I chose our kitchen design (the most important room in our home) last night!
I thought a lot about how we live. I want a warm home where friends and family can be with me while I cook. I want my children to sit and tell me about their adventures while I make them after school snacks. The point of this space is for serving family and friends. I wanted something open and inviting.
I posted my chicken scratch kitchen scheme for you to see. This is true scratching folks.
We have a separate dining room for our formal meals, which helped me decide on the open concept kitchen/family room area.
Here are a few inspiration photos for how I would like our kitchen/living area to look. Our cabinetry will be some warm variation of white/cream.
This kitchen is perfection to me. I especially LOVE this vent hood. I hope I can get one similar. And I definitely want a backsplash of white subway tile.
And this cutting board above the trash is genius! (photo: House Beautiful)
I love this lantern for above the island (currently on sale at Pottery Barn).
And I plan to head over to my favorite shop, The Sisters Garden, for an authentic harvest table (photo: Pottery Barn).
Finally, I like this casual family room and would love for ours to look like this.
While I still need to decide the details from countertops to appliance packages, I am so excited to have a direction and a floor plan.
PS If any of you have any good advice on soapstone vs quartz vs granite countertops, I would LOVE to hear it.
