Beautiful Classic Kitchens

Home is where the heart is. And, in my family, the heart of the home is the kitchen. More reason to make it the best looking space in your home. One fear when designing kitchens is choosing a style that won’t age well. What if I get the style wrong and then I’m stuck with it forever? We get it. Our advice: choose a classic kitchen. Not too modern and not too traditional, this timeless design won’t confine you to a single style or become outdated. Because of subdued color palettes, clean lines and understated details classic kitchens are flexible, adapting beautifully to a wide range of interior trends. With a timeless kitchen it’s easy to completely change the look by simply switching out accessories that are on trend. No need to making any major changes. Exchange those traditional bar stools for industrial ones, inject the latest color or pattern trends by switching out the pillows in your breakfast nook. Updating your hardware or lighting doesn’t have to be expensive either (hello, lighting under $100). Over time, whether your style changes from industrial-to-eclectic, farmhouse-to-transitional or traditional-to-Mid-century modern, the classic kitchen will always be the perfect canvas to create your masterpiece.

I’m a look your best and you’ll feel better, give it your all or go home type of girl. Who also may or may not suffer from a slight sushi addiction. If you know someone who’s annoyingly obsessed with gorgeous interiors, I’m probably worse. My favorite interior style would def have to be Mid-Century Modern, but I’m still a girly-girl at heart so a dash of glitz makes me swoon. I’m a boy mom and resident of Fort Worth, TX but my heart lives in the Rockies (who doesn’t love Colorado, right?), and if traveling was free you’d never see me again. I believe that you can never fail at something you're passionate about and that challenges are really opportunities if you have the right mindset (so stay positive!).

We are building a house and going exactly for the look of classic kitchen #2 with the navy paint… do you have sources for any of the items you listed in that pic?
