Kitchen Renovation in an Historic St. Louis Home

Hey Everyone, I know I promised I'd share more on the little antique Kilim rug and where it is located, but we just got home from a trip to St. Louis (Dr. appt. for me that was a good one) and I wanted to share pics of the kid's newly renovated kitchen. I'm totally kicking myself because these are at night, no tripod, and no wide angle lens. Some are blurry and the colors are a little off, but their kitchen turned out so great I hope you'll just try to "imagine" that a professional" was taking these and not "the mom". so sorry...

Erin and Keith live in an historic area developed and built right after the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. Their neighborhood is just across from Forest Park and Washington University. This pic is from several years ago in the Autumn. It's such a beautiful area. I love it especially in the Fall.

OK, so on to the poor quality pictures. You'll see the "Befores" coming up shortly. Erin decorates with traditional elements that have a modern vibe. They've done an amazing job keeping the integrity and style of an historic home in their renovations.

You can see how old the house is from the recessed windows. 
I'm so jealous of her farm sink and subway tile...

There used to be a defunct Jenn-Aire grill on the far right,
 now it's floor to ceiling storage.

This is an Italian stove, don't remember the name.

Love the stove hood and the pot filler.

I have never seen subway tile this huge before,
love love that tiled wall and the floors,
 and wow, they're so shiny!

The cabinet on the far right, next to the fridge is a wine rack.
Forgot to get a picture of that.

It's so hard to get good photos here
 since it's somewhat of a "galley" kitchen.
Wish I'd been able to get these in daylight,
the colors of the paint and cabinets are a little off.

this is the heating and a.c. and vent fans,
and beautiful crown molding.

Adorable paneled banquette with storage and fun animal print pillows.
I don't know where she found that cute little round table.
it's a great "modern" accent to the "traditional".

antique French wine basket

She's such a sweetie, 
Erin, please forgive me for putting a fuzzy pic out there of you.

and another one (less fuzzy) where you aren't smiling...

And the Grandpuppy, Vinnie.
Such a little man. He loves his photo to be taken.

Here are the "Befores" taken last year with my cell phone. 
Sorry, these are even worse than the "after" shots!
At least you can get an idea what they were starting with.
I think this last reno was a partial one from the 90's.

 don't you love the cooler we brought?

Those are double ovens with a gas stove top to the right.
gosh, it's so dark in there.

pretty fabulous kids, amazing job!

Thanks guys, for putting up with my crummy pics,
hope you're having a great weekend!
