Kitchen love pt. 1

I am of two different decorating minds and am at the point where I am trying to figure out how to merge them or even if to merge them. If I don’t figure out how to combine them then I have to choose between them…I don’t know which direction to go. So I thought I would organize my likes here on the blog and hopefully organically come to a conclusion. Today I am sharing one side of my likes for the kitchen. On this side I like creamy colored cabinets, a light palette including greige, blues, pearl with some French-y and cottage-y influences. This look is all about being soothing and calm, very home-y but still with a touch of whimsy. But just a touch. The wallpaper would be tempered with lots of cream, lots of light colors. Because the wallpaper is kind of funky I would make everything else pretty high end.

The use of wallpaper, here, is exactly how I would temper my taste for a more whimsical paper with the desire I have for a more classic look. This kitchen really hits the nail on the head for me in every way except I would use a more fun paper.

I actually have these exact canisters and I am certain that whichever decorating direction I go I am going to use them and the pearly tile backsplash pictured here.

Adore this! The light fixture, the topiaries, it’s almost all perfection. I think the clean white mixed with the taupe is my only dislike, I would go a more greige/gray blue direction in the roman shade and then a pearly tile backsplash, but that’s just me. Image found on Houzz.

I love a lot of this look, although it’s a little too cottage-y for me, esp. the candle holders…
