Now that my mom’s kitchen is moving along, here are some inspiration pictures that have been catching my eye for her space. My Mom is not a “white” person at all, so I am taking bits and pieces from each picture that I like for her kitchen inspiration. She really wants lighter wood cabinets and a tan-colored granite. I have something in my head, but I’ve been scouring the internet for something I can physically show her. Update: you can see the progress we made here, and the end result of her kitchen renovation here.
In he above picture, for her, I love the mix of cabinets and the black island. My main goal is to design a kitchen that combines her love of a traditional kitchen with a more modern look. Even though white kitchens are all of the rage right now, I know wood will eventually come back around again. It’s funny how it all moved in cycles. We go from wood to white and back again.
Even something like a wood island can make a huge impact in adding a contrast of color and texture.
I think I am going to call the style old world-distressed-collected-traditional with a little Brooke Giannetti thrown in there for good measure :). I love Brooke’s eye, and adore her home and farm and she has great kitchen inspiration.
For my mom’s house, I can see lanterns, wood, brick,natural elements, in tones with greys, blues and aquas. She really loves wood and granite with a crystal pattern in it, and I am hoping we can find something she loves. Make sure you check out her finished kitchen here.
