Harmony



It has been a few years now since we remodeled the kitchen, but one of the significant design choices was the copper sink.  It was selected for several reasons, but one was the color.  









Even though this is a small older home, the living spaces are connected and partially open, so I wanted the kitchen's colors of creamy whites and grays to relate to the dining room's and the living room's white and wood finishes. As you can see, these large bookcases pick up the copper shade. On the other hand, the almost white table in the foreground and the other off white pieces in the dining room is how we selected the cabinet finishes.










This dining table also picks up the copper color, but the chairs pick up the kitchen cabinets' color.









And  best of all, everyone who visits says Lucy goes with the decor.  
(She is our rescue cat, and she came to live 
with us at fifteen years old.)




















The sink was just one choice of many choices made when designing this kitchen, but an important one, that contributed to creating three spaces with an harmonious feel on a holistic level.

    1. Thank you, Vee. It is. The trick is to wipe it dry after using it, because some drips can leave a bright spot on the copper, but it eventually disappears in a week or so do to oxidation. It doesn't show scratches or dents, and I don't have a dishwasher, so it is getting a lot of use. xoxo Su

    1. Hi, Bj. Thank you. Those are just seat covers. The chairs are cushioned. I bought them off Etsy. If you want the name, I can look it up. xoox Su

  8. Your sink is beautiful and flows in perfect harmony with your home. Your photos are so beautifully clear. I really need to learn how to use my Canon on Instagram. I just use my iphone camera. A lovely post Su.

    1. Thank you, Kerrie. It's pretty easy. If you have an i-phone just message them to yourself from your computer. I also have a little device that plugs into my i phone, and I put the memory card in that. I have to back up the phone, because it fills up quick even though I delete them, but my phone is several generations old.

  15. Your home is beautiful because your style is beautiful! I loved the remodel you did and your kitchen is just fantastic. What a great sink! I'm very ready to downsize to a smaller home. We have 3800 sq.ft. finished and it's about time to move to something more manageable. I'm keeping the things you did to your home tucked away in the corner of my brain for future reference. :-)

    1. Hi, Judy. Wow! That is a large home. I did not know you wanted to downsize. I would start with a really experienced agent, who can look at your home and what is out there and give comps. Their analysis will tell you if you have to do anything to the home other than declutter. They will also tell you how much to put in to get a gain. xoxo Su
