Some Kitchen Thoughts

We seem to run into delays all the time, so we are not ready to move in yet... The new roof needs to go on. When we bought the place they figured we'd have about 5 years more on it, and it has been five years... So we are putting on a metal roof that looks like a green tiled, shingled roof. And we are putting on solar panels, since the roof is angled and located just right. It will save us money on electricity on our retirement incomes.

I am looking at these navy blue cabinets for the kitchen.  I have a dark green in our home now and I love them.  If I could do them again here, I believe that I would.  But it seems that I should go for a different color just to keep moving on!  The quartz works with the cabinets, the sink, the other woodwork, the walls.

Here are some cabinet knobs I'm considering.  Remember I'm trying to take into consideration the lighting fixtures also!

I love the painted ones, but am wondering if they will be just too busy and distracting.  I want them to make me smile, but not in a crazy way!  Maybe I should order one of each to see what they look like.  Maybe I should use one of each!

I think I see which one it should be now that I have them all together with the lighting fixtures.  That orange one - looks like the flower on the cream porcelain beside it and a flower in the stained glass.  Not too distracting, and still colorful!  It has a bit of green like the kitchen wall also.  That was not a serious contender until I saw it with the rest of the stuff!  I thought it was going to be the first blue one.
