Take a Peek at Our Newly Reworked Kitchen

So lots of you will have been eagerly ready to see what our reworked kitchen seems like and right this moment I’m so excited to share some pictures of the house with you!

This kitchen is my favourite factor I’ve ever designed and in addition probably the most profitable design in my view. I’ll share a bit about why that’s beneath. It has been an extended and sluggish course of to get right here—balancing our price range, logistics, and what was life like for this house alongside the best way—and I’m so comfortable to be again in our kitchen once more.

For reference, right here’s a take a look at a few the earlier than pictures…

These are a couple of of the important thing design selections we made on this house…

Balanced conventional and trendy parts

We labored on including particulars that assist join the design of the kitchen with the standard design of the remainder of the home and that assist stability among the trendy parts with extra ornate touches (i.e., the fashionable nature of the wooden paneling alongside the ornateness of the marble flooring). The whole design was an train in balancing these two parts. 

We additionally thought of sturdiness in each factor we added to this house. This kitchen was designed, at the start, to make issues in and to use. Whereas most of the finishings and merchandise are high-end, nothing is simply too treasured, and most of the supplies (e.g., marble flooring, marble counter tops, and lacquered brass cabinets) are meant to climate superbly over time.

Added texture and colour

We added various textures (e.g., marble flooring and lacquered brass cabinets) and colours to create an ambiance that has the heat you’d discover at a restaurant or a lodge however with the intimacy of a house kitchen. All through the design course of, I mirrored on completely different locations I’ve been that used distinctive textures and colours to create a way of heat of their interiors—a lodge we stayed at whereas visiting Jackson Gap and a boutique lodge I liked in Paris, to call a couple of. I infused bits and items of design inspiration I’ve picked up alongside the best way on this kitchen.

Labored with the present oak paneling

The sensation of heat additionally comes from what was already right here—the oak paneling. I bear in mind wanting on the paneling at first and solely fascinated about how yellow it was, however now that I see it within the completed house, it’s clear that the tone of the paneling actually makes the extra conventional design parts pop. By way of this course of, I’ve realized you possibly can change the best way you concentrate on design parts over time, and typically designing inside current constraints can truly be actually helpful.

Your house is yours to design. Why not take some dangers within the course of?

The significance of taking design dangers is likely one of the greatest classes I discovered by way of this course of. 

I feel typically individuals (myself included!) want encouragement on the subject of making selections for decor which may not be really easy to visualise on the onset. In the end, when you’re fascinated with a design thought, it’s value exploring it additional. If you happen to’re referred to as to one thing, that’s sufficient of a motive to strive, whether or not in a giant or small manner.

Right here’s an instance on a small scale: I’ve all the time been drawn to yellow decor parts however I didn’t know if they might work throughout the design of this kitchen. I attempted out a few lemon-colored decor items and, a lot to my delight, they appear so good. I’m keen to incorporate a bit extra yellow decor sprinkled all through this house.

It’s in the end about trial and error, however typically people are so hesitant to strive they by no means know what might have been.

Keep tuned for the total kitchen reveal…

We aren’t carried out revealing the method of this kitchen transform and that’s for good motive! You could have seen bits and items of filming happening in our dwelling over the previous couple of months, and I’m so excited to lastly share that we participated in a collection referred to as Design Minded with Vox and KitchenAid!
