Lighter, Brighter Kitchen Makeover

Client Name: Paris
Work Description: Kitchen Mini Makeover

Work Information:

I’m a big fan of dark and contrasting colors so when we moved into our home, 16 years ago, I opted for a dark Blue Pearl granite tiled backsplash and island top. I loved the Blue Pearl, but over time I realized the house was dark and the tile made it feel even darker to me. I felt it was time for a mini renovation in our kitchen.

What changed: the backsplash, island, and island lighting.

-Out with the Blue Pearl backsplash and in with a lighter, brighter Travertine rhombus tile-turned sideways- backsplash with glass tile inserts.

-My dad made a base cabinet to extend the island– it now supports a gorgeous 8′ marble slab. I painted the island base cabinets a solid creamy white, and added modern glass knobs.

-Billy, my husband, removed the island light fixture and installed three cool Mica and Glass tile pendent lights (which I won from Lamps Plus in a trade show Instagram contest) over the island for me.

Oh, I also designed and installed custom window treatments to finish the room.

Sometimes you don’t have to gut a room to change it. Sometimes a mini makeover is all you need– that’s all I needed.
