I am finally making time to renovate my kitchen! Let me paint a picture of the before: no disposal, no dishwasher and a meat locker for a refrigerator. It's safe to say that it's time for a change this year. I have been dreaming of an all-white kitchen for a while now, so after months of researching, this ideabook has come to be a picture of the things I loved, wanted and actually selected for my dream kitchen. — Shannon from I Love Your Crazy and Poplin & Queen
This kitchen was such an inspiration during the process. I wanted an all-white kitchen with dark hardwood floors.
Globe Pendant - $99
I went with glass orbs over industrial pendants because the ceilings in my home are lower. They make an impact without taking up as much visual space.
Ceramic Basics Capriccio Tile, White Gloss
White subway tile backsplash was an easy choice. It's affordable and clean.
Carrera White Italian Marble - $5.99
I agonized over using white marble and decided against it. I enjoy wine too much to risk the serious staining.
French Kitchen Paper Towel Holder - $19.95
I added a little marble with this towel holder. It stays safely away from stains and is useful.
Traditional Kitchen Countertops
Quartz countertops are a wonderful alternative to marble.
I eventually landed on Corian's Rain Cloud. The durability won me over.
Rohl Perrin & Rowe Two-Handle Kitchen Faucet, Polished Nickel - $1,975.88
Traditional fixtures won out because I have big plans to mix in some modern touches with lighting and accessories.
Shaws Contemporary Single-Bowl Fireclay Apron Kit Open Sink
For my budget, I had to choose between a gas range and a fireclay sink. I went with this dreamy sink!
Catamaran Stripe Indoor-Outdoor Rug, Navy/Ivory - $41
Small indoor/outdoor rugs are the way to go under the sink.
Burmese Fabric, Blue
I picked a fun Sister Parish fabric to do a cornice on the window above the sink.
Polished Chrome Cup Pull - $15.96
For hardware, I love the vintage feel and sparkle of these cup pulls.
I went with these detailed knobs from Baldwin. The great thing about using a polished chrome is the consistency. It's the same no matter what brand.
Perforated Porcelain Bowl, Medium
This is the quintessential fruit bowl. I can't wait to fill it with lemons.
KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, Chrome - $349.95
Everyone talks about stainless steel appliances for a reason: They are a kitchen must.
Red Silicone Spoonula - $6.87
Of course, I needed a pop of color in the kitchen.
Rectangular Tray, Albert Paprika - $30
I can never have enough trays. Everything looks organized with a tray!
Palo Alto Lantern, Club Navy - $1,995
Every dining table needs bold lighting. How amazing would a lacquered navy lantern be? I'm swooning.
Embossed Numbers 15" Wall Clock - $59.95
I like that the numbers on this clock are subtle. It reminds me to relax.
M. Dickson Dining Table
This rustic table adds warmth and charm to the all-white kitchen.
Navy Riviera Armchair - $245
Café chairs are family friendly, classic, and easy to wipe down.
Palladian Blue Paint | Benjamin Moore
The entire kitchen is bright white with gray touches. There is no better complement than Benjamin Moore's Palladian Blue.
