I have never given a tour of our new kitchen on the blog. When we moved in this past summer…I just sort of dumped things wherever they landed. It still needs a good organizing…but I have all winter for that right? :) It is the heart of this home. We spend 75% of our time just hanging out in here. We love that it is connected closely with the family room and screened in porch. The kitchen was designed perfectly for us. I snapped a few pictures to share….I didn’t go crazy with Christmas décor in here…because I am still figuring out where I want things. This winter I plan on doing something on the windows…tackle the pantry organization and a few other touches to finish the space a bit. It functions beautifully and everyday I cook in here I love it more…I’m going to stop chit chatting and let you look around… (look….it’s snowing in my kitchen!! #thankspicmonkey:)…
Kept things simple and just used what I had….a tinsel wreath and some berries…a few shiny ornaments in a bowl:)
After you walk through the family room….
…you come upon the dining/kitchen space….
I showed you this space briefly when I made these platter shelves…. I love to start and end my day here…
…so does Stella…. (can you say SPOILED?)…
On the other side of the room is the kitchen….
Just put up a bit of garland over the sink….and a few Christmas boughs on the windows with red ribbon…
Another tinsel wreath on the pantry door….
I talked a little bit about this space (here…and I will be sharing more projects for this space in the new year. We love how this house feels….very comfortable and very useable. All the spaces are family friendly and that fits how we live.
I am going to be taking some time off from the blog. I will be back in the new year…or maybe before:)I do have some yummy New Year’s appetizers to share…:)
I wish you a wonderful Christmas and if you are new here welcome! Please feel free to poke around a bit:) And I know I don’t say it nearly enough…..but thank you.
Thank you for your loyalty, for your kind words about Cleverlyinspired. It has been an amazing 4 years…and much more to come. xoxo
