With the arrival of the breakfast nook table last week, I thought it was only appropriate to do a full kitchen renovation reveal! Like our formal dining room reveal, I’m obsessed with how our kitchen turned out!

Before Photos of Our Kitchen
I snagged these before photos from the house listing from when we bought it. It’s absolutely AMAZING to see the transformation, and even though we haven’t been home that long, it’s hard to remember that our house ever looked like this! (To be fair, it was down to the studs for a LONG time.) The only thing I wish I had kept was the roman shade, but eventually I’ll get one made!
After Photos & Our Kitchen Renovation Reveal
We used an architect for the floor plan and moving of walls. I designed and sourced EVERYTHING for our renovation on my own. I have to admit that I’m proud of how everything came together. I’ve provided a list of everything used at the end of the post, but if I forgot something, please let me know! I’m always happy to share where I found things. Also, I had originally ordered a (way more expensive) different backsplash, but once they put it on the walls, I HATED it. I scrapped it and picked this up on a whim in less than hour. Sometimes our best decisions are the ones that we make quickly!
I decided to stick to this Bernhardt table so that I could pull the chairs over to the formal dining room when we have parties and need more seating. The gray furniture complements the wood floors very well. It was also way easier than trying to match wood colors! I want to find a round rug to go under the table at some point. I think this aqua one would be perfect if the colors are right!
In 2022, I purchased a Giovanni Pulze painting from the San Gregorio gallery in Venice to add to our kitchen! The colors are absolutely gorgeous and it really adds to the space. The black and white print is by the incredible Mary Beth Koeth. She and I studied abroad together in Florence, and it remains one of my favorite photos taken on a rainy day.
