Today’s last before & after features two amazing and drool-worthy kitchen makeovers. Both feature a lot of clean, bright, white and a pop of bright color for a bit of drama. I love them both and honestly, it would be hard to say no to either of these kitchens.
This amazing red-orange kitchen was designed by Cindy, an architect who runs the design firm Hello Kitchen (love the name!). Jennifer and Matt, her clients for this project, recently moved back to Austin and into this charming historic house, but were less than impressed by its cramped eighties-style kitchen. Cindy decided to open up the space to bring in more light and added vertical shelving for extra storage space. I love the bright persimmon hue and the warm wood shelving, and the view into the kitchen from the living room is so beautiful. You know a kitchen makeover is a success when all you want to do is stare at it from across the room. Lovely job, Cindy! – Kate

The second amazing kitchen makeover comes from Rebecca in Vermont. Working on a tight budget, Rebecca managed to completely overhaul the look and feel of her kitchen by adding a maple counter top and painting the cabinets a dramatic dark hue. The subtle shift of wall color from cream to bright white does a lot to lighten and brighten the space, and I love the small pops of bright blue and red from her ceramics and glassware, which are now displayed in gorgeously rustic open wall units. I’m impressed with how much she was able to alter the mood of the room for such a small expense, and I love clean minimalism of the end result. Great job, Rebecca!
