It's happening! When we bought our house a year and a half ago and uttered the words, "it's fine, we'll renovate", we clearly had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. I've been working with our Architect for a couple of months now, and shit is getting real. Permits have been submitted, samples have arrived and we are ready to start construction in the spring. So now all that's left are decisions, so very many decisions (who am I trying to kid, I love this stuff).
My biggest challenge so far has been the kitchen. First, I have no idea what I'm doing, and second, I have very strong opinions about everything. This will end well, I'm sure.
You can see my tile and cabinet samples and some of the fixtures that I've chosen above. Graphic floors, high contract black and white with dark navy cabinets and natural wood floating shelves with touches of brass and cognac leather to help warm up the space. Below you can see a couple of pictures that I'm using as inspiration.
How amazing is this kitchen from Studio McGee? I want it, I want all of it. I'm not going to lie, definitely borrowing some of these design elements in our kitchen.
I love the white subway tile and the open shelves with the dark lower cabinets.
There is still so much work to do, but I can not wait for this reno to be finished.
