Redesigned Online: This Old House Magazine Feature

A longtime blog follower and fellow lover of vintage 
requested a little help with her kitchen remodel.
Amber and I worked on some small items in the past
but the kitchen was a pretty big design challenge.  

I have been doing e-design for a while 
and this was the perfect project since we live over 100 miles apart.

 Our finished project was featured in This Old House magazine June 2015

Amber is very creative and was able to manage her subcontractors and control her budget which is critical to a great outcome using e-design as a roadmap for a remodel.
 The "before" kitchen was pretty dark 
and there was so much brown it sort of sucked the energy out of the room.  

The layout is open to the family room, which is wonderful
and the updated kitchen brought new life into the adjoining spaces as well.

 The entire bank of upper cabinets over the cooktop was removed and the island was reworked to add a cookbook and display niche.  

The pendant light locations were moved and a few of the recessed can lights
reconfigured to make more sense 

The cabinet doors were replaced with a more current shaker style front and the refrigerator was replaced with a model that would accommodate painted panels for a built in look

New tile and countertops were also a key part of the remodel

My approach to e-design starts with the client receiving a packet PRIOR to payment.  It explains the process, the fees and exactly what you will receive to create/update/redesign your space.  
I don't use questioneers and prefer one or two conference calls with clients prior to starting.
Pinterest boards for every client has been a huge help as well!






more on that later.... on to the great kitchen!

Ambers design was inspired by some bright and fresh design elements

jadeite green 
soft coral 
copper
wicker 
vintage
 reclaimed wood

The copper came into play
because Amber had purchased 
a wonderful custom copper range hood on Craig's list 

In anticipation of her kitchen remodel 
Amber also purchased the large verdigris pendants 
and the drawer pulls, all at reduced prices.  She wanted these to be part of the design, which was pretty easy.  The bigger concern I had was the hood because it was such a strong element.

And guess what else she found?  

Not one but TWO Shaws sinks on Craigs list

Can you believe it!!!!

Here is Ambers new kitchen!
So fun and bright

 The copper hood is such a great element in this kitchen and now the dark floors add the perfect contrast to the bright white cabinets
 A new faucet set in copper with the Craig's list Shaws sink
 The counter tops are marble.  
Amber really shopped for the right stone, at the right price 
because it was such a huge part of the budget
The new refrigerator

 The open shelving with reclaimed wood is beautiful and so fun to style with 
 bright dishes and vintage finds.  

I received quite a few emails about the brackets 
which were purchased here

Traditional subway tile with a nice clean beveled edge looks much cleaner and current.
 Amber found a great source for the reclaimed wood in her local area and it was cut to her specifications for the open shelving
 Below is the cook book niche at the end of the island.  

All of the small details really add up to a wonderful bright space.  
Are you inspired?  I am!



Thank you Amber
