Priyanka's kitchen was just fine. Not the prettiest, that's for sure. And it was a little...beige looking. When she was ready to renovate, Priyanka knew exactly what she wanted. Take a peek at what she decided to do with it:

Instead of going with color, Priyanka chose clean, basic white — from the cabinet to island countertops to tile — which a touch of black and gray. The result is bright, fresh and classic enough to last for a lifetime.

From Priyanka:

To provide some contrast to all the white happening here, we decided to do a two stone look. We did not want the island in the middle to look like a big black hole so we chose to do it with the L shaped countertop. Black and white is my all time favorite color combination and figures all over my home. Its definitely a classic, one that I will never tire of. For the backsplash, we chose a subway marble with a small diamond detail in contrasting in slate gray.

For the look of marble, without the maintenance, Priyanka recommends White Princess quartzite, which has similar looking grey veins running across milky white stone. It has a similar classic feel, but she doesn't have to worry about scouring every stain and spill that threaten to etch softer marble.

Many thanks Priyanka, and hope you are enjoying your kitchen! Readers, head over to The Magnolia Street for lots more photos and info!
