An up to date pic. The countertop is next for a makeover. But the cabinets got a fresh coat of paint, and I put all the cabinet hardware back on tonight after the fresh paint. We've decided on either granite or black surface for the countertop.

I initially found the fabric on Waverley and then they supplied me with the name of the carrier here in Halifax (Chintzy's). It was $55.00 per metre, originally. I got it for $25.00 per metre. Ahhhhhhh... it was worth it! When I love something that much I never mind splurging. I still love it.

As for the English Butler... they are here in a few of the malls. I do believe they have a website.

I did the roman using a fabric from Waverley but not the lampshade. I bought that the way it is, believe it or not, at the English Butler :-) I love that they are perfect matches. It was quite a coincidence.

Count me in with the rest! you're kitchen looks fabulous. I love the window treatment. It's very dramatic and so blessedly un kitcheny. Now you'll just have to cook in the garage or the shed so it'll stay beautiful forever.

ALL reds will look different depending on the type of primer you use. Painting over white will give you a less intense shade while painting over a darker primer will give you a stronger intensity. It's the same with any colour. :-)

As for the tiles on the backsplash, they are not real tiles. They were faux painted on. I didn't want to go to the trouble of putting up new tiles when we knew we'd be replacing the countertops this year. So, I did a faux brick tile. her'es a better shot of the backsplash. I will most likely use stainless steel for the backsplash when we replace our countertops. OR, a similar cream colour as the cabinets.

You're right, the red is Cranberry Zing. I used a medium gray primer to help keep the red very deep and dark. The cream colour is Dutch Boy's White Castle. It's my fave of all the warm whites :-)

Jazzie, more than likely it will be the arborite or a faux version of corian... it's not arborite, but it's not corian... I can't remember the name of it. It comes in only a few selections so far. I'll see if I can find it.

I agree the dark counters would be gorgeous...does anyone have a rough idea what granite counters run? I know we did all around the fireplace front & it was ridiculous...I can't even imagine where counters would start.

love the lamp on the counter. So unexpected. I think a black counter will look great.
