Finally, I’m ready to start sharing pics and progress on our #ZonaAve project! If you have no clue what I’m talking about, check out my “Home” tab under my Instagram stories.
We’re currently renovating another home, and when I say renovating I mean completely gutted and re-done. Instead of flipping it, the intention is to turn it into a vacation rental.
For the kitchen, I knew I didn’t want to do all-white again. For whatever reason, I’m a little tired of it (even though my personal kitchen is white). And, although it’s classic I really wanted something fresh. Enter, beautiful grey and gold kitchen inspo.
To be honest, I was really torn as to whether to go with grey or blue. I am LOVING some beautiful blue kitchens lately! But choosing the color of your kitchen cabinets isn’t just about what you love, it has to work with the house, too. Ultimately, I decided that there may not be enough natural light in the kitchen to go the blue route. While it’s beautiful, I wanted the space to feel open, and a darker color in a smaller space–without nice natural lighting–can make a space feel more enclosed.
So I hunted down plenty of grey and gold kitchen inspo! These are some of my ultimate favorites that I used as starting points for our kitchen renovation.
Here is a sneak peek of our kitchen progress:
I ultimately ended up doing a custom blend for our kitchen cabinets that’s sort of a grey-blue. It looks a little blue in some light and a little grey from other angles, which is exactly what I wanted!
I also went with these gold pulls, which are pretty standard but quite beautiful. And for the backsplash we did the long white subway tile laid out in a herringbone pattern.
I’m so happy with how our grey and gold kitchen turned out and will be sharing soon! We don’t have final photos yet–the built-in banquette is still in the works–but you can see more and more of our progress on my Instagram!
What do you think of a grey and gold kitchen?
