Kitchen remodel update

Well..... not a whole lot has happened with the kitchen! The delay is mostly due to City permits! So in the interim, I thought you'd like to see how the kitchen used to look:

And just look how it looks now:

I'm not a huge fan of demolition, but know it has to be done! Everything is dusty and messy.... so to make everything better it's always nice to look at what's to come. For instance, beautiful, clean white subway tiles:

We are also extending the kitchen so there's going to be room for a casual dining area. As the kitchen will be white cabinets with black countertops, I'm mixing it up with an industrial table - rough wood and wrought iron legs:

Then thinking of softening the table with a sofa - probably covered in a neutral fabric though:

Adding a few Louis inspired chairs:

And a fabulous industrial light fixture:


  1. Exciting! And I am dying over those settees. I always think it's so gracious to have upholstered furniture at the table...

  2. It's going to be lovely...can't wait to see!!

  3. Love the idea of the sofas at the table Val. It encourages long Sunday lunches with roast beef, a bottle of red and good friends:-). Fi
