Around Christmas, I snuck in a peek-a-boo picture of our kitchen. I started a rippling effect of eager friends wanting to see our newly remodeled kitchen. Fair enough given that I could hardly keep the reveal to myself too. But before I jump into the finished project, take a good look at the old kitchen I was working with:“Potential” is what came to mind when we first saw this kitchen. It’s large, open, and needed some TLC from this creative gal. I immediately knew there was a big design miss with connecting the cape cod exterior to the interior. As the homeowner, I’d pull it all together. I’ve mentioned on multiple occasions my love for cape cod style homes (those cedar shingles are everything to me); that finding such a home with an interior that needed updating, was a project worth taking on. After all, this home immediately pulled on my heart strings; a clear sign that this house was the one. Outdated and all.
Fast forward, here’s our newly remodeled kitchen:I’m a huge fan of a blue and white color scheme. It’s both traditional in style and reads coastal through and through. So when I wanted to continue the color wave into the kitchen, we went full-force and had our lower cabinets painted navy. Additionally, we incorporated gold fixtures for that extra bit of pop. Oh, and those extra tall doors you see, that’s my pantry complete with an appliance shelf. I’m able to store all my Costco treasures and have all my appliances plugged in and ready for use . Then with a simple close of the doors, the kitchen is neatly put away. That’s HUGE in my book. Having zero clutter on my counters and yet my Keurig ready and waiting is just what this housewife needs. The hubby struck gold coming up with that idea.
