Designer Sheila Bridges was just featured in this month's House Beautiful for Kitchen of the Month!
I love how brave her work is, and that she is not afraid to use bold colors or have everything match perfectly. I love how she made this small kitchen so exciting and interesting. She used an unexpected elegant metallic wallpaper that is one of her own designs, inspired by a painted ceiling she saw while in design school in Italy.
I also love how economical she is, finding the white marble subway tile online at homedepot.com and the Carrara marble for the counter tops in the store at Home Depot. She got them in polished which cut costs as well as painting the wood floor in Farrow & Ball's All White, instead of refinishing it.
My favorite part of the whole kitchen is the lantern by Allison Spear for Stephanie Odegard which Bridges found at a sample sale years ago that she pulled out of a box to hang here. Bridges says "Sometimes an unplanned moment ends up being your favorite thing in a room." I could not agree more!
For those of you about to remodel your kitchen here are some of the vendors Bridges used. She chose Osborne & Little's Killarney, embroidered with white ovals for the Roman Shade. The wallpaper is her own design, sheilabridges.com. The refrigerator is by fisherpaykel.com, the range by us.betazzoni.com, the sink by kohler.com, faucet by faucetdirect.com, and hardware by restorationhardware.com.
