Photoshop Magic: The Kitchen

A few months ago, we moved into a new home and she has amazing bones. Making it our own will mostly take a little paint and lighting. One of the things I loved about this new house is the kitchen. It has these amazing counter-to-ceiling glass paneled cabinet doors and an aged butcher block counter. It was fully custom and designed by a restaurant owner and chef.

So many wonderful details! The drawers. The paneled refrigerator. The farmhouse sink.

The diamond-pane windows. and wood trimmed range. A wine fridge. It’s lovely.

However, the finish appears to have yellowed over time. They were probably closer to a heavy cream when they were installed back in the 90s. And with the warm light of this west facing window, that yellow is easily amplified.

So I am considering color.

And I’ve been pinning blue and blue-grey cabinets for years….

It didn’t take much for me to try it out:

What do you think? Is it too bold? Would you do it?
