Because Therapy's Expensive
If you follow our Instagram, you have seen photos of Shauna's home renovation, but it's been a while since we've given you a peek in to the before photos and all the juicy details. Plus, well, there were some itty bitty finishing things that needed to happen in the kitchen, like doors and trim and paint, before we were ready to say "ta-dah!". That and there were no floors for a good 4 weeks. So, here is everything you ever wanted to know about Shauna's kitchen and dining area.
So, bones are pretty good, right? Layout works, just needs some paint, new floor and to "Shauna" it up a little.
The biggest expense was to add the Terrazzo tile floor. Made in the USA by Terrazzio, it had a lead time of about 6 weeks but it was totally worth the wait. Original laminate countertops were switched out for white quartz from Vicostone and where there was no backsplash, a snowy white glass one was added. The all white palette allowed for some super fun color pops in the Big Chill appliances and the orange glass subway tile behind the cooktop.

Dining Space Before
I mean, we work here every day and these windows are fabulous. Shauna felt the second set of wall ovens here were unneccesary (there are double ovens to the left of the fridge). So it became the perfect place for a wine refrigerator and additional storage for her vast amounts of vintage barware. Painting the cabinets this bright turquoise not only separates the space visually but brings Shauna's signature colors to play in the room.
Dining Area After
Note that the dining chairs are not fully sitting on the rug. We get this question all the time and yes, that is OK. A bigger rug would not have fit in this space so we just had to make it work!
