La Jolla Lifestyle Kitchen
I think the world may have found it's happy place. Introducing our latest (and favorite so far) lifestyle kitchen. A proper photo shoot hasn't been scheduled but we couldn't resist posting a few photos. Because why hold back sharing this beauty? Here you go:
We started with a clean slate, after much research and discussion whether to "facelift" the old or start anew. Boy am I thankful we started fresh! Because fresh is what we ended up with. And wonderful. And yummy. And...
This island is truly amazing. The room's previous layout was pretty crowded; to say we had limited space would be an understatement. The contractor and I scrutinized every inch and angle and came up with such a great solution to the space problem that you don't even remember there was a space problem. The only thing you do when walking into this kitchen... is smile, relax and cook something!
I could go on and on about how much I love Tabarka tiles, but the evidence is in the installation. I hand-selected the colors for the backsplash and had it installed to the ceiling above the sink, which enlarged the kitchen and consequently... enlarged the happy.
The story of this kitchen isn't complete without a visual of what we started with. It really was a pretty kitchen back in the day it was done, but truly time goes by and thankfully styles change. We kinda prefer the current style.... don't you?
