A FARMHOUSE KITCHEN UPDATED AND OPENED UP

I found a wonderful kitchen to share with you today.
It's in a renovated farmhouse and I think you'll love the charming details 
that give it the farmhouse feeling.

The first thing I noticed was the beautiful shelf above the stove that creates the 
feeling of a mantel and is a focal point for the kitchen. 
And the warm wood is a wonderful contrast to the creamy white cabinets.

I love using plates for wall decor and the ones used here fit in perfectly
with the style of the kitchen.

The furniture detail at the base of the cabinets adds a lot of charm as well as the 
oiled rubbed bronze cup pulls on the drawers.
The island has two levels and is the same warm wood as the shelf over the stove.
Did you notice that there are two different countertop materials used on the island?.
I really like those bar stools too.

The walls are a beautiful shade of blue ~ perfect for a country kitchen.

The corner shown below has a pantry and little cubby for the microwave.
I think the microwave might be a little inconvenient if you use it a lot but it is
 kind of nice that it's tucked out of the way.

The owners were able to open up the kitchen to the family room by using glass
on both sides of the upper cabinets and a pretty arch above the sink.

There is so much wonderful craftsmanship throughout every corner.

I think I would feel very at home in this kitchen.
How about you ~ do you like it?

  3. Such wonderful touches in this kitchen. I love how the chairs face each other at the island -- much better for conversation. I don't understand why new kitchens put microwaves below the counters. I find it awkward in my kids' kitchen and tempting for the little children.

  4. Very charming kitchen ... The warmth of materials used create a very approachable kitchen space. Love all the thought out touches, especially love the lighting in the upper cabinets that add to the cozy appeal.

  5. Beautiful!

    I love the color and the glass doors of the cabinets. I have a long list of wishes, but one is to change our cabinet doors to windows.
