Junkin: Kitchen Accents

We finally made our final decisions on kitchen accents. Yahhoo!! It's so good to have it behind us.. why are there so many options?

So, here they are. The final pieces of the puzzle.

Drawer Pulls - Lew's Hardware Round Bar Pulls
We went with three sizes. The larger handles (shown above) on the pantry, small (3.5 in pulls) for the drawers/cabinets and a small little single pull for the one small drawer in the kitchen.

Range Hood - Wide Arched Signature Range Hood
This was installed last week and it looks amazing! Just needs to be painted white.

Pendant Lighting - Natural Brass Penn Single Light
Two of these will hang over the bar.

Backsplash - white subway tile with a light gray grout like above. 

Kitchen Faucet - Satin Brass Jacobean

...and certainly not least, countertops.

This was the hardest decision to make. Everything we loved was not practical... sure, beautiful, but not toddler or cooking friendly. Why do you see so many beautiful kitchens with white marble countertops on TV?  I guess they aren't really lived in... or maybe folks are just way more meticulous that we are with their cooking and everyday wear and tear.

In the end, we "upgraded" to a quartz that looks very similar to the white marble we wanted... but much more practical with a two-year-old and newborn on the way. Here's a picture of our slab we picked out at Albemarle Countertop Co. last week.

Meanwhile the kitchen is looking great.

Now we wait... move it date has come and gone. We're now hoping to get in before the end of July and secretly hoping baby decides to stay put until after the move. But if not, we will make due. Newborns are portable, right?
