Open for Business

I had to share some photos from a recent visit to my friend Kara's house out in Colorado. They recently overhauled their kitchen - a project that included new appliances and cabinets, creating a laundry room off the side and - oh yeah - widening the room and knocking a hole in the wall to create a more open feel!

So just a small, tiny project to take on. . .
The IKEA cabinetry and stainless steel cabinets play off each other so well. I love the frosted glass to house glasses, bowls and food for an airy feel without having to say, "hey, look at the brand of cooking spray we use!"
The extended length open shelving on the opposite wall highlights crisp white dishes and some adorable Anthropologie finds.
Thanks for the inspiration should I ever get the chance to renovate a kitchen! Might be sooner than we think as we start some heavy house hunting in the coming months. I've already seen a few gems that we'd like to get our hands on . . .all in good time!

  1. Awww, I didn't even know you were taking so many photos of the kitchen! :) Glad you like it and I can't wait to hear how the house search is going.
