Behind the Scenes: My Kitchen Inspiration
I'm SO excited to give you an inside look at what we're planning for my new home! I've been thinking about what we would love to change over the last 10 months since Hurricane Harvey hit, and now that we're at the demolition stage, it's all becoming so real!
As you can see in the sketch above from our amazing architect, Carlo DiNunzio, I'm keeping the galley format of the kitchen. But we're expanding the space into what was originally a sitting area. That will give me more cabinet space and will allow me to add a wine service area and a fabulous island.
You can just see a peek of the Calacatta Gold marble we had in the original kitchen. I loved it, but it didn't survive the flooding and then the demolition. I'm thinking about transitional cabinetry with porcelain or quartz for a more modern look. Oh, and do you see those old french doors on the left?
I'm thinking of adding a folding wall from Nana to really open the kitchen up and flood it with light! You can see an inspiration photo above - more modern than the kitchen I'll have, but you can see how beautiful a folding wall can be.
I actually found another bit of inspiration in the house I designed for Brother vs. Brother on HGTV! I loved the floating shelves we put into the coastal kitchen, so I'm considering having this idea in my new space, too.
I may have an all-white kitchen - it's just so classic and clean. But I am open to color, too. What color would YOU choose for the cabinetry? So many decisions and so many wonderful ideas! Stay tuned for the final results later this year!
