Alison Victoria perfectly blends this couple's love of art and eclectic design with their need for more storage and functionality in the kitchen. The drab lifeless kitchen with its "surgery room" island and "poo brown" grout is transformed into a stylishly funky kitchen with a colored range and playfully modern chevron patterned tile. Homeowners can finally enjoy the view out of their kitchen window with a smart sink relocation to the revamped island. Rich wood flooring laid in a deceptively simple chevron pattern replaces old tile flooring and the unattractive cabinets are donated and replaced with a full sized pantry and cream-colored custom cabinetry. A banquet with a DIY chevron pattern painted on it accents the theme and adds just the right art deco touch to the seating area.
Two sisters who have been stuck in their family's hand-me-down kitchen are given a chance to make their mark on the space. Alison Victoria takes this mismatched kitchen down to the studs and starts fresh with bright yellow paint, vintage grey/blue cabinetry and white washed oak flooring. Alison revamps the layout by removing their awkwardly placed kitchen table and replacing it with an island - complete with a light grey-flecked Silestone countertop - perfect for prepping and homework. A small indoor porch is transformed into a light and bright dining area complete with a DIY table made from used cookbooks and a repurposed door. Keeping with the girls love for cooking and baking, Alison personalizes the cabinet hardware using tiny metal spoon, fork, rolling pin and knife themed hardware. To top off the retro-inspired look, a DIY clock mounted directly to the wall, made out of vintage hand mixers.
