I am thrilled to be a guest blogger on Emily's blog today. This is quite an honor to me because I have been following Emily for some time now and love her sense of style. When she asked me to share a room I couldn't decide which room to share because they are all work in progress. Is a room ever really finished?
I decided to share our kitchen because this is the room where my family first comes together at the end of a busy day. We cook dinner together and reconnect here. The kitchen used to be a galley kitchen and was only as large as what you see in the pictures above.
We decided that with two little boys, we needed more space...fast. We planned an addition which opened up the room giving us more counter and floor space.
We were able to bring in more light by adding french doors that open to the back garden. And in keeping with our 70+ year old home, we installed heart pine floors.
My favorite part of the entire kitchen is the eating area where we gather around the farm table which has been in our family for generations. The banquette provides extra seating and stores school and craft supplies as well as cook books,etc. One can never have too much storage. I would really like to add colorful geometric rugs to the space and a striped seat cushion. In time...
That's it for the kitchen. If you would like to see more of our little cottage, please stop by my blog.
Thanks again Emily!
