My New Kitchen Coming Soon~

We live in a modern suburban home with a very modern suburban kitchen...you know the ones with basic cabinets, appliances and boring big white bulider tiles everywhere. We have lived in this house three years and have painted and repainted the kitchen three times...I know, pretty bad huh?

I decided it was time I get some help so I contacted a home decorator... I emailed the very sweet and talented Holly of Holly Mathis Interiors and she so kindly came to my rescue in a very short notice (as my husband was tired of playing checkers on the kitchen walls and had already hired someone to repaint) I had no clue what to do before the painter came...luckily, I too live in TX and not very far from Holly so, she came over and helped me...It was soooo much fun working with her! She has such an eye for decorating and had the most wonderful ideas. Holly wrote about my kitchen on her blog, you can read about the different paint options we discussed for the cabinets here on her post about painting cabinets.

There were many different paint options we discussed but narrowed it down to about two of them. Im still a little torn between painting my cabinets gray or black, although I have always been a lover of white cabinets, I am leaning more towards painting them black since I have white corian counters and it will tie in nicely with many of my black accents around the house. Here are a few more paint color options...

This is a picture of what my cabinets look like now...



White?? (notice my brown hardwood floors? Ha!)
black?

maybe white AND black??

grey...I love grey!
