When Leslie and Charley Parnell moved into their current home, they knew right away they wanted to lose some walls and give the home a more open floor plan. Working with designers Scott Paterek and Tammie Weaver of Massimo Interior Design, they ended up with a spacious kitchen (which happened to make the cover of our September issue!) perfectly suited to their urban-inspired style.

From the story: “It was mostly taking out walls,” Scott says. “The kitchen was isolated, and the staircase completely cut the house in half.” The team ended up taking out 4 to 5 feet of wall around the enclosed staircase and moving the kitchen wall with the range back about 4 feet, removing an unnecessary hallway in the process. “The combination of those two things really changed the view lines. Now the living room communicates to the kitchen,” Scott says. Read the full story.
