The condo has officially sold! We're one giant step closer to our new home. The move is becoming more "real" each day! We can barely contain our excitement, but are also navigating all of the emotions that come with "moving." It's sad to say goodbye; but overall, we find so much peace, gratitude, and love through the sale of our condo. We are so excited for the condo's new homeowners, and love that it is going to become a special place for someone new who will love and appreciate it as much as we did.
Now, onto the new place! The kitchen needs some MAJOR love. I'm unsure why anyone ever thought that a U shaped kitchen was practical. Two peninsulas make for a crowded room. Here's the plan for the South side of the kitchen :
Here is a sketch of the South wall :
(Fridge will fill empty space; there will be cabinet above it)
The North wall will be entirely redesigned. Here is the plan for this half of the kitchen :
Here is a sketch :
I am planning to do WHITE slab cabinets on the "window wall" and BLACK slab cabinets on the "range wall." I will likely select a white marble visual quartz counter. For backsplash, I am considering a brick to honor the era of the home and play off the fireplace in the living room - either black, white, or traditional red. The brick will be installed in a straight set pattern to mimic traditional mid century brick. Other elements in the space will include matte black and brass hardware, and blonde oak hardwood flooring,
The cabinets, backsplash, and laminate floor have been ripped out! In one week, the wall comes down, and new windows go in!!
