As a Winnipeg interior decorator, some of my most favorite projects have taken place in older rural homes. This was certainly the case when I met this client at last years Winnipeg Renovation Show. Often people who visit the show from rural areas of the province are surprised to find that I often travel to areas beyond the perimeter of Winnipeg
As you can see in the picture to the right it had been some time since this kitchen had been updated. Newly retired, my client was looking forward to staying in her older traditionally styled home and doing some updates.
As a Winnipeg interior decorator, I am always on the look out for unique things with in a clients decor that we might be able to keep and use in the new design. This was certainly the case when I noticed the existing original brick wall of this older home that was situated behind the old cabinets. My client had originally thought about dry walling over it and putting in some sort of decorative back splash, but given the nature of the home and it decor I felt this wall had to stay uncovered. I was happy that my client agreed with me.
This client had very tradition taste with a lot of eclectic furniture pieces, so when it came time for the kitchen design it was important to keep with a traditional style. The client also wanted to lighten up the interior of this older brick home, and wanted to have light cabinets. We selected a beautiful creamy cabinet, that coordinated beautifully with the slight cream in the brick wall that was to act as the back drop. Pictured to the right is the end result of this kitchen project.
