This is the kitchen, it is very big because the house is very big. My family is also in the kitchen all the time. It is one of my favorite room.
I have white trims and white paneling in the house so to continue the theme. The cabinets are off white with a brown glaze. The wall color is a warm brown who matches the back splash tile. The color is lighter but goes well with the tiles. It help make the kitchen flow and look more spacious. The ceilings are Aqua blue.
The double stove is a professional range. In France we cook everything from scratch. This is how i learned to cook.
The tile on the back splash is called "subway tile" We have this in the Parisian subway, on the walls and ceilings. The tile is a crackle porcelain tile. I only use Porcelain if it is very special and pretty.
You can see, i don't have a lot of accessories on the counters. I have 2 year old who climb on the counters and dances...HAHAHA...She brakes everything too. All decoration is high, out of reach.
You can see a little bit of the breakfast nook on the right.
I will post about it later.
I was looking everywhere for a "toile" back splash and could not find one. So i made it!!!
I will give you a tutorial tomorrow .
You cans see a disposal on the left. The kids would play with the buttons and broke it the first week. So we don't use it. :)
The Sub Zero fridge.
It is huge. So love it.
I love this clock. It says "Bistro du Dauphin" A very famous Dauphin was Marie-Antoinette's son because of his tragic death. The name Dauphin was used for t
A warming drawer..very useful.
3 small chandeliers hanging above the biggest island. They are form Lowes or home depot on line. I ordered and find all the Chandeliers. I am so picky about them and was not going to spend a fortune. Love them. Got the shade at Lowes.
You can tell the ceilings are Aqua blue in the kitchen.
I never had a microwave before living in the States. It is a luxury in France.
There is 2 sinks. One by the fridge and one on the other end of kitchen.
I can see the back of the house from the kitchen.The family room is next to the kitchen and open to it. We are always in these 2 rooms.
The floor is cobblestone, in an Antique pattern. All Tile stores have tile layout handouts. Natural stones add value to your home.
The counter tops are black granite. It is important that the floor and counter tops go together. The floor has gray...goes well with black. This is a key for a well put together kitchen.
This is my last house. We do not live there anymore.
At least i could design another one :)
Thanks for liking my design .
