Kitchen Reveal!!

That moment when you realize you get excited about faucets. 😍 Love this one from Brizo!

So happy with the color of our countertops! At first I was worried they were too gray, but it’s crazy how much all the textures and tones play off each other once everything is in. Now it’s one of my favorite parts! We went with quartz and I’m so happy they clean so easy! 

All of our hardware and knobs are from Top Knob! I’m obsessed with the pulls! They are one of my favorite details, and had so many questions on them. 

This runner in front of our oven is one of my favorites. It was my subtle way of bringing a little pink into our kitchen 😉

Our ILVE oven was definitely one of the things I was most excited for, not just in the kitchen but the whole house! I loved the mixed metal and it’s handmade in Italy. I studied abroad in Italy so I love having a piece of Italy in our home. 

I honestly didn’t know what I was missing with just a standard refrigerator and freezer but now I can’t go back! This refrigerator and freezer have so much room!

Obsessed with all the Hudson Valley lighting fixtures throughout the house! These were perfect for the space.

You don’t realize how much detail and planning goes into every single corner of a room until you build a home! We finally put the finishing touches on our kitchen and I couldn’t be happier with how it came together, down to every last detail! We worked with some amazing brands and companies to pull it all together and I have already gotten tons of questions about the few shots here and there that I have posted, so I am excited to finally be able to share a full kitchen reveal with details on EVERYTHING to answer all your questions! The overall feel I wanted for our home is Europe meets a California coastal feel. In our kitchen it definitely feels more costal with the natural wood elements and open shelves. I wanted it to feel bright and welcoming but not too formal. 

I am the type of person who always second guesses everything when I can’t see it all in front of me, so the process of picking out those big ticket items that we knew we would have to live with was kind of daunting. Luckily my designer, Erin Hansen Design, was amazing and I’m so happy we put in all the time and thought that we did! I really went back and forth between marble and quartz on our countertops and we ended up going with this quartz countertops from Bedrock Quartz and I am obsessed! When they first went in before any of the other finishes were done, I was worried it was too grey but once everything else was in I loved how it all played off each other! Now it’s one of my favorite parts of the kitchen. For the backsplash we used a longer subway tile from Bedrosians in porch white. I love the shape and how its different from the typical size. I always go back and forth between pretty detailed tile or more minimalist, and I’m so glad we went with the clean, simple look of the white subway tile. 

One thing a lot of you have asked about is the chandeliers and lighting I’ve shared so far! We used Hudson Valley Lighting for most of the lighting in our house and I am so happy with how all the fixtures flow with each space. For the kitchen I wanted something unique but still subtle enough and I love these hanging pendants! They have some stunning statement lighting and chandeliers too which we used for other spots in our home – full details on those in a post to come!

One of my favorite pieces in the kitchen is definitely our ILVE range – I’ve dreamt of this piece forever and it was the first thing I picked out for the space. It’s handmade in Italy (where I studied abroad) and I loved the idea of having a piece of Italy in our home. I love the look of the mixed metals!  The oven has tons of room which is amazing when we are having Cody’s  family over for dinner or brunch. (We are huge breakfast people and I didn’t realize what a game changer the griddle is; I didn’t think it was possible but I think we might be having more pancakes than before haha.)

You know you are officially and adult when you get excited about a pretty kitchen faucet. We got these beautiful brass pieces from Brizothis one for the counter and this one for the island.  The island one actually has a touch feature where you can turn it on and off just touching the spout! It’s pretty cool! I loved how sleek and timeless the shape of both them are. Slightly modern but still traditional for our home. We also used them in our bathrooms and seriously they have so many gorgeous options that I had a hard time choosing. If you guys are looking for new finishes, you have to check out Brizo’s options.

 Since we’ve always rented our home, this was our first time actually picking out appliances! I knew we wanted built-ins and found this Electrolux refrigerator and freezer. If you are looking for a new fridge and freezer and have space for these, I definitely recommend them. We also got this dishwasher and built-in microwave. The microwave is actually ac convection oven too, so you can cook things in there as well! 

For most of the finishing touches, for our open shelves I worked with McGee & Co.  I have bought so much stuff from them in our rentals and I am obsessed with everything from their store! If you haven’t looked at their stuff you need to, your cart will fill up fast 😉  I love the coastal California vibe of all their pieces. Below are a few more of my favorite details from the reveal!

XX, Christine
