After: Parisian Bistro Kitchen Style
On a tight budget? Substitute butcherblock for marble counters.
A fresh coat of light blue paint gave the cabinets the old world look she was after, and the microwave nook was repurposed as storage for her stand mixer and cookbooks. Subway tiles with a hand-finished quality extends from the countertop to the ceiling, complete with an easy-to-clean pale grey grout that complements the kitchen's other grey accents. The shelves are made with remnants from the counter.
