We all know that the kitchen is the heart of the home. The cozy warmth of a boiling kettle on a cold morning; the laughter of friends joking around with one another as a meal comes together; the anticipation of sweet comfort as a cake bakes and my favorite: sitting down to dinner with Thom after a long day.
I, like many of us, have fantasied about my dream kitchen for years. I have a folder of magazine clippings and a board full of pins
featuring bright and airy country inspired kitchens. When we found our
house I knew I was still years away from that dream kitchen. Recently
renovated this kitchen has updated appliances, cabinets and flooring. It
doesn't need anything. But it's not my dream. Instead of bright
white and shades of calming blue we have muted shades of brown and
beige. Where I envision country touches we have contemporary flourishes.
