Upscale Country Kitchen

 We are mostly known for our painted and primitive style kitchens and furniture. Hiding appliances, crusty paint and curly maple kitchen is what we do. Occasionally we get a chance to work with some clients that want a  David T. Smith kitchen but want a cleaner, more modern look. This is one of those kitchens.  It still has our collected cabinet style, with cherry, curly maple, white and blue painted cabinets and wood counter tops. These folks had just bought some stainless appliances so we used them in our kitchen design. Our installer/contractor Joe also did all the onsite work and put in a new wood floor and did a subway tile back splash.  The kitchen has a great handmade but clean, upscale, modern feel.

Block Island Rhode Island Project

 The last couple days have been a little crazy . We flew to Providence Rhode Island yesterday and then took a small plane over to Block Island to fine tune our design for a kitchen, a desk, entertainment center and house doors for a project. This is the 2nd kitchen that I have done for this client. It is a great project. The house is on the South side of the island right on the beach.The interior of the house will have our painted kitchen plus lots of painted bead board and trim done in a Cottage style.The lighting is all brass and copper and was salvaged from sunken ships and restored.  Block Island is a really neat place with some great Historic Inns and Houses. I'll bet it is pretty busy here in the Summer time. There are no McDonald's or strip malls - Pretty cool. Watch for more posts as the project continues.
