~ Kitchen Cabinets . Mixed Finishes . Red & Wood

Kitchen with Wood Cabinets
Red Island & Select Bottom Cabinets

Standing in this kitchen and walking around, it was very easy to see yourself at home cooking dinner or baking cookies.

However, sometimes it's not all that easy to mix finishes as skillfully as it is done here. The key to the design was to not overdo it. The red is used on the island where you might expect it and then again along side the cooktop stove. It is not on all of the bottom cabinets.

This house was built about 2 1/2 years ago. I wonder if they would still choose the same finish for the faucet. It appears that the bronze finishes are no longer as popular. I have found that I'm getting tired of the look in my kitchen, but I've had it for over 5 years.

Sorry for the quality of the picture. I just grabbed my little camera and never looked to see what it was set on so I could get some pictures before anyone stopped me. But they didn't mind after at all. The kitchen was so well done I decided to post the picture anyway!

See Y'all Soon


  1. Oh it looks so pretty. I would love to have a kitchen with such beautiful detail. Mine is really builder basic. Maybe someday. Hugs, Marty

  2. That is a beautiful kitchen! Love the red! I know you might be tired of your kitchen but I frequent your post to look at YOUR kitchen and your front door, and how you paint furniture, oh, I guess I just enjoy your entire blog! You have a wonderful talent and i want to copy your kitchen into mine! Thanks for sharing your home and your talent with us! Donna H.

  3. Isn't it a great kitchen!

    Donna, Thanks!

    I'm not tired of my kitchen. I still really love it.

    I am tired of the faucet.
    But I'm looking for a new one that will fit in the same holes. I even love the design of the rubbed bronze one, but not the company.

    Have a great day!

  4. What a wonderful kitchen! It would be incredible to have a space like that to cook/bake in...and I love red.

    Thank you for sharing your home & beautiful decor too!

  5. What a truly fabulous kitchen Donna!
