We are down to the last details of our New Office Journal, so watch for more posts than usual in the coming weeks! And I love a good kitchen design so that’s today’s topic. Fortunately, we had enough space in our new studio without having to blow out any load bearing walls to create a cozy space for entertaining – or just stepping away from the desk. We are down to the final elements
So here is where we started with the kitchen. Well, not really STARTED. The cabinets, sink, countertop, etc. were all (obviously) already installed and just waiting for the details to dress it up. If you remember, in THIS post about the backsplash, I had to find an alternative to my first choice.
And so voila – here is the glass tile backsplash. This pic also includes the preliminary brackets for the shelving. This installer was AWESOME. Do you know how difficult it is to install shelving on glass tiles without cracking them to kingdom come? There was MAYBE a single crack? But it’s going to be hidden by the shelves anyway. Believe me, I climbed up on the countertop and inspected the work.
Below is a shot of the shelves after he stained and installed them. Aren’t they gorgeous? I’m seriously in love. So much so, that I’m not stressed out about not having any hardware on the cabinets yet. Stay tuned, we may put the selections up for hardware for a vote. I’m done making decisions.
So of course, I had to stage or style them immediately. It’s a crummy shot from my phone as I was running out for the evening. And yes, I know there are only 3 rows of glasses on the bottom left, compared to 4 rows of the others, but we need to hydrate around here and I wanted an immediate picture.
And that cute little Nespresso machine in the corner is going to be concealed in a pull out coffee station (in the pantry cabinets to the right of the fridge that you can’t see).
Once everything is installed and set up, I’ll have a real photographer come take pretty pictures. But for now, I’m pretty stoked with the progress.
What about you? Do you like the glass tile contrasted with the semi-rough hewn wood shelves?
