A lot can change in a few weeks! The before photo above shows the dramatic transformation to the kitchen photo below. While still in the middle of construction, the final results are becoming clear. When it came time to select the paint colors, we looked for inspiration from the homeowner’s art collection. Her numerous and colorful pieces would really pop on a white canvas and provide direction for accents.
My favorite part of the kitchen renovation is when the backsplash tile is installed. Not only does this step signal the imminent completion, it often ties the whole design together.
It can be sleek and clean or multi-color and varied, the tile adds a unique touch. Often it is the hardest to select because there are so many great options. Materials range from glass to metal and clay. Shapes can be small square or round mosaics or large rectangles, hexagons or circles. Surfaces come in matte, shiny, smooth or textured.
In this kitchen, the goal was to create an light, airy and calming space, in a classic modern style. A monochromatic color scheme of white, cream, champagne and taupe was chosen to accomplish this goal. A ceramic subway tile from Mission Stone and Tile features a raised geometric design, adds a timeless element with a modern twist.
The walls have been painted and the space feels suddenly light and airy! The tile will be grouted, the pendants will be hung and the vent hood and microwave will be installed this week. Almost there!
