Let’s get busy. Not.
It started off with good proportions. Can you have too much of a good thing? Yes. It’s time to edit. Bead board should be limited. It’s too busy on the drawers, doors and valance. The leaded glass is pretty, and would have been prettier without all the bead board. The window is trimmed out in large stained wood casing. Again, too much. Every detail is pretty unto itself, but all together it is too much to take in. The island is drop dead gorgeous!
Here is a good example of bead board well done. Base doors but not the drawer fronts. Two wall doors have clear glass. Only the tall doors have bead board. The bead board is repeated in the island end panels only.
Here is another good example using bead board. Drawer fronts are flat. Only the doors have bead board. Addition of glass door cabinets breaks it up for visual interest. The hood also has the bead board. A big don’t in this one is the use of wine storage above the refrigerator. Unless you intentionally meant to cook your wine, never put wine here, the hottest spot in the kitchen. The dedicated doggy dining area is adorable!
