The kitchen in my old house was very tiny. There were white
cabinets and white bead board, black granite counter tops and lots
of pops of red. It all seemed to work in that space.
Oh and although it does not show up very well, the floors were
wide plank pine with a light stain and finished in oil.
My new kitchen is bigger with lots of khaki paint, white cabinets and espresso
stained wood flooring.
The counter tops are Silestone in tan, brown and beige. David and I
had a discussion yesterday and we decided that we may have to change
the counter top around the sink and the stove when we pull out the
existing stainless sink and swap it for my farmhouse one and also
when we pull out the cooktop and install my Viking. So I well may
need to decide on new counters for this area, but some of the existing
counter will remain like this one in the pic above.
So here is where where my decorating thoughts are headed now.
See the pic above? Well this hallway leads from the breezeway into
the kitchen and breakfast room. Now look a bit closer ...
When I first put this together I stood back and thought to myself,
I am not missing the red. Now I love red and use it quite a bit, but
somehow the creams and the whites and the shades of the woven
baskets just seem so appealing to me right now.
If you were starting over, what would you do?
Your opinion won't matter to Bentley.
He's color blind.
