A Classic Bungalow Gets a Modern Makeover
A decorator with a taste for modern furniture and old-school glamour concocts a fizzy blend for her family’s Birmingham, Alabama, bungalow.
McMillan removed all upper cabinets in her kitchen redo and ran subway tile all the way to the ceiling. “Then there were these vast walls to fill, so I framed these photographs. But I didn’t want to pierce the tile to hang them. I had these metal shelves just lying around, so I turned them on their sides and propped the photographs against the wall, and it worked,” she says. The counters are stained walnut, and the cabinets are a lacquered finish with bronze pulls.
