I am a wife, mama and DIY enthusiast. I love sharing ideas on the art of homemaking, food, babies, design and how to decorate on a budget. My husband and I are remodeling our home in Phoenix and I share my thoughts, projects and journey through this blog. I hope you’ll stay awhile and take a look around.
I have always wanted a white kitchen. I’m not exactly sure why, but there’s something about the way white cupboards remind me of fresh, crisp sheets or just done laundry… The kitchens just seem… clean. It also might be the fact that these tasteful galleys have beautiful islands and space saving cupboards, which naturally brings out the Virgo/organization enthusiast. I can't lie, I love order!
White kitchens came into popularity in the 90’s, and functionality and light were key. Look at all the white kitchens you have seen in magazines or movies. They are always accompanied with rows of windows or French doors. So I have begged my husband to please allow me to have a white kitchen in our next home (which I hope to one day share with you). But for now, feast your eyes on these beauties!
Let’s talk about wallpaper – not your grandma’s faded red and black kitchen paper with tea kettles displayed, but the new and improved wallpaper!
I have to admit, at first I wasn’t a fan, but after viewing some lovely homes that feature an accented wall or backsplash, I honestly think I am hooked. Personally I can’t wait until we get a new home (keep your fingers crossed) so I can add a cool textured wall. What do you think? Would you use the new, superior wallpaper? Take a look at these beautiful styles from House Beautiful and then you decide.
