Photo Styling--Who was it that did it professionally?

posted by: beekeeperswife on 08.02.2013 at 04:33 pm in Home Decorating & Design Forum

I'm sorry, I can't remember which GW member did this professionally in "a past life". My bad. It's on the tip of my tongue too.

If you are out there, can you email me?

Thanks, I have a question for you.

RE: Anyone have pics of fridge flanked by tall pantries? (Follow-Up #4)

Here is a picture of our pantries flanking fridge. On the end is the utility cabinet and on the right side is a pantry with pull out drawers. Tray divider is over the fridge. We love the setup.

Hey everyone, I know it's been a long time coming for me. I thought I was going to get a really good photographer to come in and take pics but it just hasn't panned out so I used my cell phone with the HD option on. Just a notice, it's not the greatest camera and my picture taking ability isn't that great, nor do I know how to use photoshop. So what you get is what you get. Hopefully they are good enough for you.

Now onto the details...

The project was conceptualized last October, construction began in mid November. We had semi functional use of it during Christmas but it still had a long way to go. After lots of structural repairs and slight idea changes along the way the project was probably completed with decorating done by late February. The place is considerably more functional and the floor is no longer going to collapse through to the basement. I decided to remove a large pantry which was taking up too much space, as well as remove the dining room closet which was too small to be used for anything. Those you can see in the before pictures. The lovely lady in those pictures is not me btw.

It took me many trips to the stores and many conversations to finally get everything dialed in exactly the way I wanted it. I feel that the style I have is very fitting to the home which is from 1922. Not sure exactly how I would categorize it but if I had to take a stab I'd say, somewhat traditional, somewhat french country, somewhat professional. But the final product came out very warm and inviting. We use the kitchen 10 fold now compared to the old one for entertaining purposes alone.

The old kitchen was a functional disaster and I wish I had some pictures of it before, but I only have pictures of the day of first removal. I have a video though of the kitchen before which I will post here...

Moving right along then... and since everyone loves to know what every little detail is I guess I'll have to run down the list which as follows:

Countertops: Super-white quartzite, and yes the island is all one single slab
Backsplash: herringbone Carrara marble with matte finish subway tiles
Flooring: Virginia hardwood wide plank hickory
Fridge: Sub-zero 36SXS
Micro: Viking designer series
Wall oven: Bertazzoni 24 inch classic electric
Range: 36 inch Bertazzoni gas
Hood: 40 inch Viking designer series with 650cfm
DW: Fisher and Paykel tall dishdrawer
Sink: Elkay stainless farmhouse
Bar sink: Kohler trough
Main faucet: Rohl country in satin
Bar faucet: Rohl country series, not exactly sure what model
Washer+dryer: Samsung front loaders
Chairs: Restoration hardware french cafe Madeline chairs
Other goodies: full extension soft close drawers, heavy cast knobs and pulls (some outfit in NJ) love the pulls because they actually are screwed directly into the face. The beer setup is a Khrome design tower with Perlick no drop faucets. Entryway color tiles on the stairs are from Pewabic pottery in Detroit, the steps are a shale of some sort.

Enough talk I'm sure you've already passed by all that and moved right down here to where I've stashed what you are all waiting for...



And completed:

Any other pictures of specific areas I will try and make happen if you'd like. Ask any questions as well, I'll be around to answer them for you. Thanks so much for looking, and thanks for the great ideas and the knowledge I've gained from using this fine website.

Should I add corbels? pic included

posted by: jillandmatt on 09.10.2011 at 07:37 am in Kitchens Forum

I just figured out how to post pictures! Just in time to get some help on our almost finished kitchen. I am thinking about adding corbels under the two glass front cabinets on either side of the sink. Would it look strange to have them under those cabinets only, or should it be all or nothing?
Thanks for anPhotobuckety thoughts!

Judydel can you post a million picks of your gorgeous kitchen?

I saw a few in the thread on latches and did a search but didn't see a finished kitchen pick, and I would love to, I love the garden sink with the tall cabinets next to it!
