Hi all! Today I’m joining a Valentine’s Day decorating blog hop and we’re all sharing some simple Valentine’s decorating ideas! If you’re landing here from my friend Joan at 2 Ladies & a Chair, welcome! Usually I don’t do a lot for Valentine’s Day, especially since my children are a little older now. But I do love a touch of pink as a nod to the holiday, and of course, you know how much I love flowers!
Happy Friday everyone! If you’re a regular reader, you know that on Fridays I usually do a “Friday Favorites” post, however, I have something special to share with you! Instead, I’m joining some blogging friends to bring you a Room Transformation blog hop! And if you’re coming here from Meme Hill, welcome. We hope that our stories of renovating, re-doing, or simply refreshing a space will inspire you and give you ideas for your own homes!
I know I’ve always said I’m a ‘white kitchens only” girl. Don’t worry – that’s still true! White kitchens will always have my heart. However, I thought some of you might be getting a little tired of seeing only white kitchens, so I thought I’d explore another look that I also really like. And that’s grey and white kitchens. Sometimes it’s grey cabinets in part of the room, a grey island, a grey hood, or grey walls, but the mix of a soft grey with white is so beautiful! And for me, they still count as “white” kitchens because these aren’t predominantly grey. They’re a wonderful mix of the best of both colors. They’re mostly white kitchens with just a touch of grey, and they’re gorgeous!
Red isn’t a color that works well in most areas of my house as all the blues and greens really throw it off. But since my kitchen is white, I can definitely do it in this room. In fact, one of the things I like best about a white kitchen is the fact that I can decorate easily for every season. Everything goes with white!
If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now, you know how much I love real art of some kind in a house! In fact, I think it’s so important in interiors that I made it one of the tenets of my series, Collected Look Essentials. However, one of the things I most love – an absolute favorite – is art in the kitchen!
I know, how original, right? I’m writing about white kitchens – hardly an earth shattering, can’t-believe-those-are-trending topic! But my love for them is deep, and has never waned. In fact, I have always had a white kitchen. Yep, I’ve had three kitchens in my adult life that I’ve picked and/or remodeled myself, and all three have been white. I had one before they were in style, I have one now that they are “back,” and I’m sure I will have one until the day I die.
