Kitchen Spotlight

A Slightly Pink Portland Kitchen

When Jessica and Erik bought their 1,500 sq. ft. Portland house, the kitchen was "almost entirely pink" and "atrocious," as they told Apartment Therapy in this 2009 House Tour. But a little pink wasn't so bad, as they discovered after their DIY kitchen makeover. In fact, it was perfect:

As the couple tells Apartment Therapy:

The layout was funky and made for a lot of dark, unusable spaces. It was also almost entirely pink. We knocked down some walls, took the doors off the upper cabinets, uncovered the original fir floors, and painted everything white except for the vintage Formica countertops. It's the perfect kitchen for us now.

The butcher block is from IKEA, the stainless steel range is from Peerless Premier, and the Jadite knobs and light fixture are from Rejuvenation.

Now that's what we call pretty in pink!
