KITCHEN REMODEL {recycled}

Designing a kitchen is like putting together a puzzle, but unlike a puzzle, there is not just one way to go about fitting the pieces together (which is why I love the challenge). Each space may hold the same number of pieces, but depending on how one uses the space, it could look and function very differently.


With that being said, I was put to the challenge last summer when a couple walked into the showroom and asked if they could buy one of our kitchen displays. It was our oldest display and we thought it would be a good time to update that part of the showroom. Instead of having the freedom to design from scratch to make the layout work, I had to take the cabinets from the showroom display and reconfigure them so they would fit into a completely different space...so let's see how it all came together.

The homeowner's NEW KITCHEN!


 







This framed photograph is the door knob from their home in New York City, and will also be the front cover to a book written by the homeowner (with some graphics done by yours truly!) due out in April. 



I had the pleasure of joining them for dinner in their cozy home in January, and it was great to see how happy they were in their new space.
