Timeless White Kitchen Reno


When moving to a new home or simply finally having the time (and budget) to renovate your home to what you always wanted it to be is, without question, a moment where many important decisions will be made. Kitchens are one of the most renovated rooms in North America, only second to bathrooms. We often see inspiring kitchens in magazines and blogs, which makes it hard not to follow and dream about the latest trends, such as the very popular duo white kitchen with white marble countertop.

With the help of Martha O’Hara Interiors and Charlie & Co. Design, Ltd, this place was entirely transformed from a dark and outdated 1950’s classic Colonial Revival home to a bright and welcoming space. By removing walls to combine multiple smaller spaces into one large area, the designers helped create a new gathering point for this expanding family to entertain for years to come.


Timeless White Kitchen Reno

Nothing is better than opening the door of your home and be welcomed by beautiful and light filled interiors.

This foyer is classic and I love the blue and white motif.

Rug is by “Stark Carpet”.

This dining room is all about textures. The gray grasscloth wallpaper is softened by the luxurious blue velvet chairs.

Take a look at the “Before” picture again. Isn’t it hard to believe this is the same house? Incredible!

The perimeter countertop is honed soapstone.

Dream Kitchen

This kitchen is truly a dream! It was designed with a sense of timelessness and you can never go wrong with that.

  How wonderful is to have you here!

So, how was your weekend? I hope Spring has already sprung where you are and you were able to enjoy the weather.

Since, we’re still dealing with snow storms and cold temperatures (we’re expecting yet another storm this week), we decided to embrace what we’ve got and went outside to have some fun anyways. The kids and I spent our Sunday sledding on a park close to our home. It was fun and memorable… I fell many times, raced with the kids and laughed hard. The best moment was walking to the car, when my two older kids were holding hands with our toddler. Seeing the three of them holding hands as the snow was falling was one special moment I won’t forget.

Great moments usually happen unexpectedly. We just need to create the opportunities for them to happen.

Be open to create a special week. New opportunities await.


with Love,
