Our First Touch

The big blue house has been so wonderful to live in but the first thing that had to go was some of the blue walls!  My main priority was (and is) to finish the main floor before doing the hard work that the upstairs requires.  With that being said, the kitchen was the big blue room that had to be conquered.  
The countertops have beautiful flecks of color that will be the muse for the formal dining room, but the kitchen also needed to be painted a color that would tie together all of the existing elements of the newly renovated space.  All of the kitchen appliances are new and white in finish, the countertops are pictured above and the cabinets are a deep espresso finish.  The bright blue walls starkly contrasted with the cabinets and countertops but the color we chose created a perfect balance.
I chose this neutral olive paint for the kitchen to bring out the earthy tones in the finishes and to bring the whole room together to a cohesive look.  Below are some before and after pictures.  I am still in the process of finding new light covers (for above the bar) and getting white paint for the door that leads outside as well as small finishing touches.  For now, I am just relishing in the little "footprint" I am able to leave on this beautiful place that we call home :)
