Em’s Kitchen

Today I am excited to show you our new kitchen! We’ve tackled a few projects in our first month so thought it was time to share. I mostly love our kitchen because it sits bang in the middle of the house, I’m so excited to make it extra special and be the gathering place in our home.

Our first project were the pendant lights. I searched the internet and local stores high and low for pendants at a reasonable price. I eventually found Hinkley Lighting and these lovely pendants. Unfortunately, the brass has been discontinued, but I found them on Ebay for $75 each! They are great quality and we are really happy with them. Thanks Brad and Scott for hanging them for me.

The next project was hardware. Most people think I’m crazy for loving brass, but I figure hardware is something you can easily change if you tire, but I have a feeling I won’t! We found these Martha Stewart drawer and cabinet pulls that were really inexpensive. I love the shiny metal against the dark cabinets.

 The kitchen has come a long way from this, but I am secretly pinning a few more ideas…I would love to add a major dose of glossy subway tile like this someday:

    So nice! Dark cabinets done right! We have the same hardware! I mixed the same knobs and pulls as you did in my kitchen (clearance for $1.50 was hard to beat!). You can see them here: http://www.swooninteriors.com/2013/04/kitchen-update.html against my navy and white cabinets.
