We started the cabinet installs this week!  We chose to have our wonderful carpenters Ben and Ken build the cabinets for us, which honestly ended up being on par cost-wise with buying already done cabinets. And, this way, we were able to perfectly fit the cabinets into my unusually shaped kitchen. Next week – granite!

And, as far as the colors…Last weekend, my mom and I spent all day Saturday and Sunday painting the walls in Martha Stewart’s Endive – very pale green.

Then, we will paint the lower cabinets in Behr’s Arabian Veil:

And the top cabinets in Behr’s Moonrise:

I am pretty excited about the two-toned cabinet look – I think it will be modern and fresh, and I think that the dark lower cabinets will bring in some depth of color without making the entire room dark or closed-off.  The light walls and white upper cabinets will create that breezy, open feel we all want!
