Kitchen Love Triangle

The next room that I plan to decorate is the kitchen {mainly since it's adjoined to the great room}. We're thinking of painting a small section of a wall with chalkboard paint since we always have lists and thoughts to jot down. I'm still trying to decide what the main color of the walls will be, but I've narrowed it down to a shade of grey...not sure which one yet though. So as I was browsing kitchens I came across these two gorgeous ones. I can see myself nestled in them with a glass of wine and jazz playing in the background.

Great Room Inspiration

One thing that I told myself is that this year I would dedicate myself to decorating my house. The first few months of getting settled in and used to paying a mortgage are over, so now it's time for the fun to begin!

I have been looking at different design styles, color schemes, etc. and I have just about finalized the colors that I am going to do for three rooms. I'm starting with the great room since we need to hang curtains up (the neighbors behind us can probably see straight into our house since we have a 2-story great room with windows at the top, eek!). I am loving this image; it's so sleek and sexy.

The colors in this room are similar to the colors that I would like to do, however I plan to add turquoise and yellow. Inspiration board to come...
