It's "Favorites Friday" | Around the New House

The new house has been a lot of work and we're slowly starting to wrap up all of the renovations we have started. We took possession on July 11th and demolished the whole first floor living space, except for our walk-in closet and the main floor bathroom. All the rest… gone. We built in a wall, hung some new drywall, had electrical rerouted, new lights put in, the kitchen totally redone, all new floors, new doors and built a new closet in the spare bedroom. Not to forget new windows have been started and trim is what's waiting for us next. Oh and I hired my mother-in-law to paint everything (thank goodness, I hate painting!).

It's been fun and exhausting, but well worth the outcome. And, while I'm not quite ready to give you the full tour of the house - which I'm dying to reveal, I am going to give you a sneak peak with five of my favorite things so far. We still have a few things left to do in the main space before we can slow down and start other projects at our own pace. Unlike the cape cod, I want the main living area to be completely renovations free - this way we will always have a place to run and relax. There's a whole list of must-dos ahead of us, including a totally renovated basement! But, that will come in time, something we don't need to worry about this year. In the meantime, while I think about redoing all of the floors in the foyer this weekend, here's a sneak peak at a few of my favorite things for this Favorites Friday:

The Countertops

The Light Fixtures

The Glass Cabinets

The Farm Sink

The Hardware

I can't wait to finish up and start unpacking the rest of the boxes. Our house feels so "cold" without all of the furniture on the main floor and no decorations to be seen whatsoever. I am thinking this weekend will be spent redoing one of my antique dressers, laying some floors in the foyer and finally starting to move things. I anticipate that the hubby has this weekend aside to do trim… We will have to wait and see what happens and if I can talk him into letting me do more. He's venturing off to a golf tournament tomorrow and may just come home to a whole new foyer! :o) I will keep you posted and in the meantime, have a great weekend!

It's "Favorites Friday" | Ikea Kitchens

An extra long weekend for me, I thought I'd get my Friday post wrapped up early! This weekend brings all final touches to the house, a massive cleaning and moving of unneeded options to the in-laws basement! You guessed it, the listing agent comes Wednesday to take pictures and put the sign in the front lawn. It's hard to believe it's already here. So, while I missed my pin attempt this week, I certainly can't miss Favorites Friday. Last weekend we stopped by the new Ikea in Ottawa and I fell in love with a few pieces they have, as well as a few kitchens... so, today's subject is five favorite Ikea kitchens. Enjoy!

Okay, so if you haven't guess it I'm pretty much a sucker for white kitchens... although gray is slowly growing on me! The second picture is my absolute favorite, while it came up as an Ikea Kitchen, I'm not 100% it is after analyzing it... SO, I apologize if it isn't... but it's just so beautiful! And of course the last one with the mix of grays and white is beautiful! Have a great weekend out there... if I find time I'll try and make up for my missed pin attempt post and do it on the weekend... if not, see ya Monday...

I'm Dreaming of a White Kitchen.

The heart of the home - a big beautiful white kitchen. When looking at a house it's all about the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room. With so many ways to design and make all of these areas masterpieces to share with the world... yes even the room with your toilet.... I can't help but to obsess over a white kitchen. So, here are a few I've found lately that have me day dreaming...

White Kitchen with Butcher Block Top Island
White Kitchen with Gray Walls
White Kitchen with Subway Tile

And there you have it... some of the greatest white kitchens out there! Now I must go and dream a little more! Be sure to share links to your favorites kitchens in the comments below!
