We are moving forward over here at Lady Linton. If you are just joining, you can see how we were impacted by Hurricane Harvey in August 2017. While the process with insurance is not short, it is important to make progress on moving forward. Today, I am sharing a visual for my kitchen inspiration.
We recently picked out appliances, repurchased wood floor tile (you might remember it from here), and I’ve picked out most plumbing fixtures.
To start, I pulled together a board on Pinterest for our remodel. Granted this was not a planned remodel, but we aren’t knocking everything down and rebuilding. For the most part, we are working with our floor plan plus a couple of minor tweaks.
Our house is pretty simple, so the words clean, transitional, and modern all come to mind. What it’s not is mid-century or contemporary. We still have a 1950s ranch house after all!
We are keeping the same Sherwin William paint colors I picked when we moved into our house. along with the same wood tile. I knew I want to keep with white cabinets as this room gets dark given its location in our house. In line with these selections, I am going with light white and gray stone countertops and back splash, a large porcelain under-mount sink in cashmere (a medium gray), and stainless fixtures and appliances. I plan to warm up the room with pops of blue in my kitchen pieces, some mixed metal accents, and textiles.
Many more decisions to come. Thanks for following along in my journey to rebuild after Harvey.
Today is an exciting day over here – the wood tile reveal! After much anticipation, our wood tile and marble entryway are finally complete. We moved most displaced furniture and gave up by the time we got to decor, but otherwise, we are living a normal life – just a little more bare than usual.
I’m really happy with how the wood tile came out. After agonizing over such a big decision, multiple visits to Floor & Decor to confirm Chris’ first pick from our first visit really was THE one, and then going out-of-town during the actual install, I was so relieved to return home to a finished renovation.

This morning starts #demoday at Lady Linton. About one-third of the bamboo flooring is getting traded out for wood tile. As with any change, I’ve been deliberating on my final selection until the 11th hour, but luckily my contractor told me I don’t have to decide today! Demolition and preparing the slab come first and will take a couple of days.
You may have caught a sneak peek last week as I narrowed down my tile options from many samples (would you expect anything less?).
More details to come and follow along on my Instagram story for more real-time updates. I look forward to sharing more about the process of deciding what material and how to pick a material that will last, not go out of style tomorrow, and not break the bank!
In case you are new or don’t remember the original updates (here), you can see what our living area looked like before work began below. Continue Reading →
