Beautiful Kitchen Transformation

January 1, 2015

Happy New Year everyone! I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2015!

I wanted to share with you an online kitchen redesign I have been working on. I have been working with Jeff for a few months. He sent me photos and asked for ideas to update and refresh his kitchen without taking out the existing oak cabinets.

Since his oak cabinets are so bossy, we had to address them first and find the right paint color. I gave Jeff a few wall color options that would work well and he decided on Benjamin Moore Agave AF-420. This paint color works beautifully with oak cabinets:

After Painting:

I love how Agave looks with the white trim also:


After we selected the paint color, I helped him choose his new countertops and backsplash:

I love the artwork he choose for the room and it gave us our beautiful green and blue color palette:

I sent him ideas with photos and links to products I knew would work well. He would choose the items he liked best that fit his budget and style.

We picked out lighting, rugs and window treatments and other accessories. Here is the design board I put together for him:

Doesn’t it look great? (He is changing the rug to a larger size.)

He loves it! I think it came out beautifully. So happy. We are still working on little details which I will share another day.

Happy New Year My Friends!

  1. I need to find wall color in my living room. I have a tan now, not bright light, to it appears really grungy to me. I have a huge entertainment center (Sunny Designs, Sadona collection), along with a matching coffee table that is oak with inlaid slate, brown sofa and chair w/ottoman. My breakfast nook rolls around off the LR so it can bee seen also, so need to coordinate the color somehow. I would love something somewhat fresh looking that will lighten up the room without going to white. I also seem to like the country style along with a little rustic. Can you check out the furniture collection and help me.

  2. Kelly I need help picking a paint color for a oak kitchen cabinet with a orang tint, my counter top is dark blue I have black appliance. And the flooring has colors of cream ivory and bluefish gray.. Please help!!!
