So the below kitchen eye candy below that has inspired me. And "yes", I am having a white kitchen but plan to play with colour in the bathrooms and laundry.
I adore the easily achieved character found in simple things such as doors.
We have a shaker door profile going in with Caesarstone Frosty Carrinan 5141. After much deliberation Judy from Verandah House gave me the pro's and con's of marble and at the end of the day we want the kitchen to be practical. We have used Caesarstone before and were extremely happy with it. The edge will probably be a standard pencil edge which is also rather classic. There is a deeper grey product by Caesarstone called London Grey which I think is great as well.
With a little bit of blackboard fun that will be on the door between the pantry and kitchen. Our internal doors are also a shaker profile.
Enough shaking for one day.
