We purchased new stainless appliances and a sink to begin... changed the brass cabinet knobes to stainless and instant update.
Here was their wallpaper & chair rail on the main kitchen wall... BEFORE
I added beadboard wainscotting to the bottom of the wall & painted the wall two tones of a sage green, painted the chair rail cream to match the ceiling,
added a beautiful border and... WOW
To the side wall we replaced her shelf with a fresh coat of cream paint and added some of her favorite
antique kitchen pieces. I also added a black tin with white flowers and a bunch of dried florals tied with a bow...all to mimic what was going on in the border. this green color was such a great choice as it adds a freshness and a very new updated feeling to their tired kitchen.
To the front window wall we added a beautiful valance in shades of blue, green, and white.
You will also notice the new granite countertops, faucet, & stainless sink in this photo.
More decorative plates above.
(The setting on my camera did not do a good job of capturing the colors here,
but I think you can get the idea).
I would have loved to show you the rest of the job, but just didn't get the photos to do it.
All the years I have been doing design I have not bothered to take before and after pictures...well in this job.
I learned a big lesson ...plan to take Great Before and After photos!
Hope you enjoyed a small piece of my summer design job.
Design Work From the Heart!
