I love a sparkly new kitchen makeover, and this one certainly sparkles! But before we get to that, can we talk about this funky before? The previous owners of Vel’s home were big fans of modern design, but mostly brown. Brown walls, brown cabinets, brown floors, brown counters, lots of brown. And they were also probably big fans of square-dancing, because that teensy island was situated nearly seven feet away from the rest of the kitchen. That’s a wide open space! Great for do-si-dos, not so great for transporting a boiling pot of pasta from the stovetop to the sink.
But that was then, and this is now, and the now is fantastic! So much more usable and lovely, and about 10x as much storage too. Check it all out on Vel’s blog Life & Home at 2102.
I love how Vel transformed all the wasted space above the cabinets, that’s my favorite trick for making a kitchen seem much bigger. And can you see the sparkly backsplash? In. Love.
I love this great little office nook too. Check out her blog for a tour of the whole room, there’s so much more to see!
