New Project

So I think I mentioned that hubby and I are going to build a house.  We are in the middle of ironing out some details currently, but to get me excited about the project, hubby sent me to a site to check out some kitchens (yay!).

He has been feverishly working on a house layout plan and I have been so far, relatively un-interested...mainly because he's:
1. Obsessed with this project: sketching, talking about it...etc.
2. Working on all of the not fun stuff like square footage, costs and other things I don't have any interest in/don't understand.

But with this task of picking out kitchen stuff online I've gotten a little more into this whole building a house thing...

Alas, here are some photos of the kitchen that I fell in love with and met all of my requirements, which are:
1. LARGE island with room for stools
2. Large sink
3. Shelves in the island for my cookbooks (you know, in case I ever decide to use them)
4. Pass-through "open" plan that will transition from kitchen to living room
5. white/white-ish cabinets!!!

 Just so you know, I'm thinking of having poured concrete counters with a white marble top on the island...I also like the idea of having the island painted a light shabby/chic green color.  

Oh, and if you want to take a peek at more of these awesome cabinets go to: www.crown-point.com


  1. Love that big kitchen!! I can't wait until we can go house hunting and can pick out our own kitchen (we're renting now)... although like you, I want the perfect kitchen.. which is probably easier if you just built it like you guys are doing!! hahah.

  2. p.s. I really like the wide wood floors. They make it look really countryish.. yet modern/chic at the same time :)

  3. wow -- gorgeous kitchen!
    Some friends or ours did concrete countertops and I just love them! good luck building your house =)

  4. Loves these!!! Can't wait to come visit :)

  5. Love it!! I'm actually thinking something very similar for our kitchen though instead of concrete counters, we are both leaning towards the solid wood. AMAZING!!

  6. So you! I love the exposed beam ceiling...

  7. BTW - I'm sure you already know about This Pretty Space - http://prettyspace.tumblr.com/

    Super cute inspirational site.

  8. Love love LOVE the white kitchen. Seriously everything I want and more.

  9. Lindsay, thanks for the kind words about our cabinetry!

    The color, by the way, is our Antique White Classic Paint. (We also offer Genuine Milk Paint and the Estate Eggshell line of renowned Farrow & Ball paint.)

    In case anyone would like to see more of this kitchen, it can be viewed here: http://www.crown-point.com/gallery/page2.html and it's number 9.

    Thanks again, and best of luck with your project!
