Chris and Heather’s Serene and Hippie Kitchen

We are just so smitten by this kitchen! It has so much going on for it: It’s light and serene, and yet it’s fun and colorful, too, with little surprises that make it so fun to look at. We bet it’s really fun to cook in, too.

Heather says that they are very proud of their vintage-modern kitchen. They did remodel, but they did it without gutting the kitchen or trashing the cabinets. Instead, Chris painted all the cabinets, and even created a pantry closet out of a coat closet! They changed the top cabinet doors to ones with glass centers, which really helps make the kitchen feel even more open and light. In the comments, Heather notes that the kitchen paint color is Martha Stewart Fine Paints of Europe Aracuana (AR-14).

Cheery and bright, but also cool and soothing — what a great combination!
