Thank you, Ken and Barbie…Hello, Mermaid House.

You’re greeted first by a lovely Mermaid…”Hello”.


…now open the front door…


Open concept fills the air…swirling blues almost overwhelm…great sight lines to the pool…and wide expanse, but cut short by those swampy, cold, dated kitchen cabinets.  With the total decorating budget of $4,000, the cabinets were staying, but needed some severe overhauling.  We removed the border, frou-frou curtains, clutter, and cleaned….kitchen2

…then we had a chat with KEN.

Hello Ken – Surfer Dude Ken…counterpart to Barbie (I always thought he was a great accessory), but that’s another story….Ken to the rescue…or rather, Ken’s sunglasses – the perfect blue to transform the kitchen…POOL by Sherwin Williams….take a look.



Bright white upper cabinets with blue on the lower ones….a little shock of blue surprise when you round the corner of the kitchen…and it keeps clean sight lines for the illusion of more space…Embossed Tin for the back splash adds lots of light, sparkle and shine; the round embossed shape reminds me of a pool.




I like it.  Thank you Barbie & Ken Family…Enjoy the Mermaid House….MAGICAL!
