Make It Slate with GE Appliances

It’s not often that I get to design my own dream Kitchen, but when Blogpodium & GE Appliances came together for the Make It Slate contest, I just couldn’t resist! Design your ultimate dream kitchen with an unlimited budget and have a chance to win a GE appliance of your choice?! Uh, yes please!

When it comes to Design, my personal style is fairly transitional, with a bit of a modern twist. I love the look of simple, contemporary lines and finishes with not a lot of fuss. I also enjoy mixing materials such as high-gloss slab doors for the uppers, with a classic Shaker-style door in a warm wood tone for the base cabinets. Unifying it all together with chrome hardware, adding just enough sparkle to the kitchen for an understated yet elegant look.

Although the colour palette seems a bit muted, I like to add a bit of colour & texture through this navy blue grasscloth, to add some visual interest in the accent areas. Navy is repeated in the upholstery & drapery wherever possible.

The slate finish of the French Door Refrigerator by GE adds warmth and is right on trend! Also, as a self-proclaimed neat freak I certainly appreciate the matte finish to keep fingerprints at bay. I’d be delighted to win one at #Blogpodium this September! Fingers crossed!
