Remember the on-going story of our kitchen? Read about it here.

So….the colors were basically yellow and gray. But I wanted a touch of orange!

Leading into the kitchen, from the front hall, is this smaller “back” hallway: just enough wall space to make it significant, but also many doors.

 We went from plain, boring white:

to fun, contemporary, ALIVE, “Copper Harbor”:
from this:

to this:

I’ve had this picture in my files for months and months. A basically white kitchen (like ours) is transformed with this one pop of color! We too have a set in window above the sink. Love it!
And here are some fun fabrics:
well, actually ANY Alan Campbell fabric!…..
This little cutie I just bought at One Kings Lane! The color was SO perfect, how could I turn it down?
It’s coming along, this kitchen of ours. Tomorrow we go to make the final selection for granite for the island (no, the butcher block just doesn’t cut it…).
Stay tuned!

    The copper color is very very nice. It does exactly what others say – draws the eye along into the kitchen while making the space look interesting.
