Kitchen Progress

kitchen progressOur kitchen is really coming along nicely now!

I’m excited about being able to cook again. I want to bake cookies and wear my adorable apron from Sommer Designs. I want to make lasagna from scratch (we make really good lasagna – homemade sauce and all). I want to make yummy salads with walnuts and strawberries and spinach. I’m ready for a kitchen.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Our counters won’t be here until next month sometime, which also means no kitchen sink until then. Still, we’ll have everything else and the space is actually starting to feel like a kitchen again.

Here are some of the details:

A quick picture by picture explanation… There are two windows and a door to the backyard, so I was hoping (remember, I can’t sew) to make something for them with the Amy Butler fabric I bought. The green knobs are from Anthropologie. They’re a little much, but I think they’re really cute. I figure that by using the more classic drawer pulls, that will tone down the crazy knobs! We’ve had that clock for a couple of years now, and I think it will look good in the kitchen. Then there’s the overall look in the middle – a doctored photo from the IKEA website (those are the Lidingo cabinets). The light: nothing amazing, but nice enough. The countertops will be Saddle Brown Zodiaq (quartz). The stove and all of the appliances are stainless steel. And then there’s my print from The Black Apple (with an egg – how perfect for the kitchen, right?).

Soon. Very soon now.

    did you install the cabinets yourself? if so, how hard was it to do? we’re thinking about putting in an ikea kitchen…

    I’m jealous of your amazing looking plans! You are the master of Photoshop, Illustrator, and whatever else you’re using to make those awesome pictures. You should start doing Power Point design presentations… like Al Gore, but more stylish.

    We have such similar tastes, same cabinets and we have a Nelson clock too ! Though as a designer you have an unfair advantage :)..

    What are you doing for flooring?
