A while back, I posted some classic black and white kitchens as inspiration for a client who hired me to help with the kitchen renovation in her 1970 ranch home. Currently, everything has been ripped out - cabinets, countertops, appliances - and we are working with a blank slate. Handscraped walnut floors went in last weekend, walls are being painted the most beautiful shade of gray/blue and white Shaker-style cabinetry and gorgeous quartz countertops are on their way in, in the next week and a half. We're throwing some bamboo Roman blinds in there for warmth and texture, a glossy 1x2 inch white subway tile backsplash, glass light fixtures and a mix of silver metals for a modern, elegant twist on the classic black and white kitchen. Stay tuned for progress pics!
