Welcome to my kitchen. This is where the magic happens.
Originally my kitchen had dark wood cabinets, laminate counter tops, popcorn ceilings and complimentary curtains + shades. My house came with a black refrigerator and stove/oven. This was the first room I started to update, as I spend a lot of time in my kitchen. I wanted to brighten up the space and add light. So I painted the cabinets a soft yellow (butter cream). I left them that way for months but they just never felt right. It felt a little too country (which is cool, but didn't go with the rest of the house) and the yellow just didn't feel quite right against the black appliances.Once I saw how the all black living room didn't actually look too small or too dark I decided to explore the idea of adding more black to the kitchen. I decided to do the upper cabinets half black and half white, for fun and to add light. My favorite feature in my kitchen is the all stainless steel counter tops. I love them! They remind me of working in a commercial kitchen. You can cut right on them if you like and they are super easy to clean, great for kitchens that get used a lot. Even though I went with a mostly black and white color pallette I added a few pops of orange (knives, my mixer and dish towels) and lime green (inside my cabinets). These little POCs keep the kitchen feeling playful. Thanks for stopping by! xo. Emma

Gorgeous kitchen! Where did you get your bar cart?
Hi Emma, what an amazing room! I have been thinking about stainless steel counters for our kitchen when we finally get to redo it and wondered where you got yours from? Would you mind sharing please?
Emma, what did you do to change the grout coloring from your “Progress” photo to the current flooring? Did you retile? Thanks! -Rachael
Having lived in Davie for a while now, I am well aware of who or what makes good kitchen cabinets around here. There are some new companies as well who are not much experienced but still do good work. However, if you want to get your kitchen renovated, you should always turn to a reputed kitchen cabinet Davie installer.

I absolutely love that the inside of the cabinets is green. What an awesome surprise. So many great ideas for if I ever actually live in a house I can fix up.
I love your black and white cabinets!!! I absolutely can’t wait to get my own place and start decorating and making it my own. It’s one of the things in my future that I’m most looking forward to! I’ll make sure to keep your room tours in mind for inspiration when the time comes.
Hi- Great kitchen cabinet idea, fresh and new 🙂
Where is the cute pug bust from?
I am shopping around for a new espresso machine and wondered what kind yours is and if you’d recommend it. I also noticed the (burr?) grinder and was curious about it as well. Both are super stylish, and I’d love to know more. Thanks!
the silver metal cart, with my espresso machine (I’m assuming that’s the one you’re talking about) is vintage from Etsy.
last year. 🙂
the metal cart, with all my coffee stuff, is vintage from Etsy
Love your kitchen! Where did you get the bar cart?
You girls are so crafty I love you
Beautiful! Where did you get the gold spotted utensil holders?
We bought a magnetic strip for our knives as well, and love it! It was the perfect fix for our general lack of counter space!
im soooooo in love with these cabinets. unfortunately im quite a few years away from owning my own place, but im storing away this post until that day comes! love love love!!! xox sydney
I have a similar cooktop, and I use my cast iron and dutch oven on it all the time, I just take special care to lift them instead of sliding (so I don’t scratch the surface) and to set them down very gently (so I don’t crack the surface). No problems yet!
