I was so excited when I heard about the AyA “BlogPodium Bound” Contest. AyA Kitchens and Baths is flying one Canadian design blogger to Toronto in May for BlogPodium! After everything that I read about the first BlogPodium event, I’m dying to attend the event in May.
The challenge was to create a dream kitchen mood board. Kind of timely since I’ve been working away on my own kitchen facelift for the past few weeks! I skipped over to the AyA Kitchens and Baths website for some inspiration, and here’s what I came up with:
With my love for black and white, it was only natural that I designed a bistro style kitchen with white cabinetry, and a black island. I fell in love with the open shelving in the AyA Kitchens and Baths gallery, so that was a mandatory touch. For practicality, I chose quartz countertops. Classic white subway tile with dark grout emphasises the bistro feel. A professional range with a traditional hood front, both in black, provide contrast and a great focal point. Brass hardware and lighting add warmth, and the bright green tolix stools give a fabulous pop of color!
