It's hard to do kitchens for other people and not reflect upon your own.
This is my kitchen....Country French mode....time warp!
I've enjoyed my kitchen for the last 8 years. I've loved Country French most of my life....so did my mom.
I love color....always will.
That's just not me anymore.
Designers, probably more than anyone else, fall in and out of love with design styles, and while I'm not "out of love" with Country French, I'm more "in love" with a clean and modern aesthetic.
It's not an easy leap from one design style to another....sigh....
I spent last weekend painting my open plan living area in this
Sherwin Williams "Macadamia"
And the trim in this...
Sherwin Williams "Dover White"
This looks really yellow here....think white!
Do you see my problem?
The paint colors throughout my house all had a warm golden base to them (think SW "Blonde"), and now I've changed the game. While "Macadamia" is a warm beige, it has alot of brown and gray in it.
Macadamia, cool and modern, and buttery yellow, distressed cabinets just can't live together any more.
And to complicate matters even further,all reds and golds are going by-by throughout the house, and I'm using these fabrics in orange and deep turquoise along with a good bit of black,white and some navy.

Can you say TOTAL REDO!!!!
All I really wanted to do was paint my bathroom,
my sink cabinet...way too much junk on the countertop...please forgive!
(Can you tell this was my "Artist's Boho Period"???)
I need your help.
I would never go about designing a client's home the way I've done mine.
Working off of a "whim" is not generally the progression I follow. And to complicate matters, I have no budget!!
I HAVE to paint my kitchen, cabinets and all.
I'm open for suggestions.
I like the dark base cabinets, and I like the light uppers'
Other than keeping my copper ceiling....which I love....
I'm open to change....guess you could tell that!
Colors are fair game.
