The loft where I currently live was once an old school. The kitchen was starting to date itself and it just didn’t match my personality and colorful and eclectic taste.
So I decided to give it a major makeover. There was no demolition (with the exception of removing the counter), just lots of DIY and cosmetic changes that gave it a whole new look. The end result is a modern and more luxe-looking kitchen with a nod to vintage (in the color and accessories).
My favorite transformation is the open-shelving I created. It breaks up the wall of cupboards and creates an area for display while still being very functional.
The tea cups were a last-minute solution, which addressed the problem of an awkward space between the two shelves. This ended up being my favorite feature of all.

Bringing the marble tile backsplash up the side walls really helped to define the kitchen in an open concept space. I really encourage having your cupboards professionally spray painted. It’s a budget-friendly way to dramatically change the look and gives you unlimited color options.
