One of my readers, Lisa, emailed me recently to ask for help with her kitchen, so I got busy and came up with an Inspiration board to give her some ideas to use in her space.
She loves the green Bordallo dishes, as well as black and white dishes, so I used those on the board too. And she’s planning to paint her kitchen with a pretty olive green, Olive 3 from Laura Ashley, which is one shade lighter than my kitchen. She also thought about adding a small piece of furniture next to her kitchen table. The border on the cabinets will be going too. Here’s what I came up with for Lisa’s kitchen, click on the board to open it up and you can see all the information for each item:
Lisa is ordering the Austrian valances from Country Curtains in the black and white check to add to her windows (which is just like the small pillow fabric you see) and taking them up higher on the windows this time. She has white cabinets and will be making some small changes to the room that hopefully will add a lot of punch. The addition of some hanging plates, a new wall color and newly updated valances will really make this room come alive. She was looking for a new fixture too, so I think this style would look great in Lisa’s kitchen.
Since her rooms all flow together, she was looking for some rug ideas for her living room too, so the rugs on here are for that space. She ended up ordering one of them. I also gave her a few tips on her other rooms in this area.
