See, I told you more pics of the new house were coming! I’m so excited to be sharing our dreamy gray and white kitchen with all of you. It still feels very surreal that this is MY kitchen. We worked so hard over the past 6 years, saving, praying and being patient and I’m so glad we waited for the right home at the right time.
Before I dive in, a few notes upfront. The kitchen was already completed when we purchased the house, so I take no credit for the beautiful design and I unfortunately don’t have any sources for you. All I did was buy a fridge and accessorize. It always takes me so long to do a room reveal because I always have a running list of ‘I need to add this, and DIY that, and add more here”, it’s a never ending list but one of my goals with this house is to show you more in progress/current photos because let’s face it, there will allllllways be a ‘to-do’ list :)
Welcome to our kitchen.
This kitchen was a huge selling point for us. I have always dreamt of a white kitchen with gray walls and dark hardwoods, so naturally when we stumbled upon this house I was sold at first sight. I love the detail work that went into this kitchen, especially the dramatic molding and tile on the ceiling and tall pantry door.
The chandelier is gorgeous, but I’m still getting used to it. For those of you who have followed me for a while, I have a more industrial style, I would even call is more masculine, so all the bling in the kitchen is a little out of my comfort zone. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it, but I’m also trying to find ways to incorporate more of ME in it.
Before we saw this house, I had never seen mirror subway tile before. Apparently it’s becoming a new trend and it’s so fun. It looks a little overwhelming in pictures and yes, it’s extremely hard to photograph it, but it actually doesn’t seem as over-the-top in person. Several of our friends have mentioned that it feels really different in person than in pics and I have to agree. In a good way.
I love adding little decorative details to a kitchen, especially when we have space to fill! I’ve never been one of put tons of family pictures around the house, but it’s really nice to have a few family pictures in a room where I spent 75% of my day (I swear, I feel like I live in this room all day, but I can’t complain too much).
I see galvanized vintage food scales a lot, but I wanted something that fit the style of our kitchen. I was so excited when I found this stainless steel one on Amazon.
I love having open shelves in our kitchen. They are one of my favorite features in any kitchen, I put them in our old house and if they weren’t here already I would have put them in myself! Phew, this saved me from adding another DIY project to my list:)
I added a lot of sentimental elements to our shelves. The silver platter on the upper left shelf was actually our ‘guest book’ at our wedding. We had each of our guest engrave the platter instead of signing a book and it’s so special to finally have a space to display it.
The two silver Nambé bowls were wedding gifts and the wood plate and antique butter churner were both my grandma’s.
I couldn’t leave you hanging without seeing the kitchen lit up. So here are a few more pics.
