Room Rx: Timeless Kitchen update

Several weeks ago I shared a bit here about a kitchen project I am working on and today I want to give you another little peak at the progress.  The cabinets were delivered last week and they are just gorgeous. Built by Amish cabinet makers in a workshop about an hour and a half north of Madison, the custom cabinets are beautifully finished and my design plans were well executed. In this kitchen, since it now opens up to the dining room, we are mixing finishes with the perimeter in a dark stained, clear Alder and the dining room banquette and island in a creamy white.

I am especially excited about how the small island turned out, exactly like I drew it...!

The wood floors have all been refinished and create a nice contrast to the dark cabinets and white banquette and towers.  Sherwin Williams Silvermist on the walls provides a fresh background color that works well with the SW Ancestral Gold in the living room, now opening up to this area.

My client and I have continued to tweak things and I found the perfect accent fabric to use for pillows on the banquette and to update the cornice board window treatments, Flaunt in stone by Stout  Fabrics. It's hard to tell on the screen here, but the colors are perfect, picking up the blue-green of the walls and cushion fabric as well as the gold color from the living room and the dark brown of the cabinets.

Today the counters are being measured for and the cabinet install will continue.  Next up, hardware and back splash. Stay tuned as this kitchen will be done in the next few weeks and I'll give you the full reveal! 

This week is a short school week with no school Thursday and Friday, so we've got a little road trip planned to Milwaukee with kids. Laverne & Shirley, here we come!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design
If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Design Concept Board or a complete Room Rx.

You (and your client) must be thrilled at how this is shaping up. I love the wall color that was chosen and the mix of wood and white for the island and banquette is really really nice. I'm blocked from that first fabric so I'll have to check it out at home. Looking great Cathy!

Wow, this is looking fantastic! I LOVE the island, and the wall color. Excited to see the final product :)

Beautiful, Cathy!! Loove that wall color. So neat that you got to design an island - the Amish wood workers are really talented (I'm from PA)! That banquette with the side towers is going to be such a cool little area:)

So glad you like the new MBM idea! And thanks for being willing to talk it up - you are awesome, thanks so much for all of your support:)

Love the whole Shaker thing, and the colors make everything look so clean and elegant. And that's with the dust and worker guy in the background--imagine how awesome it'll be when it's done! Excited for the Big Reveal!!
