Donna's kitchen was stuck in a time warp, and tragically, the most unattractive time period of all: the faux-wood-paneling-up-to-here-and-beyond period. A renovation was overdue, so she went even further back in time, to the cute and colorful 50's!
If I could, I would go even further back in time, to the Downton Abbey era where a kitchen was a room I never entered but existed somewhere on the lower floor of my castle and produced amazing meals and all I ever had to do was show up in a pretty dress. (Are you watching Downton Abbey? I'm hooooooooked!)
She found her 'Big Chill' reproduction refrigerator online, and the original 1950's Caloric gas range on ebay, after a two year search! I also love how she worked with the soffit, beadboard and crown moulding. I never knew soffits could look so swell!
