Before our remodel someone enlightened me and said, "You should pick out things that resemble your wardrobe."
Naturally that statement hit home, tickled me pink and made all kinds of wonderful sense to me. And. That is how I designed my kitchen. The granite is a sexy black number with subtle imperfect hints of bling. The cabinets a classic demur white distressed every so slightly for a bohemian feel. The chandeliers a traditional number with shabby chic accents of crystal. The wood floor a wide plank carefully handcrafted to rustic perfection.
My kitchen will be like one awesome well put together outfit.
But just like shopping for an outfit I realized how predictable I truly am. Last week at JCrew I feel head over stilettos in love with a chunky pearl necklace that I baptized it upon arrival at home bestowing it the name of "Mary-Margaret" and introduced her to "Sally" and "Lolita" and all the other girlfriends. The necklaces spread out on my dresser looked like a group of sassy Delta Delta Deltas, all nearly identical to one another.
The same can be said for my new yet to be baptized kitchen cabinets.

Yeah. Perhaps a little predictable but all kinds of lovely nonetheless. I could shock you all and purchase a rocking fuchsia table runner that will make the cabinets purr with excitement.
