Karen Garlanger Designs














As much time as I spend drooling over white kitchens on Pinterest, I also love kitchens filled with color–especially with white cabinets! Karen Garlanger Designs out of Benton Harbor, Michigan gave this once-dated kitchen photographed by Victor Coar a bright and beachy facelift. I am loving all the colors in the glass tile backsplash...looks great with Benjamin Moore's Bridal Bouquet on the walls! Love the island, bench and striped rug too! See more pics (including before-n-afters) here, and read about the space and get sources on Cultivate!

(If you love Wythe Blue, you'll love this other kitchen designed by Karen that I featured last year!)

Love the 2 blues together - the lighter shade on the walls and the deeper blue on the island bench. The painting really "pops" too! What a conversation piece!

Its pretty but the clashing colors bother me, the beautiful French blue of the island, backsplash and teapot is overshadowing by the clashing turquoise. I wonder why the designer ruined what could have been potential for a gorgeous French country look with matching paint? Or else painting the island a whitewash white would have been better . That kitchen color mess would drive me insane in a day. Some designers have no taste

SO gorgeous! Loving that tile back splash in the kitchen! My eye was drawn to it immediately!! Also--the orange painting is the perfect splash of color to the space!

Clashing paint? (re: anonymous).....not eveything needs to be matchy matchy. I think it is a beautiful blend of colors.

I have been staring at this post since August...it's just gorgeous! I am redoing my kitchen and must have that striped rug. Any idea where it was purchased?

Erin, Any clue how to buy the orange canvas on the wall behind the table. Just perfect for my Dining room. Love your posts!
