ORC: The Biggest Little Kitchen Week Two: Design Plan

It's Week Two of the One Room Challenge!  Our kitchen (see week one) is coming right along, and thankfully our energy and motivation levels are not being depleted as quickly as our bank account; this was a very expensive week! 
Knowing that our footprint is so small (10 feet by 10 feet), it was important to us to make the space feel spacious and luxe.  I tried to choose finishes that accomplished that without completely bankrupting us.  
We will have cream shaker cabinets (IKEA), a greenish black soapstone for the counters and backsplash, polished nickel hardware (with some matte black thrown in here and there), the same gray-brown wood look floors as the rest of our house, and stainless appliances.  I'm still shopping for lighting and shelving, so I'm not sure where we'll land on those quite yet.

IKEA broke my heart and lost our kitchen design, so I decided to quickly (if multiple hours is quick, haha) recreate it on a sketch pad.
Real time update: floors are install…
