I agree with all the posts above - the kitchen is classic and fresh, and the very best thing is that it's not giant. It's warm and personal, and there's not a thing about it that says "trendy". It's perfectly beautiful. I, too, wish Chelly a rewarding experience as she launches this stage of her career.

This is one of the best kitchen remodels I think I've ever seen! So well done! As an old house lover, this beats a giant open concept kitchen any day! That they kept the old plaster was one of the most surprising details.
Thank you for the before and after photos and room layout.

It's a real pity they don't have any working space due to all those countertop appliances and the table in the eat-in nook. I would have at least moved the appliances to the breakfast area. Otherwise, the finishes are lovely!
