believe it or not, i have STILL not made all of the decisions that i need to for the house.
i still have not selected the hardware for the kitchen cabinets.
i know, i know!
nothing like waiting until the last minute! (my contractor/husband is being very patient with me!)
however, i HAVE decided on the hardware for the kitchen island. i feel in love with this image:
i think what i love about it is the mixing of all the metal tones...the hardware is brass, the faucet is chrome, the light fixture is black/dark bronze, and the sconce by the fireplace is vintage gold.
i know some people think that mixing metals is bad, but i think that brass and chrome is the new peanut butter and jelly!
mix away, i say!
in my new kitchen, i will be mixing metal tones.
my faucet will be chrome.
the light fixtures in the kitchen will be a combination of black and brass. (i am going to wait to purchase most of the kitchen and dining fixtures until after we move in. i know what i want, i just cant afford them right now!)
and for the island, i decided on some pretty antique brass campaign pulls from ansaldi & sons.
even though the sides and back of the island are striped with wire brushed oak and RH slate:
the front of the island (that will house the sink, dishwasher and microwave) will be solid RH slate.
here is a picture of them next to a quarter, so you can get a better idea of the scale:
things are starting to move quickly! i have some great update pictures that i will be sharing soon, as well as some more decisions and selections!
