After yesterday’s wordy post, I thought it would be good to keep things simple by sharing some ideas I’m pondering for our kitchen. When we first looked at our house, it was my favorite room. Beautiful cabinets, open feel, etc. But, of course, I’m thinking of ways to give it a boost.
I’d like to add a couple of these inexpensive stools at the counter—just spotted them in Southern Living, and I like their industrial feel. I also think they would be a nice contrast to the white, cane back chairs we’re using around the table.
We have darker, traditional cabinets and I was originally thinking that I would paint the walls a dark charcoal gray to make them seem a little more modern. Lately, though, I’m feeling lighter, brighter walls. . .

And, a painted gray island. . .
(It looks nice with the darker cabinets behind it, right? Do you know how hard it is to find great inspiration pictures of kitchens with dark cabinets?)
And, I am in love with the colors in this little breakfast nook. I have the perfect windows to hang several curtain panels and I plan on going with a print of some kind. The end chairs in this photo are great, too. . . Probably a little too nice for our house at the moment.
