Kitchen calm

I have a client that has been in their home for a good many years, and it was time for an update in the kitchen.  The appliances had all been replaced in the not too distant past, and updated to stainless. However the rest was due.

As you can see, the lighting shows it's era as well as the counter tops. The floor was vinyl, stained glass in a cupboard door is colors from a definite era, and who has a wall phone with a cord anymore?

What nice changes! Beautiful granite, solid composite chocolate brown sink, can lighting on a rheostat so the mood can be set, Italian porcelain tile flooring with a pale slate look, small shelves on the end of the cabinet converted to wine rack, beautiful hand finished tile backsplash (with no phone!),

and stained glass changed to compliment fabric used on bar stool cushion
And the paint! It was changed from a blue green to Fog. Not grey, not blue, just soft.
The cabinets stayed, because the clients liked them, and they were quality.  They were just cleaned up and new more contemporary pulls installed.
The clients, who are into yoga and dance wanted a calm, almost Zen feel. Now they feel like they have it!
