Kitchen Progress | Lights

Because of my blogging break last year I failed to show you the new kitchen island lights. (But they debuted on Instagram the day of installation…that’s why you should follow me there, too!)  Didn’t Chris do a great job on this decidedly unusual set-up?  I love that it is different from the norm.  You can read about the inspiration and design process in this post.

www.tphblog.comThe kitchen table is chairless at the moment because I FINALLY decided on a color in which to powder coat them, and they are now at the painter.  I wasn’t shy in my selection…here you go, one of these blues:

www.tphblog.comIf I’m being completely honest with you, somedays I wish I didn’t do the mint cabinets.  And somedays I love them.   But ever since I painted the panels for the dining room, it all made sense and the mint came into its own.  I still wish I could have done a marble slab for the backsplash.  That’s why we move, right?  To get second chances?  (We’re NOT moving!)

www.tphblog.comHopefully the chairs will be back soon and I can share the brilliance (or utter horror of my color choice…time will tell).

Some thank yous:

Sixty-Fifth Avenue for posting my butterfly and Cottage and Vine, too!

The English Room for posting our dining room!

Well, I’m hoping to pick up some of my mojo I had going a couple weeks ago.  But some sick kiddos had stomach viruses and an orthodontic emergency and fractured and sprained wrists that put a halt to my creative frivolities.  Everyone is thankfully on the mend now and the studio calls!
