Welcome to our gallery highlighting a gorgeous kitchen remodel and renovation by Stacey Dresser Interior Design.
A particularly personal project, this is actually the designer’s own kitchen. The attention to detail really shows.
The resulting kitchen is a wonderful example of French Farmhouse style done right.
The kitchen was redesigned using bead board inserts, rope trim, decorative trim, and beautiful corbels. These particularly striking elements stand out amidst of wealth of rich materials and effective style choices.
After the original plain board inserts were removed from the cupboard doors, they were replaced with bead board. Afterward, the rope trim detail was added.
All hardware has been completely swapped out in favor of newer pieces for an extra layer of freshness and surprise.
Some of the boldest elements are the rich granite countertops seen across both sides of the kitchen, plus the large island. The granite is actually Golden Riviera Granite Azurite.
At the center is a large, ornate and classically styled chandelier, helping to anchor the space in a timeless style. The chandelier echoes the detailed look of the components across the kitchen, from hardware to cabinetry faces.
The remodel work, particularly carpentry and tile work, were done by Jack Wells of Image Remodeling and Construction. Cabinetry and island antiquing was done by Catherine Henry, of Faux Illusions.
We’re excited about projects like this because they showcase just how completely a redesign of one room can transform the look and feel of a home. The fundamental transformation completely shifts the perception of the home for the better.
We hope you enjoy this beautiful project as much as we do. The following gallery begins with a “before” picture to show just how much has changed.

Here’s the kitchen before the renovation. It’s a perfectly nice space, but nothing special. The cabinetry in particular is pretty neutral and unmemorable. The renovation completely changed this room.
Pulling back, we can take in the entire large, open space, which is attached to the living room by a series of broad archways. A dark wood dining table stands at left, while the kitchen is defined by rich granite-covered countertops.
The rich granite countertops make for a perfect foil to the newly textural, detailed cabinetry and fresh hardware. This creates an intricate palette of tones and textures to elevate the kitchen.
Here’s a close look at that beautiful rope trim adorning the cabinetry. This gives the wood a timeworn, lived-in look, and works perfectly with the antiquing. The bright red rooster handle is a unique touch seen on the island.
Here’s another great example of the small but detail rich touches found throughout the newly remodeled kitchen. The ornamental leaf design works flawlessly with the antiqued look.
The pillars between archways, leading into the attached living room, are decorated with these delicately designed sconces. These help foster the timeless elegance of the design.
Here’s a look at the kitchen island in the process of being antiqued. The wood work has been done, and the new granite countertop is in place, but the textural antiqued look has yet to be implemented.
The dining room table has a similarly antiqued appearance, fitting perfectly with the newly redesigned kitchen.
Artful pieces like this truly tie the room together, offering flash points of style to really cement the look of the newly remodeled kitchen.
Finally, we leave you with another shot of the entire kitchen, bursting with detail and rich materials. The careful dance of elements makes for a busy but balanced look.
