Home Tour | Kitchen

Wow! It has been a little over a year since we moved into our dream home. When we moved in, we knew we didn't have to do much to the house, except make it feel more of our own. Right after closing, we had our former neighbor or as we like to call him 'painter man' come and give us an estimate and pick our paint colors. I decided to go with Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter for the whole house, minus the bedrooms. 
Let me back track and say, if we didn't want to, the house really wouldn't have needed a full paint job. However the golden tan color it was, just wasn't my style for it to be throughout the whole house. Our old home I didn't paint, and hated it every day! But something that I NEEDED to change, was the island color. I'm assuming the original color was white or maybe a grey, which would have been fine with me. However, the previous owners painted the island and the cabinets below the sink and above the microwave ROYAL BLUE. Now I know what you are thinking, that's not bad.. but the backsplash is seafoam greens and teal colored blues and the pendant lights above the island as well. It just clashed so. dang. bad. So, as a last minute decision (because I was torn on colors) I went with the same greyish color that was in our bedroom. Now the back splash pops, and it matches our decor so much better!! Our painted also painted the cabinets I mentioned before back to white. They don't match perfectly, but in this picture and unless you knew, you could barely tell.

We decided not to go with a kitchen table in here and leave the space open instead. We did just recently put this bar top table we were storing from our bar basement we had in the basement bar area, to add extra seating! When we first moved in and Joey was smaller, we put his play table in the kitchen area for him to eat out, however as he grew and became Mr. Independent, he now sits at the island stools as well. Since we have three of us typically eating there, one of us usually sits on the Ikea stool! Not ideal, but if its just for a quick bit, we don't feel like cleaning off the dining room table to eat!
