INSPIRE: COLORFUL Classic Kitchen Inspiration

Lately my husband and I have been discussing and thinking a lot about whether to slowly RENOVATE the home we currently have in hopes that we would like it more aesthetically OR purchase a NEW completely finished house that's for sale but still add some personal touches to make it more our style OR go through the stress and financial burden of CUSTOM building our DREAM HOME? My brain hurts. I can't remember the last time I had to make such a difficult decision. Probably when we were trying to decide if we wanted just TWO kids or MORE? The answer is NO MORE by the way, unless there is an unplanned SURPRISE. And just so you know, I am not a fan of SURPRISES except for SURPRISE gift cards! Lol.

Anyway, right in the middle of all this hard decision making, I was contacted by a coordinator from Big Chill to participate in their COLOR of the MONTH project which luckily the month of MAY happens to be one of my favorite COLORS... Tranquil TURQUOISE!!! Oh how I LOVE TURQUOISE, let me count the ways... or I could just show you in an INSPIRATION Board that I CREATED for my version of a "COLORFUL Classic Kitchen"! (SEE BELOW) It was kinda entertaining to get an email from Big Chill explaining to me who they are considering I have had a CRUSH on their RETRO Collection for many years. So obviously, I highly recommend that you check out their three totally different Collections of Big Chill Kitchen Appliances that would go perfectly with anyone's style, whether you like RETRO, MODERN, INDUSTRIAL, TRADITIONAL or CLASSIC. In fact, since I'm madly in LOVE with COLOR, you should know that Big Chill has the MOST COLOR options for Gas Stoves and Ranges that I have ever seen before! And if you don't like COLOR, (which would break my heart) White, Cream, Grey, Slate, Black or Stainless Steel are also available(LINK BELOW) 


Some girls DREAM of the "perfectWEDDING but I didn't, my wedding was actually put together last minute on an already planned family vacation cruise to JAMAICA. Sorry if I sucked the romance right out of that whole idea. Instead, I am the kind of girl that DREAMS of the "perfect" KITCHEN!!! When I close my eyes, my DREAM KITCHEN is a vision of bright WHITE shaker style cabinets, sleek WHITE/GRAY quartz countertops, GRAY subway tile backsplash, RETRO inspired TURQUOISE Big Chill appliances, CHROME hardware and lighting, LIGHT GRAY walls, DARK rustic hardwood flooring, large DARK GRAY island, COLORFUL barn door that leads into a really BIG pantry (a girl can DREAM!)NATURAL wood decorative accents, AQUA KitchenAid mixer, vintage inspired COLORFUL stools and lots of BRIGHT COLORFUL
Fiesta Brand accessories on display throughout! You were probably starting to wonder how I was going to incorporate my LOVE for COLOR, but no worries of course there would be multiple POPS of COLOR against all those neutral WHITE/GRAY backgrounds!!! Don't you guys know me at all by now? Haven't you seen my insanely COLORFUL social media posts? BELOW you can view my "COLORFUL Classic Kitchen INSPIRATION" board PLUS photos of BEAUTIFUL kitchens that INSPIRED my DREAM KITCHEN DESIGN.
