inspiration...the kitchen

(click to make larger)

I am so excited for our friends buying their first home. Now they can start thinking about all the fun things that come with home ownership, like decorating and making it theirs! I put together a mood board of a potential kitchen design for them based on what I know about their taste and style. The inspiration kitchen images express a warm farm house kitchen with a bit of rustic utilitarian. I know they can't have gorgeous brick floors, but covering the hardwood with a Turkish rug connects their past experiences-they met for the first time in Turkey! The black windsor chairs are from a local furniture maker, Vermont Farm Table. Each item they buy is always so meaning full. So why not start collecting some Simon Pearce items to hand down to their children? Weck food jars would look great in open shelving, while matte black countertops work well with soft white woodwork. Wonder if they will approve?!
