I know, I know...I jump around a lot. I guess I have HADD - house attention deficit disorder.
In any case, the topic of the day is the kitchen. Last we left off, it looked something like this
While I still love the space, it needed a little bit of spicing up. This occured to me about 6 months ago but it was always simmering in the back of my mind. I just wasn't sure what to do so I left it be. Then one day I saw this fabulous kitchen on decorpad:
If you can tear your eyes away from that fabulous chandelier for a minute, you'll see the beautiful blue of the chairs really pop against the space. So that got me thinking about using the accent color from the dining space in the stools. The stools in kitchen are gorgeous but too formal and too large for my space. So the idea got filed away for later use. And then I started to see these fabulous industrial stools used in kitchens all over. Check a few out here and here.
But the prices of some of these pieces were a bit beyond my comfort level so I went in search of something more reasonably priced. I found this stool but I wasn't sure of the scale from the photo so I was on the fence.
And then I stumbled upon the great Martha's kitchen and what should I see?
The very same stools! They looked just perfect except for the color so that sold me.
Once they arrived, they just needed a color change.
They look a bit blue in the photo here but they were more of a grey as you see in Martha's kitchen.
The brighter shade brings out some personality, don't you think?
Thats as far as I got this weekend but I'll be putting some finishing touches in the kitchen this weekend if all goes to plan.
