When Steve and Leslie Lake moved into their 1930s Tudor home in Tulsa, Oklahoma, they got a kitchen that hadn't been remodeled since Hair premiered on Broadway. Dingy and dark, its wood cabinets were equally matched by surrounding brown (brown!) appliances that barely worked and plain-Jane linoleum floors. And then there was the red floral wallpaper. Enough said.
After living in the house for about a year, the Lakes teamed up with architects John and Sherri Duvall and interior designer Lana Nelson, Leslie's mom. "I found out through the remodel just how lucky I was," Leslie says. "My mom was great at pulling together all the design pieces."
