Real Housewives Redo

Traditional Home has an on-line spread showing the home of Jill Zarin, of Real Housewives of NYC  fame.  The new color choices are fresh.  I love the dining room’s new light and bright feel. 

The kitchen cabinets were painted white with wallpaper used on the flat panels of the upper cabinets.  The flooring and countertops were not changed. Mirrored backsplash helps to open up the tight space.  You can see the whole spread with before photos here.
