Kitchen Inspiration

Hey guys and happy Tuesday!

Last week I mentioned that my kitchen is going to undergo some upcoming changes and I am super excited about it. You can read all about the changes here.

This image pretty much sums up the changes:

In my last post, I also mentioned that I had decided on my granite for the new countertop.

I have selected Giallo Ornamental, which is a beautiful creamy white , with specks of brown, tan, and gray throughout.

Here is my actual slab that I selected:)

I also decided to keep the backsplash simple and will be going with a white subway tile.

Since making my selection, I have been a Pinteresting fool and have found some awesome inspiration!

Chris - The white subway tiles brighten up the room and look good with the dark cabinets. The counter top ties both together.:

dark cabinets with white counter and backsplash are striking:

Now to find some tile. That is definitely not as easy as I thought it would be. I will be back later this week with a #1room30days update, and next week with more kitchen plans and updates!

Until next time!
