A new light fixture (antique) went in, and an antique stained glass window replaced the small, ugly window looking out onto the back yard. A big white ceramic farmhouse sink, found also antiquing is going in below that window with what is now the sink going to be a huge work area, in what is a very tiny kitchen. Now we have to select floors and cupboards. The stained glass has got bits of yellow, gold, and green against what in soft light, looks like faintly grey glass. I love old things, especially things that bring back memories of family, as the firearm pictured is one of a father's legacy. In keeping with that, the floors will be some shade of grey, with black or a dark midnight blue trim around the rooms perimeter; the walls a light yellow and the cupboards white. For my decorative items are my collection of my Mom's Swedish Dall horses, which are white, orange, or black with bright and sunny markings upon them (the one pictured, a new one that Partner and I picked up at a Finnish store while visiting Dad.) We had looked through some of the type and quality of tile we wanted but I wasn't too sure based on how the colors looked on the computer. So he ordered me samples so I could see them in natural light
We'd kind of hoped to be further into it, but with everything going on both personally and professionally for both of us this year, there just weren't the hours to do so, even if there was the interest.
But the six tile samples arrived last night and Partner did a phone picture of them to send down to the crash pad.
So, I'd appreciate your opinion on what would look good. Please indicate in comments which one you prefer from the top photo as: top row right/middle/or left and bottom row right/middle/ or left.
I'm not going to select based solely on friend's opinions, but if I can't decide between two, it will help. With the stained glass, a door with glass that goes out into the sun porch and the window pictured below, the room gets LOTS of light.
Partner in Grime however, being a mechanical engineer, pictures the kitchen layout as a whole different challenge.
It even came with a card.
First use? Making cauliflower "rice" to serve as a bed to herb roast chicken for low/no carb dinner the following weekend (seeing as how someone ate a fair bit of cake earlier in the week).
Nothing says "I Love You" like a Mangler.
