With the help of Gerry, our good friend and neighbor in the Catskills, who is a designer, we hammered out the details for the new kitchen. Please bear in mind that it's a contemporary cedar house located in the woods. It won't look like any of the above kitchens but they give a sense of how the colors and materials look together.
-Black beadboard island with Carrera marble (white marbled with grey) top.
-Red lower cabinets and drawers with soapstone (black marbled with white) counters.
-Two cream upper cabinets (there are four windows) with glass doors, and maybe a red beadboard back.
-One cream upper cabinet with no doors (open shelves).
-Wide plank reclaimed wood floors.
It feels odd to be writing about this...not really comfortable. Too personal? Too decorate-y? Anyway, I probably won't write about it again until it's done. If you're wondering about the tiles, I'll just say celadon, evergreen, bamboo, burgandy. You'll have to wait for the rest.
Back to Thoreau and Emily Dickinson soon.
