Light and Airy Kitchen Reno

I LOVE a good Kitchen Reno. 
AFTER
I LOVE a good Kitchen Reno.  Especially when you are dealing with a VERY old layout!  In today's day and age - Open floor plans are very popular ,  especially in the kitchen and dining areas.  They are functional , inviting and they let light flow from room to room.  As you can see in this space below (in the before image) the Kitchen was very Dark and
Dated.

PROGRESS : DEMOLITION
BEFORE
Making sure all is correct!
This new kitchen is timeless,  Light and airy.  Simple and Classic , with a surprise pop of color at the end of the kitchen .  This Rust Orange wainscot adds warmth to an otherwise cooler pallet.  It is important to balance out the space with Cool tones and warm tones.  
AFTER
NEW Powder Room



This Newly added powder bathroom would NOT be the same had we NOT done the Rust Orange wainscot.  Although it is small it adds depth and texture to the space.  Do not be afraid to add wainscot to small spaces, NO it will NOT look too small, it will make the space SO much more interesting.

A YEAR in The Life of an Interior Designer -reflection on 2013

Take a peek into my interior design adventures of 2013... It was an incredible Year filled with great moments.  I traveled a lot and met a lot of wonderful people.  I am so grateful to everyone in this book and others who I don't have pictures of , who made such an impact on my life this past year.   I put this album together for me as a keepsake but then I thought... why not share it.  So here it is .
