My little kitchen gets its closeup and John Derian’s P-town home

Linda Merrill Little Kitchen

The Boston Globe featured my little kitchen renovation in today’s issue! You can click on the image above to read it as it appears in the paper, or easier yet, click here for the online version.  Thanks to Jaci Conry for writing such an excellent account of the project!  I’ve probably bored all my regular readers with stories about my kitchen, but if you’d like to see more of the final pics, such as the one below, click here. This kitchen was truly a labor of love. With the help of a friend, we touched every surface and turned a dated, frankly awful space into a charming French inspired kitchen with added counter and storage space, all new appliances (received in-kind for some blogging work) and a lot of elbow grease.

Here’s another little kitchen project design I’ve worked on that you might find interesting. 

I’d also like to point out that there was also a feature story on designer John Derian‘s house out in Provincetown, MA. It was pretty exciting to be featured alongside one of my design crushes idols. I was joking that I was featured with John Derian and one of us is referred to as a “design surperstar” – guess which?

Here are some images from the article, click here to read it online.

John’s house dates to 1789.

If you love John Derian as I do, you will love his Halloween Collection for Target.
