Before & After - NHD Kitchen Renovation

        Our Kitchen Renovation has been done for over a year!  But I wanted to find a few more finshing touches before i considered it done.  Here is the Before...(side note - the kitchen was from the 90s/80s with bad wood finish, tile countertops, see thru cabinets and brick floors.)  Nothing that paint and a handyman from Craigslist cant transform...

We kept the bones of the kitchen and updated the rest.  The cabinets are the same, we just painted everything a bright white and added new cabinet doors and handles.  The floor is the same, just painted dark grey floor paint which help keep the lines of the brick floor without the bad color.  I love subway tile backsplash and my husband found a great dark grey color at Daltile. 
We added a new island since the kitchen was just a box rectangle before.  We had the island custom made for a side wine rack and spice drawers.  Knock off Bertoia stools were only $100 a pair from Home Decorators.

We added new appliances and my love of the kitchen, the stainless steel farmhouse sink.  I really wanted a white sink but have heard it is a nightmare to keep clean. 

 My favorite feature of the kitchen is the Italian Carrara Marble for the countertops and island.  Its hard to maintain but looks so pretty! 

Custom feeding stations for Charlie & Zoe. 

I had my furniture guy, Dwayne make custom feeding boxes for me.  Then i spray painted them grey to match the floor.  I ordered monogrammed laminate placemats from Mattie Luxe and topped off with Oscar de la Renta bowls from Target.  On clearance of course!

One of my favorite artists, Bernard Buffet.  This is one of my favorite pieces in the house.  His work is so haunting and sad.

Grey painted brick floors

I love love abstract artwork with color!  Le Moroccans by Matisse (oil replica)
Grey subway tile by Datile

Vintage Hollywood Regency Pottery at its best.  My cookie jar lion found on Ebay.

I love anything by Le Creuset.  But white ceramic canisters, LOVE!   Perfection! 

I still have a few finishing touches but really happy with the overall tranformation.  This proves that white and grey paint can cure almost anything!

I have been a fan of Julia at Gal Meets Glam, for a while.  What a nice surprise - she featured the Joie Necklace a few days ago.  Doesn't she have great taste?  Love it all!

Amazing finds at Wisteria...

Its been a long January and February!  But I am back and in decorating action.  I have been finding a few things for the guest bedroom and came across these amazing Moroccan tables from Wisteria!  whoo!  I have always wanted a side Moroccan table and these are the perfect size and colors.  They also have amazing mini tables, bamboo chair and well priced modern mirrors. I am impressed, Wisteria! See below for some images of Moroccan side tables as inspiration.
