When your clients enjoy cooking and entertaining but find their spaces overrun by three children and their assorted accoutrements, an addition is often the best option for breathing new life into a well-loved home. Rachel Reider Interiors worked in collaboration with the architect on the expansion of this suburban home that included a new great room, kitchen, and bathroom that would represent family-friendly functionality with sophistication. The great room provides a welcoming spot for movie nights and cocktail parties alike, with comfortable furnishings in elevated yet durable fabrics in a soothing neutral palette with pops of blue and metallic accents. A wood-paneled ceiling punctuated by a skylight and display of hanging glass orbs draws the eye upward, while a slim gas fireplace at the front of the room injects warmth at the ground level. The new space flows seamlessly into the kitchen, which pairs chef-worthy elements with a modern sensibility. A stunning La Cornue range and custom hood, abundant cabinetry, statement lighting, and an oversized island make it the home’s hub for a daily party of five and all other entertaining occasions.
