Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg Did the 1 Thing Most Homeowners Ignore During a Home Reno
One of our pet peeves is seeing the bones of a beautiful old home ripped out and its charm steamrolled in the renovation process. Maybe it's because Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg have great taste or maybe it's because her role on the fairy-tale drama Once Upon a Time instilled an appreciation for nostalgia, but this newlywed couple honored their California kitchen's midcentury design elements when updating the space — something most homeowners completely ignore at great detriment to their design.
The busy actors simplified the makeover process by working with online interior design company Decorist. They were paired with Decorist celebrity designer Will Wick and retailer Lowe's, who provided stylish yet affordable materials for the reno. Will's design was a sunny take on traditional meets modern that honored the couple's love of old things. Jamie says the design process was easy. "We sent Will photos and measurements of our kitchen along with some inspiration photos. He sent us a 3D mockup of his design with links to buy the products he suggested."
