makeover monday: kitchen inspiration board

We've been in the house for about three and a half months now, but haven't done too much except paint a room or two. Well, things are about to change up in here. Mick and I (read: just me) have been on the search for backsplashes, light fixtures and dining furniture for our kitchen. While we're still on the lookout for a great dining table, I think we've found the rest of the goodies for our kitchen. Below are two pictures of the kitchen as it sits today. From the builder, we upgraded the cabinets and opted for a granite countertop. We also spent a lot of upgrade money on the slate floors -- we chose upgrades that would be most difficult for us to install ourselves later. I used The Decorator's Journal ($30) to gather all of my inspirations, product picks and room measurements. This journal is simply fab for anyone doing room makeovers on their home. You can organize per room, drawing floorplans and documenting all the measurements you need to know while shopping. Each room page includes a plastic sleeve so you can store loose paint chips, fabric samples, etc. I loved having this with me when I was out and about scouring for products for the kitchen. Here is a collection of the items we found for our kitchen. I'm so happy with how it all comes together as a palette of grey, black and white, but with some pops of yellow -- this palette is so me. Mick's favourite colours are blue and orange -- blue for the Cowboys and Maple Leafs, and orange for the Texas Longhorns. So, we'll leave his colour choices out of this. The best part? It's all totally affordable. The curtain rod, black rug, marble backsplash and light fixtures are all from The Home Depot (love it), and the large mirror is from IKEA. The chairs are $100 each from West Elm, and the vintage spoons photo and silhouette plate are finds from Etsy. As for the KitchenAid mixer? That's on my Christmas wishlist (wink,wink, nudge, nudge). I'd love to hear what you guys think! Love or hate? xo, Lauren
