I'm about to remodel my kitchen. It's one of the most important rooms in my home because so much of life and love happens there. It'll be the second kitchen re-do I've undertaken in a ridiculously short period of time. The first was a test of wills with contractors and my patience (of which I have little) but I take full responsibility for my overzealous design ideas and almost impossible requests for structural changes in our condo in Philadelphia which by the way, had been recently renovated very nicely by the previous owner. But I've learned my lesson. The kitchen in our summer home near the New Jersey shore will be as uncomplicated as possible. Yes, it will be a complete gut job but what will replace the 60's style colonial kitchen will be sleek, contemporary and most importantly, simple to build out.

Slate gray will be the dominant color but to punch it up a notch, I've decided to accessorize with small blasts of luscious Lime Green. It's been fun shopping for kitchen accessories that will add the desired "pop" on a modern neutral. I don't know how long I'll stick with this neon hue but the great thing about adding color to a room with interchangeable items is that you can mix things up whenever the mood strikes you without having to hammer a nail. Check out the fun cookware, gadgets, glassware and other tools I've collected below and stay tuned for renovation updates!
