Our White on White Kitchen Reveal
Here’s a look at our kitchen before…
And then once the walls in the house were painted…
When it came time to design our new kitchen, I knew I wanted white. White on white to be exact. But I also knew I didn’t want it to be alllllll white. First, I chose an ever so slightly off-white called White Dove by Benjamin Moore for the majority of our cabinets. The slightly off-white with the white countertops adds some depth and interest to the kitchen while not being too matchy matchy. It adds depth to the space. Then for that pop of color, I color matched a furniture piece in our home that I LOVE for a beautiful turquoise island color. I just love the beautiful vibrancy it adds to our kitchen! From there, I decided to really accentuate our custom vent hood and range cabinetry with a slightly cool gray that works beautifully with our island color… Thundercloud Gray by Benjamin Moore.
Countertops. Oh white countertops. After being in the stone industry for over 12 years now, I can tell you for 110% certainty that you do NOT want marble countertops in your entire kitchen. You can literally argue with me all day everyday but I have dealt with this over and over and over again with clients. Marble scratches. Very very easy actually. Marble is not heat resistant. It will crack. Marble is very fragile. Do not drop a pan on it. Marble is however oh so beautiful. So I chose it for our island ONLY… Statuary White Marble. This is an area that we are able to be more careful with and consciously avoid using for hot pans, cutting vegetables, etc. For the remainder of the countertops I chose Tiger White Granite. For the edging, I love a super thick look. They did a stunning double thick edge around our entire kitchen that makes the granite and marble 2 1/2″ thick rather than 1 1/4″ (3cm). It is breathtaking.
Here’s a look at all of the other finishing details! Oh and all of my topiaries are from HomeGoods. They’re the perfect finishing touch to any kitchen and I get asked about them ALL of the time!
