White Kitchen

As most of you know, we spent the last year, plus a few months, building a new house. It is finally finished and we are THRILLED to share our new kitchen with you today.

We spent years planning our dream kitchen and we can’t believe it is ours. Our kitchen turned out better than we imagined thanks to our builder, Fox Group Construction. Our house is everything we hoped for and more! We still walk around pinching ourselves. We really feel like we are living in a dream house and our favorite room is the kitchen. It is the center of our home and the heart of our home. We are looking forward to sharing many meals and lots of laughs with friends and family for years to come.

We wish we could have you all over for dinner or bake you a batch of cookies, but pictures will have to do for now. I listed sources throughout the post, if you have any questions, leave a comment on this post and we will do our best to answer.

Enjoy…and just imagine you are eating cookies while you are taking the kitchen tour. Welcome to our new kitchen!

    1. I thought I had read the floors were Rubio Smoke 5 but now I’m wondering if weathered oak is a stain color?  Love these floors!

  1. I love your new house…especially your kitchen. I am doing a remodel and have real difficulty with size and scale when looking at these beautiful pictures. Would you mind telling me roughly the distance between the farside kitchen wall and the fireplace? I love the idea of 2 “islands”. I love having people in the kitchen when I cook but really need extra counter space for that. Lovely lovely and I bet you are happy to start enjoying.

  2. Love your space!!! We are doing 2 islands in our kitchen also. Could you please share your island sizes? Trying to determine if ours are big enough. Thank you so much! 

  3. Maria & Josh, I love your website. Your house is amazing. What talent you have. You’ve created a beautiful home and you and your family must really enjoy it. Please tell me you have 3 maids that come in every week to keep it clean as I see you have little kids! I wish you all a happy and healthy life in your beautiful home.

  4. This is an absolute dream kitchen and has provided so much inspiration for our new kitchen. I’d like to have enough space for the islands. Would you mind sharing the width of yours? I’m afraid that the ones I have planned are too big. :s

    PS: Love your blog! 🙂

  5. I’m a fan of your kitchen and your recipes!  I know your floors are 5″ white oak select but somewhere it said 5% Rubio monocoat finish and above said Weathered Oak stain.  Do you know which is is?  Whichever, they’re absolutely beautiful!

    1. Do you know what type of finish was applied over the Weathered Oak stain? It appears fairly matte (they’re gorgeous!)

  6. Maria!  Long time reader revisiting your kitchen.  Can you provide more details on your backsplash…is it just a gloss white 3×12? Is it handmade with some “movement” or  “irregularities”? Crackle? Love the look and choosing one for our kitchen.

    Thank you!!!

  7. A dream home indeed, congratulations on this accomplishment. The pictures are quite amazing as well, had to go through them more than once. Beautiful ideas truly came to life here, hard to believe that you did it yourselves, I’m so happy for you.

  8. Just looked at your home, I think it is absolutely fantastic. I am in envy enjoying the tour. Thank you for showing it to all of us & also for giving us so many great recipes to share. LOL

  9. I still love your kitchen everytime I see it. I wanted to see what are the dimensions for your 2 islands. Thanks

  10. Hi! How big is the lower cabinet between your fridge and wall ovens? We will have a similar setup and I’m wondering what size cabinet. Thanks!
