Kitchen Update: Part Three
Over the course of the last two posts and now this one, I've tried to give you a glimpse into how I'm coming up with our kitchen design. I will admit that it's been much harder coming up with a design for my own kitchen than it is for me to design someone else's. I can sound so confident telling a client my ideas but with me as the client- I vacillate between this or that, these or those, I lose sleep and I hate having to consider a budget!
Maybe I should have started off my kitchen updates with my favorite kitchen inspiration photos, that way you would have known the direction I'm going in, especially since I asked your opinion on pendant lights in my last post. I did mention that my design would be classic and timeless, most likely black and white- I know, I know it's not uncommon but I love it and have always loved it. I see it as the perfect backdrop for my ever changing whims. It's kind of like I'm hard-scaping the kitchen in black and white (ie. cabinets, countertop, etc) and then the soft-scaping (window treatments, table linens and china) will shape the feel of the room as the seasons change, as my mind changes and when the holidays roll around.
The struggle I had was white with black or black with white or white on white you get the picture. Check out some of my favorite combinations below:
They all start looking alike, don't they?
I've deciphered each one, looking at every little detail and these are my sources of inspiration.
I have even more on Pinterest.
Now, the fun part...applying all of this inspiration to my own space.
Getting sick of hearing about the kitchen?!
Over the weekend I'll share a couple of Valentine's projects with you :)
Have a great weekend!
