This home was in dire need of some TLC. We coined it "Portobello" because that was the paint color of the house when we got it. It was all one tone of brown, pretty much inside and out.
The kitchen was part of an older portion of the house, it was once a bathroom. A bedroom adjoined the space, but we knew we wanted to create a flowing open concept kitchen + dining space. We finished the space with white shaker cabinets, granite counters, stainless appliances, black hardware and a beveled subway tile backsplash.
We wanted to create a bright but bold bathroom. Our original tile we selected for the shower surround was a herringbone mosaic, but it failed to line up causing us to ditch and switch last minute. We found this elongated faux marble which had a more clean and classic feel and we ended up preferring in the end! We added the bold blue accent wall for contrast and more drama against all the white.
