7 Gorgeous Kitchens With Grey Cabinets

Written by Lyndi. Posted in Interior Design, Uncategorized

Don't raise an eyebrow. Open your mind a little, and allow us to completely blow you away with how grey is very much in today. Although it may seem an odd color to introduce in the kitchen, when it's done right, you can turn your drab outdated room into the new, sophisticated, and even glamorous highlight of the house. Now as we promised, allow us to gently prod you over to our side of the fence — the gorgeous, grey side.

 You can close your mouth now. No one looks good gaping. Didn't know grey cabinets could look so shaker-chic did you? This kitchen is beautiful, and the lovely tiled back-splash is highlighted by the embedded lighting. The wooden ceiling beams are absolutely gorgeous in this luxurious kitchen, and all elements compliment each other wonderfully.

You have to appreciate the bottom heavy feel that the lower grey cabinets/island offer in this kitchen. The white upper cabinets work as an accent piece, and they propose a light, and airy atmosphere to the differing tones of grey.

The grey in this kitchen speaks sophistication. Don't you love that the cabinets glimmer, and are complemented by the pink, glass back-splash? The marble wall adds a touch of class too.

You're still wrong if you think grey is cold. We adore the warmth the yellow painted walls and lighting bring to the room. The grey adds some well-balanced formality to the kitchen, while all the other elements enhance a welcoming and warm display.

From the hardwood flooring and grey cabinets to the white beveled arabesque tiles and can lighting, you're stimulated with visual texture which makes this kitchen a ten out of ten.

Grey works in small spaces too. The glossiness of the cabinets combined with the solid wood countertops gives this small kitchen a modern look with a designer's touch. We applaud the homeowners efforts to provide a clean, airy, and spacious look with the use of floating cabinets.

Believe it or not, the cabinets are elongated by use of the grey tone. We highly approve of the grey crown molding that caps the tops to the ceiling to give this kitchen the illusion of height. You can tell this is a custom job that was probably very expensive, but definitely worth it!

Grey cabinets offer a sense of serenity and calmness, but don't be afraid to add just a little bit of chaos in the form of colored accessories and decor. This article was written by Jane from For more kitchen cabinet ideas and inspiration check out Modernize!

New Years Eve Party for KIDS!

Written by Lyndi. Posted in Holidays, Kids & Family Life, Party Planning, Uncategorized

Hello my friends!  I think my new years resolution needs to be to keep up on my blog a little better ('s been crazy)!  I am so excited to start fresh in 2014, and I plan on this upcoming year to be a very happy one for me. 

This New Years Eve, I decided to have a party with kids instead of adults...and I couldn't be happier!  I am thrilled to bring in the new year with them and make it an amazing memory for all of us.  I have come up with some ideas to make the night easy and super FUN!! 


I'm letting my kids invite a few friends and this will be our agenda:

Come in your PJ's: Okay lets be honest, I am doing this first one mostly for myself!  Wearing your pj's just makes everything, you can eat more this way! 

Have Balloons with Written Times:  To make your night and schedule run smoothly, blow up balloons and add a paper with your plan for that specific hour.  When it is that time, let the kids pop the balloon and read what is next on the agenda. They will love this!!


 6:00-Make Individual Homemade Pizzas:  Making your own pizza is always a hit with kids and it gets their creative brain working.  You can make the dough yourself, or just buy the pizza crust already made (that's what I'm doing).  Then, buy pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, peperoni, olives, ham, pineapple, mushrooms, tomatoes, and whatever else you like on your pizza.  Bake them for 10-15 minutes on 375 degrees.  EASY!!


7:00-Make Party Hats: Create your own party hats for your celebration with cardstock and ribbon! Decorate them by using pom-poms, glitter, sequins, glitter glue, ribbon, and anything else you have laying around.

8:00-Make and Decorate Cookies & Sprinkle Topped Milk Glasses


9:00-Play Charades: Come up with topics that have to do with new years eve...a few ideas are: Sparklers, Time Square, Clock, 2014, Balloons, Confetti, Party, Crowd, Goals, Food, Midnight, Ball Drop.

10:00-White Elephant Gift Game, Write New Year Resolutions & Hot Chocolate Bar


11:00 Karaoke & Dance Party!! Turn up the music, dance, sing and have Advil close by!

12:00 Scream, Bang Pots and Pans, Brush their Teeth and go to BED :) !

I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve and a blessed New Year!

Love, Lyndi

P.S. If you want to go by New York time so the kids can go to bed sooner, then change your clocks in the name of your sanity.
