While we didn’t start from scratch for this project, the after is still a dramatic one. We took the cabinets from dark, almost black stain, to white. New white quartz countertops and an elongated hexagon tile backsplash contributed to an overall lighter look for this space. We didn’t complete abandon the dark, however. To tie in with the dark trim and crown molding, we used a dark sink and black faucet, and black and brass fixtures over the island and dining table. Brass hardware finished off the entire look.
In the living room we did away with deep blue walls in favor of a neutral-toned grasscloth wallpaper, which pulls the veining from the quartz countertop.
The powder bathroom is a larger space and was being under utilized with the fixtures and accents. We started by wallpapering over the dark bronze walls with a light wallpaper with a muted silver pattern. We replaced the pedestal sink for an actual vanity. The green color and brass accents brought big style to this utilitarian space. We filled the space with a large glass front cabinet that provided display space and some concealed storage. A taller mirror, new light fixture and a vintage looking rug rounded out the style upgrade this space received.
