We are back this week with another exciting reveal from The Teasley Project! We are so excited to reveal the Teasley kitchen remodel! We wanted to be intentional about honoring the Mediterranean-style architecture of the home, so incorporating some of the most beautiful hand painted tile was the perfect amount of Mediterranean-influence. Making the home flow and feel cohesive with the rest of the house is a top priority when designing a home. If you missed the master bathroom reveal, you can click here to read it. One significant design element that helped give this space a more modern, warm feel was removing some of the detailed trim on the vent hood and wrapping the bottom with an extra wide plank of maple wood. We used Benjamin Moore Creamy White on the perimeter cabinets, and only replaced the cabinet doors & drawers. Footprint wasn’t changing, so there was no need in this case to demo everything.
If you know me, you know that I’m not afraid of dark cabinetry in a kitchen. We brought some color into the room by painting this coffee/wine bar, Downpipe by Farrow & Ball. The shade of blue compliments the neutral color scheme of the rest of the kitchen and really draws your eyes to this fun little space. If you are a white kitchen cabinet lover, an area like this is fun to take “risks”on and add a more custom look to the overall design.
Mediterranean style is warm and rich with lots natural colors and materials. We added a variety of different wood tones to this kitchen. Deep, rich tone for the island, gives a nice contrast to the honey wood floors and the light and airy venthood. Ultimately, creating a cozy, welcoming atmosphere.
Artistic tiles are a staple of mediterranean style. It’s not often we get to use a patterned backsplash for a kitchen, so we were excited for the chance to finally be able to use a fun tile that is reflective of the overall style of the home. We used a more subtle, neutral tile for the kitchen backsplash to keep it from looking too busy and opted for a bold, colorful tile for the coffee/wine bar. We love mixing metals, so we kept the theme of black and brass metals that we used in the bathroom, here in the kitchen as well. Oh, and we can’t forget about the most beautiful copper pendants ever that are over the island, which really elevate the space. I have dreams about these pendants! 🙂
We are so thrilled with how this kitchen turned out and are pleased that we were able to make the interior more cohesive to the exterior mediterranean style. We hope you enjoyed and found some inspiration from the Teasley kitchen reveal!
