Cheery Turquoise and Red Kitchen










I can't resist sharing this fun retro kitchen I spotted on The Kitchn! The young owners of this 100 year-old home near downtown Columbus (on East Tulane Road) have spent the last two years working hard on their fixer-upper. They've done all the labor themselves, and if you go check out this gallery you'll see the dramatic difference in the before shots. I love that they chose to preserve some of the original features of the space...the sink was refinished with fresh porcelain enamel and they had the steel cabinets painted a cherry red (and a new plate made for them too!) The glass tile and walnut counters are new though, and look great in the space. In case you're wondering, the walls are painted "Aquatint" from Sherwin-Williams...don't they look fantastic paired with the red?! Head here for more great pics and all the source info f0r the room! And with that, enjoy your weekend everyone! :)

I love it when people take a risk with design and just follow their hearts. Clearly this couple did just that. Bravo. Love it.

I love turquoise and red, but I feel this is not well done. I think that specific color of turquoise is off in that context.

Honey, you are surely speaking my language with these bright spots of red!

Oh your pictures are always so perfectly made just for you!!! This color has taken so many by storm, and I am so on board. My friend here in Minneapolis is going to paint her kitchen just like this with turquoise and white, leaving the vintage red tiles. SUCH A GREAT CHOICE!

ENJOY THE WEEKEND! Anita

AAaHH! I love your blog! I love turquoise too- in decor, jewelry, clothing....the pictures you have posted are fantastic, I love each and every one. Come visit my blog- I recently featured my love of turquoise in a coffee table I rehabbed. I have it speckled throughout my home, and will be featuring more pics soon. :)
Great idea!

FULL ON FABULOUS!

Rose - The Center of My Self said...

I imagine food prepped in this cheerful, colorful space tastes better than food prepped in a dreary space. Love the colors, love the glass tile, on the fence about the walnut counters, love the fabric. So much space and such creative uses throughout! That little bar over the window adds some functionality in a very cool way.

Casa e Cose said...
