new construction kitchen complete!

The best part about working on new construction homes is that you get to start with a blank slate.  This house was actually finished last year (you can see my updates here, here and here), but, as is always the case with a new home, it takes time to get in and settled before it’s ready to have its picture taken.  This house is very special to me, as I helped design the entire thing from the ground up and I’m so proud of how well it’s turned out!  We’ll be snapping pics from room to room, so today it’s the kitchen!

The homeowner and I tweaked every cabinet detail until it was perfect – including details like turned legs and cut outs at the corners of the fabulous eight-foot island, getting the glaze just right on the ivory uppers and finding a soft gray/blue wall color to complement it all.  Oil rubbed bronze pendant lighting and bridge faucet, an apron front sink and a subway tile backsplash add tons of charm and really make this the heart of the house:

    Oh Kelly, we can not thank you enough. You did a fabulous job!!!!

    Your new kitchen is fabulous!! We are finishing a huge remodel – so I know how proud you must be. It is indeed a kitchen to show off!! Love your lantern over your kitchen table – do you mind sharing with me where you got it? I am looking for one for our dining area as well.
