Entryway With Sunny Yellow Door

We're not sure which we love more: the sunny yellow door or the graphic black-and-white area rug. Together, these pieces create an eye-catching entryway, complete with a large mirror, helmet-rack and place to park a bike.

Communal Kitchen and Dining Area

Polished concrete floors extend from the entryway to the glass-and-steel garage door. With tall ceilings, white walls and contemporary furniture, it's hard to believe that this spacious kitchen was once a garage.

Gray-and-White Geometric Backsplash

To draw even more attention to the open kitchen, designer Noz Nozawa outfitted the space with a geometric backsplash. Thanks to its neutral color scheme, the treatment perfectly complements its surroundings.

Clean Cabinetry and Stainless Appliances

Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry ensures that this communal kitchen has plenty of storage. At the same time, a stainless fridge, large sink and dishwasher streamline the meal-prep process.

Functional Open Shelving

Because this is a communal space, ease of access and organized storage are important to the kitchen's design. Thus, open shelves provide stylish storage of mugs and spices, while cabinets and drawers keep other kitchen necessities close.

Peninsula Becomes Eat-In Counter

A peninsula with bright blue barstools adds extra seating off the dining area. Their industrial style pairs well with the pendant lights overhead.

Metalwork Add Industrial Flair

Designer Noz Nozawa wanted to add playful, industrial details to this converted garage. So she introduced metalwork wherever she could, like the pendant lights and barstools.

Pendant Lights With Geometric Style

Geometric pendants were a cool way to bring a modern touch to the space. Better still, the lights brighten the kitchen counters from morning to night.

Dining Area With Garage Door

The dining area offers enough seating for six, while the garage door opens the space to sunshine and warm weather. A geometric rug completes the design and further defines this eating area.
