Dream a Little Dream (Kitchen)

Earlier this weekend, I ran across a “Dream Home: Covet Living” guest post I did for Paloma Contreras at La Dolce Vita.  It was a great little series that a lot of bloggers and designers contributed to, and essentially a post where each of us was asked to compile our favorite images and walk readers through what would constitute our dream home.  Anyhow… I realized that my style has grown-up some since then, so I started cooking up an updated version… and then that got so long that I decided to divide it up and do one post per room. It got me thinking, it might be time for us to undertake a new project. I think our kitchen might be due for a renovation. Perhaps you can let us know what you think?


1 – Jazz Pendant, Currey & Co (I know, I know… I used this glorious pendant in a Beach House Chic Mood Board recently, but I can’t help myself.  I’d put it in every beach house, outhouse, penthouse and pool house if I could.)

2 – Petite Alliance 4 in Terra Cotta & Marble, Tabarka Studio (for backsplash), Calacatta Gold Marble Slab (for countertops), Antiqued French Oak Flooring the color of driftwood (similar to shown)

3 – Milky-white cabinets with sliding glass uppers and oil rubbed bronze hardware (image HERE – designer unknown)

4 – Reclaimed Lumber Olivia Dining Table, CFC (slightly less expensive and a smidge more contemporary sister company to Noir)

5 – Colonial Cane Chair in Distressed Brown, Noir

6 – Paint Color: Down Pipe, Farrow & Ball, Lucite & Brass Pulls (similar to shown)

7 – Distressed Antique Brass Faucet, Waterstone

8 – Farmhouse Sink in Silicon Bronze, Rocky Mountain Hardware (eh, mah GAH.  nomnomnomnom.)

Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone is still in their sweatpants and eating pancakes and doing as little as possible.
