ParkView via my phone

Hi you!

Life is hectic right now, I am really really eager to get back to my regular blogging schedule! But for now, my days are full nursing Mungkee and Wren back to health (both are STILL sick!), and running around like a crazy lady with ParkView. I haven't had time to bring my camera over there since last week, but I am excited to keep you updated.

Last week I hit all the stone suppliers to pick out counter materials. The options are endless, but I will give you a little hint about what I chose: it is honed again, but not a material I have used before.

This is what I was up to this weekend. I was a little impatient to wait for the finisher to arrive so I unpacked and set up the vanities where I wanted them. Then I realized that I needed the plumbers before I could make any more progress... 

I love the mixing of wood and stone texture in here. It has a really relaxing, zen feel, but once all my chrome fixtures and sconces are up it will have a little hit of bling.

The counters are being templated and installed this week so the kitchen wall cabinetry is all in place.

The crown and kick plates are still waiting to go in, but I am already in love with the layout.

I had ANOTHER Ikea delivery late last week for all my mudroom, laundry room and kitchen island cabinets which now take over the room. I am so thankful they deliver here because I cannot even imagine moving this all by myself and getting it into my SUV.

A tiny step forward for this kitchen, a huge leap for Parkview!

Have a great Tuesday!

Wow is it ever coming together!! Really enjoying seeing this project unfold Holly! It's neat to see your style manifest in different spaces than your own home :)

Can't wait to see it come together. Looks good so far! I LOVE IKEA delivery. Where we are at, it is a flat $75 fee for all you can imagine! Can't beat it.

Wow, looks great! Are all of your kitchen cabinets from Ikea? I'm loving the dark floors with the white cabinets!

Girl, it's going to be fab!! So sorry Wren is still sick. It's a bad bug!! We had it over spring break. Bah!

Hi Holly, how serendipitous that you are mentioning shopping for countertops! I am currently in the same boat, however I have a 5 month old and live two hours out of Edmonton so shopping around is hard to do! Do you have any suppliers you highly recommend?

Holly Baker said...

Thanks ladies!!

Hi Angela, hope you are doing good! I use Urban Granite for my fabricating, but I source most of my stone at Omni stone. Hari Stones is the other, and they have a huge selection, but I find they have mostly darker colors and focus on granite. Omni has more variety in materials, like marble, sandstone, etc. but they are a smaller warehouse so it can be harder to initially see all the slabs.
Have fun shopping!

Angela Nordstrom said...

Thanks so much Holly!
We are doing great (just tired of course, haha)!
You are the second one to recommend Omni and I like your take on it, because, yes I am looking for LIGHT!

I can't wait to find out what you are doing with the counter tops.. I can't make up my mind, so maybe you can inspire me.. It's coming together so nicely!
