I am swapping services with interior designer Tricia Nicole Parker, so we met today for a kitchen design consultation. I was getting overwhelmed with all the color choices, particularly when I know we are combining two wood colors: Mullican St. Andrews natural or caramel oak floors ($3.60/sq ft at Flooring Discount Warehouse in Crystal Lake, IL) and maple Medallion cabinets with a cherry finish from Menards. We looked at a few counter selections and made preliminary selections for the wall color. I am so glad not to be on my own! So, we’ll be meeting again soon with larger color swatches and real counter samples (instead of the paper printed copies). It’s fun to “see” the kitchen coming together!
Here are two of the combinations we came up with, which will need some tweaking. I like the golden color on the walls the best, but it doesn’t quite go with the counter we selected. The other combination is great but the floor color is probably too light for the rest of the house. My husband and I will be getting samples of the flooring to make a decision there when we get closer to deconstruction.
