Renovation isn't always pretty. Especially when you add in a case (or two or three) of the flu, but we're recuperating and trying to get back on track around here.
To keep my eye on the big picture, I wanted to share some of my inspiration. These are some of the first photos I sent to Jack when we began the design process. They came from the website of Swedish stylist Eva Lindh.
My notes to Jack:
- Open shelving (no upper cabinets, please!)
- A simple palette of white and wood
- The use of siding as a design element
- Farm sink
- A nod to our former vintage kitchen, but with more streamlined cabinetry, surfaces and hardware.
- Painted wood floors
We were able to integrate all of these elements into our design plan. I am really excited to start seeing it come together, but we have a lot of work to do. In the meantime, I'll continue sharing some of the beautiful spaces that inspired us.
