Hello my friends. As you now know we’ve got our kitchen guttered out and there’s no turning back – we are amongst the biggest renovating project our our lives ;) I’ve put together these photos as inspiration to represent my thoughts and plans for this kitchen. I think a Pinterest account would have helped to do this (soon soon) but this was just really fun to visually arrange my decorating ideas thus far. So I’ve had a wishlist for a while – not all of it made it, and some items might still get crossed off the list. But for now – everything is going pretty well….
For a long time I’ve dreamed of a clean white kitchen, with a modern crisp black and white feel with a hint of rustic natural woods. A little vintage here and there would get thrown in with the accents to create a timeless feel. And a bunch of fresh cut tulips from the garden in bright pink or yellow would occasionally appear on the new kitchen island – or maybe peonies – or whatever else the season brings into the garden.
Yes a white kitchen. If you knew me, you’d know it was not because I’m afraid of colour. I’ve lived with a lot of colour and I have a rainbow of it in my closet. I use it and work with it daily and still plan on bringing it into my kitchen – -but just hints of it. I love changing things around often and want my kitchen to be this empty canvas where I can re-accessorize in the accents, art, and teaboxes to reenergize the room depending on season or mood. Also, as a designer, I’ve learned that I have a need to surround myself with neutrals when I’m at home, just being or working. A clean, neutral, blank-canvas kitchen that is timeless and beautiful will make me the most happy each and every morning.
What are your thoughts on this look? Do you have some suggestions, tips or ideas? Please share ;)
