She earned a Diploma with Distinction in Professional Interior Design from Rhodec International in London.

Thrte is a professinally applied paint for appliances, it is done in your home with electrostatic system, very nice looking and done quickly. As of rthe cabinets I would take the doors and drawer fronts out to be sprayed and just hand paint the boxes. Think about if you want to change handles and knobs and if so have the original holes filled so you can choose anything .

Just know that oak grain is deep and prominent and if you paint it out, you will most likely see it regardless. I would definitely hire a painting contractor and find out what he plans to do. There will most likely be a sealer, a mixed coat, a primer coat and several tops coats before he's done. Also, the sheen should not be too high as this calls attention to the grain as well. Do your homework and you can be very happy with the result!

Possibly angling the two chairs will give the arrangement with the two sofas a friendlier feeling. Also, use an oval cocktail table. You have too many pieces for a small room.

I have two small children, and they wiggle into spaces, and get behind things and sometimes you need to get to where they are quickly, so I see a sectional as being more difficult to navigate around to quick get to them, unless you plan on vaulting it...I'd stick with couches and chairs.

Also, try to define your style. Use Houzz as a tool! Gather a bunch of LR photos into an idea photo and try to discover the common features of each. Your room is a mixture of styles now and doesn't have a cohesive feeling to it. This is part of how you get a room to feel welcoming and cozy. By making sense of it all.

I like the color of the island in this kitchen and I suggest finding a gray/brown that goes with your counters. It will work with the white floors and the grout.

This color is called Texas leather.

You are currently struggling with pinkish cabinets and green walls. They clash. I agree that paining the cabinets a soft white (to match the floor) is your best option. Also, I notice some country style furniture in the room adjacent. A white kitchen fits nicely. Paint is a pain but relatively cheap in comparison to your other options.

I agree. A larger run half under is the best option. It will soften and quiet your room without getting too "busy".

It does feel wonderful to leave the bed and put your feet on soft plush rug. Myself I love it. Beautiful rug can add a lot of coziness and personality to the room. You may find many ideas on my Pinterest board (Domirugs ) . Welcome to check my website: www.domirugs.com for some rugs ideas.

I agree. I think a rug in such a small space would overpower the room, especially since there's really no need for it as the room is already carpeted. To ground the room and add a punch of color, I would get rid of most of the pillows, center the bed on the wall and bring more color in through vibrant pillow covers or art.

How about going almost black for door and garage doors? Nice with the nickel accents and a nice sharp punch against a very substantial home.

I also think the trim everywhere such as the windows need to be black as well. Or even a charcoal gray. Currently, the color looks to be too warm.

Thank you everyone! I think I may go with a light sand color. I do like the black idea but I was hoping to only paint the door and not get into painting all of the windows and trim.

I love your home, It's beautiful!!!! The sand color for the doors will keep it refined and sophisticated.

Never try to just match woods or even wood and tile that looks like wood. It will looked like you missed. Instead, I would find something in the same color family and shade but that looks entirely different than the wood. This will lessen the contrast and work well overall.

I was going to go for a completely different color but same undertone. But, it seems as if most wouldn't do that....so I am reconsidering. Thanks!

I agree with Talianko DGL. Dont try to match real and not real. The side by side comparison will really make the not real wood look awkward.

I agree also. White cabinets will be less contrasting to the white appliances. Paint the walls the same white also to help visually "lift" the upper cabinets. Use nickel hardware to coordinate with the peninsula top. Get rid of all oak furniture, update to something else.

Looks like a fun kitchen to face lift! Gray or green/gray would be beautiful. Or, you could mix it up with gray and white. Here's photos that show some great combinations with these colors, as well as some other ideas that may come in handy!

Love the light gray dark gray idea. The light that is coming in from the window is terrific. And hopefully, new overhead lighting is in the budget. Congrats on new house.

I would paint the walls a rich tan/brown to play down the pattern in the granite. Lighting, art, towel bars, mirror will all help to call attention away from the counter tops. Don't worry. You selected a nice combination of counter/shower tile. You're probably just in shock because its new and different than you've had before.

Nice job, Grover. The dark cabinets look way nicer. In 6 months, you'll stop looking at it so closely.
