Kitchen the heart of a home

For those who read my blog regularly, you know from the "kitchen progress" post  that I was helping to update a kitchen in a beautiful old colonial.  Lots of decisions to be made when you update an older colonial, with beautiful original woodwork.  It was a toss between, do we make it brighter with painting the wood or work with the original wood. 

We then decided to determine the color of the cabinets and then back track. Clearly not a "white" or "wood" kitchen client!  This is a sage green color cabinets which looks amazing. 

This kitchen is truly the heart of this home.  The owners receive their guests with open arms and guests never leave without eating right in this kitchen.  So who better deserves a beautiful kitchen to cook, enjoy and share the beauty. 

Their grand daughter Mia's painting was the main focus of this kitchen and jumping off point for the accent colors.


Reflection through the mirror.



We wanted crystal and brass handles to add to the interest. The crystal sparkles for sunlight and in the nights for the lights.

Here are some before and after photos.

A small powder room got a facelift as well.
