Well this is exciting!
First off, I’m finally getting back to blogging. I’m sorry I took such a long hiatus. With my job changes and career changes it’s taken me a little while to get back in the groove. Of course it’s always that much more special when you can share a project that’s near and dear to your heart. So today, I’m happy to tell you that I’m working on a MAJOR renovation and first up is the Kitchen.
Here’s a look at my initial vision for the space:
I have ALWAYS loved navy cabinets. My vision for this space is to actually have a custom navy island and it’s going to be MASSIVE. We met with our contractor yesterday and he was suggesting that we could actually build a custom island that will be 4×10 ft. Incredible right!? I’m actually thinking we’ll go with 4×9 but I’d love to tape it out and see just how big it’s really going to be.
With the navy and white cabinetry I thought it would be incredible to have gold hardware (something I’ve seriously been drooling over forever). I want to use a variety of pulls to make things look a little more custom, a gold gooseneck faucet (still on the hunt for this) and I’m currently debating between a porcelain farm house sink OR a stainless steel undermount. Would love you to weigh in on your thoughts in the comments below.
For now, I’m set on a simple white 3×6 subway tile. I’m debating if I want to change up the direction of the tile. Like this:
After seeing a recent Studio McGee Kitchen Install I highly contemplated going with a lighter blue island. This is the kitchen I’m talking about:
I actually did contemplate a light grey as well… and now that I’m seeing these photos I’m back to being indecisive. The first things we need to firm up will be the appliances and the sink so I’ve got time to make up my mind.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
LIGHT BLUE ISLAND
LIGHT GREY ISLAND
