Finally, I have photographed the kitchen remodel. I’ve been using it now for months and am very happy with the layout of the space and the materials and appliances chosen. The work flow, circulation, and proximately to the garden functions well. While seated at the breakfast bar, the view looks straight out to the back yard and the bay tree, through the new door. Also note the kitchen wall that has been opened up to the living room. In the location of the wall opening, there is a row of antique majolica Sicilian tiles in the floor, and the bricks from the wall are now being used in the back yard as the garden border and walkway.
The kitchen cabinets are Aran white mat and the work surface / counter top is quartz. The oven and stove top are both Whirlpool, the under-mounted flush sink is Franke, and the refrigerator is Samsung. The porcelain wall tiles are from the Azulej collection by Mutina. Lighting includes inset LED and a vintage painted chandelier. The wooden stools are modified Ikea bar stools. The buffet/hutch is a refurbished antique piece. See more DIY kitchen details here. The framed collage on paper is something I did last year using vintage sewing patterns found in a flea market in Slovenia. Below are more views and detailed images of the kitchen.
