Delve into 2012

Ok, you can laugh at Michael for that title. Now that I’ve put last year behind me it’s time to look what I hope we can address this year. We’ll start with the…

Kitchen

This is our kitchen. It’s very nice, very nicely sized, and we have a great time working in it but it’s dark. Really dark. I’m generally not a fan of exposed wood cabinetry, especially in the kitchen. Ok, getting my hands on an antique barrister bookcase and I’ll be singing a different tune. I did a few mock-ups over the summer with a couple different color combinations for the cabinets and island, as well as the addition of white subway tiling. I hadn’t posted any of my ideas as we’ve been working on so many things, but a girl can dream, right?

The upper cabinets and walls are white. The dark grey seems to work best below as it would be pulling a color from the Corian® countertops. We have a piece of marble to fit on the island, which will be painted the same as the lower cabinets.

We were at one of the Habitat ReStores a couple days back and found a box of tiles for 5¢ a piece. There were only 100 and we haven’t measured the space, but for $5.00 I think we did pretty well. We’re going to look at the other locations to see if on the off chance they’d have another 50 or so, we would know we could make it work!

Mom wasn’t feeling this idea when I showed it to her over the summer so I’m not pushing it at the moment. Then again, it could have been because I also showed her a version with turquoise cabinets…

and all she could think was, “OMG do not want!” Perhaps it’s time to broach the subject again.:)
