When you buy an older house, it takes effort to personalize it and make it your own. Just ask designer Tammara Stroud of Seattle-based interior design firm Tammara Stroud Design. “The previous owners of this home installed a kitchen island that was about five feet tall and functioned as a display cabinet rather than an island for food prep, entertaining, and dining,” Stroud explains. That choice worked well for the former residents, but Stroud’s clients needed to make a change. “For this young family, the kitchen represents the heart and soul of the home. The original island placement made the space feel disconnected from the rest of the house. It did not feel friendly or welcoming,” says Stroud.
