My new kitchen.

Meet my new kitchen.
It is spacious and lovely.
I think it is dark and with Oregon being an overcast cloudy state, I wanted a bit more light....

It is great this way, but I didn't love how the floor and the cabinets blend together. I wanted the floor to pop and the cabinets to pop on their very own.

One of my favorite parts of the kitchen is the breakfast nook. LOVE it.
It is also that amazing honey color...
Just to much of something is never a good thing. hehe

We spend a lot of time in this area of the house. I wanted it to feel open, warm and inviting.
So we called Julian the painter. (Not gonna paint the cabinets on my own.)

And 1 week later we have ourselves a new kitchen.

So let me introduce you to our NEW NEW kitchen...

I feel like the floor pops.
The cabinets pop.
The island definitely pops.
And I happy as a clam.

I couldn't wait to post these pictures, but there are still some things that need to be done:

1. The pulls need to be added to the drawers.
We had silver knobs, but with all the light cabinets, I wanted to tie in the dark granite, so I bought 25 black knobs, and 15 black pulls.

2. The backsplash will be replaced with subway tiles.
But the biggest part is done, and I am in love.

The island is my favorite part. The color is Seafoam by Benjamin Moore. It is a gorgeous color. Not crazy bright, but just different enough that it takes your breath away when you notice.
There will be pulls on all those drawers and even the middle drawer that doesn't actually move. 
It looks like a piece of furniture and I LOVE.

Now I just need to put everything back into the kitchen, pretend I wanna cook again, and go run off the lbs I am sure I gained from us eating out so many nights!

But it is worth it. I love it.

So so so (!!!) VERY excited for you! It looks fabulous! I can't believe how the white makes everything pop. I even like the back splash more.
The island is such a beautiful hint of all the creativity and fun of Jen Scott.
I know this is just the beginning and you have lots of plans and ideas. I can't wait to see them all come together. Good for you, Jen. I'm so happy for you!

Your kitchen looks so fabulous, Jas! The dark granite countertop matched with the seafoam green island. I'm a bit in love with it actually. :) The lights look great as well, giving warmth against the bright color palette of the island. But the breakfast nook was the best for me. It looks very refreshing and inviting! Are you finished with the whole renovation, though?

Wow! Your new kitchen looks great! More vibrant, spacious and well-illuminated - the very elements that make cooking and other chores in the kitchen easier. If you don't mind me asking, how long did it take you to get this new kitchen?

Your new kitchen looks amazing! With so much space to move, I bet it'll feel great cooking for you family. All the lights are well-placed to illuminate the interior during night while the windows provide natural lighting at day. Just remember to clean it regularly, okay? Thanks for sharing! :)
