They Way We Live Now - Kitchen

Cabinets: Rushmore Maple Butterscotch Glaze
Floors: Sugar Creek Maple, Color: Cinnamon
Countertops: Black Pearl/Brazil Black



      Sure, you saw the kitchen before, when it was still bare. Before we had our own personal treasures in the house. Here it is today, right after we had some eggs and bacon. They taste way better in this kitchen, too, let me tell ya'. As you can see, I haven't done anything to it yet. I'm waiting for the perfect inspiration before I do something up around the window. I'm thinking about some small rounded shelves, but I haven't visualized the 'just right' thing yet. I think I might leave the window itself bare. Or just hang a little string of hankies or something up there. I don't want anything to obstruct my light or my view.

     Please ignore the fingerprints, crumbs, swiffer, or whatever else you find wrong with these pictures. I was lucky to get a couple which weren't totally blurry! I love this kitchen with it's deep sinks, awesome faucet, and all of the delightful functional little details!

p.s. If my whole house had a theme, that theme would have to be: Candy.

  1. Your kitchen is really beautiful. Seriously. I think it is smart to wait on making decorating decisions until you really get a feel for what the space says to you.

  2. Gorgeous! Another possibility for over the kitchen sink is a cornice board. It's a way to add a decorative feature without blocking your view and you could mount it higher than the window to make the window appear larger. Just a thought :)

  3. You were able to get the microwave over the gas stove? We were told it was against code and had to move it to next to the fridge! I guess the codes vary from state to state...

  5. Which model of range is that? I can't remember which one I have but I know it's stainless and gas - that one looks great, how do you like it?

  6. Sure Sam, any time. Come on over!

    Lazybones, I will have to check for you, but I can say it's the one with five burners and a turbo boil (or something like that) on one of the burners. I love it. I bought a glass cooktop last time and I couldn't wait to go back to a gas stove.
