Budget Friendly Kitchen Update!

Kitchen renovations can be done on a budget and achieve an overall new and fresh vibe! I worked on updating this kitchen on a small budget of $3500. The decision was made to purchase a mix of used and new appliances, removing some and painting the existing cabinets, tile back splash, honed marble counter tops, undermount sink, faucet and new door with trim and paint! We had custom end panels built and new crown molding installed to create a more custom look and to have the refrigerator have that built in look. We chose Wetstone Gray by Martha Stewart for the lower cabinets and Cabinetcoat White for the upper cabinets. I am pretty happy with end result and feels like a brand new kitchen! Sorry I only have a couple of photos below...

Office Reveal Today!

Today I am sharing a recent office design that is now complete! It was such a fun project to work on and we could not be happier with the results! My initial design plan suggested this soft aqua grass cloth which was initially resisted by my client because it not a color she has been drawn to in the past. But after further discussion and visiting additional options, she agreed to go with the my original suggestion. This is a common series of discussions when working with clients and it is such an enjoyable aspect of interior design.

We started actually with the amazing desk found on One King Lane. We had to snap up the desk before it was sold out and we used it as the basis of the design plan. The plan included the beautiful built-ins, raised paneling and window seat which incorporates functional file drawers and extra storage built and installed by my hubby Adam Briant of Briant General Contracting. After all, this is  an office that needs to be practical but beautiful as well!

Hope you love these after shots as much as we do!

Have a wonderful week and thanks for reading!
