Pictures of Our Kitchen

Finally!! I'm posting some pictures of our finished kitchen!  Yay!  It seems fitting to post them on Thanksgiving when so many of us will be spending so much time in our kitchens.  Not me though, we'll be celebrating with my parents and my brother and his family. Hence the reason I have time to take photos and write a blog post.  I won't say too much, because I know you'd rather just see the pics, other than I'm absolutely head over heels for the space.  When we moved in this home 5 years ago, I cut my kitchen size down to about 1/3 of what I had in our previous home.  Surprisingly, I've learned that I prefer cooking in a smaller kitchen. It's more efficient, easier to clean up {especially the floors} and you are forced to keep only what you really need and use often.  My dream kitchen would have space for a long farmhouse table in the middle like this one, but other than that, I really couldn't ask for more.  I'm nuts about the paint colors, the fabrics, the lighting, the sink, faucet, counters, gas cooking, and open shelving.  I wanted the finished space feel feel warm and utilitarian at the same time. Like a cross between a cozy English country kitchen and the movie kitchen from It's Complicated.  I feel like I accomplished it! {please excuse my lack of styling.  I didn't notice the wine bottle till I was on my last picture and I didn't have a chance to run to the store and buy pretty flowers, so a handful of parsley in a glass sufficed ~ keeping it real my friends!}

    1. the fabric would look gorgeous as drapery or as a valence with a bamboo shade. i probably wouldn't do a roman shade and a bamboo shade on the same window though, but that is just personal preference. the fabric was order through Hollywood Home.

    2. hi michelle!! thank you so much!! :) we just got back from vacation and I missed my kitchen while we were gone. it is such a small space and nothing like anyone's typical dream kitchen, but it makes me happy. so thank you for the compliments. regarding the paint, the painters said it was nice to work with, said it was very thick but went nicely. to be honest, i can't really tell the difference between FB and the ben moore paint i have everywhere else in the house. but i fell in love with their colors and i liked the way they changed with the shifting light i have in our kitchen, so that's why I choose them. I have oil paint on all my woodwork in the house and I absolutely love it, so the real test for the FB paint is how it will hold up compared to the oil based paint everywhere else. it's too soon to tell. hope you had a nice thanksgiving!!! xoxo

  43. Hi! I love love your kitchen. Can you tell me about your countertops? Are they marble or something else? Also do you your shades pull down or are they "faux" roman shades? Last question, did you update your existing cabinets or are they new? I have a 50's kitchen and it seems like a lot of these ideas could be implemented without new cabinets!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Lauren, thank you. My counters are Silestone, which is quartz. i am very happy with them. My shades are real romans but I will never lower them. My seamstress had to make them into real shades to get the look I wanted with the folds. The cabinets are solid cherry and they were in the kitchen when we moved in, but are not original to the house. The were in really good shape so replacing them didn't make sense. I think cherry and maple cabinets paint beautifully b/c you can't see the wood grain. Good luck with your kitchen!

    Absolutely lovely kitchen. You clearly poured your heart in to each and every choice and detail and it shows. So impressed with the charm and warmth of your remodel and the subtlety of the improvements and updates. Your selections were respective of your home's style.

  46. Tessa - your kitchen is absolutely lovely! I enjoyed looking at it last month when you posted, but wanted to ask you about your GE Cafe range. We are renovating our home and I'm considering GE Cafe (would be the same dual fuel range). Are you pleased with it? I do a ton of cooking so I want to make sure it can stand up to the job!

    Thanks so much and beautiful job with your kitchen!

    1. Hi Rachel,
      As you know I do A LOT of cooking too, and so far so good with the range. I really do like it, I'm happy to have gas again after 5 years without it, and the oven seems to be reliable. The 5 burners offer a lot of flexibility and good flame control, plus the simmer burner is a true simmer. I also like the look, the big chunky knobs, the grate design, etc. In the price range it is still my favorite option. I would not say that I LOVE the range though. I really wanted the durability of a true professional range like a Viking. I tried to rationalize that I could live without, but honestly, I still wish I had just gotten what I really wanted. I probably will buy my dream range in about 5 years. The reviews on Garden Web are very spot on to my experience thus far, so I would suggest reading those as well. Good luck!! xo

      ps. if you don't need a slide in, I would also suggest looking at Blue Star, if I didn't have my stove in my island I would have gotten a Blue Star.

    2. Tessa,

      Thanks for the feedback. That is what I have heard about GE Cafe, for the price, that it really is the best (I need the slide in, too). I'm with you on the TRUE pro ranges, I keep telling myself that I'll have a 48" viking in our forever home someday! We'll see about that : ) -Rachel

  47. Hi Tessa-
    I am looking at the silestone lagoon (as well as misty carrara from caesarstone) as an alternate to marble. From the tiny samples I've seen in person and online, the silestone looks a bit more natural and a little cooler in color overall. Are you happy with the silestone? Overall does it read as a white or a grey? Is it a cool tone? Do you by any chance have any more pictures? I would love to see a larger area to get a better look at the patterns. It is so hard to tell from a 2x3 piece! Your photos have been really helpful so far, thanks!

    1. Yes! The sink took a little getting used to b/c I'm on the taller side and it sits lower than our old one, but now that I'm used to that I absolutely LOVE it and would list it at the top of my favorite things in the kitchen! Couldn't live without it! The faucet is heavy duty and I expect should hold up well for years to come. It's a beauty and super functional. wouldn't choose differently!

  59. I absolutely love your kitchen! I'm beginning the process of redoing mine and I have been doing a lot of research and I love everything about your kitchen! I know you do a lot of cooking and I have a question on the practical side! Where do you keep your garbage can? Right now mine is under my sink but if I go with the Shaw farmhouse sink,(which I love!), I'm afraid it will do away with the cabinet space under the sink and there won't be room for the garbage can! I have a relatively small kitchen too, so space is at a premium!
    I was also wondering if the sink was hard to get used to since it's rather low, but I saw your previous response!
    Thanks so much!

    1. Stacy, so funny that you are the first to ask about this! honestly, i keep a small trashcan out and by the island. It's relatively inconspicuous and I like that I can easily pull it next to me when I'm prepping food. But when we have company (or i take pics for the blog! ha!) i pop it in the garage which is right next to my kitchen and keep a small one under the sink for those occasions too. You'll still have space for a small one with the sink but unless you want to take out the trash multiple times a day, you'll need another larger one nearby. Not ideal, but it's worth it to have the sink. I too used to keep our old trash under the sink. I adore the sink. There is more splashing with the type of faucet I choose and such a deep sink but you get used to that too and i wouldn't choose otherwise. Best of luck!

  69. Tessa - Hi!! We are considering the GE Cafe, as well, but I just seen the actual range in a local Home Depot store and was surprised by the coloring of the stainless. It was right next to another stainless model of a different brand and it was clearly different. It almost looked like it had a gold tint to it. Since then, we have seen 2 other GE models and each one is the same way. It seems the stainless is just a bit different than other brands stainless. The thing is, though, our other appliances are not GE. I was just wondering if you have noticed this at all. Does it look like a true silver stainless? Does it match your other appliances? THANKS!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hi tammy, hmmm, that seems strange. we have other brands of SS appliances in the kitchen and the range seems to match exactly. it sits opposite a bosch dishwasher and the finish looks identical. no gold tint at all. good luck!

  71. Sorry - another quick question. We are trying to decide between Silestone Lyra and Silestone Lagoon. Are you pretty happy with your choice in Lagoon? Would you say that the base color is a gray or more of a neutral off-white? Our cabinets will be painted Benjamin Moore White Dove. Thanks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. i think it depends on the look you want. the Lyra was too white for our kitchen, but we don't have any real white in there other than the dishes and sink, so it felt off. the lagoon is def. more gray but compliments our cabinet, wall and trim colors far better. it is often confused for marble by others but honestly i think if you truly want the look of marble you'll only be happy with the real thing, you need to love the quartz on it's own if that makes sense. both options are very pretty but i'd choose quartz all over again!

  75. Tessa, quick question on your counters. Did you go with just a standard eased edge? It looks like it. Have you noticed any chips, especially around your sink? I've been warned by our fabricator (Silestone Lagoon is what we chose, too) that the eased edge is prone to chipping. I'm a little worried about my decision. Maybe I should switch to a double radius or pencil edge. THANKS!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. interesting. in all my research i never read or heard of that being a problem. and no, not with us either and we are hard on them. so far so good with ours and they do have the standard edge. we do have an under-mount sink, not sure if that makes it better or worse, but i wouldn't worry too much. i think fabricators want everyone to get granite. at least that's how if felt when we were looking. they pushed granite so hard and discouraged everything else! good luck!
