Hello all and welcome to the before and after link up, Labor Day edition! Hope you’re having a lovely holiday weekend!

I’m kicking this month’s highlights with a few kitchens that caught my eye – yes, I’m now unabashedly in love with white kitchens. I think they are classic and never age – you have SO many opportunities to play with color, textures and wood tones in a white kitchen.

I love Jessica’s touch of brick on her kitchen island:

The brick is an unexpected touch that adds some warmth and color that I love!

Laura’s kitchen is gorgeous as well – she painted her cabinets and the backsplash and the difference is astounding:

Her floors, decor and countertops keep a warm feel in this space. It is gorgeous!

I’ve been watching Sally’s kitchen renovation for months and the final result did not disappoint!:

That big island has all kinds of storage and functions, love it all!

OK, I’m done with the kitchens for today. ;) I’ll always love a good DIY orb light fixture and Kristi’s turned out beautifully:

Saving a couple hundred bucks is always a good thing!

I have a feeling I’ve highlighted some of this room before, but it’s so good I don’t even care. ;) Jennifer shared her son’s finished room and it looks SO good:

I LOVE that wood wall and the colors she used throughout. There’s some great storage in there too.

And finally, I was shocked when I read that this floor in Jessica’s bathroom wasn’t tile:

hexagon vinyl floor

I LOVE it! You can see what it is and how to install it here.

As always, there is so much talent at this party every month! If you’d like to be considered for next month’s round up, copy and paste this code at the end of your post or just include a link:
