The Dallas Traditional Home Showhouse is over! We are all feeling sad about it. It was super hard to take everything out of the home and see it become empty again. However, the home sold has and now a happy family is living in it!Read More
I just finished up a kitchen renovation this past week. The client wanted to enlarge their island so it was more functional for their busy family.
They wanted to keep the existing floor as well as the cabinet color. I am alwasys happy to work around a budget because sometimes it just isn't affordable to totally gut a kitchen and start over. I'm know as the designer that can work within the clients budget and pull it all together beautifully.
We took out the old island and had a new one made for them. We added storage to the side of it and some great column legs. We painted the island a nice blue/green color from Sherwin Williams to make it the center of attention.
We chose a creamy white quartz countertop and made sure it worked with the cabinet color. We chose beautifully.
I just love the new legs! They really add some charm to the kitchen.
We added crystal knobs to the island. They are brushed bronze like the rest of the cabinets but the crystal makes the island unique.
We added 3 new pendant lights and painted the wall too.
BEFORE AND AFTER
They had a built in desk area that wasn't used too often, other than a dumping ground for clutter. We turned it into a coffee/wine bar. We added glass shelving and lighting so we could display some pretty glasses and mugs. Painting the bottom half darker really made it stand out and gave it a sophisticated, classy look.
We changed the backsplsh in the entire kitchen. The honeycomb marble backsplash is to die for and makes the floor we couldn't change work. There is a touch of the floor color in the marble.
I'm always on the hunt for unique accessories. I found the above wooden antique pastry press and it adds a touch o whimsy to this bar area.
I accessorized the kitchen for them to add some color and texture.
I love adding baskets to my decor. They add such beautiful texture, especially up against white or cream.
I'm so in love with this Tassel Loloi Rug that I found! Totally makes the kitchen come alive.
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
