Kitchen Fit for a Crowd
With four teenagers in the house, this family needed a space where mom can be cooking in the kitchen and the kids can be hanging out in the adjoining TV/Wii area. Also, their large extended family often gathers here for dinners and celebrations, so having plenty of room to comfortably accommodate all is important. Enter interior designer Tobi Fairley to make all their wishes come true.
