Dreamy White Kitchen

Christen’s Dreamy White Kitchen

When we started working with our client on the kitchen selections for their MWG custom built home, her exact words were “I want a dreamy white kitchen”. Our goal was to provide that crisp white classic kitchen but with some warmth and transitional style.

Working with all-white can feel a bit cold and commerical, but the addition of rich, slightly distressed wood floor brings in some warmth and an organic touch.

The textured backsplash tile updates traditional white subway tile with a soft blend of whites and subtle shades of greige.

With clean white kitchen cabinets and the nearly all-white Cambria quartz countertops, the addition of the textured white subway tile brings subtle shades of greige – just enough to warm and interest.

Stainless steel and brush nickel appliances and lighting bring a little sparkle and polish.

Working with professional style stainless steel appliances, brushed nickel lighting and cabinet hardware adds polish and transitional style and creates a timeless design.

A butler’s pantry is a smart addition to any kitchen – especially if you love to entertain.

The end result was truly a “dreamy white kitchen” and one our clients, and their family, will enjoy for years to come!
