Thanks to my beautiful sister in law Alexa and my beautiful mom Kathi – we have a clear plan for our kitchen! They sent me this picture of a sweet kitchen…
…and gave us the inspiration that we needed for our kitchen.
Our current kitchen:
Yeah. We’ll paint the cabinets white, the walls a light gray, and add the other things on this moodboard (along with a wood floor, which will come next year)…
I fell in love with this tile(1) when I stumbled into this great blog, Knight Moves. Her blog header has this tile design and I really liked it until she mentioned where she found that tile and I thought, I MUST HAVE THAT SOMEWHERE IN MY HOUSE.
Then the hardware. I’m getting sick of digging my fingers underneath drawers and cabinet doors just to pry them open and getting afraid I’ll scratch the wood. Cool Lugarno pulls and knobs (3) will solve this problem with style. They will look dashing with our soon-to-be newly painted white cabinets and black countertops (which will result in something like 4).
On the top of our future wood flooring, we’d like to have a fun and bright rug – and Flor tiles in gold and cream(5) would work beautifully in this space. Bonus: we can decide any kind of rug arrangement, thanks to the flexibility of rug tiles. I think that would incorporate enough yellow in the kitchen, but if needed, we can always throw in some accessories like this tray from West Elm (6).
We have glass sliding doors in the kitchen (not pictured in our photo above) that we love because of the light shining through from our backyard all day long, but we don’t love the style of it. So, we will be bringing in french doors (7) and painting them black (just like we will for all of our interior doors).
But we’re definitely not adding these:
