Design Challenge in CT!

by Mari Robeson in

Good Morning everyone! I received a Design Challenge from the very lovely, newly married and first time home owner, Karla in CT. She has a pass through from her garage to her kitchen that is in dire need of a make over. This is what she had to say:
"This space is all enclosed and is between my garage and kitchen. It is a mess. I don't know what to do with it. It has awful paneling and peel and stick "tile" in a god awful shade of blue. My husband put his wine refrigerator in the space and I have a bench. The rest is misc. things from my husband's bachelor pad - he randomly threw things up on the walls, including the fish and Derek Jeter wall hanging. YUCK! How can I create this space to be more of a fun and funky area? It leads out to our deck so its heavily utilized, esp. when we entertain - I want it to look more finished and reflect our style. Help!"
So on my "to do" list today will be to come up with a fun and funky design solution. I encourage you to submit your own ideas under "comment". (I know this blog thing is new to a lot of you but it's really easy if you just give it a try and believe me there won't be any test at the end.) Check in tomorrow to see what we come up with...dscf0002.jpg
