a fresh look..

Posted September 05, 2012 by Christina


When I first came across this home it was the kitchen that caught my eye, but I love fresh use of purple with the grey.  I had two cabinets similar to these built on either side of my fireplace and I am trying to figure out which paint colors I want to use.  Do I go grey to match the kitchen island and then a slightly lighter or darker shade of the same for the walls?  Or do I use a creamy white as the backdrop?

The other think I love about this space is the mix- lately I have been loving the mix of modern in with a more relaxed country vibe.  What do you think?

Yes, you are right: a touch of modern with relaxed country is lovely. Wonderful rooms, especially the kitchen. I love the double lanterns, brick flooring, and the lucite chairs…..nice and unexpected :)

Very cool and interesting. Love the lucite vs the brick.

I love these room, exactly my style! They’re beautiful, simple but I the pops of soft colors against the neutrals really make it unique. The living room transitions perfectly into the kitchen!!

Oh my gosh…so many beautiful things to love about this home. I adore the light bulb sculpture on the coffee table, the mirror over the fireplace, that sofa and that hairy pouf. I’d live in this space any day. Thanks for sharing.
