At Home: Kitchen Details

Happy Sunday!  I have enjoyed a week at home with the family as we all had February vacation.  Tomorrow it is back to work.  I love my job, but I really love my home and my family.  One of the reasons is the new kitchen.  We love coming down in the morning and making coffee.  The kids eat at the island and everyone is happy!  I mentioned last week that I would share details!  If you want to see the pictures of the overall room, go here.

Here goes! 

I used Wedgewood Gray in the kitchen and dining room...it is a pretty blue/gray featured in Pottery Barn and made by Benjamin Moore.  I love how it plays off the white cabinets and black countertops.  When we were building the kitchen, we decided to get what we wanted!  My first wish was a great stove!  I toyed with the 36" ranges, but they were soo expensive.  In the end, I went with a great, professional grade stove by GE...I love it!


That griddle is fabulous for Sunday morning pancakes and grilled cheese sandwiches!  As you can see, we varied up the tile behind the stove for interest!  I love white subway tile.

To make the focal wall of the stove and hearth, I had to put my microwave somewhere else besides above the stove.  We decided to build it into one of the cabinets!


My next wish involved an apron front sink!  I wanted a classic white kitchen with a country feel!  I love this thing...it is big and wide and pretty!  Steve picked out the faucet and we joke about how it can be a shower based on its size!  We adore it though!


We used cup pulls and knobs on our cabinets...love the shine that they add to the space!  We got them at Ebay for a great price!



I was orginally worried about all the blue and white because they are cool colors.  I have always been attracted to darker colors, but I think I wanted fresh start in this house!  To solve my problem, I used lots of black accents and popped red all over the room.  Red looks amazing with this blue color!




I have a thing for roosters!  I didn't go overboard, but did add in a few rooster themed accessories around the room.  This guy sits on my dining room table:


One of my favorite accessories in this radio.  It came from Steve's grandmother's house!  We play it every meal.  Remember that dancing I mentioned...music comes from here!


I am thinking that the space is a work in progress and will continue to be.  Hopefully, I will bring it vintage touches as times goes by!  We really love it either way!

  6. It is just so cute, Stace, and every detail perfect. I like that you built the microwave into the cupboard like that- makes it look more finished that way.
