kitchens kitchens kitchens!

so, it looks like this whole moving thing is really going to happen.

contracts have been signed.  money has been put down.  and the fixing up of our current house... oh the projects.  every spare moment during naptime or bedtime or when julian is contentedly playing by himself for a few minutes is spent packing or taping or painting.

moving sucks.  there is no getting around it.  so to keep me sane, to keep me excited and to keep me from calling this whole thing off, i'm focusing on the fun stuff.  the new house.  the changes we get to make.  the whole point of moving is to not have to deal with renovations.  B U T  when you buy a cookie-cutter kind of house, you get to personalize it a little.  so we are making minor cosmetic changes.  adding a tile backsplash.  painting cabinets.  adding cabinet hardware.  nothing crazy.  so naturally, i'm just looking at all the dreamy kitchens over here on pinterest.  i've picked out my white tiles -- just gotta find the right shade of grey for the cabinets and the perfect bronze hardware.

and maybe convince philip to take out an upper cabinet or two for some open shelving instead  : )

that last one is my favorite.  except we aren't going the subway tile route.  lots of light, grey walls and cabinets, white tile.

and just to throw a crazy, eclectic so-alaina-style curveball, i'm really dreaming of a colorful pop of a window.  just imagine...

because an all white and grey kitchen is just way too boring.
