One Room Challenge {Petite Kitchen} Week 6 FINALE

Welcome to the  final week of the One Room Challenge!  If you have been following along from the beginning then you have seen me and  my father completely transform our client’s kitchen over the past 6 weeks.  If you are just tuning in today, you are in for a big treat because I’ll be sharing those requisite Before photos along with our super sparkly After shots courtesy of Courtney Apple.

Courtney was such a trooper and stopped by this Monday afternoon to photograph the kitchen.  We were literally cleaning up paint cans, fastening electrical plates and pulling up masonite (wood floor protection) right before she showed up.  We could not have timed this puppy any closer.  Truth be told, we aren’t completely done; the wood floors need their final (3rd) coat of finish and so we did not move the dining room furniture back into the space.  My clients have also not filled in the new cabinets with all of their kitchen goodies.  I brought over a few of my own stuff to do a little shelf styling.  Overall though, I think you’ll get a good sense of the new space.

{Need to Catch Up?}

WEEK 1 / WEEK 2 / WEEK 3 / WEEK 4 / WEEK 5

Before we renovated the kitchen it was a dark, cramped space.  At 8’7 by 14’8 not only was it not very functional to work in, it was impossible to photograph!  (Helllooo how can I show a proper Before and After if I can’t even photograph the room?)

View from the Dining Room Before

It took a little convincing, but our clients agreed to let us remove the wall between the kitchen and the dining room.

Now, with the wall gone, it is a completely different.  Open, bright, and incredibly inviting.  Actually words don’t do it justice,

without further ado, check out the space today…


Design Manifest Petite Kitchen Makeover

Hello kitchen of my dreams, welcome to my reality.

A key step in this transformation was tweaking the layout, which went far beyond removing a wall.

petite kitchen floor plan before and after

We moved the refrigerator off the right wall freeing up that space for a snack zone.  This is the spot for the microwave, toaster, coffee-maker.  I love placing them all here because they don’t take up valuable space on the prep counters.  Dishes, glasses and cutlery will also be stored in this area.

Above is the old wall and below is the new snack zone.

Courtney’s image (above) depicts the counter all clean and pretty.

I brought over my own coffee maker and toaster to show how it will look once my clients move in.

Yikes, her pictures are better!


Special planned details include custom cabinets with walnut interiors.

Helllllo Sexy surprise.

In the old kitchen the left side (dining wall) was pretty under-utilized.  There was one storage cabinet and a table that was too large for the room.

kitchen door and back wall- before

We removed the wall and added an island that houses the sink, dishwasher and pull-out trash & recycling bins.

The island cabinets and back door are both natural walnut.  This makes me happy.

Sink and faucets

Speaking of the island, I must mention the fabulous waterfall countertop!

Quartzite in all its glory baby.

I selected the part of the slab with the most movement to be on the side.

So it starts all colorful and busy and gradually becomes lighter on the countertop surface.

A snap I took…

My client still wanted a garden window to house a few plants.  We replaced the existing one with a taller unit (to make most of the wall height) and moved it over to make room for the pantry and refrigerator.

We added a quarzite counter to the garden window.  It matches the countertops and  is such a practical surface for plants.

While the old garden window had your typical colonial casing, we dropped the trim and did tile all the way up the wall.  It’s a much cleaner look and makes the area around the window seem larger.

To the left of the window is the refrigerator and pantry.  The refrigerator has white panels to help it blend in with the pantry.  Stainless would have felt so heavy in this small space!

To the right of the window is the range and hood.  Otherwise known as, My favorite part of the kitchen!  To further my mission of #minimizestainless I recommended my clients purchase a 30″ Viking range in black.  This isn’t your builder-grade black appliance, it is so luxe and fabulous.

And then there is the custom hood, which I sorta consider my baby.  I conceived the idea, sketched it up, chose and finishes and sent it off to my cabinet-maker, Christiana Cabinetry to turn it into a reality.  And they did a gorgeous job!  (They always do.)

Design Manifest Curved White Brass Hood with black viking range

If the hood is my baby than perhaps the tile is my lover.  We have a tumultuous affair, this tile and I.  Between missing colors, incorrect patterns and delays in production, I was pretty sure I wanted to break up with it before it was even delivered  But New Ravenna pulled it together and sent us some gorgeous tiles.  I have to give props to my dad and our carpenter Angelo for doing an excellent job setting the mosaic.  Plus a thank you to Angela at Devon Tile for laying out the pattern and determining the proportion of the color gradient.  Don’t you just love how the color get lighter as it goes up the wall?  I do.  Just enough color, but not too much.

 I love how the tile interplays with the “Aquias Blue” Quartzite.  Talk about soulmates.

PS- I would not recommend using cupcakes for staging in a kitchen because you just may end up eating ALL of them after the photo shoot.  Whoopsies.


Last but certainly not least is my successful “experiment” on the counter stools.  We took the Wayfair Otus Stool, which was originally stainless, and sent it to our powder coaters.  Powdercoating magnetically bonds the metal finish to the surface making it much more durable than a simple spray paint job.  It also looks about 100% nicer than spray paint- more like polished brass than paint.  I’m officiall obsessed.

I hope you enjoyed our little renovation.  I know my clients are beyond thrilled with the result.  They put complete trust in us and went with a bunch of my hairbrained ideas.  Dad and the team executed the design brilliantly.  Now it’s time for my clients to get cooking!  As for Dad and I, we are on to our next renovation.  We begin a new kitchen remodel on Monday.  No, we never do stop.  Yes, we do sleep.

ORC-Participant Fall 2014

  1. Lisa

    Amazing kitchen! Would you please share the color (and brand if possible) of powder coating used? There are hundreds of brass, brushed gold, satin gold, etc. Thanks.

    • Natalie

      Would love to know this too!

  2. Linda

    What a beautiful kitchen, showing high style in a small space. Wondering: what fiinsh in your Newport Brass instant hot best matched the Champagne Bronze of your Delta faucet?

  3. Jesyka

    I never thought anything would compete for the space that white carrara marble holds in my heart until now! WOW! I’ve never seen countertops like that before, and now I feel I MUST have it! I don’t know whether to kiss you or curse you! ~.^

  4. Dzung

    Hi! Can you please tell me what color the small instant hot faucet is in? LOVE the duo together. I’ve been looking for something like this for awhile… thanks!

  5. Yelda

    Talk about from drab to fab! This transformation was wowzers. Simply wow. You did an awesome job. Brass on white is my dream. And, the end result of this kitchen was just dreamy!

  6. Taylor

    Wow! This is beyond stunning! Whats funny is that so many of these ideas, if pitched to me, I would have been like HECK NO LADY, but seeing them all together is amazing. So cohesive, so beautiful. I’m not a huge fan of color (at all, seriously, bring on the white and gold!) but the blue in the tiles and even in the quartz blew me away. So much amazing inspiration here. Please come to florida and help me gut an 80s town home with an even tinier kitchen!

    anyway, AMAZING!

  7. Seeing before and after photos really leaves me in awe, especially when the turnout is as magnificent as this! The white and gold combination is definitely a winner!

  8. Alex

    I’m not a blogger, or a blog reader, but I’m in the middle of binge reading from your first post and have enjoyed the hell out of it. It’s been especially fun to see how you’re style has grown and, dare I say, matured… and I’m only on late 2012!
    Of course, today I realized that your posts don’t all show up on the first page. I have to click “older posts” (I thought those were ones I had already read) so I’m going to have to back track. Yeah, totally not a blog reader.

    Anyway, thank you for putting yourself and your company out there. Your dad, the crew, and you have provided a lot of enjoyment and food for thought for me.

    Whether accolades or criticism come your way, this has been one of the best design reads I’ve had in a while and has inspired me to take care of some projects that I’ve been putting off due to LACK of inspiration. TV has become a design wasteland, thank goodness there’re outlets that aren’t constrained by TV producers.

    • Naomi

      thanks, Alex!! I love the feedback and comments from a “non blog reader” 🙂

  9. Vickie

    Stunning transformation! Did you have the barstool legs powder coated or replated?

  10. E. Carven

    Beyond stunning! Would you mind sharing which finish you used for the pendants and the cabinet hardware? Thank you!

    • Naomi

      It’s polished brass.

      • E. Carven

        Thanks so much! Happy Thanksgiving!

      • Ashley


        After looking for gold and white stools for over 7 months, thanks to you I have finally chosen my kitchen stools. I AM OBSESSED WITH YOURS! I just bought the same stools from Wayfair and they came last week. Now I am getting them powder coated with the hope they will look exactly like yours. I told the company the color name that you shared but the Powder Coating Company said they have many different versions of “polished brass”. They asked for the coating brand and number of the color so they can match it up exactly. Do you know the Company and # for the color? I would love for them to turn out just like yours.

        Thank you!
        Happy New Year!

  11. Angela


    YAY! This looks amazing. I really love the layout, makes such a difference. Are your clients speechless?! They are so lucky to have this bright, functional, gorgeous kitchen.

    I know the backsplash was a lot if drama and hair pulling. I’m so glad your Dad put it in so perfectly, and I am SO HAPPY that we were able to get to you in time and it really looks stunning.
    I love your other choices- was never really a big fan of brass- until now. It’s perfect with the soft blues and white and ashy walnut.

    Great job….

  12. alexis

    i love every last detail! i am getting some chairs powder coated, would you mind sharing the color they used? thanks!

  13. Vel

    OMG Naomi, you are officially my official kitchen designer in my next house!!! I’m in love with every detail of this kitchen ! I even want to switch out all my cabinet hardware to gold!!! You are just genius and dad equally so when it comes to coming up with fabulous designs! Fabulous job!

  14. THOSE STOOLS! OMG! WOW! I’M LITERALLY FREAKING OUT OVER THEM (which is why I’m opting for all caps!) Thank you so much for sharing the source!

  15. Jessica

    Dying, dying for those barstools and tile! Love it!!

  16. Andrea

    HOLY SHIZ lady. Most dramatic before and after I’ve seen in the ORC. Brava!!

    And even though it’s not exactly my taste, your vision for this space was incredible! The mix of tiles, the color – it’s all fresh and not something we’ve all seen a hundred times.

    Must make your clients giddy every time they walk in there!! Well done!!

  17. It’s gorgeous! This might be my favorite room from the challenge. It’s such a huge transformation and every piece in the kitchen is amazing!

  18. Amy

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!! Quick question….do you have a source for the rug? What an amazing space!

  19. Naomi, how is it possible that this is the same kitchen. Unbelievable transformation in six weeks time – including a new layout, cabinetry, new everything. Love the finishes as always – that’s where you shine! Awesome job – again!


  20. tanis

    Amazing! We have a kitchen remodel in our future so I’ve just pinned the life out of this post! The details are all perfect and you are clearly a genius. Thanks for including all the super helpful links. The tiled backsplash is beyond. Congrats!

  21. Catherine

    Love this! What kind of budget do you need for this kind of transformation?

  22. Naomi, this kitchen is gorgeous…what a transformation!! The tile is stunning! The hood and stools kinda play off each other beautifully. Those pendant lights, the cabinet interiors…everything. But I adore the waterfall island. Love!

  23. Elizabeth B

    Just beautiful and such a workable layout. Please tell me where to purchase the garden window. It’s exactly what I’ve had in my head for two years. Wish you could come to Arkansas and install one like it for me. Congratulations on a great job!

  24. Vanessa

    Naomi, I am floored… literally, by the transformation of this kitchen. WOW! The island is lust worthy and the attention to all the minute details is flawless. Amazing!

  25. Julia

    I LOVE the backsplash.
    Would never have thought of mixing it up like that.

  26. Ah-mazing! I can’t have a favorite, I love too much of this. Every detail…you even brought your own coffeemaker over…cray! I think quartite/lite/whatever is my new favorite substance. You are designing my next kitchen, for sure.

    • Naomi

      Linda I would love to design your kitchen!!! PS one of my besties just moved to Naples so a visit is in order for me soon.

  27. Brenda

    I’ve followed this makeover every step of the way (because I too have a horribly small, outdated kitchen). You’ve converted me and turned me into a believer that kitchen dreams do come true. I think I love every aspect of this kitchen and I love the thought that has gone into the function, layout and making it beautiful. I applaud your talent and that of your team. Well done. Any chance you’d come to Florida for a real challenge?

  28. Absolutely perfect…beautiful job.

  29. naomi, im speechless. you are so incredibly talented. when are you going to write a book?!

  30. Amy C

    WOW WOW WOW! This kitchen is awesome! You and your father are the dream team to be able to do that in SIX weeks! Great job. I love it all!!!

  31. Letty

    So, so beautiful! I love every detail! Another one you hit out of the park!

  32. Holy cow!!!! Freaking fantastic from top to toes. You and your father are design team made in heaven. I love him so hard and I don’t even know him. Once again, you managed to deliver a miraculously gorgeous yet practical space filled with soooo many custom touches that take this kitchen to the stratosphere. So inspired by you all the time, my friend! KUDOS. Go celebrate with poppa, Georgie, and your bad ass self!

  33. Nicole

    I love it! The blue/ brass / walnut / white/ black mix works suprisingly well together! Very impressed. I think the counters are my favorite part- but it all looks great.

  34. Karena

    What a great team! The kitchen is so light, bright and airy, I love it. Plus it is truly functional and I know your clients will be thrilled!

    The Arts from Karena

  35. This is awesome. All of it. I have a few items to try your powdercoating trick on because those stools turned out magnificently. They look so ‘spensive! Love the countertops, the brass hardware (dah), the walnut accents and the range hood. You are really beyond talented, girlfriend. I tried really hard to make sure we ended up in a house with a garden window. Add it to the future project list! 🙂

  36. Every detail is BEAUTIFUL!! I think kitchens are harder and you make it look like a walk in the park. Every single detail is perfect.

  37. Girllll! You turned it OUT! Seriously, this is a magnificent transformation. I also wanted to say how much I loved reading about all the nitty gritty details, and seeing the process. Always informative, always fascinating.

    I particularly love the stools, the STOVE!, the window, the smart floor plan, the WALNUT!!, the fresh feeling, and the way the modern elements feel at home with the traditional touches. Not an easy line to walk. Really, really nicely done. Congratulations Team Design Manifest!

    (p.s. I might or might not be intensely jealous. I hope your clients are happy that they are now living in a jealousy inducing home.)

  38. This is incredible – should be on the cover of a magazine!

  39. Wow wow wow! This is seriously the most unique and beautiful kitchen I’ve ever seen! I love every single detail – such smart choices and what great impact on such a small space. You have outdone yourself! Cheers!

  40. You are the most amazing designer. You bring something different and cool to very design! Love the stools, the rug and the pendants! AWESOME!!!!!

  41. Michelle

    My most favorite 6 week room challenge by far…fabulous.

  42. Jenny

    The only word I had when I viewed the after photos was… “wow”.

    okay and then “I want those stools” “I want that rug” etc.

    You did good!

  43. Well….well….well….you managed to pull off this magnificent kitchen in a mere 6 weeks and I am so dang impressed!! You and your Dad are so cute and what a great team you both make. I love you vision Naomi….and I know your clients are jumping up and down with all of this loveliness! You deserve a day at the spa:)

  44. Dying, dead, goodbye. Totally blown away. I never thought I would like a colored tile backsplash, but it’s unbelievably stunning with the marble tones in the counters (and that waterfall detail…swoon). No really, can you come and do my house some day, regardless of where I’m living?

  45. Naomi, I love this kitchen so much. I love the cool blue/ white with the warm walnut and brass. You are a genius.

  46. Carol

    I think the comments to date have summed up my thoughts. You know I love the light/dark, modern/natural element contrast, and improving functionality! I LOVE the walnut inside the cabinets. (My wheels are spinning!) Great, great job, DM team!! Can’t wait for our next project 🙂

  47. I am in awe of your work. This kitchen is simply stunning – I can’t pick one favourite -I love it all from the cabinetry to the counters, to the tile and stools everything else. I’ve love a kitchen that looks like this! Congratulations on yet another brilliant project – your clients must be over the moon 🙂

  48. Amazing transformation – so unique! Not your run of the mill kitchen for sure. Love the backsplash with the counter and the walnut just warms everything up. Great job Naomi and Dad!

  49. Ali

    So amazing and not like anything I have seen!

  50. what a wonderful transformation! the quarzite is very nice with all those color variations. a great plan and design! dana

  51. Your kitchen is AMAZING! Those stools, waterfall quartzite countertop, and brass hardware perfectly compliment one another. Bravo!!!

  52. Yasmine

    Also, that photo of you and your dad at the end is the bestest and sweetest. Love!

  53. Yasmine

    What the holy freakin’ AMAZING! Naomi, this before&after is so STUNNING. You keep blowing me away with each and every project you set your hands (or design-mind) on. I want this kitchen. Your clients were smart to trust your judgement, suggestions, and creativity every step of the way. Sending you highfives and more (virtual) cupcakes all the way from California! Can’t wait to tune in tomorrow re. your own bedroom updates! 😉

  54. You and your dad make an unbeatable design team! Beautiful detailed and elegant makeover.

  55. autumn

    oh my! what a gorgeous transformation! you SHOULD be proud of that hood…it is GOREOUS! and those stools—how cool that you transformed them with powder coating. they look amazing! the details of this kitchen are so pretty—right down the that cake stand. love everything you do. and that picture with your dad is the cutest. period.

  56. You will have to excuse my french but….. fan-fucking-tastic!! It is GORGEOUS.

  57. Elizabeth

    This is really unbelievable. It’s just so stunning.

  58. Maggie

    SO so so so good.

  59. Abigail

    Congrats! I adore this kitchen, such an amazing transformation! Love the materials you used, absolutely divine!

  60. kristen

    I wasn’t sure about the tile going in – but HOLY COW – it is gorgeous. Well done. Love that you get to work with your Dad and have fun too.

  61. v v

    Gorgeous transformation!
    What was the total budget / cost of this project?

  62. Sue D.

  63. Kristen

    Wow, this is gorgeous! You and your team are so talented. And I absolutely adore the picture of you and your father–he looks so proud :-). Wishing that you were a local design build firm over here in Seattle!

  64. Sherry

    This kitchen is absolutely stunning! I am in love with how the backsplash interchanges with the Quartzite counter top. Awesome kitchen!

  65. Well I just about pinned every single picture-except the cupcakes, that just made me hungry. Amazing job!

  66. Ahhhh…. love!! You’ve outdone yourself once again. So many, many elements to drool over and be inspired by that I’m not going to list them…but will definitely be revisiting this one many times. Love, love, love every single bit. Amazing.

  67. Sylvie

    Amazing transformation! I love the brass elements in the fresh and bright space. Perfect!

  68. Mind. Blown.

    Pretty sure you know what I am gonna say: do that to my kitchen 🙂

  69. Jessie

    Beautiful kitchen! Love the walnut detail, inside and out! Those stools and gold hardware are stunning! Well done!


  70. This is absolutely stunning!!!! It’s so clean and fresh looking. I know you have some very happy clients!!! Congratulations on another great design!

  71. Becky

    What an amazing transformation! I found your blog about a month ago but this is the first time I’ve commented. I love that you showed the counter with the appliances — official, styled photos are always lovely, but hardly ever realistic. I’d much rather see the final photos showing a kitchen as it would be used by the homeowner(s).

  72. Carrie

    Stunning, Naomi!!!! I love every single element so much. The walnut, the quartzite counters, the pantry & refrigerator paneling, the hardware, the stools, the apple bowl… I could go on & on! 🙂

  73. What an incredible transformation. I didn’t think you could top the last round but here you go again. Every little detail is just amazing. What a talent!

  74. Sandra

    Phenomenal as always. You guys always put 110% into all of your projects. Just live the work you guys do. Always different and always of the highest quality.

  75. anna

    Absolutely gorgeous! Love all your choices.

  76. Really really spectacular. I love the waterfall island and all the details. Congratulations on another perfectly executed job!

  77. Naomi! You never cease to amaze! Officially in love with Quartzite – thank you for the into! Your custom hoods are insane & powder coating those stools?! Such a genius move. You are you dad killed it! x j

  78. Wow, just absolutely gorgeous!

  79. This is beyond amazing! I am in love with that kitchen. What a dream!

  80. Kristen

    It looks amazing! And you’ve given me hope that my similar-sized kitchen can one day be fabulous, too! (Ever thought about doing a job in Arlington?!)

  81. Heather

    Mind-boggling transformation! You have such vision. Totally gorgeous!

  82. megan

    The walnut-lined cabinets- I die!!! So beautiful!

  83. Liz Lindsey

    Beyond amazing!!!!! So wish that you lived in Nashville!! Do u ever do on-line, email consulting?

  84. Naomi!!! OMG! This is such a dreamy kitchen…I love the counters and the backsplash with those heavenly blues…and the walnut is just beautiful. The cabinetry is perfection…..What a beautiful reveal. This kitchen is what dreams are made of. Congrats! Love, love, love it!!!!

  85. Donna lehning

    OMG…….fabulous! I never leave comments but this blew me away. You are crazy talented. Congrats on a job well done!

  86. Naomi!!! I’m obsessed with so many elements you’ve incorporated, beyond stunning! You truly have such a gift, talented friend!

  87. Favesies: Pic of you and your Dad! So, so great (you, gorgeous, You!) This kitchen is mind-blowing. I’m only sad it’s here on the ORC b/c it might limit chances of it getting published, and this is one of the most dramatic before/after’s I’ve seen.
    So much goodness in so little space.
    Have a drank, amiga, you’ve earned it!

  88. Wow, Naomi…what a transformation! You are the ORC Queen. Always impressed by your design work and I would like this to be my kitchen right now. So bright + cool. Amazing work!

  89. Gold, walnut and white = amazing. Great function and style everywhere. Faves – bar stools, hood, waterfall island, walnut inside the cabinets, and ooohhhh that ombré backsplash. Design. Nailed. Great job as always from your team.

  90. Beth C.

    Along the way I wondered if the tile was more trouble than it’s worth. Whoa baby! No way! It is nothing short of stunning. It makes all the other options you considered predictable and bland in comparison. Bravo! Best, Beth C.

  91. Sam

    It’s simply gorgeous, Naomi! Love the warmth that the walnut brings into the space. Feels twice as big as the original layout.

    I also remember that original vinyl floor — it was in my parents house for years!

    • Kelly

      and in my kitchen 20 years ago!

  92. Doreen

    Stunning… everything is perfect. Just love everything you do!

  93. BRAVO NAOMI!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it. looks phenomenal! And i love the pic of your dad looking at you! that’s just perfect

  94. Jody


  95. Sarah

    What a fabulous transformation!! I absolutely love the white and walnut combination. The space feels so fresh and open!

  96. Dana

    Stunning, Naomi! The white/walnut combination is to. die. for.

  97. Kris

    I love that tile and countertop!

  98. Lisa

    Oh my gosh it all came together magnificently!! The backsplash, walnut interior of the cabinets, touches of gold and that unusual and pretty countertop are all my favorites. Thanks so much for sharing this project!

  99. I love it Naomi! Truly, truly one of a kind and completely brilliant. The hood is also my favorite element, but I am SWOONING over the walnut. What a surprise having the interiors of the cabinets be so special?! The waterfall island and backsplash are without a doubt amazing. I am grinning over that picture of you and your Dad, so sweet! Way to go per usual, so happy for you!

  100. OH MY WORD is all there is to say! This is definitely the most incredible transformation I have seen so far and in just 6 weeks?! I followed your tile debacle on IG and you are right, it totally paid off because it is fabulous. Way to go!

  101. What a great team you and your dad made. Job well done. I love how you made over the stools- great idea. Congrats!!

  102. Ahhhhh!!! You slay me chica!! This is beyond gorgeous!!

  103. Laura

    I am in LOVE with this design! Amazing transformation!

  104. Cathy

    Just. stunning. every. detail! Congrats on a fabulous, rock star kitchen!

  105. Ha ha! Love those paint splattered jeans 🙂 Y’all make a great team!

  106. Peggi

    Just beautiful! So many special details-smart decisions every one. Is it weird that the walnut inside the cabinets might be my favorite thing?! Lucky clients. (Pants, shmants- he’s a workin’ man.)

  107. Congratulations Naomi, you’ve done it again. I love your team and the beautiful handmade items you put in your work. The walnut is exquisite and those bar stools are awesome! Taking down that wall was everything and for a little kitchen it has a huge look to it. You and your dad are darling, what a gift to be able to work together! xo Nancy

  108. The space looks great!!! Very efficient use of the small space! Awesome job!

  109. Tamara

    Congratulations! It looks absolutely Fab – what a transformation 🙂
