Silver lining part 2

A few post ago I told you about my client whose house had caught fire. I had the privilege of helping them with their rebuild. I have to say my favorite part of the house is their new kitchen....

white on white with stainless appliances and GORGEOUS gray granite... yes please! The new kitchen is classic and timeless.
 Below is the kitchen after the fire. Devastating. 
The new kitchen is in the same footprint but reworked by my client to suite their needs. And, yes you are seeing double- double islands that is! I have to admit when my client first suggested this I had to google image search kitchens with 2 islands! But she knew what she wanted and did the layout and cabinet design herself! 
We picked super white granite for a carrera look without carerra upkeep! The veining is mostly creamy gray and swoon worthy! The clients gave me free rein when it came to lighting and were open to all my suggestions (love them!). We found these ceramic pendant lights at market which are perfect in the space! 
Love these bar stools? These were Overstock finds!! 
The criteria for the dining room was a HUGE table for 8-10 (only 2 are shown, but 3-4 chairs fit on each side) They also wanted to keep this room simple. The chandelier is the focal point and all the other pieces are pretty and simple. The white wine cabinet is another market find and the chairs and rug are both from the O! 
Love how the chandelier turned out in the space... it offered the perfect  little pop of color in the linen and white layered room.
The dining, foyer and living room flow nicely, but the fun didn't stop there... My client went on a mission and found this cabinet for the half bath. We topped it with a piece of the granite, vessel sink and a modern faucet. A cool furniture find can easily be turned into a vanity for a focal point in a small space.
The master bath was another favorite room...

His and her vanities flank the pocket door into the space. The vanity shown is hers! We painted the cabinets a taupey gray and used the same granite from the kitchen. I had the mirror framed and built in with the wainscoting so it looked seamless. And thank you client for your trust because I LOVE the overhead sconce! 

This was a fun project and truly a privilege to help a family rebuild after such a devastating event.  


Bye, bye birdie,
