In tonight's episode they kept the general layout of the kitchen the same (just repainted all the cabinetry). The cabinetry was white and the island base a robin's egg blue. Nice fresh colour combo. The backsplash they chose had some pink and blue tones in it...I didn't like it up close, but in the end I thought it looked good when it was on the wall. One really clever idea they implemented was using stair treads as shelves in an open pass-through. I am not crazy about the floor (multi-coloured large square tile pattern) but it brightens the kitchen up, which was one of their main goals. Another clever solution was to take a round mirror, knock the mirror out and put in a fabric-covered bulletin board. The round, oversized peice really worked in the kitchen.
Sarah and Tommy did a good mix of retro, antique and modern in this one without it becoming too "kitschy".
