My Kitchen Vision

So this week we are actually starting the deconstruction of our kitchen and other details that need to be worked out prior to the cabinet install.  Here is an idea of what I am going for:

My Cabinets will be flush inlay, white, shaker style doors with period latch style hardware on the door and bin pulls on the drawers. . . kind of like these:

Toe kicks like the first picture.  My bar has two legs--one on each end that are just like these (only white):

A couple weeks ago I went and picked out my slabs of soapstone, camera in hand. . . and forgot to take a picture.  But this slab looks remarkably like mine. . . as far as I can remember!  It will go almost black when oiled, with light veining.  (I am going down next week to order tile and will try to get a picture of my actual slabs.)

The back splash tile is a hand made, glazed subway tile--"tusk" white.  Farmhouse sink like the first picture.  To see the actual sink, go here.

I am pondering planking my ceiling (like in the first picture)--would you?  I need opinions.  Rob is on the fence, I think I want it, what do you think?

I'm new to looking at your blog and not much of a designer but I would go for planking your ceiling, I think it fits with the style of cabinets and hardware! You are designing my dream kitchen and I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

Here are ideas for tile mural installations , tips on framing the tiles and using field tiles to coordinate with the mural.. Considering the use of found vintage labels and a great way to showcase retro art.
