Florida Decor - Kitchen









When designing the kitchen for our new home in Florida, I knew that I wanted an all white kitchen. Definitely white cabinets and white countertops (Corian). I wasn't sure about the direction to take the backsplash, but ultimately went with white tile and a neutral small square stone accent strip to add texture and interest.

We had to make many of the decisions in a hurry and went with simple, brushed nickel cabinet and drawer knobs, but may change to something more stylish later. We splurged on the pendant lights and love their modern style, shape and texture. The counter stools are the perfect color for the coastal, beachy feel of our home and I was thrilled to find them at a very good price. I'm still on the lookout for something really unique to sit on the island, but for now I have been enjoying the simplicity of fresh flowers in a pretty vase.

Other details I love are the crown molding, the tall cabinets (I need a step stool to reach the top shelves), the gas stove and oven and the big walk in pantry. It's simple, modern and bright and a perfect contrast to the colorful accent pieces in the adjoining open concept spaces. I love combining modern and casual; as well as neutrals with pops of color.

Happy Tuesday!



  1. Happy Tuesday to you too! LOVE your bright white kitchen:) I have white cabinets too and love them still today after 15 years! Enjoy your day dear Vicki, HUGS!

  2. Gorgeous! We have a very "brown" kitchen and I just love the look of all white!

  3. Your light fittings are gorgeous! I also love your all white kitchen. White is so versatile and never gets boring. Easy to accessorise, too. Have fun cooking and entertaining in this new space. x

  4. So bright and airy. I love our Corian countertops. Love the backsplash you chose as well.

  5. That is such a pleasing, calm space. I envy it.
