If you’re looking for design inspiration that will knock you off your socks…you’ve come to the right place! I am so excited about this room reveal! I absolutely love when clients are willing to take a risk and experiment with different design elements. In the butler’s pantry at the #countrysidecustom, our clients made some bold design choices that definitely don’t go unnoticed…and look amazing!
On the main wall of the butler’s pantry we chose to install a floral wallpaper. Okay, I know what you’re thinking, “wallpaper…isn’t that a thing of the past?” Yes, wallpaper can seem like a risky move, but if done correctly, it can bring so much personality to a room. Plus, floral patterns are making a hugggee comeback in the design world! With the right pattern, it can bring a room from plain and colorless to bright and lively in the blink of an eye! I can’t get over how amazing it turned out!
We went with floating shelves instead of more traditional upper cabinets so the wallpaper could be the star of the show. And when it comes to floating shelves, if you want invisible brackets, we highly recommend brackets that are mounted to the side of the studs, because they are going to be far more sturdy than anything you attach after drywall.
We did want to have a little contrast aside from the wallpaper, but wanted to keep things classic. Because of this, we opted for black granite countertops, a black undermount sink, and a matte black faucet from Moen. The cabinets are the same as in the kitchen, a white shaker style, and the appliances are all stainless steel. One of my tips about mixing metals or colors in the room is to make sure you incorporate in more than one place, so above the window we chose a chic black sconce, the perfect touch to complete this space, and a great way to add additional lighting. This helped to carry the black accents throughout the room, instead of it feeling weighed down by just being on the counter.
Like I mentioned in the #CountrysideCustom Kitchen Reveal post, I love designing cabinetry that not only looks good but is also functional. In the left cabinets, we added a built-in space for the microwave. This way it isn’t taking up countertop space and is conveniently stored away, no obnoxious wires to worry about hiding.
Sooo, that’s the butler’s pantry! I hope you enjoyed our second room reveal from the #countrysidecustom! The butler’s pantry was a blast to design and we are blown away with the stunning results.
