Kitchen Confidential

Last time, we started talking about the kitchen with my last post I'm finally at a good place

When we left off, the kitchen more or less looked like this:

We decided we liked grey countertops, so that actually was a pretty easy decision.  We discovered this Home Depot looking at silestone countertops. There's one in particular that I still kinda miss that we ended up not doing. It had SPARKLES, people!!!

I love you, I honestly love you
 It was time to go appliance shopping.  Ironically, although I thought this would be my very most favorite errand of all time, surprisingly, I found I have a pretty low tolerance for things that aren't practical (I'm lookin' at you, Bertazzoni):
I'm telling you: Everything Italian is always sexier
We ended up choosing the a line from GE.  More than the microwave, dishwasher and fridge, I found I really got into ovens. I wanted something that had a restaurant-industrial look but a home cook, user friendly feel.  Other considerations:
1. I don't know why, I just wanted all my appliances to come from the same line. I have heard appliances don't have to match, and that is fine, just not for me.
2. The refrigerator had a french door.
3. There was a sale.
4. The oven has a griddle top, and that excites me. It also has a built-in oven meat probe (god that is so much fun to say) and a baking drawer.
5. The fridge looks badass and it has a cool commercial and I'm a sucker for advertising:
Dig if you will a picture
of you and I engaged in a kiss
I'll post in the future when I actually get to make something how they ended up working out!


  1. that fridge looks amaaazing. Oh my GOD I want a fridge just like that! I can't stand our fridge with one side the freezer and the other side the fridge. I can't get anything long into either side! (that's what she said)

    PS: Everything IS sexier when it's Italian ;)

  2. Nice blog! and nice design of kitchen, this type of kitchen make homes attractive.
