well dressed kitchen: inspiration board
A break from our regular children's programming to discuss home decor! We are planning to break ground on our new home THIS MONTH! That means I need to get my creative home decor juices flowing. I'm the creative type, but my husband can't even pretend to share my enthusiasm without a real visual aid, so here's what I've got in the works: custom ivory cabinets (floor to ceiling), Virginia Mist brushed/honed granite (that looks just like soapstone), two banks of windows for plenty of natural light, an eat-in farmhouse table/island with loads of seating, stainless appliances, grey/green trim, microwave cabinet and island base. Oh-- and three custom pendant lights with mercury glass shades, antique brass fittings and reproduction copper twisted cord (AMAZING!). The lighting will allow me to more comfortably mix metals (appliances, faucet and farmhouse sink in stainless; cabinet pulls and hinges in antique brass). Now I am excited.
