We always love a good kitchen before-and-after! This one is especially interesting to us, since Eric and Christine tore out granite countertops to put in what looks like Corian or manmade stone counters. Is this another sign of the end of granite's domination? Regardless, we just love the sleek, light look of this big family kitchen.

This was quite a big kitchen renovation, as you can see from the photos. They designed it all and had it done in under 3 months, with the help of a custom cabinet maker. They used IKEA cabinet pulls in the kitchen, and the color on the walls is from Behr: Eggshell Crisp Celery.

We can only dream about a kitchen as large as this one, but overall we are so inspired by the light and the combination of warm cabinets and white countertops. We really love this one!
