A client's completed kitchen

I know you all begged for more shots of completed projects and that is what you all are getting. I tell ya. This client of mine can execute a plan like you would not believe, which is important in an e-design project. I could not be more obsessed with the after product if I tried. I mean can we agree on that?
So here is what we started with. We ended up swapping out the roman shade for a brighter and more punchy combo, which my client made on her own. I wouldn't lie to you. 
And here is what we ended up with. 












I mean what do we think, loves? I think she could not have pulled things together better if she tried. Totally an inspirational kitchen to cook and gather in. As a disclaimer, there were a lot of blood sweat and tears in the making of that roman shade but looking at the after, it was so worth it.

  3. I adore that window valance, just saying. I think that the color in the kitchen is unexpected, so it really works. I agree with Sam! Perfect mixing of elements.

  5. I'm far from an expert, but I am a fan of the shade and the industrial chairs. Also, the window valance seems to really open the room. First time visiting!

  8. Great job! Two questions - 1) Where are those pendant lights from? And 2) I adore that print of the ginger jar on the backsplash! So cute! Cheers! Ana @threegoodgrapes.blogspot.com

  9. Dying to know how your client got the print of the ginger jar to hand on a tiled wall!

  14. Ahhh, love, love, love everything about it! This kitchen is actually a very good friend of mine from college and I can personally attest to the trouble that roman shade gave her. Her sweat and tears were certainly worth it though.. so gorgeous!

  15. What a gorgeous space! Of course I love that roman shade, but for some reason I am kind of obsessed with the simple white panels in there! Just the right amount of softness, great job!!! On another note, I think we may have some mutual friends--I used to live in Richmond. Do you know Jennifer Walker? She introduced me to your blog and here's another funny connection--one time you featured a dining room tour of another Richmond blogger (Richmond Thrifter I think?) and get this: her bamboo dining chairs originally belonged to me :) Well, sort of. I bought them off CL, Jennifer Walker bought them from me, and then your friend bought them from Jennifer. Ah, it all comes back to Craigslist, right?! have a great day!

  18. This is lovely and you did a beautiful job. Love the mix of traditional with more industrial pieces and also the contrast between the darker cabinets and the lighter finishes in the room. I am really digging all the chairs and the roman shade too. xxoo
