This fresh, light and updated Kitchen makeover in the Junior League of Greater Princeton Designer Show House was achieved by using Farrow and Ball paint, refurbishing the existing cabinets, updating appliances and the addition of a Baker "island". The old linoleum floor was polished and livened up with the placement of an antique Oriental carpet. Antique white with blue transfer plates were hung on the walls in lieu of wall covering. Unique original art work by Carol Nagel hung on the soffit adds interest to the sink area.
The Kitchen Study had been a very small Laundry Room. The chocolate colored walls help create an oasis of calm where menus could be planned or Kitchen cooking shows viewed on TV. There's a lovely comfortable chair for reading or relaxing and even a desk (with a disappearing chair) for times when a surface is needed for writing or notebook.
This is the Kitchen Study where menus can be studied, groceries ordered, bills paid or cooking shows watched. There's also room to relax in the wing chair and follow a favorite chef. The chocolate brown Farrow and Ball wall paint creates a change of mood from the white Kitchen and offers a cozy oasis for enjoying a cup of tea or coffee.
