Finished project by Lefèvre Interiors (Part II)

In my previous post I started to talk about one of the latest projects by our company Lefèvre Interiors, that was completed just before Christmas. If you are interested in the renovation of the living and dining room area of this family home, please click HERE to read my previous post and to see more of it.

Today Part II of this renovation, the redo of the kitchen and breakfast nook.

As I already mentioned in my previous post, the owners wanted to see their traditional home interior in a more contemporary style. They wanted a complete new kitchen with as many cabinets as possible, including all required kitchen appliances. The existing breakfast corner, that is an extension of the kitchen work area, had to be preserved but we were asked to add a warm and homely touch to this nook.

Again here we paid a lot of attention to the choice of the appropriate wall paint technique and to the finish of the oak cabinetry, all done by Dankers artisan painters.

We spent a lot of time in making the right choice of suitable lighting fixtures. Not only the design of pendants and spotligths was important, we wanted to give the kitchen and its breakfast corner the exact mood and atmosphere the owners had in mind.

The kitchen was completely stripped down and we started from scratch.

Let’s enter the kitchen.

Kitchen fabrics

Fabric samples for curtains and blinds. Together with Brigitte Garnier, we made a selection of fabrics we loved to see here.

Finishes

Finished oak stain samples by Dankers, options to choose from, to finish all kitchen cabinetry, breakfast nook panelling and wooden floor.

Blue de Tavel- Belgian Blue Stone

The kitchen counter tops are made of Bleu de Tavel, which is a Portuguese limestone with a grey to blue-grey background and pronounced, extremely fine, dark blue veins. We absolutely loved it in combination with the Belgian blue stone floor and the warm finish of all oak cabinetry.

Before/After

K4

Before : view towards the dining room. We opened up the wall to enlarge the passage to the dining room.

K5

The existing door is replaced by a steel double door.

K6

Before : the sink area with a view towards the dining room (opening to see here could be closed off when required).

We designed a new long kitchen isle that is now placed in the length of the area.

K3

We moved the sink to the side wall in order to create a passage towards the dining room.

K2

On this side of the kitchen is placed a new constructed wall to integrate 2 arched doors, creating a passage towards the entry hall.

T005

Construction of the wall with new arched doors : before – in progress – after.

K7

On the oppposite wall all existing cabinets were removed and replaced by a closed painted cabinet with an open kitchen shelving on top.

Inspiration 1

The design of the shelving was inspired by this picture of a kitchen shelving by Axel Vervoordt.

K8

The breakfast corner is refurbished and is given oak panelling and an oak floor.

Inspiration 6

I wanted to see a very simple design for the breakfast nook panelling, that is joined with dowels.

K1

Existing floor was broken up and replaced by an oak floor. The walls are now panelled.

I do hope you enjoyed today’s kitchen remodelling post !

    This is just stunning, some great eye candy for a very cold Friday morning, I am drooling over the photos with a hot cup of coffee! I particularly love the plain natural wood.

    Just gorgeous. Elegant AND warm. The natural materials will age so beautifully over time. I love the Portuguese limestone and it really does blend in well with the oak and Belgian blue stone. Where did you source the little ceiling downlights? There is little on the market which is aesthetically pleasing to me, but these are perfect!

    Beautiful, Greet. I really love that the kitchen, dining, and family room are not all in one. So common in the US now and I am really a bit tired of the open rooms. If one room is a mess, it all is. Great job!

    i’m in love with the finishes. gorgeous craftsmanship. and the breakfast nook! so sophisticated! i’ll be studying these pictures a little more to learn since there is so much goodness to take in. what finish is on the wood arched doors? i am always interested in how wood is finished in Europe since it looks so much more natural and beautiful in your homes there. thanks for sharing this renovation.
