Goodbye, Gray Kitchen + A Possible (Temporary) Lighting Option

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

Spring break is over and it’s back to reality. And that reality currently looks like this at my house…..

YIKES.

I’ve loved our gray kitchen but as I mentioned in this post, I’ve been dying to lighten things up on that side of the house and….. I’m actually doing it! As you can see, the painters are here. It’s in the process of going all white! #soexciting

I’m still on the hunt for the perfect lights for the island and I’m considering just plain paper lanterns if the search takes much longer. You know I’m a big fan of paper lanterns.  Don’t all of these look so fresh and light? I’m really into these dotted ones:

I’m also thinking those white sconces by the sink need a glossy coat of orange lacquer…..

and that a brass faucet like this would do nicely…..

So basically, this mini-makeover (which is how I described it to my husband) may not be so mini after all…. Oops.

Spring Break

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

Greetings from London, friends! I’ve been here on spring break and it hasn’t been pouring the entire time (for once) so I’m a happy camper. Regular blogging will resume next week so I will see you then. In the meantime, I’m on Instagram (@FromTheRightBank) and Twitter (@FromTheRightBnk) if you want to follow along. Bye for now!

Lately…..

A few snapshots of life around here…..

My favorite thing about spring is spring flowers and how cheerful they make the house feel. I was so pleased to be quoted and to have this photo published over at Country Living (as well as Veranda and Elle Decor)…..

I’ve also been spending a little time in the kitchen. (Emphasis on the little.) This quinoa and Tuscan kale salad is my favorite lunch these days. (I know. The two most annoying ingredients in the world right now but it’s really good, I promise.) Recipe here.

When we get the rare lazy Sunday morning at home, challah French toast is a favorite. I like this simple recipe.

I saw this yesterday and think that may have sealed the deal on Project Laundry Room…..

I also think it’s time to admit I have a zebra problem…..
