I placed the order for new kitchen cabinets at the flip house. I chose a pale taupe color for the lower cabinets and the kitchen island, and a soft white for the upper cabinets and pantry. I’ve done gray cabinets in a kitchen before, I still love it, but for this remodel, I’m choosing a warmer neutral. It will complement the dark flooring, white walls, and the transitional looks already in place in the home (see the fireplace makeover here and the bathroom makeover here).
Warmer grays are definitely trending. Some might say “taupe is the new gray.” For years we shunned tan and beige and the pendulum swung the other way toward cooler gray which dominated for some time. However I’m happy to see it swinging back to the middle; some call it taupe some call it greige, but I love it when I see it – that soothing neutral that’s a blend of beige and gray.
Hello! This evening I’m so wiped out, I spent yesterday celebrating St. Patrick’s Day as any self respecting Irish girl does! I had a really great time with a group of good friends. Today I took a four hour self defense course, oh man was that intense, but in a good way. It’s the second course I’ve taken in the past year and I cannot recommend them enough, I always leave those classes with knowledge and tactics that I know will help keep me safe in a bad situation. Take one in your town ladies, you’ll be so glad you did!
Tomorrow I’m headed out of town for a few days to spend some time with my older brother who is remodeling his kitchen for resale, he needs my help picking out finishes so I’m taking a short road trip and giving him some ideas. Hope you all had a great St. Patrick’s Day too!
