Last week I showed you the open shelving we installed in the bar area of the kitchen (you can see it on the right below):
And here’s a better shot:
I had to do very little to this kitchen; it was already pretty fabulous. The cabinets are all custom and a creamy white with brown detailing. If I had to name the style I’d definitely call it French country.
I did give the walls a coat of Sherwin Williams Sea Salt; it doesn’t look as blue on the wall as it does in the photos. I am, however, not in love with it in this space, so I’ll probably be painting again soon.
I love the copper lanterns; I’ve already been asked for the source and I’m pretty sure it’s this one in the copper patina finish.
Do you see my bread box was damaged in the move? The handle is a little wonky now. 🙁
I use the counter space to the left of the refrigerator as my baking station.
Copper pots on the pot rack over the cooktop continue the look of the lanterns.
I’m not going to lie, the ice maker has been absolutely addicting–now how will I live without one in our next house?! And the wine fridge is now full after a quick trip to Raleigh and Trader Joe’s (oh, how I have missed you, TJ’s!!).
The room just to the left of the ovens is my office; it was originally a formal living room but since Sunny dog is too old and stiff to climb upstairs to the office area up there, we made some changes to accommodate him. Now he can be part of the action, such as it is, as I sit at the computer or fill Etsy orders.
Here’s the view back from the office. The window over the sink looks out over the back yard and the golf course. Not a bad view!
The open shelves on the end of the cabinets were fun to accessorize, too.
You might have noticed that we don’t have a spot for our kitchen table in here; that was an easy fix since the dining room (coming soon!) is right around the corner, and the great room is big enough for our big kitchen table. We pushed that up against the big window that overlooks the back yard and we eat there most nights. I’ll show you that room soon, although it’s nowhere near finished!
There’s also a large pantry off the back of the kitchen on the way to the garage. I have big plans for that space that include built in shelving, but first I need to finish unpacking all the boxes!
