|Here's a home that I spent time in when I was younger, it hasn't changed a bit. |
Close friends used to live here and I spent my fair share of time hanging out in Waterford.
|The Old School staircase. I was enchanted by the worn stair treads carved out by years of footsteps.|
|A sunny yellow door says come on in, what a cheerful welcome.|
|An unexpected spot for a miniature pumpkin, but I love the contrast of texture and color|
|Looks like snow birds sunning on a hot tin roof|
|A quaint front porch, complete with the light blue ceiling|
|Autumn colors abound!|
|I just love this historic home and it's rustic grace|
|I took home a running rabbit cookie cutter|
|The "Before" |
This is a very nice kitchen, but my clients, as you will recall, like light - lots of it - and this kitchen is lacking a window, so this time, even though the finishes will be very similar to those used for the kitchen renovation just 10 short months ago, we'll go just a little lighter and open it up.
|and it's out of there...|
|Demo has begun!!|
|Already making progress, the new island is going in! |
We decided to go with one large flat surface rather than tier it.
- which offers much more work space and keeps kitchen feeling open.
|Extra large drawers, left and right of the range, will provide lots of room for the homeowners array of pots and pans.|
One of the beautiful features when doing custom - bigger drawers!! These are 45" wide.
|Viola - we're done - how's that for the magic of editting!|
The new island, all on one level (no tiering) providing adequate prep space and opening up to the adjacent dining room.
I tweaked my color choices for the cabinetry as well. This time I used "Aesthetic White", Sherwin Williams, for my perimeter cabinets and "Smokehouse", also from Sherwin Williams for the island.
|The granite choice this time was softer and didn't have the veining as in the White Fantasy used last time. |
This time I chose Ivory White, also known by Kashmir White.
|And once again, we wanted a darker, richer floor - so we changed the floors. Since this is a condo, we couldn't use a solid hardwood (which would need to be nailed down), but still wanted the look and feel of natural wood, making the choice of walnut engineered flooring (which could be glued) a perfect compromise.|
No room this time for two SubZeros, so we decided to buy one and make a statement - this time a 48"!
|I was even able to locate the same pendant lights as last time. |
Down to the very last details, my clients feel right at home.
|I did decide to mix things up a little and chose a different backsplash choice - this is a 6" x 12" glass tile with a stone herringbone inset. It's a perfect compliment to the granite - simple and stunning.|
