Hey, y’all! Today I’m happy to say, I am sharing my favorite room in the new house, my modern farmhouse kitchen. From faucets, hardware and fixtures to paint colors, tile selection and decor, I’m giving you boos all the deets! 🙂 Check out my IGTV over on Instagram for a video tour of this space! See below for links to everything.
The Kitchen by far is the space I get asked about the most, especially the countertops and island paint. Let’s get to those babies ASAP! Although the island looks a bit navy in pictures, it’s actually black. I selected Sherwin Williams “Tricorn Black” for not only the kitchen but the barn doors and front door as well. I wanted black to be an accent “color” throughout the home. And yes, I’m well aware black isn’t technically a “color”, but ya know what I mean! 😉
One of the hardest choices to make for me was countertop materials. I wanted the kitchen to be simple and clean and that meant I was on the hunt for white stone. I didn’t want to use marble as it is not durable and stains easily. This is NO lie. If I could give any advice for kitchen counters, steer clear of marble!! You will not be happy. I looked at numerous granites, not liking any of the designs and coloring. I finally got to the conclusion, I was going to need to use quartz. It is non-porous so it resists staining and there are numerous white options I liked. I was still struggling as I felt quartz looked a little too modern for the farmhouse style I was after. I decided to go to one more slab yard to take a peek, and this is where I discovered quartzite… I found a beautiful white stone with little blackish streaks – legit, perfect! I was warned that since the stone was so strong, it would be much harder to work with. I took a chance, and I’m happy to say we found a great sub that installed it beautifully! They took the 2cm quartzite and mitered the edge so the face/lip of the counters where 2″. This is a way to make the slab appear thicker. Genius! 🙂
As I mentioned above, the overall style of the kitchen (and house,) is modern farmhouse. This means I took rustic elements like reclaimed wood beams, barn doors, shiplap walls and subway tile and mixed it with modern touches of brushed brass hardware and white countertops. I’ve linked everything I used below as well as my fun kitchen items and decor. If you scroll down (I posted A LOT of pics), you will get to the back kitchen where we have our bar area, another sink and the pantry. This design is my favorite detail of the house. We love to entertain and having another area, separate from the main kitchen space, was important. Everyone always hangs out around the island and not seeing food prep or dirty dishes was important to me! Ya, I’m a neat freak thanks to my Type A personality 😉 If you head over to my IGTV Kitchen Tour video, it will give you a better idea of how the space is laid out.
Please comment below with any questions. Always happy to help!
