Before we moved to our current home, we had cherry cabinets with a green/black granite. So when we built our current home, I told my husband, this time I’d love to have a white kitchen with dark floors. Through our builder we found gorgeous 3 1/4 inch espresso colored hardwood and my creamy white cabinets. We later added the Z Gallerie chandelier and the IKEA barstools. As you know by now, I have two girls ages 6 and 3, so I wanted easy-to-clean and affordable stools that made functional yet design-savvy sense. Just last year we added the white Italian subway tiles which I think adds so much interest to any kitchen!
