A couple of weeks ago we featured a HOT fireplace. Today we are featuring the kitchen of the same home. This home is a gorgeous mid-century 1950s ranch that was expanded and completely renovated about 10 years ago. It didn’t need a full renovation but just a little current day sparkle. (see the before photos including my hubby Scott) The family that lives here is very active with three children so their home needed to reflect a casual sophistication that represents the lifestyle they live.
To do this, we gutted the back splash and replaced it with a more contrasting Ann Sacks tile by Kelly Wearstler. This added movement and dimension to the room and played nicely against the antique white cabinets. Design Tip: Replacing a backsplash is often the easiest way to update a kitchen.
The island was also repainted from a dark gray to a rich deep blue by Benjamin Moore. The antique light fixture was updated with 2 smaller pendants in a brushed gold to bring warmth to the space. And the homeowner added a fun custom rug by FLOR to bring additional color into the room.
The kitchen is now the heart of the home with a design to match. And we hope this favorite family of ours enjoys it for years to come!
