So as we near the closing on our new home, I am beginning to pull together a decor scheme. I'm currently focusing on the main floor and our master bedroom. I recently ordered a few fabric samples from Tonic Living in Toronto and am pleased with the direction I'm heading.
My goal for the kitchen is to have a bright, fresh and soothing space. We went with bone coloured cabinets, a marble-ish looking quartz and a java toned hardwood. Here is a pic (I apologize for the poor quality) to give you an idea as to what it will look like (the cabinets are not the same design as the ones we chose, we are just using this one for colour reference):
Another pic of the counter:
I'd have to say that the kitchen is by far my favourite room in the house, always. I don't know what it is about the kitchen that I love so much, but I enjoy sitting in there and just hanging out.
We have a reclaimed wood harvest style table that will go in the breakfast area (also in the kitchen) and I've chosen this light to hang above it:
For the window above the sink, I'm thinking of going with either a hobbled or rear tucked roman shade and then drapes for the patio door (which is off of the breakfast area). Both made with one of these fabrics:
By the way, Nancy over at Marcus Design recently wrote a fabulous post on roman blinds, definitely worth checking out.
I'm also really excited about the dining room. I've chosen this light fixture for above the dining room table:
And have fallen for this table by Woodcraft:
I have yet to see this table in person, but it is exactly what I'm looking for, so my fingers are crossed that it looks just as good in person as it does online!
Okay, I think that's good for today. I'll also fill you in on my plans for the living room, which is attached to the dining room and the family room which is off of the kitchen. Plus any other decor decisions we make in the coming weeks (I'm sure there will be plenty!).
It's quite a bit of fun decorating, slightly overwhelming as the decision process can take quite a bit of time, but fun seeing everything come together.
