COLONIAL HOUSE TOUR PART 4: KITCHEN

KITCHEN

To be perfectly honest my design role in this kitchen and dining nook was not a huge one. That's because one of the dream aspects of this project was that the entire house had already been renovated by a previous owner who actually had taste and chose lovely finishes throughout.  This is so rare! Usually a big chunk of budget has to be allocated to renovating outdated rooms, or worse yet, re-doing someone else's recent but horribly ugly reno.  

So this beautifully simple and tasteful kitchen with its subway tiles, custom cabinetry, huge counters and farmhouse sink?....Yeah that was all there when I got there.   

ROSA BELTRAN DESIGN 

What I can take some credit for is the kitchen eating nook, and how it's tied in with the kitchen by way of the island stools.  Both areas already had some beautiful and classic seating going on, so it made the most sense to re-furbish and reuse what we had.  

Thonet's iconic mid-century bentwood stools (above) at the kitchen island got a coat of soft mint (Ben Moore's "Kittery Point Green), and the timeless yet modern Windsor style chairs around a marble Saarinen-style tulip table went from black to white and had their feet "dipped" in the same mint color.  I wrote about DIY dipped furniture here.

Doesn't the switch to white chairs and white table base have such a huge impact on brightening up the space?  The walls went from dusty blue to a very pale grey (Ben Moore's "Silver Satin.")  I often use shades of light grey or whites with grey undertones in the homes I design....it just works well with pretty much anything else you bring in.

Those mint green stools brought just the right touch of color to the kitchen, don't you think?  I love the always-classic white cabinet/black counter combo, but the black stools were falling very flat in there!

The lighting above the island was already in place, but we did add a beautiful glass pendant above the tulip table.  The clear glass globe carries much less visual weight than the old pendant did so it really opens up the space and bounces the light (both natural and electric) around.

I hope you're enjoying touring this house as much as I enjoyed working on it.  We'll continue this week with a couple more lovely spaces, and then the living room grand finale that you won't want to miss!

It looks great! Funny to see how such small details can totally change and brighten up a kitchen. That really tells that you have a great sense for interior, because you can improve a place greatly by implementing only minor changes.
