Lara's Kitchen: Before & After

Design*Sponge

We spotted the kitchen makeover of Lara Ferroni today. Lara is a photographer based in Seattle, Washington and had a very unfortunate kitchen that needed a little work. Luckily she has great taste&mdash because we're now inspired to transform our own kitchen!

We spotted Lara's kitchen on Design*Sponge and the best part of the transformation &mdash the demise of those overpowering bright red walls! Lara removed excess cabinetry above and next to the kitchen sink &mdash replacing them with unique, decorative shelves. Under the shelves, we're happy to see that Lara selected a much more subtle paint color for the bead board she installed. It brings interest and texture to the space.

We love the color blue that she chose to paint the cabinets. Light blue and cream work so well together; especially with the muted pottery on the shelves. The white and butcher block island closes in the wide open space (in a good way).

Lara Ferroni also installed a wine glass rack under the cabinets. We've always been intrigued by wine glass racks because we don't have very much cabinet space&mdash we were thinking about installing one ourselves!

Overall, we really enjoyed what Lara did with her kitchen! It's calming, serene and really makes you want to whip up something tasty!
