Client Project: Classic Kitchen

January 30, 2015

Hi all, first, I want to thank each and every one of you for reading, commenting, liking, etc.  This week has thrown me for a loop.  I’ve dealt with maybe a record number of rude, dishonest, snarky, or just plain mean people in the last 5 days and throw in pregnancy exhaustion and keeping up with a toddler and a renovation and I’m feeling pretty run down.  That’s why every sweet, kind, or thoughtful comment here or on Instagram or another social media outlet has meant even more as of late.  Even though I don’t know most of you personally, I just wanted to thank you so much for your support.

On to a fun client project reveal: a classic kitchen that needed some sprucing up.  When my client moved in, this house was already new fairly new, but it wasn’t her style at all. It had a lot of tan and red and felt really heavy.  She and her husband have been going room by room, adding custom moulding, new paint, and it feels like an entirely new house!  I’m grateful they asked me to come in and put some finishing touches on the rooms to make them feel more complete.

The kitchen got a new subway tile backsplash, new lighting, new paint, and some carefully selected styling pieces.  The barstools, believe it or not, were a garage sale find.  Her husband painted them white and I helped her recover the cushions.  Good as new!

The cabinets and countertops we kept as they were– it truly amazing what paint, a new backsplash, lighting, and furnishings can do to bring a space to life and lighten things up!  Take a look:

 Have a wonderful weekend!

    I love reading your blog! Checking it is always the first thing I do when I get to work. There is always so much wonderful and cheerful inspiration! 🙂
    I’m so sorry that you have had to deal with rude people this week. Nobody needs that, but esp. when they have as many things going on as you do. Prayers for happier, nicer people to be around are coming your way. 🙂

    I love your design work! You have a great talent. My husband and I enjoy watching all your videos about your home renovation. Last night my husband exclaimed after watching your newest video how excited he is to see your house all finished. We have been fans of your work since watching you on KSL 5 news. Thanks for sharing your gifts with us. Good luck to you in your work and in your family!
