kitchen remodel

I love my home. However, when I bought it I didn’t love the size of the kitchen. It was a galley kitchen — basically a long hallway at the back of the house. I had it remodeled by Dave Rush, photos below! I’m very happy with it. Since I loved the finishes already in the kitchen, we kept and reused everything we could that was already there. The above image was the concept drawing, which was supplied by the cabinet maker. Alice Designs  and Domestic Arts also had a hand in the process.

Kitchen before (hard to photograph, since it was so long and narrow):

We couldn’t find exactly the same counter material. So, this is the schist I chose. (So gorgeous!) I really enjoyed visiting the warehouse to see all the giant slabs. It is a beautiful grey/silver, with a naturally formed metallic pattern flowing through. It’s called Black Ocean.

After — all done! So lovely. (You can see a peek into the conservatory, which will be featured in another post.)
