Hi All! How was your weekend? I had a lovely time- did a wee bit of retail therapy, attended a charity ball and celebrated my grandparents’ 70th (!) wedding anniversary. Oh and I scored a fantastic piece of art from my ever stylish Nana. Hope to be showing that off later in the week.
But now I’m looking to the week ahead- its a big one. We are trying to wrap up a several design projects and starting demo on a new kitchen today. I love demo day! We designed this particular kitchen to be clean and classic. White cabinets are topped with black quartz counters and white subway tile. The owners didn’t want to do anything too trendy that they would tire of in 10 years. Still, there was a concern that the space would be a little bit too plain. Where is the pizzazz?
The great thing about a white kitchen is it’s blank slate. You can add your own personality through roman shades, lighting, rugs, hardware, seating, accessories, etc. Here is the kitchen as planned, with minimum embellishment….
But if you read this blog, you know that personally, I think more embellishment is more better. In a space like this, with so few blank walls, what I would really love to do would be to add wallpaper.
I’d love a punchy floral to enliven and soften the space…
So many ways to add your own personal touch! Here are some real-life kitchens with wallpaper….
Doesn’t a small dose of wallpaper make a big impact in a room? I like it a lot in a kitchen, because it doesn’t need to overwhelm the space. And it’s a minimal commitment. Much easier to change out your paper than to do full fledged kitchen renovation.
