This is one of my favorite casual dining areas. I love everything about it – the lantern, the built in seat, the windows. This was in Traditional Home a few years ago.
I recently came across this picture of the dining area in the context of the entire kitchen. It is not quite what I expected, but it is great to see nonetheless. I like that little computer area where you would normally expect a sink – under the arched window that mimics the shape of the window in the dining area. Seeing this picture makes me want to see even more of the house….I know it was in Traditional Home, does anyone know which issue?
Another kitchen that I recently featured was from Connecticut Cottages and Gardens. The fresh feel of this kitchen really appealed to me, as did the beautiful aqua lanterns hanging over the island. A reader from Connecticut directed me to the web site of the company the supplied many of the stone materials in the kitchen, Stepping Stones Marble and Granite.
Here are more pictures of the kitchen from their website! I must admit that I love to see a kitchen that is styled, then see it unstyled. I appreciate seeing a kitchen in the way that the owners would use it on a day to day basis. From this angle, you can see that there is a pantry in the area behind the range. The stools that were placed in front of the island are moved to the side, which makes sense given that the long side of the island does not appear to be made for sitting given that it does not have an overhang.
This view shows a bit of what is on the wall to the left of the range. I love those dot tile accents, in the perfect shade to match the lanterns over the island.
The right side of the kitchen, which has much of the dish and glass storage as well as the microwave. I wonder where the refrigerator is located? Perhaps on the left wall. Again, seeing more pictures of this space makes me want to see even more of the house!
I am working on another post for next week where I saw a single picture of a house, and through ‘friends of the blog’ was able to get pictures of the entire house, including the exterior. Stay tuned…I think you are going to love it!
