Kitchen Trend

Well I'm not sure about trend, but I'm on a roll with kitchen updates lately.  And this one's personal.  Yep, you guessed it, the kitchen is mine.  It is currently under construction, but I thought I would share with you the Style Board that I have put together for it.

Here's the rundown for my kitchen.
  1. Fabric for custom roman shades.  (I'm making them from leftover fabric from IKEA that's been discontinued.)
  2. Wall color.  (Color is Burnished Clay.  It's a really light gray by Behr Premium Plus Ultra.)
  3. Ceiling mounted lighting.  (Got at Lamps Plus.)
  4. Tile for Back-splash.  (The one on top is from a discount warehouse, and the lower 2 are from the ReStore that I did a post on back in February.  Click here to see it.  They are all shades of taupe gray.)
  5. Paint for my existing cabinets.  (The color is called River Rock.  It's a taupe gray.  Do you see a gray pattern going on here?  Have to say I'm in love with the color right now.)
  6. Black Pulls.  (From MyKnobs.com)
  7. Black appliances.  (I just put the picture of a fridge in to show that my appliances are black.)
  8. Blue canisters.  (The ones that I got are pretty close to these, but they are packed away so I used an image that was close.)
  9. Blue rug.  (This one I still need to get as it is a brand new item that IKEA has not got in yet.)
  10. Granite counter-tops.  (Now this wasn't my first choice, but since my mom was buying them for an anniversary gift for my husband and I, I couldn't complain too much.  They look great.)
Oh, and if you wondering, yes I put some branches in a vase in the center of the Style Board, because I also thought they would look nice in my kitchen. Whenever I happen to get finished my kitchen, in between my Interior Blueprint work and my fun time, I'll show you pictures.  (Yes, I get fun time.  Just not as often as I would like.)  I will keep you posted on the end result.  Please let me know what you think in the meantime.

Have a great day.
