When Lindsey Mahoney purchased her home, she knew she needed to make quite a few changes. Though she was charmed by its vintage motif, her goal was to create a space that reflected a modern family’s lifestyle, so she set to work gutting the kitchen, putting in new flooring and creating a sleek design that any homeowner would envy.
