A Plan for a Kitchen Renovation

Good AM my loves. Friday eve. Just the way I like it. How is it that short weeks feel longer than normal weeks? It is beyond me. The math doesn't add up, but what are you gonna do? Anyway. Today I have the plans for one of my client's kitchens that seriously is going to be to die for. My aim was to create a rustic, monochromatic space with (surprise) a pop of color. The goal was to basically keep everything such as granite, cabinets and stone (the permanent stuff) in place. This kitchen just needed a minor face lift. And a face lift she shall get. 
Here are the before pictures of her space so you can have an idea what we're working with here. Lots of potential. Lots.
 I spy the antelope runner I am dreaming of on those stairs. I am so jelly. 

Space is going to be oozing with style. I cannot wait to see the finished product here. She is fabulous so I know the end result will be nothing short of that. What do we think? Loves!

  14. This is a great idea! I’m sure your client was pleased when you presented it. The key to a rustic monochromatic kitchen design really lies with the color palette. Why don’t you try experimenting on neutral colors? Good luck, Lindsay!
