Believe it or not this started out as a dark cherry cabinet kitchen, with black granite countertops, and the island you see now but it was painted black! The homeowners decided to call Wysteria when they couldn't decide where to relocate their refrigerator, if they should at all, and whether or not they should take out their existing custom bench seating area. After assessing the functionality of the space and budget considerations, we all decided to keep the existing layout but splurge on items like Calacutta Venice quartz countertops with matching backsplash. If you look close the gray veins on the countertop run right up the walls of the backsplash giving a light and airy feel to the room. We are ecstatic that our clients were bold enough to go along with the idea of painting the bead board ceiling blue, along with a darker blue on the island. We had custom upholstered bench cushions made in a gorgeous navy blue floral print and our interior stylist loaded the area with comfortable pillows that have energizing colors and patterns. The result is a fresh take on a contemporary country kitchen.
