Vicki Gunvalson’s New Kitchen

June 20th, 2016

This weekend, in between cleaning and furiously packing boxes for our upcoming move, I took a break and watched the preview to the upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Orange County. The Housewife series has always been my guilty pleasure, and lately I have been taken with Vicki’s home.  San Diego designer Leanne Michael did some updates for her a few years ago (I posted on her fabulous dining room renovation here) and she has done it again.  Her newly designed kitchen completely took over my focus.  From the custom island to the ridiculous marble counter-tops, I am obsessed with every detail.  Here is a before shot just to give you the full picture:

First thing I did this morning was send Leanne a congratulatory email on a job well done.  You can see more of her stunning work here.

    What did she use on the floors?

    Could you please tell me where you purchased the cache pots the topiaries are contained in? They are beautiful. They look like walnut or acacia with silver or pewter trim. I would love to purchase them for my kitchen.

    Beautiful! Could you please tell me the name of the cabinet paint colors? It looks like the island is a different color than the cabinets? And also the brand of the cabinet pulls?

  7. What a fabulous kitchen. You did an wonderful job!! What paint color was used on the walls and cabinets. Creams and whites are so hard. I want a light cream just not a stark white.

    Thank you,

      Hi Christi! LeeAnne Michael is actually the designer of the kitchen and she used Valspar Du Jour on the walls! Hope that is helpful!

    Gorgeous! Where are the bar stools from?

  9. Emily says:

    What are the almost Asian looking brass light fixtures over the table?

  10. Amanda says:

    Where did she get the gold cabinet hardware…love the color of it, doesn’t look too brassy

  11. Trisha Mangan says:

    What are the dimensions of the light fixtures over the island?

  12. […] Kitchen perfection…black + gold + white.  And notice the wood apron and legs on the island extension. […]
