The Dream House Diaries #6- Kitchen Idea Board

I’ve been working away on plans for #projectdreamhouse …drawing out the layout, sorting out rooms needed etc. etc.
And since it’s literally consuming most of every thought wave, let’s do another…
…entry.
Today, I’m sharing the kitchen idea board.
I’ve sort of figured out what I want, which basically takes pieces from all of this…
…and mushes it together.
I think it’s going to be good.
Without giving away all of my secrets at once, I will say this stuff:
1. Glossy white flat front cabinets with brass campaign hardware
2. Butler’s pantry with display cabinets
3. La Corneu black/brass stove
4. Fireplace
5. Marble of the veiny variety/thick profile
6.  Panelled walls and hidden stuff
7. Black windows and lots of doors
8. Herringbone floors
9. Modern lighting
10. No kitchen/great room action…kitch will be it’s own separate space
The three bottom kitchens are the main inspiration I’m working with…hoping their hybrid kitchen love child is a pretty one;)

    I like the idea of a strictly kitchen.
    I have never been fond of the constant clean up during a party I am entertaining in the open concept kitchen/ great room.
    Truthfully, I get annoyed when I see the mess sitting there … and so the circle continues .. Unless .. we can move to the great room .. then I can enjoy my guests and clean up after.

    Ahhhh, live and learn 🙂

    I’m seriously beyond excited to see this project come to life. Everything you are posting is such a dream. DYING.

    How exciting! I didn’t think you could top your current kitchen but this new one is looking pretty fantastic!

    Christine, I am a big fan of your blog and style, although I could never afford your house/things. I think your current kitchen is gorgeous and warm, not cold as some of these appear. I am curious, several bloggers I follow now are into herringbone floors. Do they squeek? It seems that this could be a big problem. Thanks for your inspiration.

  5. yes those last three ones are my fave as well!! Can you keep a secret? I’m using those pendants in the bottom far left for my kitchen…oh please…I might die! and yes that hybrid kitchen child will be divine!

    I can’t…..Ughghgh I would die for 1-9!!! I mean if I could just get herringbone floors, I ‘d be happy. My fam used to have a hardwood flooring business. I wish I would have taken advantage of that a few years ago!

    Love the idea of the black and gold oven… love the gold hardware.. white thick marble… mod lighting… all VERY very nice. Will miss the antique mirror/glass on the doors of your other cabinets!… can you bring a bit of that into it? if not, ship em to OKC? HA!

    Love the kitchen inspiration. I am sure it is going to be absolutely amazing considering your current kitchen. we are working on a renovation on our home and your mood boards are great inspiration to me! What program do you use to make them?
