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



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



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…..


If you know the source of this one or have seen something like it, please share in the comments.

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

P. S. I’ve been transitioning to a new feed service so I apologize for any broken links, etc. you may have experienced in your readers the past week.

      1. I can’t wait to see – so fresh sounding. you have given me inspiration.

        as far as the paper lanterns, I love those, too. I have three cool shapes from ikea that I have had forever – I want to group them together somewhere… I know you mentioned those as a temporary option, but they look so great – they could be long term, you know….


  1. Bright white will add such a lightness, especially since your wallpapered wet bar has such an impact. Your instincts to use white paper lanterns is spot-on, too. Great idea, Ally.

  2. The Delta 9159-CZ-DST Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet, Champagne Bronze is similar to that brass fixture you posted. Its not quite brass, but it may be better on your wallet.
