I'm drooling over this kitchen!

Ever since our laminate counter top catastrophe (discussed here) - and by catastrophe, I'm not exaggerating. Not in the least. Nope, not here.

Okay, so maybe just a tiny bit.

Moving on, ever since our counter top mishap, I have been searching through pictures of some of the most stunning kitchens in America. One might think that a peeling counter would justify simply replacing the counter tops... no way! Now, I'm coming up with all kinds of ideas on how we should remodel our kitchen. New counter tops mean we should make sure everything is exactly as we would like to ensure we pick out just the right color counters.

Are you buying my logic here? I'm practicing for my kitchen-remodel-conversation with Zach. Believable, I think so!

Here's a kitchen that I absolutely L-O-V-E!



Are you drooling yet? The floors, the counter tops ... everything - I'm smitten! A great designer, Amy Meier, was hired to update a rather small and old stark white kitchen. She brought an immense amount of warmth to this space. To see the before and after pictures of her remodel, go here. (You'll likely be surprised by how nice the kitchen was pre-remodel - however, the after pictures are truly unmatched)

Check out those leathered granite counter tops. I've already started searching for similar granite at our local shops.


 I love how she layered neutral colors - rich mocha and a rusty terracotta, linen white cabinets, brass accents - I think it's simply beautiful.


She also had this table made - I think the cane chairs add so much character to the kitchen.


Just thought I'd share my latest kitchen inspiration. I can't wait to get started on my own project!

And, thanks for letting me practice my reasoning with you. I knew I could always count on you to agree with me!

Much love,
