After moving to a "new" old house in Los Angeles, Laurie wanted to make her city home a place of wellness and relaxation. Her focus was honoring the outdoors, but still prioritizing a personalized yet functional space. Laurie's resulting kitchen explores the concept of "biophilia" — our innate human tendency to seek out and feel joy in nature. Her design centered around scenic green vistas that put you in a relaxed mental state, with a touch of vintage charm to celebrate the 100 year history of the home.

Watch how Laurie transformed her 100 year old home's kitchen into a space that acknowledges the roots of its past while laying a stunning foundation to bring the outside, in.
"I fell in love with the enamel finish warm ivory color of the Heritage Series range on the spot. It immediately caught my eye in a sea of stainless steel — it's rich, and somehow modern and classic at the same time. I'm inspired by the mix of modernity and historical design in this piece — it fit perfectly in my 'new old' house. The metal trim around the oven doors feels both industrial and charming, and the bars and handles on both the range and the hood make it feel elevated and special." - Laurie March
"I designed a wall of windows above the countertop that look out on my vertical garden. Our home exists in the middle of the city — but when you look out the windows, all you see by design is greenery. The sink, prep, and clean up functionalities are all integrated into this section of the kitchen." - Laurie March
"I knew the 48 inch range was going to be the center of my kitchen design, so having a size and color matched gorgeous statement hood gave the space something to anchor it with our high ceilings. It all looks brilliant against my un-oiled soapstone countertops and splash." - Laurie March
“For me, it was especially intriguing to add an unexpected accent to the appliances. The Bertazzoni Décor Sets as part of the Collezione Metalli selection are available for all range and range hood knobs as well as handle finials. I chose the finish with actual gold plating. This adds a very authentic and 'pride in craftsmanship' element to the space.” - Laurie March
