Home Sweet Home {Kitchen}


The new view into the Kitchen... There was no door there before the renos... Now I have direct access from my kitchen to the Dining Room, making setting the table and keeping an eye on Bren when she's eating, much, much easier!

We actually found this stunning mahogany hutch on Kijiji (for a great price to boot)... Not only do I think it's lovely, it gives me much needed additional storage in the Kitchen and the scale is perfect for our tiny little space...

The hutch houses additional dishes, my saucers that I use for photographing my jewellery, and of course, my cookbooks...

I was determined to keep the counter top as uncluttered as possible... And after a long search for the perfect canisters, I found these clean, simple glass pieces...

The Kitchen used to be green... But with filling in the old doorway and adding another, we knew it would be very difficult to match the paint... So we took the opportunity to re-paint in a slate blue... The rest of the work in the Kitchen (counter tops, new sink, back splash, painting the cupboards) was completed back in the Spring of 2006... The new flooring is bought and will be going in Thanksgiving weekend (hopefully) with the help once again of my dad!

Yes... Those are Christmas lights... I keep them up all year long in the house... I love the festive look in all four seasons!


  1. It's all beautiful.
    I especially admire Jay's expert work on that unexpected ventilation duct in the floor. He is a genius.
    So are you, every detail is perfect.
