“It just so occurred that the property owner is the closest point I have to a sister,” says Los Angeles designer Sapna Aggarwal. “It was amazing, [she and her partner] were purchasing and renovating a house, and it was apparent I was going to be the one particular to aid them.” 

Sapna’s romantic relationship with the house owner intended she was intimately acquainted with her individuality, tastes, and aesthetic, which extra depth and which means to her general vision. In specific, the kitchen was motivated by a quite a few-several years-lengthy dream. “She was generally seriously attracted to inexperienced kitchens. I desired to create anything that would be exclusive and have identity but also be timeless,” Sapna says. She chose what she calls an “earthy green” and paired it with similarly earthy neutrals, creating a tapestry of tones and textures that is cohesively soothing, new, exceptional, and modern-day all at after. 

“I genuinely like mixing a bunch of resources in a room, and then getting it all arrive collectively the place it seems to be intentional,” Sapna states. “I want persons to stop being frightened of bringing character and identity into spaces and contemplating it is heading to be loud. [A room] can be stunning and zen and have personality, texture, and character.” 

Before: The former kitchen felt a bit closed in.

The right before: “It was just trapped in a diverse time,” Sapna claims. She notes the dwelling was crafted in the 1950s, and it may well or may not have been reworked in the 1980s. “The kitchen was quite outdated and extremely closed off. I’m not opposed to each individual space having its possess space—it does not normally have to be an open concept—but it just felt actually secluded, there wasn’t a great deal light-weight coming in. It seriously needed some contemporary adore.” 

Immediately after: Sapna aimed to generate anything that would be “evergreen,” and could change, and take on new aesthetics as the owners, who are a young pair, go through different phases of their life.
