I have several friends who are building new homes and renovating their current ones. It makes me so jealous of all the decisions they get to make with how their house is laid out and the materials they get to use!

I saw this picture on Pinterest this weekend and I became super jealous of whoever gets to live here! What a gorgeous butler’s pantry and a total dream come true. The white cabinetry and silver leafed walls make this room a perfect beauty. I wouldn’t complain about this space!

Okay friends and family, I need your help! Now that the floors are finished, I have the urge to change some things up in the house. Surprise, surprise! Today, I need your help with something in the kitchen.

Yes, the picture is amazingly blurry but hopefully you get the idea. See that black table and chairs? That’s what we’re focusing on here. Keep in mind the walls will soon be a light grey but what I need to know is – should I change the color of the table? What about the chairs? Should they both change? Stay the same? Here is what I’m thinking…

I could paint the table white, as illustrated in this post by the always fabulous Centsational Girl. But what would I do with the chairs? Leave them black? Paint them white too? Paint them a fun, random color?

Or, how about this post by KFD Designs that I found on Pinterest? It was a regular wood table before so that concerns me, but I love the Restoration Hardware-inspired greywash! I could paint the chairs white to do a mix and match thing in the breakfast area?

See, I’m torn and clearly have no idea what I want to do. The only thing I know is that I don’t want a black table and black chairs anymore. It is feeling too heavy in this house! Leave me a comment, send me a message on Twitter or email me – I would love to hear your feedback and suggestions.

I am so ready to finish our kitchen but I go back and forth on how I want to finish it. Granite? Marble? Subway tile backsplash? Solid slab of marble? So many choices! I have been looking at Houzz and Pinterest, checking out all of the options for white kitchens and there are a ton! I love it.

This one has amazing features all around – grey marble, white cabinets, dark wood floors and the perfect open flow into the living room. I love the pendant lights and lets get serious – the orange stools are after my heart!

This idea gets two thumbs up! I love a hidden area for all of the electronics in the kitchen and wish we had room for this. It is a great solution to the cords and appliances usually seen cluttering up countertops across America.

The thing I love about all of these has to be the white farmhouse sink. My absolute favorite! I think this is one element that will not change in my list of wants for our kitchen. I can’t even imagine how nice it will be to have one large sink that doesn’t look scratched at all times like our current stainless steel sink does.

This one has a light fixture that I can’t get out of my head. The round chandelier is gorgeous!! I want it for our entryway but there’s one catch. It is $3,500!! Holy moly that is way too much money for a chandelier. We can spend that and get completely new countertops! But isn’t she pretty? Ahhh…
