our kitchen story

welcome to our diy kitchen remodel! my husband, sean + I spent about 5 years total remodeling our house room by room. we were ameateurs when we first started  – but with a lot of help from my dad, we were able to completely renovate our home into the beautiful, cozy, farmhouse home you see today! our kitchen is my favorite spot in the house! 

the details


we went with white shaker cabinets with dove tail drawers + soft closures. we worked with a local cabinet company so I am unable to link them, but if you tell them this style your local company can help you!

cabinet pulls

we snagged our cabinet pulls from amazon and are SUPER happy with them! we got them in several different sizes to fit our cabinets, but the main two can be shopped here:


I went back and forth if I wanted a pop of color, a fun shape, or just traditional subway tile.. this was probably the hardest decisions of the entire kitchen! but we decided to go with this beautiful marble mosaic tile and really love it. 


we absolutely fell in love with matte black fixtures and have loved the faucet we picked out from VIGO! somewhat affordable compared to lots of faucets on the market + and super high quality!

sink + counters

we went with a quartz counter and could not be happier – I will likely never have a different counter type in my home again! we worked with a local counter company who also installed our sink – which is the brand: BLANCO

we absolutely love it and it’s extremely durable, doesn’t stain, or scratch!

light fixtures

we have two pendants above our island that are so timeless and cozy! I did end up spray painting them matte black once I got them home – as they were more of a bronze finish originally. 

counter stools

this was such a hard item to find!! I wanted something wood, but also light and not super dark – but finally found the perfect set of counter stools at world market! they are a bit of a splurge, but have held up so well + we love them!

glass dome aria diffuser

one of my very favorite parts of the kitchen is my glass dome aria diffuser! everyone who walks in our home always sees it and asks about it, it makes our home smell heavenly, and it looks so beautiful!


you can click the link above + simply search “aria diffuser” + add the bundle or diffuser itself to your cart! you can also learn more about essential oils here: essential oils + natural products


nespresso verturo

the frothiest at home coffee maker we’ve tried! worth every penny & a splurge item we use every single day!

supplement rack

we like to keep our supplements out where we can see them so we remember to actually take them! but I hateee clutter! so this rack is perfect for us! read more about my supplement routine here: Supplement Routine
