we remodeled our kitchen about two and a half years ago. we added this window seat that also holds additional storage drawers. ok, for the last two and a half years this window seat has stayed pretty undecorated, i’m sure you all have a project like this? finally over the holidays we took a trip over to marin and i visited the new West Elm store. it was love at first sight, everything about the store was awesome! so, i decided to make the plunge and purchase some yellow and grey silk pillows. i was originally hoping to decorate this seat with a fun ikat design fabric, but everything i tried was just too busy. our granite has a very bold and bright pattern, so going solid was the only way to go.
here is our bold granite. i love it against the white, it just warms up the kitchen. originally, i wanted a white marble, but my husband wanted a warm environment and was worried that the white on white would be too cold. i now love the yellow and it is a unusual granite that’s dramatic and draws lots of compliments!
here is a photo of our old kitchen before the remodel. we both love to cook and we knew the kitchen was going to be our first project. hope this has inspired you to tackle one of your decorating projects! thanks for visiting.
