I've started a new project- basically a gut of a kitchen in
the Knox- Henderson area of Dallas.
My client, New York, New York and I have covered our
bases, starting with the new cabinetry.
I recommended: Custom
NY, NY wants: Semi- Custom
I recommended: Glass fronts
NY, NY wants: All wood
I recommended: The white kitchen above (to get out of my system)
NY, NY wants: The opposite:)
(you see how this is going!)
This is an example of a Designer/Client collaborative effort...
which is working...really it is!:)
Here's the before:
and here is the drawing for the after...
A bit more modern-
The drawing doesn't show the cove crown to the ceiling as well as the
hardware or countertops... I'm crossing my fingers for Silestone and a granite island.
Here's a slight addition on my part:)
Once we were satisfied with the overall design,
next was the backsplash tile-
Linear mosaic... great colors to go with a silver gray quartz counter
NY, NY wants:
But... with the removal of the tropical brown granite and
addition of some white glass
(my original Plan A until I found the above!)
I'm pushing for the compromise:
Custom tile pattern from Arizona Tile
1. Choose your colors
2. From hundreds of choices
3. Put in the the computer program
by percentage of color preference...
and it's yours-
My job is to propose ideas that will work and
the client makes the decision...
The one decision made is semi-custom cabinetry
by Kraftmaid. I have to say I am impressed with the
multitude of options available.

I will update as the plan progresses...
I'm glad New York, New York has good taste:)
Until next time,
