A few weeks ago, I shared photos of the inside of our pantry and many of you asked to see our kitchen too.
In our 10 years of married life, Andrew and I have lived in 5 different places…and in every single home, the kitchen was the center of the house. When we started planning and preparing to build our new house, the functionality and design of our kitchen was really one of our biggest priorities.
This kitchen is where we live.
Come on inside our kitchen :).
We wanted the kitchen really open and in the center of the house. We wanted it to be the spot where people gathered.
Three bar stools for three kiddos.
This is our fridge hiding behind those heavy doors.
On either side of my farmhouse sink is a dishwasher.
This is our favorite part of the kitchen (and maybe even my favorite part of the house). We sit up here, the kids play up here, every morning, I read my Bible and have breakfast up here, I can use this space for serving platters during parties, people can sit right there and chat with us while we’re cooking… it’s just a great place right by the big windows looking out.
Right off of the coffee bar area is our little prep kitchen area. This little area (often called a butler’s pantry) is between the kitchen and dining room and holds an extra sink, mini fridge, ice maker and all of our china, seasonal dishes and serving pieces.
The other side of the little prep kitchen area.
We’ve lived in our house about 8 weeks now and the kitchen is most definitely our favorite room. The best parts of my day are spent in that room with my sweet hubby and kiddos.
I hope you enjoyed the tour! I wish I could invite you all in for some coffee and a piece of bundt cake :).

Tomorrow, I’m showing you Smith’s room…I bet you can’t guess what color it is??? 😉
Also, I know some of you will want to know exact names of paints and materials used, so if that’s you, email me and I’ll try and figure it out :).
And speaking of my kitchen…here’s what’s cookin’ in there tonight…
…Andrea’s amazing Pulled Pork!! Seriously one of my very favorite meals!
And thanks to the fabulous Narci D. Photography for the first photo (and my new head shot photo too!).
