kitchen sneak peek

Here is a little sneak peek at the beautiful custom piece that is in my client's kitchen. This piece creates such a great visual from the kitchen to the back sun room where the kitchen table will be. Also, it will serve as a nice storage cabinet and provide easy access for table linens etc. During the course of planning out the kitchen I had come across a few ideas that had inspired the look for this cabinet. I think it looks beautiful and offers a great way to end the space in the kitchen but also giving it such an interesting and nice area to display some of her ceramic and glass pieces.

Here are a few of the inspirations.....

Below is a picture of the kitchen still in progress. We went the other day and picked out the tile for the backsplash, which you can see stills needs to be installed.

Here are the tiles we picked out. The beautiful mosaic tile will be framed out in the crown molding (to the right of the mosaic tile) and installed behind the range. On the right side below, is the field tile and then the 3 x 3 tile sitting on top, is going to be used as an accent tile mixed in with the field tile in the bar area. The 3 x 3 tile is one of a few tiles my client bought during her recent trip to Italy.

The finishing touches are all coming together, I can't wait to see the tiles all up.

house progress: part three

If you have been following along with my latest posts, here is the next reveal on the progress of my clients house. You will see that the photos are really different from my previous post. These are the latest pictures I took the other day. The kitchen is a huge change, can't wait to go back and see the granite now that it has been installed. Love all the space they are going to have in their kitchen and the beautiful island will give them an additional surface for eating, entertaining and prepping.


The first coat of paint has been put on the walls, it really transformed the space. The dining room is painted a really pretty shade of navy. With all of the white trim, wainscoting and columns, it really gives the room a dramatic punch of color. The majority of the rest of the walls are painted a neutral tan which compliments the navy really well.

This is the back sun room below, where the kitchen table will be on one end and the TV on the back wall. The walls here are painted with a real calming grayish, blue-green shade, it really balances the navy in the front of the house. The open ended knee wall was a great way to divide the room but still separate it enough from the living room, while remaining open and great to access the room on both ends.

This picture below is the upstairs hall bath, the tiles are neutral but was paired up nicely with a really pretty onyx and black border tile that pulls the colors from the granite on the vanity.

Below is the master bath shower, still in the works. A creamy white tile was used with some marble accents, the border and the floor, adding to the very pretty elegant space. I can't wait to show pictures of the beautiful glass crystal chandelier that will be hung up in the bathroom.

I hope to go back this week and can't wait to see all the finishing touches coming together. Stay tuned for a follow up post.
