Kitchen Before And After

I am so far behind on posting client projects photos. Today is the day to start the catch up process! Woo hoo! So here we go with one of my favorite kitchen before and afters.


We started out with a very dated, very dark, very ….ah… green kitchen. smile



We sprinkled a little fairy dust around. Mark Reece with Grace Fabrications was the lead sprinkler. Marilyn Heard worked her magic on the ceiling as the oak tree “grew” through the window and straight across the room creating an outdoor dining area. We loved it!



From 19something to timeless and classic.  Designer tip: I painted the toe kick a dark gray to increase the shadow under the base cabinet so that your eye didn’t go to a white line at the bottom but traveled up the wall to the good stuff. How much better are those pretty little glass front square doors at the ceiling line than that awful green furr down? Scroll back and forth to study all of the changes.


The sink used to face this dead end wall. That’s depressing. We tore out all of the cabinets and the furr down on this wall making the entire area customized storage.




By consolidating the double wall ovens and the cooktop into one fabulous slide in we gained enough room on the opposite side of the room to place the sink under the window AND create a beautiful focal point with the range and hood. BOOM!


 Now everyone wants to wash dishes… well that might be a stretch but it is lovely and overlooks the formal sunken gardens.

Another kitchen make-over is slatted for later this year. Can’t wait!

I have been under the weather but hope to make the rounds of site inspections this week.  Stay tuned for exciting developments.

And thank You Lord for beautiful spring weather. It does a body good.

  • Oh my goodness Cindy it doesn’t look like the same place. You are truly a miracle worker! My favorite are the hanging light fixtures. Fabulous!
