Hi there. The other day, I posted the first part of a whole house on-line design plan we recently created for Bernadette's beautiful home. I shared the plan we designed for her Living Room and Family Room. Today, it's all about the Kitchen and Dining Room.
Before we get into the details, here is what all four rooms look like side by side...

This project begin as a one room design plan, as we started to work together the client, Bernadette, decided to expand the project to include the entire main level of her home. This allowed us design the spaces together which resulted in each room having it's own personality and purpose with perfect flow from one room to the next.
In the Kitchen…
We began with the same custom color palette that we used for the rest of her home.
Our recommendations included a cabinet makeover with creamy white paint and a distressed dark gray paint treatment on the center island.
For a timeless and clean look, we suggested classic creamy white subway tiles for the new backsplash. These finishes are the perfect compliment to the new countertop we recommended,
For contrast and warmth, we brought in a gorgeous dark wood dining set and rattan bar stools for texture.
Kitchens have a lot of hard surfaces, to soften the space and to bring in a little pattern and color, we added full length drapery to the windows next to the table…
…and a beautiful tailored valance to the window over the sink…
A rug runner,
pretty kitchen accessories and new dishes complete the new kitchen design we created for Bernadette.
In the Dining Room…
We started with a beautiful hutch and round dining table, already in the space.
To give the room character and architectural interest, we suggested adding panel style wainscoting.
This set of four prints was used to flank the opening to the dining room from the foyer.
A simple, geometric rug lends softness and pattern. We suggested new upholstered dining chairs to give her existing dining set a fresh new look.
We finished off this design with a collage of four wall mirrors and a grouping of candle holders as a dramatic centerpiece.
Here is another look at all four rooms together...
This four room online design plan included true-to-scale floorplans for each space, a custom paint color palette, product source list and step by step instructions on how to implement the new design.
Thank you, Bernadette for this opportunity.
