View from Kitchen
So my first decision was whether to go with one color palette throughout the main floor again, or whether to divide and conquer! The living room and kitchen are open to a sitting room and the foyer. This is the sitting room/ foyer area off the main living room. This poor "room" has never known what it wants to be!
Sitting Room/ Foyer
Now, don't worry, my pathetically unused and ignored sitting room is going to get a makeover too, but stage #1 is the Living Room & Kitchen area.
The kitchen will be an extension of the living room based on this design collage I put together. The trim, walls and rug will be black and white. This basic palette allows me to use my existing furniture and add color and texture with pillows, and accessories. I think that it will also showcase our existing art much more than the grayish blue.
The painters have been here off and on for two weeks and the refresh is underway! Stay tuned for the results!
