Kitchen Upgrade Inspiration

a98d9a70eb9a-5
HAPPY FRIDAY! If you ladies follow me on Pinterest I’m sure you’ve seen me pinning away in the home decor section lately! We are making some tweaks to our kitchen and here are some inspiration pics I really love…..
I definitely want to get rid of our basic blinds and add some pretty roman shades.
We already have the subway tile, gray paint and white cabinets but I want to add some pendant lighting (if I can keep it within our budget) as well as some marble counter tops! 
These bar stools are exactly what I’m looking for!

    We are looking to move soon (my husband is a builder so we would build our own home) and I've been pinning away like crazy! We have very similar taste in kitchens ๐Ÿ™‚ Can't wait to see what you decide to do!

    Have you checked ballard designs bar stools? I think they had some similar to that at a good price. We are redoing our kitchen in a similar fashion right now. I am looking for pendant lighting just like that (love it!). So far restoration hardware has a good selection and pottery barn has a new pendant light similar to these… if you happen to find any affordable options for the lights, I would love to know!

    I have over half of those pinned on my decor board too! Haha. We are hoping to redo our kitchen (totally 1970's) soon, and we're going for a clean, classic, sophisticated yet streamlined look as well!

    I would give anything for a kitchen this clean and chic and spacious. Anything. Make sure to post some pics of your kitchen once the tweaking is complete! I love a good home renovation:)

    I have been reading your blog since I found out I was pregnant, following your weekly progress charts. (I gave birth in July to a baby boy!). I grew up in Orange County and live in San Diego now, just having completed renovations to a kitchen. Grey glass subway tile (love this http://surfacesusa.com/store/glass-tile-and-mosaic/urthglassmosaic/product/image/pebble/), white cabinets, and a quartz countertop (looks just like marble, but without the maintenance downsides that marble brings). We got some pendant lights that look similar to the ones from Restoration Hardware online, the Harmon, at Lighting New York (http://www.lightingnewyork.com/product/landmark-lighting-chadwick-pendant-66114-1.html) They sell the same lights at BBB and since the Lighting NY website has a price match policy, I got them for $200 each after mentioning that I had a BBB 20% off coupon (and bonus is free shipping, no tax). Picking out fixtures and stuff is daunting, but fun. Good luck!

    I actually just started a blog and ran across yours. I just posted my total kitchen renovation to our first home. I got my pendants at lampsplus.com. We are in a suburb outside of Chicago so I did go with darker floors with our colder weather and the fact that my fiance HAD to have them. He has a much more modern taste than my RH style so it was give and take. Also, I did do the carrara and we are a young couple that entertains all the time and my marble is really my biggest struggle. I already have stain rings on it and I am SO careful with it. I have also had our tile guy come back and seal it again! http://flawlessandfierce.blogspot.com/

    I'm in love with white kitchens but, we're renters so we have to live with what we have:) I think you should do some open shelving, I love that look!

      i love the open shelf look as well (we had that in our last home) I don't think were going to venture into the cabinets this time but maybe in the future!

    I love these kitchens! They're all so clean looking. My fiancee and I are actually looking to buy a home right now, and are thinking of flipping one. Intimidating, but when you see photos like this it keeps us inspired. Good luck!

    This is the right blog for anybody who desires to find out about this topic. You realize a lot itโ€™s virtually exhausting to argue with you (not that I truly would wantโ€ฆHa-ha). You undoubtedly put a new spin on a topic thatโ€™s been written about for years. Great stuff, just nice!
