A Beautiful Kitchen and Family Room Makeover

I know I have been promising to share this amazing kitchen and family room reveal since Christmas time, so here it is finally and I think you'll agree it really did turn out beautifully!

We were lucky with this beautiful home as it had great bones already to work with. So we started with painting the walls a warm blue grey colour that would really make the white cabinets pop. We used hits of grey and black in the furniture and accessories as accent colours. Check out the old window frame turned into a clip board for photos, that we had Mango Reclaimed create this for us.  We also stained the butcher block island in warm rich tone to make it stand out against the lovely new countertops.

We added a white beveled edge subway tile and decided to add a marble mosaic herringbone feature wall behind the stove for some interest and drama. I  also added a new custom hood fan that not only looks beautiful but is also very functional as well. The countertops are made by LG and they are absolutely stunning, they have the look of a warm marble but are scratch and stain resistant perfect for a family five! One of the other show stoppers in this kitchen is the bridge faucet-it is simply amazing!

Lighting was also key in this home and we went for it! I fell in love with these lights the instant I saw them... I think they just tie everything together. We added antique brass pendants over the island and a smaller one over the kitchen sink. Over the family dining table we went rustic elegance and this understated chandlier just says it all. In the hallways we went for oversized pendants finished in  a detailed matte black. We also painted out the inside of the front door and the garden door a soft charcoal black.

I also had my client paint out her fireplace and some of her existing furniture with van gogh chalk based paint from Mango Reclaimed in Whitby. I think she did an amazing job and it really pulls the look together. We added custom draperies, new lamps, a rustic mirror over the fireplace and some custom throw pillows to tie it all together!

I hope you enjoyed this reveal as much as I enjoyed working on it and sharing it with you! As always I'd love to hear what you think so feel free to email us or comment on our blog.
