We choose slip covered chairs in the same color palette and I think the fabric soften the room. It's great to use a slip cover because you can always through it in the wash and it will always look and stay clean and fresh.
The client choose the blue wall paint and it pairs nicely with the back splash. Instead of covering the entire back splash we only tiled over the sink and stove. This was a way to add a bit of flare to the room and was also cost effective.
My client already had the hand painted tiles installed for the island top....they are just beautiful and show off her personality and add charm to the room. I always encourage my clients to leave little bits of their personality in each room. A collections of items that they love, a great piece of art ...anything that tells your guest a little bit about you.
I thinks the kitchen came out great...and the house is still for sale! Contact Gigi Burke of Burke Reality for more information at 504-416-2263
We also freshen her den furniture. My client is not afraid of color. She originally had a beautiful black Oushak rug with a busy pattern. I encouraged her to again go netural. A simple sisal rug will allow for the bold new orange fabric for the sofa and a fun green patten for the love seats. This room can handle that kind of color because her walls and floors provide a neutral base to play off of. That neutral base invites bold color in her fabric and art.
