Kitchen Makeover-Rich With Detail
We love this homeowner's great choices, from an aged stucco treatment on the walls to alder wood cabinets and porcelain floors.
BeforeWhen 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."
