Posts Tagged ‘Kitchen’

You know the saying, “Out of something bad can come something good.” This rang true for my clients in Austin when their home became badly damaged a year ago by torrential rains. Everything that we had rehabbed three years prior was completely destroyed. So, when they asked me back to help fix what had been damaged, I was more than happy to come up with a new design for this wonderful family.

The overall interior color of the home was changed to a beautiful warm white. We went with darker floors, a new living room and a completely new kids’ bathroom — but I think I had the most fun in the kitchen.  With the first rehab we needed to work with the existing granite countertops and the original island position. This time, since we had to gut the entire kitchen, we were able to work with a blank canvas. My color palette was simple — a mix of creamy whites, antique brass, rattan and brick.

Below, my inspiration behind the kitchen — brick for the backsplash, paint from Farrow & Ball for the island, a creamy piece of stone for the countertops, as well as my brass bracelet (a stand in for the future hardware).
