Kitchen Inspiration

via

I’ve been a little MIA on the blog lately. With summer in full force, I've been spending more time outdoors, but also I’ve been doing some work on my loft and have temporarily moved out of my space while the entire place gets painted. It's been a little chaotic. Once the paint is done (fingers crossed this week!), we’ll finally be finishing up our kitchen (it's only taken us 4 years).

When we first moved in to our foreclosed loft, the kitchen was half gone - I guess the old owner found some value in pieces of the kitchen. So we came in and ripped out the remaining outdated cabinets and replaced them with a more modern look - adding black lower cabinets and white quartz counter tops. We alway intended to finish the upper area - adding open shelves and a backsplash, but a lack of money and time kept us from moving forward.

But this summer we are finally completing the space. And since I am finalizing my kitchen design and have decor on the brain, I am sharing some of my favorite inspiration photos. Feel free to comment below and let me know your ideas for the space!

And for anyone who is interested in seeing our half done kitchen, here it is (please excuse the iphone quality). Any ideas on what to do with all that upper space? Right now I'm thinking of bringing in some warmth with wood shelves (to match the beams throughout the loft) and a white subway tile backsplash. What do you guys think?
