Kimberly of Swoonworthy and her partner Wayne did a great job renovating their old kitchen, but Kimberly wasn’t entirely happy with the results. She is a girl who requires more drama from her interiors. A couple of simple DIY projects later, she’s added some glitz and glamor to this space.

And here it is, in all its sparkling glory. The changes aren't huge, but here are the little details that made the difference:

Kimberly papered behind the open shelving with a dark grey and silver wallpaper that was originally intended for the dining room, then added lots of gold accessories like her vintage plates and dinky gold and white hedgehog bowls.

She also replaced the chrome 'S' hooks under the wall cabinets with brass ones, and swapped all the hardware on the cabinet doors for some Chinoiserie-style brass handles she found on ebay.
