My Remodeling Goal
The goal was to make the kitchen reflect our personal style, rather than that of the builder. The kitchen and dining area are open to each other. So colors were pulled from the favorite dining room rug, we installed a combination of saffron-colored painted and glazed cabinets and garnet-stained alder cabinets. Plus a hand-glazed tile counter and backsplash in shades of khaki, honey, and deep red, and the island got a stunning, character-filled slab of typhoon green granite.
Tips and Advice from My Remodeling Experience
Start with a favorite piece to serve as the focal point of a design. In our case, it was a favorite rug that now sings with all the other finishes in the kitchen/dining space.
