I am so excited to share my favorite room of our new home with you guys today! It’s been over a month since we moved in we are slowly but surely making this new house feel like home. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing each room in our home. The house is still a work in progress but we are very much enjoying making it ours!
The kitchen in this house won me over from the moment I stepped foot into it. The granite countertops and excess space was exactly what I was looking for. But we had to rearrange a few things to make it perfect for us. The fridge was moved to the opposite side of the oven then were it was intended. A pantry was placed in the spot where the fridge should’ve been.
About a week after closing Judd managed to get the pantry removed from the cabinets and moved out of the fridge cubby. He rented an appliance dolly and it took both of us to move the fridge into it’s cubby. It fit perfectly! I was thrilled to say the least. It also freed up some space by the dining room table which would make a good area for a hutch.
I love the lighting underneath the cabinets. They come in handy when I write cooking/baking posts! When it comes to decorating I try to use pieces I love to surround myself with. The print below is a favorite from my dear friend and designer, Angela. Her Etsy page is full of super cute prints perfect for home decor!
My mom has helped me accumulate red kitchen pieces over the last few years. I just love how bold and vibrant the color is among the neutral granite.
Another part I love about our home is the dining space. I originally wanted a formal dining room with a breakfast nook but when we saw this house I knew this space would be perfect for our table.
Of course I had to hang my Flower & Garden Festival poster up in our dining room! One of the future projects for this kitchen is going to be re-painting it. I want to try to pick a color from the poster to paint our kitchen with. (Floating around ideas with a muted turquoise/green or blue.)
You’ve probably seen these white planters on the blog before. I bought them from Ikea a few years ago for like $3. Cheap and super cute!
Generally I don’t set the table for show. But I figured since I am showing off this space I would do so! The China is from my great-grandmother. It’s a special occasion type of dinnerware. Vintage and chic!
Our kitchen and dining space is perfect for what we wanted. I spend a lot of time cooking/baking and I wanted a kitchen that really allowed me to do that with ease. This dining space will be host to family events for years to come!
