Kitchen Design Inspiration

Over the course of the last couple years while building our house, I can’t tell you how many fabulous kitchen pictures I have gone through for ideas. I have saved so many; I thought I would share some of them with you. Here are some of the pictures I drew much of my inspiration from

So you can tell I love white cabinets!

So here is my kitchen. Bare with me, I am not a photographer.

It wasn't hard for me to pick out the interiors for the kitchen. I knew the look I wanted to go for.
It just became tricky when it came to the minor details and staying within the budget. That definitely helped sum up some of those decisions for me.


 For the sink, I went with the was the Shaw original. I love the farmhouse appeal it has

My favorite piece is my La Canche oven! I love the French cook top cooking and the warming cupboard.


 I also went with polished nickel pulls and latches from Restoration Hardware for my cabinetry.
(Inspired by Christopher peacock)!

I picked a Sub Zero fridge that was a floor model and saved money there.

My first pick for my island lights were the Yoke Pendants from Circa Lighting, Oh the hours I spent on that website. I actually love there lighting. I purchased most of my lighting for the house from there, but that's another post.
I ended up with lights from Restoration Hardware that I
found on eBay, (another budget saver).

 I Knew I wanted Calcutta gold marble for the counter tops. Picking out the actual slabs and finding the right one was the hard part. I loved the idea of a wood island, so I chose a cherry top and had a dark stain put on it. I made sure that it would coordinate with the floors and the end portion of the island. Our island is a fair size so I wanted to break it up a bit, I decided to add this marble top piece at the end. I love to use it for baking and setting out food when I am entertaining.

 And here is our nook. Eventually, I am going to put in a bench against the window and get a new table and chairs for the nook and chairs for my island.

All things come in time.

Hope you enjoyed
Thanks for touring my kitchen!

Xoxo CC!
