Before this young family moved into their new, larger home, they wanted to update and freshen the "shabby chic" look left by the previous owners. We started by painting every room in the house and complimenting most rooms of the home with a high gloss black trim. All finishes and surfaces, including floors, walls and ceilings, were replaced to achieve a mix of traditional and modern. We changed out the kitchen appliances, countertops, backsplash, hardware and lighting in the kitchen. Wallpaper, decor, flooring, finishes and furnishings throughout the entirety of the home made this a house a home.
The homeowners wanted a classic white kitchen. The existing cabinets were white and in good condition so we decided to keep the old cabinets, but update the rest of the kitchen with new finishes. We changed out the old, out-dated tile counters with new Italian marble countertops. The appliances were upgraded with stainless steel. The backsplash is a laser cut marble tile. The cabinets that used to hang above the island was demolished and replaced with these oversized pendants. The cabinet hardware was switched out to new, shiny stainless steel. The existing cushion on the built in breakfast area was reupholstered with a new fabric that provides a punch of color.
