House Tour: Kitchen

I thought it was about time for me to show some photos of my house on my blog.  I know when I visit other blogs, after I've checked out a few posts and am still interested in seeing more, I next search for house photos.  Do you think that's nosy or voyeuristic?  Eh, I think it's important for people who blog about home design to share what their own homes look like.  After all, you wouldn't trust someone's fashion advice if that person looked like a frumpy slob, would you?

First up is my kitchen.  The photos are a mix of current and when we first moved into the house.  I haven't exactly done any redecorating in here in the three years since we built the house -- no need to.  Oh, and I'm not the best photo stylist, so you won't see carefully put-together vignettes and lots of fresh flowers.  This is just what my kitchen looks like every day.  Well, every day that it's cleaned up, anyway!

I love my super-deep, single-bowl undermount sink!

I think it's important for the fixed features of a house to be appropriate to the house's style.  We designed our kitchen to look like it came from a Craftsman bungalow from the 1920s era, which is the style of our house.  Everything from the shaker-style, inset door cabinets to the cabinet hardware, subway tiles, lighting and countertops are inspired by bungalows from the 1920s.  Of course, we worked in the modern conveniences that allow us to do the cooking and baking that we enjoy, too.

    p.s. I do the same thing when looking at someone else's blog. I want to see their entire house! I think it is just natural to be curious about the way someone lives. :)
