So far, 2017 has been pretty exciting. We just arrived home from an amazing vacation sailing the British Virgin Islands and during our time away, my dad was at our house tearing out the kitchen to kick start our year of home updating. Yay!
Our home is a quaint three-bedroom built in the 1950’s and has needed some TLC for quite a while. After debating for years – no joke – about whether to move or do some remodeling, we finally decided finding solutions for our small space rather than buying a house too big to handle better fit our lifestyle. No kids (yet), lots of travel, and less stress on cleaning bathrooms.
And once our decision was made, I could not have been more excited. We love our house and we can’t wait to give it some love and a new kitchen. Until I can reveal our before and after pictures, I gathered my inspiration gallery to share with you. Since this isn’t our “forever home”, we want to keep it classic and simple and were immediately drawn to dark, shaker style cabinets with marble counter tops and earthy accents.
The cabinets are ordered, the walls are blank and we need paint. But, we’re well on our way from a mismatched hazard to a beautifully polished space.
