Don't you love it (& her stockings!)?!?!?! Our kitchen cabinets are currently in their natural wood color but we're planning on having them painted white. And thanks to my favorite magazine, Country Living, I have fallen in LOVE with carrara marble countertops but turns out those mothers are pretty darn expensive. The countertop pictured in the kitchen above is $69/square foot which is still nothing to jump for joy for, especially when you've got as much space to cover as we do, so we will probably do a bunch of researching before we take that leap of faith. One thing we're definitely sold on though is white subway tile for the backsplash- doesn't it look great in the inspiration kitchen above?
So, we're definitely having the cabinets painted white & we'll have subway tile for the backsplash. Lots to do still for deciding on a countertop. Then there's deciding on a wall color. Our kitchen is open to the adjoining dining & living rooms which are painted a pale yellow shade & we just haven't come to a conclusion on what color would compliment that for the kitchen. Do we stick with the same yellow or maybe a shade or two lighter (or darker)? Or maybe go with the light green that's pictured in the inspiration kitchen above? In that Country Living article I mentioned, the paint color they used with the beautiful white carrara countertops was Valspar's Silver Leaf (I think)- but doesn't it look really purple in this swatch?
To quote Dakota Fanning, "Decisions, decisions." Well, while you're thinking about that, try this one for size- who in the WORLD names paint colors? Case in point-
This is glowing green?
