On the gloomiest of days, a white kitchen will always put a smile on your face!
I am so excited to share that I am in the midst of designing a kitchen that I’ve always dreamt of AND it’s for me!
I’ve created beautiful kitchens for many clients & I am thrilled that I finally have the opportunity to put all the wants + needs of a gorgeous + uber-functional kitchen into my own home.Â I’ll be honest, I can walk in to a clients home and with a snap-of-a-finger see how to transform it.Â With my own kitchen, it hasn’t been so easy… my finger snapping failed me.
I, like many others, have always wished for white.Â And so of course, my new kitchen will have white cabinets (not all, but most).Â I was hesitant about white at first feeling that it might be too sterile or too ‘white’, but with layers + pops of color throughout, I know it’s the right choice for now + later.
If you’re dreamy about white like me, here are some kitchens to be inspired by that perfectly balance white with layers of color, texture, and style…
