For the Home - My Kitchen Details

I have received several emails regarding home details and I apologize I haven't gotten around to it yet! 
We moved in to our newly built home during my first trimester of this pregnancy and I was a little out of commission for a couple months with nausea!!
My mom flew in at just the right time and with her Decor skills she helped me to transform our house in a matter of a few days.

I absolutely LOVE every detail of our little home!
It was a dream come true to pick everything out and SUCH a learning experience.
 I wouldn't trade it for the world!
Our building process for this home was pretty standard ( structurally ) - nothing too custom so it was pretty smooth and quick!
Perfect "First Home" experience and I feel prepared for the building process of homes in our future HA :)
( I would recommend building to anyone! )

For safety reasons for my family I have to be careful and not show the outside of our home, the area we live, etc. ( please understand ) but as I slowly finish each room I will picture the inside. :)

My Kitchen.
My inspiration for my kitchen came from my Mom's BEAUTIFUL kitchen.
It is the prettiest kitchen I have ever seen and I LOVED how light and bright it felt.
I cook at least 4 nights a week at home and spend a lot of time in the kitchen so I wanted it to be a light, bright, and clean lined happy look!

My mom and I found these AWESOME olive oil and balsamic vinegar bottles at TJ Maxx along with these cool Salt and Pepper shakers and this gorgeous tray at Marshalls Home Goods.
 ( almost ALL decor in my home is from Marshalls. I am such a believer in that place! )

Loving the little archways into certain rooms in our home.

Notice the tag on the bottom of the cake plate.
I left that there on purpose for a "real life" feel HA.
I ALWAYS wait about a week or so to take tags off.
I think it's so helpful to bring decor home and display it in your home to see how you feel about it after a few days.
There have been decor items that I absolutely LOVED in the store and after a few days of having them in my home I realized I didn't care for them as much as I thought I did HA.
( P.S. I WILL be taking the tag off of this cake platter. I love it )

I have yet to find something to fill my glass canisters ^^
Something with color pop I just haven't found it yet HA.

Simple and bright. My kitchen makes me happy.

Kitchen Details:

Counter Tops : Omega Stone Level 3 - Victoria
I LOVE my counter tops so much. They are quartz, which is very similar to granite -  My mom has similar quartz countertops in her house and that's where I got the idea. They might be my favorite part of my kitchen! 

Backsplash : Wall tile level 13 - Pietra Cristal Cubic Mosaic ( 12x12 Mesh ) 1x1 - Bianco

Wood Floor : Mardi Gras Acacia 5" - Krewes

Cabinet Knobs and Drawer Pulls : KNOBS / PULLS
The design center was going to charge us 17 dollars per cabinet / drawer to order our knobs through them and have the builders install them. I did lots of research, found cabinet hardware online I loved even more than the ones the design center offered and we did them ourselves ( with some help of friends :) We clearly still don't have our "pulls" on our drawers HA but those will get on there eventually :) It was about 1/2 the cost of them doing it for us so I would totally recommend doing it on your own!
