One Room Challenge Now - My Kitchen
This Wednesday, February 26, Linda at Calling It Home is having a One Room Challenge Now linking party with all all the participants of the past One Room Challenges invited to show our rooms as they look today. Likely many of us have made changes to our rooms since the reveals. As I have participated in three challenges, I thought I would do posts today, Tuesday, and Wednesday on my three rooms now.
For my first One Room Challenge, I chose my kitchen. You can follow the entire process here and see the final reveal here. The pictures you see here were taken this Christmas with the room decked out for the holidays. I love what I did with my kitchen. I broke lots of kitchen "decorating rules" in the process like -
*a dramatic crystal chandelier in a room with eight foot ceilings
*a gallery wall
*lots of pink
*lots of Chinoiserie
*high end fabrics like Quadrille and Brunschwig & Fils
*and I adore it - I smile every time I walk in
The only big change in this room is the new refrigerator. The space would only allow my replacing my old smallish refrigerator with a new small refrigerator, but I don't cook, so it's just fine. There's more than enough room for wine and Perrier.
The accessories on the breakfast counter are always changing for holidays or depending on my mood.
Tomorrow we will be looking at my One Room Challenge powder room as it looks today.
