Lavender Love

It’s February and love is in the air!  Not only is Valentine’s day just around the corner but I’ll become an Aunt this month and my engagement anniversary was yesterday! I can’t believe how much as happened in just 4 years!

These days, Eric and I have been house hunting which has kept my “free” time full. No luck yet on finding a house we love but we are trying to keep an open mind. Especially when it comes to small changes – like painting cabinets!

We are seeing the SAME color cabinetry over and over again in the kitchen and bathrooms. A lot of brown and plain white.  Not enough color.

I usually prefer a clean look when it comes to the finishes in the kitchens and bathrooms. After all, these are two important spaces to keep clean! I had been leaning towards a classic black and white look for our next home –  until I saw how beautiful lavender cabinets in a kitchen or bathroom would be.

I’m sharing some of my favorite examples, plus a few of my favorite lavender paint colors to get this look at home. I love all 6 shades but my favorites are #1 and #5!

If you haven’t heard, brass is back! And these gold accents undeniably work well paired with these lavender cabinets. The hardware, mirrors and accents add a touch of glam to this feminine space. And those floors!! In LOVE.

Painting an island is a great alternative to get a subtle pop of purple. I have to point out those mirrored cabinets too! Another great idea.

I love everything about this kitchen above – the cabinets, farmhouse sink and subway tile.

Beautiful color choice and details in this bathroom. Plus the wallpaper is gorgeous!
