If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a little glimpse of our kitchen yesterday—and a surprise. I knew from the start I wanted a classic white kitchen. But, I also knew that if we were starting from scratch and designing the whole thing over, I had to do something that felt like me. Enter emerald green cabinets:
Does it feel a little scary to commit to the emerald on custom cabinets? Maybe for about five seconds. Then, I decided that if I was going to do it, then I was going to go bold. I cannot wait to see them with the doors and hardware. I’m happy already!
This is the area where the TV will be and on each side is a pantry. See the full layout here.
To tie everything together, I’m using this wallpaper in the same emerald green on the opposite end where our breakfast nook will be:
The faucet and the honed granite countertops were installed this week, too! Getting so close and so very sick of eating takeout. . . Our kids are starting to moan when we say we’re having pizza.
And, finally, I wish I didn’t even have to say this, but here’s a quick disclaimer. I’ve had several questions/comments already about sources and costs, so here’s the deal: we’re paying for all of it. Like every bit of it. (You know, the old-fashioned way.) I’m sourcing a few things myself, and a lot of the other stuff, we’ve had custom made and/or are ordering through the contractor and designer. So, I might not have direct sources for everything.
It’ll make some people happy that nothing is sponsored. And, other people will think we’ve spent too much. If I’ve learned anything from seven years of blogging, it’s that there’s no pleasing everyone at one time. But, I’m sure the majority of you can appreciate that I’m an almost 40-year-old woman, raising five kids, and I’m finally getting the kitchen I’ve always wanted. The one that works for us. Alright, speech over. :)
