cabinets in chantilly lace

 The house has slowly been moving along.  I have had to pick out paint colors as we start painting this week.  

cabinets in Chantilly lace.

We are doing honed carrara marble counters in the kitchen.

I love the all white kitchen, but my kitchen is rather large so I will be doing the two tone – island one color and the remaining cabinets another color. 

Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace will be the kitchen cabinet color.

Benjamin Moore’s Silversong will be the island cabinet color.

Benjamin Moore’s White Dove is the wall color for the majority of the house.

Benjamin Moore’s Classic Gray will be in some of the rooms.

 Other updates… if you follow me on Instagram (@LePetit_Macaron)… you will know that my doors have arrived! My front door is knotty alder and I love it! 

Also love my interior doors that are three panel – totally like France! Love love love.

Yes, this is such a pretty picture… haha! Trying to determine the size of our wood beam fireplace mantel with a  piece of cardboard and outlines of the sconces that will go there!

A bunch of pictures at tile stores looking at possible backsplashes for above the stove in the kitchen.

Although I confess I do not know if any of the above are in my price range! I just liked them!

And below, considering different tiles for a powder room floor…

Hmmm… considering this toile for dining room drapery.

Alright, I hope you enjoyed the latest house updates!

    Hi Angela,

    Can you or any of your readers recommend recommend a safe cleaner for honed carrara marble countertops? Right now I am using Marchison Hume Counter Safe, but its pretty expensive.

    P.s. Love your blog.

    visiting via Savvy Southern Style. I am new to her link events but I am trying to stop at all the posts that looks like they are design oriented because that is where my interests lie. Your home looks absolutely amazing. Those doors are spectacular. Although my home does not lean French, it will be fun and educational for me to see where you take this. So happy I stopped in.

      Thank you for stopping by my blog – I am glad you found me! My house is mainly French, but there are certainly touches in the house that are not!
