Well hello there! How's your week going? Mine has been interesting for sure. I'll get into that on another day.
Today I want to share my Dining Room and Kitchen. Like I said last week, I had plantation shutters installed on all the windows. They make my heart go pitter patter. hee,hee,hee
The four paintings hanging there are originals by Jennifer Lanne. My dear friends Mary Kay and Marianne in New Bern did the framing for me. They own a wonderful framing shop there.
This was the original light fixture that came with the house. Everyone in our neighborhood has the same light fixture. So, since I'm taking my house from "Builder Grade" to "HomeMayd," I had David install the light you see in the photo above. It came from Ballard Designs. I love the simple forged iron look and the check chain cover.
After having white cabinets for 14 years, I decided to go with ebony cabinets this time. They aren't pure black, but more like espresso beans.
We added our own knobs to the cabinets. I found these on Wayfair.
Of course, my kitchen wouldn't be finished without my Harrington and Hannah hand-painted soap dispenser, which was created for me by my talented friend, Natasha. I treasure this piece so much.
This is Bob and Larry, the buffet bunnies. hee,hee,hee. They enjoy serving up some tasty vegetables to our guests. I found them at Pottery Barn last year when I was out shopping with Lydia.
Like many of us I don't have a house phone anymore, but I couldn't resist buying this old phone I found on Ebay. I think it's fun in the kitchen and reminds me of days gone by.
I love the way the light comes in this space. What do you think?
Light, love and hugs to you,
