The Modern Family Kitchen

I found a little inspiration in this month's issue of Southern Living magazine and I wanted to share. Isn't it gorgeous?
I love almost everything about this kitchen- it incorporates vintage and modern aspects together. But mostly I love the color on the island, and I'm going to try to duplicate this look in our kitchen. I've been trying to decide on a color for a while now to paint our new kitchen island.

We got this bad boy from my husband's grandpa's house. It matches perfectly with all our cabinets, but I'm not a matchy-matchy person, so it was only a matter of time till I took a brush to it. The kitchen's clearly a bombshell right now, but I wanted to give you a visual. I think I might also take the color and paint the back of the door as well. Here's the color, it's by Benjamin Moore.

I think I might replace the fan with a pendant now that we have a mini island there, too. If I could find something similar to those brass ones up above, I'd be in LOVE!

  1. I'm loving the colors in the inspiration photo. Have you checked out the design blog Apartment Therapy? One of their trend predictions is brushed brass and I thought, "no, really? I hate brass!" But then I saw those brass pendant lights and I think I've been converted!
