Kitchen Inspiration | Mood Board

One of the things I liked most about our house is it’s lack of updates. It was built in the early ’90s so I wouldn’t say it’s old, which is nice coming from a house built 40 years prior. C and I want to be able to put our touch on something in our own time rather than put money into a house that has finishes we do not like. The kitchen, especially, is a blank slate. Builder grade all around while also not too intimidating of a process (maybe I’ll come back to this and laugh at how naive I sound).

I’m trying not to get too far ahead of myself with the house. We don’t plan to do anything too major, but I know that even small projects can take a lot of time… especially with a baby in the house. I like to dream and plan, so mood boards are already a thing that I do so I figured why not share them here. For the first in the series, here is my new kitchen inspiration mood board.

You probably have noticed, but I’m a bit of a white-everything-girl. I like white walls, white bedding, and typically, white cabinets. And painting out cabinets white is the easy way to go, but I really do like the look of darker grey or blue cabinets with white countertops, sink, and backsplash. I also love the bicolor look (dark on lower cabinets and white on uppers) like you see in this kitchen.

And as much as I love this kitchen, we canNOT go without upper cabinets… we barely have enough cabinet space to begin with! I do love the range hood and subway tile backsplash, though. I’m also pretty dead-set on a apron-front farmhouse sink, like in the image above. Small shallow sinks are not for me.

I love that our kitchen is visible from the living room, which is another reason I want to get it right. Our overall style is a bit mid century modern with a dash of scandi so the space will need to flow with the rest of the house. I’m optimistic it will eventually get there!
