Derek's Kitchen

For some reason my house has been a hot topic of conversation lately, probably because I have been bragging about all these new free appliances my roommate got us. More on that later.

So I thought you might enjoy seeing the evolution of my kitchen. It all starts in January 2007 when I first went to look at the house. I promise you the kitchen was the least offensive room in the house, even with the sparkly gold cabinets and bland off-white appliances. Here is a photo of the kitchen and dining room with my home inspector standing in the middle of this mess:

The woman who owned the house was a huge fan of over decorating, as you can see here. Now maybe this is your style but it certainly isn't mine. And most of what I wanted to do with my mid-century Cape Cod was to return it to a more mid-century look. That is not what she was going for. Clearly, she craved "country kitchen." And how!

We swapped out the light fixtures, replaced the door pulls with something more period, and painted the kitchen. Mike came up with the idea of painting the back wall and the cabinet fronts blue and keeping the rest of the walls and cabinet sides a pale taupe through the kitchen and dining room since it has an open floor plan between the two rooms. Some listeners on my Facebook fan page think the kitchen is "too blue" but I promise you, even though it is a strong color, it is the accent color in the room.

Mike works for a production company that makes videos and they needed a kitchen to film a cooking show in, sponsored by Samsung. And the best part? Samsung would be supplying free appliances for the shoot and we could keep them after they were done. So, in the week before Thanksgiving, all new stainless steel appliances were installed. I bought a new dishwasher to match.

Now the kitchen makeover is complete. And to see it in action, you can check out the cooking show they filmed in my kitchen! As you will see in the video the blue is not too dominate at all and I think the kitchen looks amazing. But judge for yourself. It's short and it has some good ideas for remaking those Thanksgiving leftovers. Enjoy! And post your comments here!
Happy Thanksgiving!
