Good morning, friends! I hope you had a great Monday. I will admit to you — I have a Fall candle burning right now… Don’t be mad at me, lol. This is about the time of year that I start itching for Fall and cooler temps. Bring on the sweaters and the hot coffee! Until then, I’ll be here with the scent of pumpkin wafting through our house.
I wanted to write a little bit about some thoughts I have about a kitchen refresh that I am plotting for our home…
I have some ideas about how I want to refresh this eat-in space as well as DIY-ing a couple of projects, like painting the cabinets and installing a glass-front door to the cabinet that holds our wine glasses and other pretty glassware.
I have been pining for some wicker-type chairs in this space. I just feel like it would look so much cozier and relaxed. The chairs that we have are working out fine. We bought them right when we moved in and I paid about $100 for all four. A very big steal and so far they have been great. But the longer we live here, I am craving different things than I did when we first moved in and I was purchasing a few things here and there as place-holders until I figured out what we would want long-term.
I found the above chairs while perusing At Home and I think they would work really well in our space. I also love the taupe-y color, which will complement a lot of the other furniture that we have in our family room and kitchen.
I am also so inspired by Melissa’s dining room at The Inspired Room, my all-time favorite blog. 🙂 Her home is the epitome of cozy and I just love how warm and un-fussy this looks. It’s so inviting. This obviously got my wheels a-turning. 🙂
This is a floorplan I created for our kitchen. I have wanted a white kitchen table for so long and an oval shape is also my dream, so by putting everything on a diagonal, it will make the space more interesting and will allow me to switch out the chairs and table when budget allows. We will paint the cabinets a white-gray-taupe color (still undecided) and add hardware. That’s pretty much all this room needs for a little refresh!
This mood board has me so excited. 🙂 It’s all going to happen very slowly but I have a direction and that makes me happy. I’ve been thinking about this lots and lots, so this feels very ‘us’ and also feels like home to me, even when I just look at this on a computer screen.
I’ll keep you posted on any progress that is made! Have a great day!
