Back home today in Newport and already knee deep into another project. I have so many things going on right now I feel a little dizzy!
We are doing some construction to fix a structural defect in the house we own and while we were doing that we also thought it might be a good time to give the kitchen a face lift. Nothing is ever an easy fix and we've already run into a bunch of little problems but there is always Plan B. I'm not sure what Plan B is yet but I'll probably find out really soon.
The highlight of my day today was the uncrating of my new Italian free standing range form Bertazonni. The company has been making stoves in the Emilia-Romagna region near Parma Italy since 1892 and they have just recently started to become available in the US. This region of Italy is really the heart of the food world and the stoves are a work horse for the home cook as well as the professional chef.
The stove comes in quite a few colors including stainless, this shiny black and bright red which would be really fun to do with stainless counter tops. I love the logo at the base with the wings.
Heres a sneak peek at the reno and my new Italian love. The paint on these is like automobile paint, really shiny and deep looking. The knobs are really interesting as well.
We are pulling out the stone on this center island and replacing it with black absolute granite which should really add some bling to this little kitchen space.
Stay tuned for more demo and the finished project!
Have a great week~*~kelley
