New House Kitchen Inspiration

Saturday, August 20, 2016
I'm counting down the days until I can get in to the new house and start the reno process. I'm pretty sure there will be a moment a month or so from now (or maybe sooner) that I regret that statement but that is what I am feeling. So much excitement, anticipation mixed with anxiety and a little fear. You know that nagging "what are we going to find when we start tearing things up?" feeling that keeps creeping in to my thoughts as I plan my design.
YOLO right?!
I've been dreaming of owning an old home forever!  I've been dreaming about it for so long that this in between time while we wait has me all antsy and wanting to get busy already. Literally, killing me.
Well, there is only one thing to do.....Pinterest and Photoshop to keep me busy.
I've been thinking about the kitchen design the most because that will be the very first project we tackle. That and tearing out every last piece of carpet and painting the entire house white. Still trying to figure out which white though?? I even have my eye on some of those old wood floors becoming a beautiful shade of white. We shall see how all that plays out.
I have a New House board on Pinterest and I'm adding inspiration daily.
I am thinking of going with a modern rustic approach for the new kitchen and even though I keep tweaking the design in my head and I know things will get changed a bit when the actual work begins this is very similar to what I can see as the final design.
Fridge and stove to the left of the room with a modern hood, large rustic island and open shelving flanking the sink on the opposite side of the room. I want to take down some walls so that the kitchen flows freely in to the back room which will become the dining area and TV nook. I can't wait to start showing you all the before pictures! Until then, here are a few images that are giving me all the inspiration that I need to tackle our soon to be new space.

and here is a sneak at what I've been working on. Oh you guys I can't wait!
