dare to be spare: my KITCHENJune 23, 2011
Sharing glimpses of my very
'dare to be spare' kitchen and yet to be styled
This not a styled photo shoot, btw.
(Notice there are no bowls
of fruit or of anything on the island?)
I snapped these quickly this morning.
Highlighting in bold
some of my favorite aspects of the space,
but my all-time favorite part:
If it's sparkling, I'm one happy mama.
We were going for timeless,
simple, and uncluttered.
(Reality check: I live with 3 men,
and this kitchen is
always cluttered with
*white oak hardwood flooring (fruitwood stain)
*solid maple cabinets (custom color)
*quartz countertops (ivory coast)
*pewter hardware (Thomasville)
*antiqued silver and crystal chandeliers
walls, White Sand by Benjamin Moore
trim, Dove Wing by Benjamin Moore
the table was ugly and less than $100 new...
i painted it and topped it with glass and now love it.
I have plans to add linen panels,
a rug, and slipcovers for the chairs.
And texture (a metal sculpture?).
It will never be 'done.'
I opted to spend part of my kitchen budget on:
A screen porch...we use this space and adore it.
Thanks so much for stopping.
