A Plan and an Update on the Kitchen for #projectbistrochic

I thought you might like a little update on the kitchen I’ve been working on.
As the name #projectbistrochic suggests, that’s what we’re going for…a little Parisian patina mixed with a dose of refined glamour…this was the inspiration dossier…

And the design board I came up with…

Design Work- Glam Bistro

With all of this ‘planning’ in place…

…we’ve gone ahead and purchased two of these guys for over the island…

 Oversized Cone Paper Shade Pendant

…one of something like this…

…6 of these bad boys to go around said table…

Louis XVI Square Back Side Chair

…along with this etagere (that already belongs to my client) that we’ll add some brass caps to…

And as for the kitchen itself, we’re ripping out all of this stuff…

…and installing  IKEA Lidingo cabinets…

…only in white that we’ll then customizing with a nice thick freeze and crown so they appear built in.

On top of that, we’ll be putting in a black sink and this gorgeous granite…

…and a backsplash of this sort of white subway tile/dark grout variety…

…hardware and faucet will of course be brass, starting with these bin pulls for the drawers…

…and for the most exciting part, we’ll take the giant pantry that sits opposite to all of these cabinets,  rip it out, and replace it with a custom piece of furniture, thanks to master carpenter Allen…that business is going to look a little something like this…
…and I can’t wait!
So there you have it…a kitchen in the works.
More updates coming as they come.
