A Great Day at the Wellesley Kitchen Tour

Thanks to the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club for including one of our projects on this year’s Wellesley Kitchen Tour!

This popular annual event showcases six beautiful local homes and their kitchens every year. This time the WHJWC raised $45,000 in a span of four hours – and every penny will go back to the community.

The event takes a nearly year to plan and is professionally run by dedicated volunteers. The Haddad Hakansson team enjoyed getting to know them through this process.

We also had fun meeting and greeting the Tour goers, and a couple of us even got to check out the other beautiful homes.

We appreciate our wonderful clients for opening their home to this event. And thanks to Brody for letting us show off his custom dog dishes to a bunch of strangers. We know he was happy to get them back!

Project Reveal: French Country Kitchen

What a thrill it was to transform the original 1990’s builder’s kitchen into this elegant space!  Although the original layout worked, the island was small and awkwardly placed.  The style of the original oak cabinetry and Corian countertops didn’t fit with the style of the adjacent rooms in this open floor plan home.

Living in The Big Apple – Part 2

As you can see,  wine is stored below. But, the cabinet door is hinged on the bottom with…Read More
