Kitchen Ideas...A Little Preview

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Here's a peak at our new kitchen and a few of my ideas to lighten it up without actually painting. The green walls and wood cabinets are a bit darker than I am used to, although I really like them. Here is the "before" photo from the MLS.
Originally I thought a turquoise table like this would be great but my husband wasn't a fan...

So we opted for something colorful but a bit safer from Hurwitz Mintz.

I think Dash and Albert rugs are fantastic, so I thought this Aquinnah Woven Cotton Rug would pull in the turquoise color I love nicely...

When the boxes arrive tomorrow, I am looking forward to pulling out our cabbage dishes like these from Williams-Sonoma...perfect for Spring!

Since I am in the South, I am dedicated to trying my hand at entertaining with monogrammed linens...these from Leontine Linens are quite nice and match the color scheme...

For more punches of turquoise, I have started collecting the Le Creuset pieces in Caribbean blue. So far I only have the tea kettle but I hope to acquire a few more and start learning to make traditional New Orleans dishes in them. Plus, they look so pretty on display.
That's it for now. I have to go pack/umpack!


  1. Cannot wait to see the space with all of your personal touches and punches of color! Hope unpacking went well!

  2. It is going to look great! Can't wait to see your easter table set up!
