Andover Street Kitchen 

This beautiful kitchen in an antique brick Georgian colonial in the Belvedere section of Lowell needed some attention to bring it to life. With the perfect elements of design, Laura Braun Interiors made the space look as beautiful as it functioned. First, Laura needed to address the dated oak cabinetry. Layers of primer topped with several layers of Benjamin Moore Simply White and the addition of cup handled and glass hardware brightened the space and brought it into the 21st century. Employing different styles of window treatments - roman shade, goblet pleated panels and café curtains - in a rich, buffalo check fabric in shades of camel and cream completed the redesign. [click any photo to see full-sized images in slideshow]
