TRANSFORMATIONS - NO. 2

Check out the wow factor of this open plan kitchen-living room. Second sneak preview of Cortona town house...

The Fedi Team have done it again! In Transformations: No. 1 we showed you the ground floor makeover of this Cortona town house: the concept was to keep it simple and rustic as per tradition. In contrast, the project for the first floor was to create stylish, but functional spaces in a homely, but smart context.
What was originally a cold, cheerless space has become an open plan living area which just oozes style, comfort and character. The insertion of old oak beams creates atmosphere, the stone-laid floor - a shade lighter than those on the ground floor – is a departure from the norm, but it compliments the stone fireplace, hand built by a stone-mason, as a central feature for the room. The fitted kitchen, the dresser and even the dining table were all hand-crafted in wood with pull-outs and slide-outs to maximise space. Even the kitchen sink was carefully chosen to be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing!
Watch out for Transformations – No. 3, where you’ll get to see the bedrooms, bathrooms and gorgeous little study!
