Project House Tour- Part 2

Let the tour continue!  If you missed it, last post I showed you the new front of our big project house, as well as the Entry, Living Room and Dining Room.  Today, meet the Kitchen.

Which is a pretty big step up from where we started.


We added 12' to the back of the house to give us room for this amazing kitchen.

I tried to mix casual and traditional elements together to give this kitchen a beautiful but lived in feel.  The cabinets are Snowbound by Sherwin Williams, and the island is Black Magic.  I love the juxtaposition of white cabinets with black granite and black/gray island with white granite.

I LOVE how the elongated marble subway tiles turned out for the back splash.  Not too busy but just the right amount of interest and texture. Also, I always thought that pot fillers were silly, but I have a serious crush on mine and never want to live without one.  #FirstWorldProblems #I'mNotProud

Right off the kitchen is the Family Room.

 I actually built that mantel surround up at my cabin one weekend this spring.

  That hallway on the right leads back to the bedroom and bathroom, which is also accessible from the hallway at the front entry.

  Which used to look something like this:

The tiny bedroom on the left:

Is now this bathroom:
And here's the bedroom on the right:

  Which used to look like this:

We opened up that entire wall on the right and made the old entry way part of this bedroom which gives us this nice little step down into an office area.

And  removed a big strange closet where the bed is located now.

Can you believe that this view:

Is taken from the exact same location as this one?

So there you have it- the main floor.  Next time we'll head upstairs to the entirely new space!


  1. OH MY GOSH. This is so gorgeous, Erin! I actually LOVE the two steps in this home--it really is unique and makes things feel special (that bedroom!).

  2. So, are you going to live in this house? It's called "project house" now - which, I should go back and just read, but - I thought this was going to be your house to live in? It looks staged to sell maybe?

    1. Isn't it just that they, not yet, have had the time to get the details in there? That usually takes a bit of time, doesn't it?

  3. Nice post really amazing to read thanks to share this beautiful post
