Turquoise Beauty

Last week I shared my kitchen inspiration board where you got a glimpse of our new rug.  A rug that we have completely fallen for (not literally though).  You may remember the rug we were all most in agreement on…

 

was sold out so for a close second place I found this little guy from Seasonal Home Concepts.

 

This rug had several great features one being the price.

I was able to snag it for $56 after shipping.  This was way below my budgeted $125 amount!  Before purchasing I searched for coupon codes and found one that offered free shipping.  It made me one happy lady!

Another great feature is that like the World Market rug that stole our hearts first this one is an indoor/outdoor rug.  Indoor/outdoor materials and fabrics are great for areas that get a lot of use (children in the home).  I think I have convinced ML that our furniture from hear on out need to be indoor/outdoor fabric.

This rug is made from recycled plastic, resists moisture, and staining.  If it gets really dirty we can just take it outside and hose it off.  Don’t let the recycled plastic fool you, it is really soft and comfortable to walk on.  It kind of has a little cushion to it.

Now for the drum roll please (tap, tap, tap, tap).

Our Venice Outdoor Rug in it’s new home… our kitchen.    At 4’x6′ this rug is slightly larger than our previous one.

But I think it feels the space nicely.  Plus, since who knows how long it takes us to actually pull off this DIY kitchen renovation the turquoise rug looks great with the red walls in the meantime.

I’m still debating what our next step of action will be.  Counter samples came in last week but I’m thinking either painting the walls or cabinets will be next.

So what do you think?  Have you incorporated any outdoor materials into the interior decor of your home?  Which step would you tackle next in the kitchen?

Oh, and for the complete kitchen run down see how this whole thing got started here, our process of choosing a rug here, and our kitchen inspiration board here?

Kitchen Inspiration Board

The other week I showed you the artwork that I am using as the basis for the design of our kitchen renovation.  Then I shared some rugs that I found that I thought would work well in the kitchen.  I really appreciate everyone’s thoughts and opinions.  The majority of you chose the aqua rug from World Market.

And by the end of it all, I was right there with you… crushing on the aqua rug.  So I decided to go ahead and order it, but when I did, I found out they were sold out of the size I needed.  And it would be on back order for a long time.  Complete let down.  My hopes went up for a little while when I found out that this rug was sold in several other stores, but they were all sold out of the size I needed.  I guess this means we all picked a very popular rug… too bad it’s impossible to find!  So I did what any girl who has aqua/turquoise rug set on her heart would do… I Googled images for aqua/turquoise rugs and found this little guy.

 

He’s a little bit brighter than the original aqua rug from World Market, but I think he fits the job description.  After I showed ML my find, I got the go ahead to order it.  The rug came in last week, and we both love it!  I am looking forward to showing it to you but first wanted to give you a visual idea of what I have in mind for the kitchen renovation, because if you are anything like ML, this will be incredibly helpful to decipher all the thoughts going around in my brain.

My Sunshine Kitchen

It’s not all set in stone yet (no pun intended), except for the rug.  Most of the images are just for inspirational purposes, but this is definitely the look I am going for.  Oh, and did you notice the rug is reversible.  How cool is that?
Since we have a cream colored tile floor, I want to use a darker color on the cabinets.  This will provide a bit of a contrast and eliminate the cream on cream we currently have going on right now.  I want to keep it simple with the backsplash by adding white ceramic subway tile for a classic look.  We hope to update the counter, lighting and hardware as well and finish replacing our appliances, so they will all match (black).
Here’s our kitchen currently for a little visual reference.
I am so excited that the renovation is officially under way with the purchase of the new rug and have already started ordering samples for the counter.  I look forward to sharing the whole process with you!
So what do you think of the rug selection and my kitchen inspiration board?  Which should come first… painting the cabinets, painting the walls, or replacing the counter tops?
