our kitchen




Here are a few more from the photo shoot I mentioned earlier by the talented Ashlee Raubach.
I have shared a couple shots of my kitchen here, but I had to show you these beauties by a professional!


When we moved in we ripped out the existing granite splash and installed subway tiles up to the ceiling. The tile up to the ceiling adds a lot of drama, and with a tile that is usually the most affordable. I was really wanting our kitchen to stand out and make our condo feel more like a home.

** I have received a lot of questions about the granite, it was the existing granite when we moved in.  I installed the tile splash and the shelves.

We then installed the two shelves above the sink. I love having exposed shelves to be able to display and use our prettiest dishes! Most of them are dating back to our wedding gifts.



I found the chandelier at a consignment store, and fell in love! It was the perfect surprise to our white kitchen.


I have a thing for doors. All of the closet/pantry doors are painted in the house. I went with a soft blue to add some fun.

The runner is from West Elm.


The EAT zinc letters are help up by double sided tape from the hardware store, so we didn't have to drill into the tile. It was a great solution!


I wish it looked this clean every day! But really, I do love this space, it feels bright and clean and a great place to cook and bake for our little family of three.

UPDATE:

For birthday and Christmas (I get spoiled in December!) I got some new plates and bowls from family and friends. The plates I had been obsessing over and can be found here. The bowls are the same Anthropologie bowls in different colors.

not so good photo above by me

Very inviting, love it!

Question: the EAT letters that you have displayed. Did you drill them in the tile? Are they the think metal letters? (I think I may copy this) : )

Audrey Crisp said...

is it ok to say WoW? WOW really!

objectsofwhimsy said...

the chunky benchtops are great. They break up the white and with the floors bring natural elements into the scheme. Very nice indeed!

Jen@Organized-Design said...

Ok, so so beautiful. I love that you found that chandelier from a consignment shop. It adds such great character to a very lovely kitchen!

Coco said...

Sara Mueller said...

Gorgeous! I love the rug. Do you mind sharing the source of the rug?

Sara Mueller said...

Oh sorry I didn't read the whole thing. And where did you get your kitchen scale? Our kitchen in Peru will need some color.

nicole me oh my! said...

Sara - the scale is about 7 years old ... I'm sure you could find them on ebay or amazon? I bought it from Anthropologie. They might still have it?

Niki said...

I love seeing more pictures of your beautiful kitchen! Thanks for sharing! The chandelier is just so perfect for the space. I also love your painted pantry door and would to see more of the painted doors in your home; such a creative idea!

Cason and Marie said...

lehi + sasha said...

nicole, this is stunning!

i must ask, where did you get the cake stand from?

Stacy said...

Such a warm, inviting place to be. Beautiful. I too love natural light. That is one thing lacking in the kitchen in my current house. The kitchen is set back from the windows and is dark. I miss all the light coming in,

These are very elegant design modern simplicity and the color white does make the room a lot lighter and wide.thanks for posting this one I also love the fact that windows are huge as it covers the whole wall on one side.

I'm in love with your kitchen! My countertop is very similar to yours and my kitchen really needs an update. What is the color and brand of paint on your cabinets? Also, where did you find your subway tile?

HI! I just found your blog through mariakillam.com and had to say I love your kitchen. I have a couple of questions if you don't mind. Did you re-paint your existing colors and if so, what white color is this? Also the granite - what granite is that? Thanks!
