kitchen colors, materials and decor!

Here's a peek at a few of the elements we plan to use in our kitchen.

The countertop is granite in Kashmir White.  With our lower cabinets being a dark grey and the upper cabinets white, I think this counter will tie the two colors together. 
And that fabric? I'm planning to sew it into a roman shade for over the sink.  I think I paid $3.00-$4.00 a yard for it.  Got to love those remnant bins!
I want to install the light fixture you see in here above the sink.  It came out of a local Quaker Oats Factory and only cost me $20.00 thanks to Craigslist.

And then there's this little piece of pottery.

It came from an amazing pottery/gift shop on Ocracoke Island. We spent part of our honeymoon there and Cameron bought it for me.  I was showing it to him last night (it's been packed away while renovating) and he asked me if there was only one.  When I reminded him of how poor we were when we took that trip, he laughed and said he was surprised that he even bought anything!
Needless to say, I'm pretty attached to this bowl and can't wait to have a spot on our open shelving to display it.  I also love that the color works perfectly with the window fabric. Yes, I get excited about those little details!
