In our remodel, I know I want to paint the existing perimeter cabinetry a white or off white. The new island will be painted a blue/grey. I want thick marble countertops and a checkerboard floor (inspiration here and here).
I’ve been thinking a lot about what kind of backsplash I want. This photo (from the February 2011 Veranda) from a Suzanne Kasler design has inspired me both in the backsplash and lighting categories. Love it!
Wouldn’t you love to call this kitchen your own? I just have to convince my husband that our perfectly good Viking backsplash needs to be replaced. While stainless looks nice….I find it a bear to keep clean. I really want my selections to be as practical as they are beautiful. Fingers crossed, we’ll be here for a long while!
Interestingly enough, my mudroom inspiration also comes from this same home.
As a side note, I feel like I am constantly apologizing for my lack of posts (and commenting on other blogs) these days. The combination of work really picking up (spring refresh, anyone?), more commitments with the kids, trying to get myself involved in our community, a husband working a TON and a baby who has started rolling over in the night and then freaking out because he doesn’t know how to get back to his back….makes this woman a wee bit tired! But, it is all good. I am blessed.
Here’s to being back on Monday with more time and more thoughtful posts! Happy (early) Weekend!
