I have kitchens on the brain. Last week I mentioned that I’m leaning towards blues, greens and grays to incorporate into the space. I’m loving the idea of gray cabinets. But what gray to choose and then there’s always the classic white cabinet I hear calling my name. Who knows I may even change my mind on that. Ahhh so many great choices I can’t pick!
With the possibility of remodeling our kitchen I just can’t stop thinking about them. We’ve slowly been narrowing down the floor plan, size of an island we’ll build and recently we’ve been talking about building a banquette. After taking down the wall I’m cringing at the though of another giant mess this whole project will create but I think in the end it might just be worth it. Bryan on the other hand is not fully convinced that we should work on the kitchen next. I hear the outdoors and the lake calling his name. I might just take a sledgehammer to the kitchen myself soon and ask questions later 😉
Here’s some of what has caught my eye as I was browsing through kitchen ideas.

This gray charcoal cabinets are gorgeous! I love the mat finish and stainless apron sink. Maybe charcoal gray base cabinets and white uppers would be a good combo to solve my need for both light and dark.
Charcoal Gray Cabinets and White Island (original source unknown)
I like the mix of dark cabinets and light island. That marble with the gray veining is perfection. I’ve tried to talk myself into marble countertops but just can’t get over the fact that one spilled glass of red Gatorade and they’d be done for.

Here’s a lighter version of the gray I’m loving and again marble countertops. It seems that every image I pin has marble counters. Oh marble why do you have to be so porous and expensive?

And then there’s the ever popular kitchen of Sally Wheat that is just so classic and beautiful. I think thi image is where my love for gray kitchens began.
After I go down the rabbit whole of gray kitchens I’ll find a perfectly gorgeous white kitchen I hear calling my name. That sea glass blue subway tile behind the cook top keeps calling my name. It would work perfectly with some of the colors I’ve already picked out for the space.
Do you see my obsession with marble counters? I think it’s becoming a sickness.

I need to have a window like that over my sink one day and orchids instead of dirty dishes flanking the sink. Ok scratch the idea of remodeling the kitchen I’m just going to move into the picture up above.
