Most Marvelous Moya
When I first saw these submissions from Moya, I literally gasped out loud, then let loose a deep longing sigh. All kinds of guttural noises were happening up in here.
 I just absolutely love her sense of style, and even asked her if she could download me a copy and insert it into my brain.
 The sofa was a handed down piece, very sturdy and well made, but in need of a fresh look. She chose to have it redone in a navy velvet with contrasting piping. It’s a very cool, very subtle nautical look.
Secondly, observe her fantastic kitchen redo. If I was scouring the real estate listings and came across that galley kitchen in the before pic, it would have been a deal breaker. Compare that to the after picture, and I’d be paying them to let me live there!
 Check out the sofa redo on her site DIY with ADD HERE, and the kitchen redo HERE. Thanks Moya!

    I had seen her kitchen before, but never that sofa.

    OH. MY. WORD.

    It’s fantastic.

    Oh my! You could barely see the brick in the kitchen before the makeover. Just pefect :0)

    WOW. Love the sofa and love the galley kitchen. It looks like honed granite? I’ll head over to her site and see. I would love to use it in our kitchen.

    Have I seen this kitchen before/after elsewhere? It’s still amazing. Love galley kitchens!

    The sofa looks SO much more inviting now. 🙂

    White paint and galley kitchens are made for each other. I love that she switched her old kitchen door for one with a full glass insert. That’s next on my list of to-do items in my kitchen, too! Any time you can let more natural light into a space, it’s a win. 🙂
