I got a call about a year and a half ago from a new client wanting to update her house. She had seen an article in a magazine that mentioned how we like to reuse and repurpose on our projects. Her kitchen had not been updated since she had moved in 13 years ago. It was very colorful as you can see in the before pictures. She is an artist and really likes color, but we showed her that she can keep things neutral and add color with her art and fabrics instead. Here are some before and after shots. We had a new hood built over the cooktop, painted all the cabinets SW Creamy. The walls were painted Farrow and Ball: Pigeon. The island was painted Farrow and Ball: Mouse's Back [one of my favorite colors]. New appliances, new countertops, subway tile backsplash. We took the old yellow kitchen table and added a new top, along with repainting the chairs and base. After re-positioning the table and chairs to the bay window area....it really opened up the kitchen. The upholstered high back couch is now one of her favorite places to sit. Along with new light fixtures, new iron knobs, it is a much cleaner look. We definitely saved money by not ripping out the cabinets, or getting a new dining set. We still gave her some color, but a much calmer version.....Stay tuned for more pictures of other rooms we did.
