I wanted to share one of my favorite projects that I've worked on recently. I'm freelancing for HGTVRemodels and had the pleasure of working with the talented stylist Chelsea Fuss of Frolic! and photographer Lisa Warninger of Urban Weeds on a kitchen remodel project in Portland, Oregon. This kitchen looks amazing, don't you think? It's pretty much my dream kitchen, right down to the backsplash made of antique tiles from Hungaria and the handmade wood dining table with the raw edges. And that sink!
Bryan Steelman and his wife Claire remodeled this kitchen in their 100-year-old house (that had never been updated — there wasn't even a shower in the home before!). They're the owners of two Mexican restaurants in Portland that are on my list to visit whenever I can make it out to that cool little city. Their kitchen is the perfect marriage of function and style in my book. So much of the design direction is rooted in the practicality that comes from Bryan's years of working in the restaurant business. (I'm sold on that sink with the wide basin.) And then Claire spent time scouting for all the unique, vintage, reclaimed accents and materials in the kitchen space that come together to make it feel like a home. And, I think it's so refreshing to see a kitchen that doesn't look like every other one you see. I'm so inspired by this kitchen.
