Here is my kitchen now. The good news is that I adore my kitchen - the cabinets, the countertops, the floor, the wall color, the layout. In fact, the kitchen is the original kitchen in this beautiful fifty year old Georgian colonial of mine. The second owners (we are the third) updated it, painting the original wood cabinets white and adding the tile floor, Corian countertops, island, glass cooktop, and white tiles. I love green and painted the previously white walls in a beautiful mint green and repainted the cabinets and trim in my favorite white.
All I want to do over the next six weeks is to have fun bringing in new lighting, window treatments, art, and accessories, with lots of Chinoiserie, of course. I am starting with two wonderful Chinoiserie pieces already - the pair of Chinese Chippendale counter stools in Brunschwig & Fils Xian that I had coated for the ultimate in kitchen use and spill protection.
