MCM this kitchen is not. But it is a very nice kitchen. Add some undercabinet lighting. If you can remove some of the upper cabinet doors and either leave open so the shelves are exposed or add some more glass to the doors like the angled corner cabinet you may achieve the lighter look you desire. Of course this means showcasing what is currently hidden, so not always a favorable concept unless you have beautiful dishes like your blue ones and an area for pantry items. It appears there is a window over the sink, add a fun valance or fabric shade that pulls in a modern pattern and more of the blue from your dishes. Think fun! Best of luck!

Have you considered painting the tile backsplash? You could use the backsplash as a way to both lighten the room and incorporate some color to give the kitchen more of a modern look to match your style. I also agree with leelee that under cabinet lighting would make a huge difference in brightening the room. I would look into painting the backsplash a white or off-white with accent tiles of another color, and installing more lighting. You can also be specific about what you keep on the counter and use counter appliances to bring color and style to the kitchen. This also has the benefit of things that will be used in daily living being incorporated into the look of the room.

While I like the idea of a longer more linear light fixture you can't go wrong with a more classic shape. I think the first one from Horchow that you selected as it will blend well with your more contemporary elements that you are adding to the space. I love the rug and don't feel like the script chairs are too much as long as you mix in two solid host chairs that pull in the deep is it black color from the rugs pattern?! I think this will help anchor the seating grouping. If the Tuscan picture is lowered and you are still not liking the feel, then consider painting the frame black or replacing it with a black frame. You have a great start to a lovely space!

The present color of you walls is better than the sage which I find to be a bit muddy and not as flattering to your other pieces.

What is the dollar amount you wish to spend on the project and what works and doesn't work for you in the current kitchen? Once you determine some of these factors it is easier to help you decide what to change and what to keep as budget determines a lot of what can actually be done.

I think your cabinets are still good. You can change your lighting, hardware and countertop along with the backsplash and flooring. If you want to get ideas visit our site: http://missionwest.biz/ or feel free to contact us for inquiries. We would be more than happy to help!

It already looks pretty good. New lighting and new hardware will update this kitchen in a day.

Very nice! I especially like what you did with the exterior. Are you planning to add a path of some sort to the front entrance? I think it would add even more to the already excellent exterior.

If you can, hire a professional to spray finish them. Even it it means getting the quote now, then saving the money to have them done later. The results will be lasting and cause you less stress/headaches.

Hi---if you can afford it, then hire a professional. If it's something you want to try tackling yourself, do a Google search---there's all sorts of information available. An HVLP conversion spray gun is worth investing in if you decide to go for it... Good Luck!

Hi Angie,
We love making Mid-Century-Modern homes ring more modern and have worked on several around town (currently in the finish stages on one right now). It looks like your ideabooks feature some brilliant bold design features from rustic modern, contemporary and classic modern.

We're a Design-Build-Furnish firm in the Austin area and it would be a pleasure to meet with you. In fact the very first image in your "Stairs" ideabook was a concept inspiration that we tried to encourage one of our clients to consider (but they weren't up for something as bold and unique). Having fun with design and thinking outside the box in a highly customized way is where we thrive. On all of our projects we try to find a way to inject a little Scandinavian Modern and a balance of playfulness and elegance which seems to share a similar thread in your featured ideabooks.

Feel free to contact us if you would like to set up a consult to see if we're a good fit.
