Writing about this recent two room online design project left me dreaming of food this morning. Not only for obvious reasons that it's a kitchen and dining area, but also because the finishes we chose for this space remind me of some of my favorite food combinations.
Chocolate and raspberries, steak and red wine, black forrest chocolate cake and cherries came to mind.
This design was created for Susan's home which is currently undergoing renovations. Here is a true to scale floor plan illustration of her new kitchen and dining room...
You can see we provided to birds eye looks at the dining area to show how the table we chose for her fits into the space when the extension is in place.
The plan for the dining area includes a set of four chairs (five when the extension is in place) upholstered in a beautiful blue floral fabric (Meadow Floral from Pier One). The rest of the seating is provided by a character rich, custom built in banquet.
A gorgeous chandelier, colorful mix of pillows and beautiful wine colored dishes bring color and style to this beautiful new corner of Susan's home.
For softness, more color and drama, we used full length drapery panels to flank the sliding glass door that leads outside. For the window over the sink, our recommendation was to purchase a table cloth from Pier One in the same fabric as the dining chairs (Meadow Floral), to use as fabric for a new valance.
The Kitchen is receiving a total makeover including new cabinets, flooring, counter tops, appliances, lighting and hardware. Here is a look at some of the items we chose for the new space...
Over the island, we incorporated three hanging pendant lights from the same collection as the chandelier we placed over the dining table.
We chose mid-toned wood floors and espresso cabinetry. To keep the overall feeling of the space light and open, we incorporated light colored granite countertops and backsplash. The wall color we recommended "Accessible Beige" by Sherwin Williams is also light and bright. It provides amazing contrast to the dark cabinetry and pulls beautiful beige tones from the new countertops.
A few well chosen, colorful accessories give the new kitchen a little personality while keeping the space neat and streamlined.
New upholstered barstools add comfort, function and softness to the island.
A new floor runner in front of the sink also adds a layer of softness to the design (This rug is now available in a few different sizes in my shop, please click here for more details).
Soft blue, tan, chocolate and raspberry-wine create a rich yet serene color scheme for the Susan's brand new kitchen and dining area. Here is a look at both designs together...
