Even though the house isn't anywhere near finished (the living room addition is 95% done construction wise). I've decided to post a few progress shots to show you where we are headed and give you an idea of the space I'm working with. So, keep in mind most of the house is not decorated, and I'm an awful photographer, seriously awful!
The kitchen is nearly finished, we just have to install the backsplash and a very little bit of cabinetry detail above the fridge as well as open shelving flanking the vent hood.
FYI the Marble is Bianco Venatino, polished.
This is the south wall, we still have to install the woodburning stove where those 2 leftover cabinets and the pile of construction hodge-podge is stored.
Living room area is the north west corner of the house which I haven't even attempted to decorate at this point. The list is too long to describe in this post. For you design geeks out there I'll be doing a whole seperate post on this.
Sink is from Vintage Tub and Bath and all the appliances we bought scratch and dent through Elite Appliances.
Lights are from Anthropologie.
Restoration Hardware counter stools.
I adore our stove, our kitchen in general. I fell so blessed to walk into the space every day! We are putting open shelving all the way to the ceiling on both sides of the vent hood.
This lamp was a local thrift store find along with the little sail boat, and the porcelain storage containers were a gift years ago from my best friend.
Again, book ends were a thrift store find that my husband picked up along with the brass whale paper weight, and the other trinkets and books have been collected over the years while traveling. The hand blown glass vase was a gift from my dear friend and owner of Metallo Gallery, Cassidy.
I have to say I LOVE our kitchen desk! The painting above was given to me for my birthday by the very talented Nigel Conway.
I'll be posting the play room, our daughters room and the 1/2 bath next week, as well as the progression of the bedroom addition we are in the middle of building.
I would love to hear your opinnions, suggestions or anything else you have to say.
