This is long, long overdue, but how about a look at one of the most beautiful kitchens you'll ever see? It's rustic farmhouse meets classic traditional. It's warm and inviting, and it's my parent's.
Drastically different from the kitchen we grew up in, their kitchen is all grown up. It's the kind you dream about, and it was designed by them and constructed with their own two hands (ok, and with lots of help from lots of experts). It was a labor of love, nearly 30 years in the making, so everything is customized perfectly for them.
Mari and I got to spend some time at their house last week (btw: sleeping with your daughter in your old room = surreal!), and I finally got to snap what I love most about it.
Wrought iron chandelier and a vaulted, whitewashed red cedar wood-planked ceiling.
The island and those bar stools.
Custom buffet with hutch.
Awesome, right? Someday.
