A Little Design Inspiration for your Wednesday...

 

A couple of days ago, I wrote about the transformation of our Living Room as well as some of the current finishes in our home in my post, "Making His House Our Home"... And today I am excited to announce the beginning of our Kitchen Remodel! Actually, this whole idea started with me (of course) suggesting we remodel our kitchen. The conversations went something like, "Hey, I think we should paint the Kitchen cabinets white...it would really brighten up the space." Which then led to, "Well if we are going to do the cabinets, we might as well install granite counter tops." And then, "You know I love White Carrara Marble...I would love to find a way to incorporate White Carrara...maybe on the back splash?" And so on...

Now that we have a plan in place, I have been told by our team of contractors that the entire remodel will take 2 weeks....so I have prepared myself for 3. And if it takes any longer than 3 weeks I am in serious trouble because I promised my husband that it would in no way interfere with his beloved annual Texas/OU game watching party which is held at our house...so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Anyways, I've pulled together a few pictures that I've used as my inspiration for our new kitchen....

Our kitchen only has 30" solid front uppers, so instead of tearing them out and adding 42" uppers to extend to the height of the ceiling, my oh-so-smart friend Katie suggested having glass cabinets like these built above our existing cabinets. I am in love with the idea! In fact, I have already started thinking about how to fill these fun little cabinets. I'm thinking of either painting the back wall of the cabinets a bright peacock-blue color and showcasing some of my white serving dishes....OR...I might leave the inside of the cabinets painted white and find some really fun turquoise vases to showcase....what do you think?

Ok, let's face it...I am in love with this kitchen....from the white cabinets to the White Carrara subway backsplash. Of course, I love the wood hood, 6 burner stove top and the pot filler as well, but we'll hold off on that until our next house. :-)

We have selected an Absolute Black Granite for our kitchen...honed of course. I have been there, done that with Absolute Black polished and am ready for something a little different...
