A Client's Charming Kitchen Refresh

Two months ago a client here in Louisville contacted me to help her with some small updates to her dining room and kitchen.  She lives in a very charming 1930's home in an older and very quaint neighborhood of Louisville.  Her home is beautiful.   She loves design and actually worked in design in her younger years, but solicited my help to act as a sounding board and offer some opinions.

Below is the inspiration picture she shared with me for her kitchen.

It has been super fun working with her as she loves design so much.  She is inspired by the clean and simple feel of the kitchen above and wants a fresh take for her kitchen.  Her kitchen is small, but perfect for her as she lives alone.  See below.

Isn't it wonderful??!!  That stove! I completely love it.  So charming!  

We both agreed she needs to remove the soffits to open up her kitchen and give her more height.  Aesthetically, it'll look cleaner with the shaker style cabinets.  We both agreed that moving her refrigerator to the opposite wall and extending the counter to the right of the stove would be a smart design move.  She said she could afford more counter space especially when she entertains and has her family over.  Ideally, it would've been great if she could've centered her stove with counters on either side, but is limited to the exhaust/vent/fan.  

She is going to keep her current corian countertops (you can see them peeking out in the bottom left corner) and she is investing in new shaker style cabinets.  I loved it when she also wanted brass hardware and is considering black mullions for her kitchen window.  Very english, no?  She will be replacing her current F&B wallpaper with a fresh botanical from GP & J Baker.   I love that she still wants wallpaper in her new kitchen!

You can see all the design elements below.   It's going to look superb!!


  1. That's going to be so pretty!

  2. It's going to be charming! Love the inspiration and your design

  3. What smart recommendations, Fran. I'm eager to see the afters, especially removal of the soffits and the new wallpaper.
