Kitchen Sketch and Products of Note
In Cheryl's initial sketch of Miriam's kitchen, she made sure to focus on the kitchen's color scheme, which features light blues, greens and greys. As the design progressed, the white appliances were swapped out for models in stainless steel, and a beautiful chandelier was hung above the island. For more about some of the products used in Miriam's kitchen, read below.
