House Tour - The Kitchen

I promised a house tour this week, so today we are starting with the kitchen. This was the room I made over for my first One Room Challenge last summer. To see the entire process, you can click on the pink ORC button in my sidebar. Above is the room this morning.

  1. What a wonderful room in which to start the day. And I love how you've remained true to your theme. Too often, I get distracted by things that just won't work...anywhere!

    Love it!

    Your Chinoiserie accessories are all stunning and fabulous choices in making the kitchen look more like a real room than just a functional space. Love it!
