the kitchen... so far

2.13.2012

I've had several emails from y'all asking for photos of the house. I'm one of those who think that I will post photos when a room is finished.... but I've come to the realization that you'll probably never see my house if we wait for that day. Here are some quick shots (via my iphone) of the kitchen. I'm working on selecting fabrics (cafe curtains for the kitchen as well as a headboard for the bench at the breakfast table and cushions for it and the window seat), barstools, things for the walls....the list goes on and on and on.

The question I've gotten the most (from a previous post on progress in the kitchen) is about the pendants over my island. I chose the Goodman Pendant by Visual Comfort and LOVE them. I couldn't be happier. (please contact me if interested in ordering them through Brooke Chamblee Interiors)





Below is the {unfinished} breakfast room side of the kitchen. You can see the bench installed on the other side of the table... Next up is a fabric headboard for the banquette to add some interest to the space:

Beautiful and so open and airy! Where are the island cabinets from? I love the color. Such a great contrast to the white cabinets in the rest of the space.

LOVE it!!! The color scheme you have is similar to what we are thinking with our kitchen. Ever used "Downpipe" by Farrow and Ball? Wondering if it would be too dark on the cabinets in the pantry (a pass through area) with white walls and honed marble. Can't wait to see the rest of your house!

Can you believe that kitchen is yours?!! It is just perfect, even before you add your fabrics. Isn't it wonderful to finally be able to do some of the things you've been dreaming about for nine years or so :)

Hi, I am trying to decide whether to use the large or medium Goodman pendants in my dining room. Would you mind sharing the size of yours, and also the height of your ceilings? It looks like you might have ordered a custom height. I'm having trouble deciding how high they should be over the table and understand the lengths come in increments of 11". Your kitchen is beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
