I really love the beverage area mix of color and materials, soooo gorgeous. The pantry doors are so fabulous and rich looking. I admire your imaginative use of materials, design initiative and use of color. What I really miss whenever I have worked with professionals is their lack of imagination and creativity. It seems as though it is all so formulaic. Many times throughout our long reno I find that they seem afraid to do anything different than their usual ABC. But this work shows a very creative imagination which is hard to find. Brava!

This kitchen was my inspiration for redo on mine, we came across a lot of hitches and the professionals I talked to did not share my vision and wanted to talk down to me, so I decide to go solo on the project! Thankfully my husband was on board and mist of the stuff we did was diy. The only snag right now is that the so called professional installers BestBuy sent to install our dishwashers had never heard of installing two dishwashers to one drain! They only installed one and left. Though I have seen two dishwashers installed to one drain. I would like to know if anyone can help us install the second dishwashers to the existing drain,here in Orange County, California?
Thank you.

These kitchens are both beautiful; I actually find the "before" kitchen warmer and more inviting. Pretty but a bit too much stark white in the after kitchen.
