The Heart of Our Home

I thought I'd feature my kitchen next.  I LOVE my kitchen.  It's very fun and funky and totally me.  I have many collections of random things I love in this room.  The color is continued from the living room since everything is open to each other.  I ordered my cabinets with a glaze over them because I like the aged look.  It was the right fit for me. 

My absolute favorite thing in my kitchen is the island.  My husband and I went to a juried antique show to find this baby.  For those of you that don't go antiquing a juried show means only people with true antiques - old paint - etc are allowed to show.  This show had AMAZING pieces.  I seriously could have dropped a fortune there b/c the cabinets were expensive and to die for!  My husband and I snatched this island up for $325.  Some of my friends may think that's crazy expensive, but it was totally worth it!  You can't go out and find one of these treasures every day!  It is actually an old store counter from the late 1800's.


  1. I love your style and I love how you've decorated your home! it's awesome. I bet it is so nice to have such a colorful and character filled home :)

  2. Wow- Your style is very unique and brave-- I LOVE the color...such a nice change from all the monochromatics we are used to seeing.

  3. Wow! That kitchen island is a knock out! You got a steal of a deal and I am sure it will become a family heirloom! Beautiful!

  4. Holy... color!
    I wish I had your guts! I LOVE it!
    And- I want to see those cabinets close up.
    We are going to redo ours. By we, I mean... Hubs. Shhh, he doesn't know yet. I'm hoping I can just leave him a nice little note again.
    Although, I should probably raise the stakes a little. I think when I go out to purchase his annual golf pass from the club, I'll use that as the 'love note'... :)

    The island is amazing. It would look perfect in my house.
    I'll send hubs over tomorrow to pick it up, thanks! :)

  5. That island is a show stopper! What an amazing piece. And I just love your colorful, funky kitchen. You are so confident in your decorating style and it is infectious. Thanks for sharing.


Thank you so much for your kind words & support! I love hearing from you & read each and every comment you leave for me! ~Annie
