Hello Dear Readers!
It’s not a bad kitchen at all, just a bit different than what I am used to.
Apparently, the husband of the couple that built
this house totally designed the kitchen from the cabinetry
to the tile, to the granite, to the appliances, to the everything.
This kitchen design was definitely customized to the users (two work stations).
So here we go . . .
THE BERRY PATCH KITCHEN REVEAL
The tiles are light caramel and terra cotta in color.
The copper items seems to go well with the colors in the kitchen.
Here is the view as you step into the kitchen from the Great Room side.
As I stated previously, there are two work stations vs. a kitchen with one large island.
One that is a peninsula that the main work area.
The main sink is below the window where I have a great view.
I have hesitated so many times with presenting the kitchen at the Berry Patch House.
The view from the window:
Please excuse the quality of the photos today…the light in this room is not stellar.
I tried using my camera, and it seemed that the iPhone worked better…..go figure.
I think it was the poor natural lighting in the room and the back light…
Double ovens and a warming drawer are in the main work station.
I have only used the dishwasher once….it is the drawer type
and believe me, you cannot fit much into them! I think they were very popular about 8 or so
years ago…..but from what I can understand from the appliance store,
they do not sell many anymore. I know I will be getting a “regular” one!
The above is the area to the right of the sink with my new/old Willow Ware.
Below in the main area has two cabinets with glass fronts.
Now to the “cooking station” of the kitchen.
My copper pots that I purchased in France about 5 years ago (wow has it been that long?)
hang above the stove. I used large clear Command Hooks on the tile and they hold the pots
very well. I used these in my previous home.
The two wonderful copper pots on the Pottery Barn candle holders are by Williams-Sonoma
that were made in France. I purchased them at an amazing estate sale and wish there
were more pieces to that collection. The copper berry bucket I purchased in 1990
at a Country Living Craft Fair. The breadboards are gifts from my son.
Breadboards, Herbs de Provence, and French olive oil grace the counter to the left of the stove.
You can also see the faucet of the second sink below. The second work station.
The second work station:
This peninsula/work station is open to the Great Room.
Bar Stools are at the end of this work station.
There it is…the Berry Patch Kitchen.
Hope you enjoyed the kitchen tour.
And…. on another note:
My hubby and I met with our kitchen cabinet/designer person on Monday.
We made more tweaks to the plan, and now I think we “have a plan”
This is what was happening last Friday:
When they were excavating our lot, there were many very large (approximately 5,000 lb) boulders
unearthed, along with many other large rocks/boulders.
So rather than carting those huge boulders off, we met with the excavator and placed
them throughout the lot. We created three large rock gardens toward the back of the property.
Can’t wait to place trees and plantings around them.
Also, have you entered the Giveaway of the Enduring Southern Homes (by Eric Ross) Book?
Yes, I am giving away a copy of his book to one lucky reader. Still time to enter HERE.
Have a most beautiful day!!!
