Western Chic in Texas

Princeton is a small city located around 50 miles northeast of Dallas with a population of around 7800. Surrounded by the rural Texas countryside, many people in Princeton take their Tex-Western decor seriously.

What a Difference a Gallon Makes

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard it said thatthe best, fastest and cheapest way to change your decor is with PAINT.

Recently, this very true statement was again proven by my client’s kitchen makeover.  You should know, as you look at the before and after pictures, is that the ONLY difference is PAINT!


Before, the kitchen looked outdated with the existing wallpaper and white-washed cabinets.  Without changing the cabinets or counter-tops, it underwent an enormous transformation with just a brand new paint job.

  • The wallpaper and border were removed and the walls were textured.
  • Two colors were used on the walls to create interest and depth.

Sherwin Williams SW6257 - Gibraltar
  • The cabinets were painted in a dark brown color.
  • The island was painted in the same “Gibraltar” blue as the accent walls.

I LOVE doing color consultations…choosing just the right combination of colors that will transform the feeling and energy of any room.  This kitchen was no exception!
