It is where the meals are cooked with love, it is where, as homemakers we wait...and wait
for those that we love to "come home."
The kitchen; a place where all of those special meals are prepared.
Birthdays, holidays, welcome home meals, soothing hurt meals, loving you meals.
The kitchen where so many dreams are discussed and therapy sessions take place.
Our kitchen is not huge, but it is cozy, functional and symbolizes home to me.
It is where we welcome the loves of our life and where I cook daily.
Meals are prepared with time and care for my loving husband.
My husband always appreciates the cooking I do, and although even now, my meals are
not always perfect, they are perfectly prepared with love.
Our kitchen is not totally open concept, because you know, I grew up when a kitchen was a
kitchen and a living room was a living room.
I am all for whatever makes you feel comfortable in the design of your home, so for me this
is comfort, familiarity and I like it.
One of my favorite features in our kitchen is the tongue and groove pine ceiling, it sets the
tone for old fashioned goodness.
Do you have a favorite detail in your kitchen?
I think my pot filler is pretty and yet I have never used it!
It is definitely on my to do list...smile.
We splurged a tad on the lighting, because in a functional kitchen it is very important to
layer lighting for all of the tasks that go on in the hub of the home.
We love our white kitchen but we combined some custom stained knotty alder built in
Our kitchen island and this hutch are both knotty alder.
Do you see the little scallops on the hutch?
Well, the young cabinet maker was a little worried about how they would turn out, he
thought it might make the kitchen look too Grandmother like.
In the end he liked it too!
Blending the white and natural wood creates warmth, depth, interest and showcases many
of our vintage pieces.
I have enjoyed unpacking boxes, because I have found treasures that were long forgotten.
Whatever your kitchen looks like, however you choose to decorate it, please just remember
It really is the heart of your home, and one of the best places to make timeless memories.
