Saving the Day
Designer Yina Brown had the interesting challenge of tackling a kitchen that had already been remodeled, but the original designer and contractor had badly drywalled the window behind the range. The water damage caused by this mistake ruined half of the space and left the client at odds with his new kitchen.
To keep the costs down, Brown reused the undamaged cabinets and ordered replacements for the ruined ones. The marble countertops were also painstakingly removed and reinstalled.
The navy blue base cabinets are balanced by the white uppers, open wood shelving and brass touches in the light fixtures and hardware.
Instead of the original shiplap wood used in the backsplash, the team opted for the more fire-safe option of porcelain tile.
