Beautiful Flowers & Kitchen Details

I have some gorgeous kitchen details to share today along with some beautiful flowers.

I’ve been practicing my photography skills quite a bit lately. Ever since I went to The Academy in France a couple of months ago and recently learning Lightroom, it has inspired me to take a lot more photos. I have a new-to-me hydrangea bush in my yard and it’s full of lovely bright purple hydrangeas. I clipped enough to fill my big white apron-front sink and, unfortunately, it also came with 1 large grasshopper, two earwigs and 100 aphids. Yuck. After I shook out the flowers in the sink and sprayed water on the bugs AND made sure I switched the garburator on, we were all ready for a photo shoot (sorry bugs).

I cannot wait to reveal a big before, during and after of my kitchen. For now, here are a few close-up details of what I love most about my kitchen and some sources.

This white apron-front sink is the same one I bought for my previous kitchen so I knew I couldn’t do without it. I love the farmhouse style.

It’s the Kohler Whitehaven self-trimming 30″ sink. They have much bigger ones but I found 30″ wide plenty big!

The white sink, with brass faucet and purple hydrangeas in the sink.

The faucet is from Delta Canada. It’s the champagne bronze Trinsic pull-down touch activated faucet. It’s a dream to use when you’re baking and your hands are a mess!

You just need to tap the faucet once anywhere and it’s on. I’ve never had a faucet like this one before and I don’t think I can ever go back. The problem now is when I’m at someone else’s house, I’m constantly tapping their kitchen sink wondering what the heck is wrong with it! Why won’t it go on! lol

It even comes with a matching champagne bronze stopper.

There is a little bar of soap in a dish on the sink in the kitchen.

The little pottery cup and block of hand soap I got in France and the gardening shears and linen tea towels were gifts from Heather Bullard from The Academy.

Pruning shears are on the French linen in the kitchen to cut the stems of the flowers.

I’m just in love with these bright hydrangeas. I need to redo my driveway next year but for it to be properly fixed the bushes on the side will have to come out and one of those bushes is this lovely hydrangea bush! I’m going to have to transplant it if I can because I’ve never had such huge beautiful flowers like this one.

All the hardware in my kitchen is from D. Lawless Hardware. I matched the drawer cup pulls to the champagne bronze faucet and I wanted to also add a bit of sparkle with the glass knobs.

The white kitchen cabinets under the sink plus the drawers with the brushed brass pulls.

I’m loving this combination together. The drawer pulls are heavy and hefty pulls. I really like that about them. I’ve had some before that were flimsy feeling but these are the real deal. I ordered a few glass knobs as samples before settling on these ones. I wanted them to be a good size, not too small and I wanted them to be able to take a bit of a beating since this is a busy kitchen. These glass knobs are the ones I felt were up to the job and I’m very happy with my decision.

There are glass knobs on the doors of the kitchen cabinets.

The white subway tile is beveled which gives it more texture for light to bounce off of and the countertops are quartz: Vico Stone BQ8220 Carrara (3 cm). The kitchen cabinets were custom made.

A stand up mixer is on the counter in the kitchen.

I love my Jenn-Air counter-depth fridge. It is much more shallow than the average fridge but if you want that custom look, a counter-depth fridge is key. The gas stove is from Jenn-Air as well.

All the kitchen cabinets including the hood range were sprayed in Benjamin Moore Simply White and for a subtle difference the island cabinets were sprayed in Benjamin Moore Gray Owl.

You can check the post I did on deciding on paint colors and hardware and hardwood floors.

The gorgeous pendant lights are from Restoration Hardware.

Again, that champagne bronze just adds such a nice antique touch to the kitchen.

  1. Gorgeous!! I love the faucet!!
    I have a question, I see you have the Edison bulbs in your pendant lights – do they have a very yellow glow when on? I recently got a new light for over our kitchen table, and part of the appeal was the Edison bulbs, but I had no idea how “yellow” it would be when turned on. I’m wondering if they are all that way.

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, Edison bulbs are very yellow. I have pot lights everywhere in the ceiling and that’s mostly what I use. Actually, because it’s been summer and I have big windows, I don’t use many lights. I also have the pendants on dimmers so I lower the wattage which seems to help. Hope that helps!

  2. Hey girl love your kitchen! I’ve wanted a apron front sink for awhile now! They are so cool! and those flowers are so pretty! Can’t wait to see more pics!

    1. Thanks so much, Shawnna. I really love that apron front sink. It’s so heavy being cast iron that it needs to sit on it’s own cabinet!

  3. Hi there! I was wondering if you could tell me what brand cabinetry you use. I have been designing/planning a kitchen remodel for almost 2 years and am very overwhelmed. So many choices out there. Any tips would be helpful!
