Obsessed with Kitchens

Ever since moving into my house I’ve been fantasizing about remodeling the kitchen and transforming what is now a small efficiency space into a large indoor/outdoor kitchen and living room combo. The foundation is there and I see the vision, just need to get started on the project!

In the meantime, whenever I see a kitchen I love it gets saved to my “home aspirations board”, and this one from Amber Interiors is the latest one for the board!


The grey/blue cabinetry with gold accent hardware, mixed beautifully with a textured combination of wood and marble surfaces, create a sophisticated yet warm environment. 

Then when you add this beautifully worn oriental rug and view windows over the sink, you have an inviting space I would never want to leave!

The MASTER BEDROOM WALK-IN CLOSET has to be super efficient because the space is small, it’s more like a maxi reach in closet..this one’s gonna be a challenge!
