Kitchen Ideas!!

As of this morning, we officially have an offer in on the house, and we think it's a pretty good one! So here's hoping it's accepted! As you can imagine, I'm just SO excited at the thought of remodeling an entire house & making it look pretty!! :) So, I had to go play around with some ideas!
  • Paint cabinets white & add brushed nickel hardware
  • Light sage accents- rug, curtains, vases
  • White subway tile backsplash
  • Stainless steel sink/fixtures/appliances (although we may go with black appliances)
  • Medium tan wall color
  • Neutral Ceramic tile floors
  • Capiz shell chandelier over breakfast nook
  • Add in some "earthy" elements & texture w/ baskets
My aim in any house we remodel is going to be to go with very neutral permanent features- floors, paint colors, etc. & add in color with easily removed/taken with us features- curtains, rugs, vases, art, etc.

So.. what do you think??


Endnote: Yesterday I opened up my mailbox to find this:Sorry for crappy cell phone shot!! (Isn't that little card she sent cute??)

A week or two ago I won April's Juicy giveaway! I'm so excited- this is the first time I'd ever won anything! So, thanks so much April, for hosting the giveaway! Go check out her blog if you haven't already!

& Speaking of giveaways, I'm very close to my 100th post & will be doing a giveaway to celebrate!! Be sure to check back in the next few days!! :)
