Black and White
For you loyal readers out there, you’re well aware at this point that Kate has had her baby, Josephine Audrey Belchers. Too cute for words! So while Kate is enjoying motherhood, I’ll be taking over as guest blogger for awhile, today being my official debut. I wanted to start off with a classic. A client has recently moved into a beautiful old home but its in much need of some TLC. Since the whole house will eventually be renovated, they decided to start with the kitchen because that’s where everyone spends the most time anyway. The existing kitchen has some unnecessary walls and the cabinets and conter tops are a little outdated, but amazing potential. Here is the existing kitchen. As you can see, there is room for a much bigger and brighter kitchen with a very open floor plan. When discussing style and color, we all agreed a classic black and white kitchen would be the way to go. Here is what we have in mind as far as layout. We’re going to knock down the wall separating the kitchen from the rest of the room, creating a more open space like the kitchen pictured above and add counter seating and an island. Since there is nothing a fresh coat of white paint can’t fix, we decided to go with a black and white color scheme for the new kitchen. Aren’t they the greatest? The window above the sink and main counter area opens up to a huge deck with great sun exposure, so we’re replacing the current window with a shutter style window and installing a counter outside creating an indoor/outdoor feel.
Wouldn’t it be great for entertaining in the summertime? I’ll make sure to keep you updated on the transformation.
