The Prettiest Green And Pink Kitchen Remodel That We Completed In 7 WEEKS

Glad reveal day! I can’t specific how thrilling and downright enjoyable this kitchen makeover has been to execute and see come to life. After doing my very own three-year renovation-to-reveal course of on our farmhouse, it has been extremely satisfying to show round a kitchen makeover in lower than two months (!!). If you’re simply touchdown right here at this time and that is all new to you, you’re going to wish to head to this submit to see all of the earlier than images and skim concerning the funds, timeline, and desires and needs of the house owner. Then come again studied up and take on this magnificence totally.

To assist them launch their new line of renovation merchandise, I collaborated with Crate & Barrel to present a brand new life to this kitchen. In only a bit, you’ll see the gorgeous kitchen island from the gathering however know that there’s a lot extra: a number of kitchen island choices, toilet vanities, {hardware}, and, after all, lighting and equipment. Our reader/house owner, Julie, submitted her kitchen for the makeover and we felt prefer it was the right house that checked all our packing containers—timeline, funds, type, and the precise house to indicate off the island. Then, we started working. I employed a well-known crew to me together with my former PDX assistant, Sarah Weldon, to challenge handle and do all of the renderings wanted, in addition to my brother Ken to be the contractor and handle all of the subs. I’ve to say it went SO WELL, with a number of regular problem-solving alternatives that we truthfully sailed by way of collectively.

And earlier than we get into the photographs and particulars right here’s a enjoyable video concerning the transformation! (simply look ahead to the advert to play:))

Earlier than

As a reminder, the kitchen earlier than had a ton of potential and was ripe for a surface-level glow-up because it didn’t want any new electrical or plumbing, no partitions moved, and no engineering—all beauty. Right here was our to-do checklist once more:

  • Set up new panel-ready home equipment + functioning vary
  • Take away uppers and change with open shelving and a brand new hood
  • Refinish ceiling (test yesterday’s submit for what we did)
  • Add new {hardware}, faucet, and lighting
  • Paint and wallpaper

We’d preserve the next:

  • Present structure
  • All of the decrease cupboards (and financial institution of drawers), in addition to the sink
  • Flooring
  • Paneling (it will simply have to be patched and painted)
  • Counter tops, reducing the place wanted (they’re fairly good and changing them is an actual factor)

The entire challenge took virtually two months, seven sub-contractors, and a whole lot of arduous work by my crew to get her performed. Whereas this can be a sooner and extra budget-friendly kitchen rework as in comparison with most, we needed to be actual concerning the quantity of effort and time that went into it as a result of it’s nonetheless rather a lot. My hope is which you could glean concepts and data from this makeover that you possibly can implement in your personal rework.

The Kitchen Now!!!

Cabinetry Paint Shade | Wallpaper | Backsplash Paint Shade | Ceiling Mild | Island | Stools | Knobs | Pulls | Applicance Pulls

It’s arduous for me to not scream HOW GOOD IS THIS however I suppose I simply did. We find it irresistible so very a lot, are you able to blame me? This kitchen now has a lot persona, an actual viewpoint, and a whole lot of whimsical touches rendered in a extremely recent manner. The colours all work so effectively collectively to present it depth and an actual sense of house, whereas the island enhances all of it and provides a lot perform. Be aware how effectively the tones of the veining on the stone work with the inexperienced cabinetry. ::chef’s kiss::

Sconce | Vase | Footed Bowl | Mug

The floral wallpaper is by Kelly Ventura and was the true jumping-off level for the room’s shade palette. We pulled the inexperienced (Rosemary by Sherwin-Williams) and the sunshine blue/inexperienced of the backsplash (Conservative Grey by Sherwin-Williams) from the sample and, frankly, I used to be ecstatic to do a pink and inexperienced kitchen. We weren’t in a position to see the stone in individual for the island so we had been more than happy to see a lot inexperienced within the veining. Integrating the home equipment went a protracted approach to making the kitchen really feel extra streamlined and fashionable. It wasn’t a ton of cabinetry to start with so eliminating the visible cease of an equipment entrance like, say, the dishwasher, goes a protracted approach to streamline the design. In case you’re curious to be taught extra about the right way to combine your home equipment with out changing all your cabinetry, keep tuned as a result of we’re engaged on that submit. For this house, it was nonetheless a $4,000 funding, however far cheaper than gutting all of it.

For the brand new hood, we purchased a hood insert and built-in it right into a easy boxed cupboard that we trimmed out with a little bit element on the underside. It’s painted the identical shade because the beadboard since there was sufficient occurring between the inexperienced and the floral wallpaper. Whereas I did point out we had been protecting the prevailing beadboard, we ended up needing to interchange what was behind the vary since we prolonged it larger than it was prior when it met the higher cupboards that had been eliminated. That was one in all our unexpected hiccups, however it was inexpensive and readymade so my brother was in a position to supply the matching profile and get it up.

The Island

Now for the explanation for the season. This entire kitchen partnership with Crate & Barrel was to characteristic this island which is among the 4 that they simply launched. Earlier than we had even chosen the kitchen we had been going to makeover, I selected the Terra 78″ Marble Prime and Pure Oak Wooden Kitchen Island with Storage as a result of I responded shortly to it, stylistically, and I knew it might work with so many various kinds. Along with this one, they’ve others which are extra modern or extra conventional. The Terra is so easy and prime quality, the white oak and marble are timeless and basic, and it’s extraordinarily practical in each prep, storage, and seating. It’s priced very well for what you get and comes completely constructed with white glove service (extraordinarily plug-and-play).

Mixing Bowls | Baking Dishing | Measuring Cups | Dish Towel

On high, you’ve got three nice drawers for flatware, utensils, and placemats. On the left aspect, you’ve got actually deep pull-out drawers which I’d use for trash and recycling. Within the center part, you’ve got two deep drawers for bigger gadgets like mixing bowls, massive pots/pans, and baking dishes. Then on the precise is one other pull-out drawer for a stand mixer or inventory pot, in addition to a shelf possibility must you wish to put different bigger pots or bowls. It’s HIGHLY practical and effectively thought out. Bonus factors? The drawers comfortable shut like a dream.

On the again aspect, you’ve got a 14.5-inch overhang which is ample for sitting and with the opening being 68 inches, you may match three large-sized stools completely.

Pot Rack | Solid Iron Oven | Ceramic Olive Oil Cruet

The marble high is a honed strong stone with a whole lot of refined veining for forgiveness. We had been so impressed with this explicit stone; it had so many comfortable golden and inexperienced tones and the Crate & Barrel crew pulled no stops in its high quality. It completely doesn’t look readymade. One thing to notice for anybody with a sink or cooktop/vary of their present island is that you simply’ll must relocate these. This island is ideal for a kitchen like this that had a freestanding furnishings piece that could possibly be changed with a extra practical island. That, or a kitchen with no island in any respect that has the walk-around clearance for one.

The Plate Wall

Wall Plates (classic) | Candlestick Holders | Vase | Plates | Napkins | Flatware | Desk Lamp

Our house owner Julie (who understandably didn’t wish to be on digicam) is an antiques supplier and she or he had this unbelievable assortment of ironstone platters. We fortunately leaned into this and, after arranging them outdoors on the ground of the deck (ha!), displayed all of them on the wall. Julie assisted us and glued plate hangers to the again of every one after which we simply went for it. I couldn’t find it irresistible extra. You possibly can see a whole lot of the age and totally different designs of the edges. This assortment comes from years of scouring the markets and I’m so grateful that we acquired to show them for her (and us).


Knobs | Pulls

In case you don’t keep in mind the “earlier than,” this financial institution of drawers had a lot {hardware} with handles upon handles that made it look actually busy. Sarah did a implausible job of reconfiguring the brand new {hardware} in a manner that was extra fashionable and subdued. We mixed one easy brass micro-knob on the tiny drawers and one pull on the bigger ones which supplies them extra energy and extra presence, with much less. This {hardware} is beautiful with spherical backs and a candy little spherical element on the deal with, too.

Bowl | Wood Mortar and Pestle

I can’t stress sufficient the significance of blending knobs and handles to make one thing really feel really customized and well-designed. They simply complement one another so effectively and are scaled proportionally to the dimensions of the drawers. We additionally beloved that the island didn’t want {hardware} (it has finger pulls reduce into the highest of the drawers) in order that it could possibly be extra of a standalone piece (suppose just like the one within the farmhouse the place we did the financial institution of cupboards in a single shade/{hardware}, however let the island be its personal factor that also labored so effectively).


Mild Fixture

We wanted to interchange the lighting over the island to have extra presence and be scaled higher for the massive island. We discovered this linear pendant with two shades that labored completely in our design plan. The white and heat brass was precisely what this wanted to not be too distracting with the decrease ceilings. This fixture additionally comes with drop choices for the size and will be a lot larger in case you have larger ceilings (the rods can screw collectively in sure increments to present you extra size choices). As a result of Julie has two sons which are actually tall, we needed to go above their eye-line and never be proper of their face, so we dropped this pendant a foot down (plus the shades).

Open Shelving

Prime Shelf: Pitcher | Berry Colander Mug | Wooden Board (related) | Pink Planter (unavailable) | Serving Bowl
Backside Shelf: Mugs | Wood Plates | Ceramic Bottles (classic) | Small Bowls | Giant Bowls | Mortar and Pestle
Counter: Slicing Board | Canisters | Facuet | Wood Lazy Susan | Garlic Bowl (related) | Pepper Grinder

I get goosebumps each time I see this shot. The colours are so magical and also you don’t even discover the straightforward stone that she already had as a result of it really works so effectively with the 2 inexperienced tones. Considered one of our unpredicted prices was to get a stone cutter on web site to take down the previous backsplash that was there, drill an additional gap for our new faucet and take away a part of the stone behind the vary so we might slide it in additional. We combined each Julie’s items with rather a lot from Crate for the styling, protecting it heat, whimsical, and fashionable. Her two boys are grown (however nonetheless stay together with her at instances) so her storage wants had been far lower than after they had been little and she or he was excited to get the uppers gone and nonetheless have the ability to take a look at some fairly issues. We supplied to place all of her authentic plates and bowls up right here once we left, however she didn’t need us to the touch the styling so we left every thing as-is (together with the garlic). Julie, you had been A DREAM to work with. I’ve by no means performed a makeover with somebody that was so legitimately useful and so beneficiant. She even gave me three of my favourite seascapes! Thanks, Julie!

Earlier than And Afters

And now for some dopamine-inducing earlier than and afters within the ever-gratifying side-by-side format to see what was achieved. I want I might provide you with all an in-person tour as a result of as soon as you might be on this kitchen, it simply SINGS. The Crate & Barrel crew took some video content material and a whole lot of social so you’ll want to test them out on mine and Crate’s accounts so you may get a full circuit of the house (together with the island).

What an extremely enjoyable and satisfying job this was. Crate & Barrel was so great to work with, Julie was so beautiful, my crew killed it, and I get to face right here and provides the glow of some severe collective arduous work and satisfaction. This challenge was such an awesome reminder that once you push issues a bit with shade and sample, all of it pays off ultimately. Being on this kitchen is such a pleasure.

The entire room turned out simply so dreamy, recent, fashionable, and candy, and with the assistance of the brand new Crate & Barrel kitchen island, additionally extremely practical. An enormous because of my crew, Sarah Weldon for co-designing and challenge managing, Ken Starke as the final contractor, Emily M. and Gretchen on my crew for social and manufacturing assist. Crate even had Emily Bowser come up and assist type to digicam whereas I used to be in entrance of it on the day of the shoot. All of them know that my favourite line is, “Many arms make mild work” and on this case, I couldn’t have requested for higher and extra enjoyable arms. 🙂

Thanks SO a lot to Crate & Barrel for sponsoring this challenge and submit! These are one of the best type of partnerships and attending to work with such an awesome crew and model makes it that significantly better.

This submit was sponsored by Crate & Barrel however all phrases and opinions are all mine. 🙂
