Studio overhauled a dark and dated kitchen with an open-concept layout, plenty of natural light and modern cabinetry. She injected mid-century style nods such as slab walnut doors, shaker-like cabinets and understated brass tabs. The spacious banquette is an ideal hangout for the whole family to dine, work and look out onto the lush backyard framed by graphic black doors. Plus, Olivia shows how to seamlessly incorporate a powder room into the kitchen-dining area.
