First photo of my new kitchen!

well, it's been a journey - one issue after another. But my kitchen is 95% finished. The sconces were just hung today and my husband took this photo with his smart phone just minutes ago.

I just had to share with everyone. More photos and details to come soon. Thanks to everyone who held my hand along the way when the going was rough.

The tile is the heartthrob of my kitchen and is so more beautiful in person. It glows without getting too showy and has a real depth to it. It stops me in my tracks every time I walk into the room. Form Italy, pricy but so worth it.

So...as Barry Manilow would say "Looks like we made it!"

Thanks, everyone. Here's another photo of same wall with true colors. You all need to come over for a glass of wine because photos can't capture the beauty of the tile. Thanks to resource_queen for sharing it with me.

Wow, that is absolutely gorgeous! Let us know when we need to help with the magazine staging for your kitchen, lol. But seriously, it's magazine-worthy for sure.

Love it all. Sconces look great on the tile wall. Love the arched window (hmmm, giving me an idea..)

Does that window open or is it fixed?

Just lovely!

RE: First photo of my new kitchen!

Thanks again for the nice comments. We're getting ready for the BIG storm, but I wanted to respond to those who asked about my tile.

It is Vetro Bianco Lux from Casamood. When I first ordered a sample, I didn't like it and threw it away. But my mind quickly changed when I saw a photo of it installed in a kitchen.

Be safe, everyone!

It's lovely. So different and elegant. I really love the tile from Italy, it's gorgeous. Your faucet is just like mine, I really do like it. It feels solid and the shape of the spray handle is nice. Love your cabinet color, sink and counter top. Great job!
