It has been three weeks since we purchased and moved into our new home in Austin. I’ve been working non-stop on unpacking, selling old furniture, getting new furniture and decorating. There is still a lot to do, but here is where we are so far!
Remember this image that I posted while deciding on lighting? Things are all pasted in this photo (below) to see how it may look.
In the end, we decided on these in nickel satin.
The barstools were also pasted in here as I decided on overall design direction.
That direction has changed a bit since, but the general idea is still firmly intact.
Here is how the actual room is looking now that we have the new lights from Arcadian Lighting in (thanks to a generous discount they offered me) and the barstools in place.
Aren’t those lights awesome?! It’s so fun to see things come to life.
I thought this kitchen was smaller than our last, but we haven’t filled any of the very top shelves yet, so it may be a hair larger as it pertains to cabinet space. The pantry is definitely larger.
Features of our new kitchen include a pot filler, stone backsplash, chiseled granite countertops, custom stove hood, oil rubbed bronze fixtures, and GE Monogram appliances.
I wish I could capture the size of the kitchen more accurately in these images, but it’s as large as our last one. The island alone is 10.5 ft long. The wall of cabinets behind it is 15 ft, then 6.5 ft of cabinets by the fridge.
What all do we have left to do? Well, mostly just adding the wheat grass that is in the drawing. I have a tiny little container of it on the counter now, but we plan to add some as shown in the original design.
To see what our last kitchen looked like, go to the tour page.
What about the family room that I showed a glimpse of yesterday? We’ll show more of it tomorrow!
What do you think of the lighting? Of the barstools? Of the kitchen at the new house? These are not final photos, but photos of work in progress so far… after just a few weeks.
