Sister's Home Tour Continues.....

5.03.2010

.......with her cute cottage kitchen and breakfast room. I took quite a few pictures of these rooms so that you could take in all the goodies she has in here. So grab you a snack and something to drink and enjoy!




























































This Pottery Barn armoire stores the computer.



























I love how she painted chalkboard paint on the end of the cabinets here and
created this cute message center.



This is the hall wall right outside the kitchen.



I hope you enjoyed the tour of my sister's house. This is how it looked when I was last there. Once she looks at her pictures on my blog she will probably start making changes. She made several changes to the other rooms I showed you right after she looked at my blog and emailed some of them to me. She is so funny. I am sure she will make changes in here, too.


Linking to A Stroll Thru Life  for Tabletop Tuesdays with Marty.
Please check out the other party participants this week for some great table and shelving vignettes 
and inspiration.



Love to hear from you!


Y'all come back now,


KIM

  1. Oh I could just move right in and be happy as pie. This is just all beautiful. I love her vignettes on the tables, counters and above the cabinets. What a beautiful home. Thanks so much for the tour. Great eye candy and inspiration. Thanks also for linking to the party. This was a real treat. Hugs, Marty

  2. How beautiful! I love the table at an angle and the pretty chest with the rooster painted on the front. The wire baskets with papers in them is an idea I would like to copy! I need to look for those! What a beautiful, comfortable home! ♥

  3. Kim, I love painted white cabinets in a kitchen. Your sister's house is beautiful & I love her breakfast room. I was thinking that Debbie might like that painted cabinet in the corner with the rooster on it! I also love the green walls.
    Thanks for posting!

  4. Kim...I have so enjoyed you sister's home! It is just perfect! I love this cottage kitchen and I could spend hours looking at all of her finishing touches...the thing that make a house a home! I think that is my favorite thing about both of your homes...you don't forget even the tiniest detail! So many people get to a point in their decorating then stop...you both seem to be aware of the importance of the accessories...

    I love visiting your blog and you can find me lurking around quite often;)!

    Enjoy!

  6. Your sister has a lovely kitchen. I laugh at the changing things. I used to change things all the time...my hubby would wake up and the couch was moved...but no more. Things just stay the same!

  8. A beautiful kitchen. I love her fabric in the curtains. Did you sew them?

  9. Your sister is certainly talented. I got some nice ideas just looking at these pictures. I inherited many items from my parents' home last year and they're still packed up. Time to unpack and start placing some new things. Very inspiring post!
    Thanks,

  27. So many details yet not over done. And yes, you two must have had the best decorated play kitchen of anyone in your town when you were growing up ;) Especially love the glimpse into her dining room; we had the same color in our old Roswell house. I miss it. Thank you for reminding me.

    Hope your family is drying out in Tenn without too much lasting impact.

    Have a great week!

  40. Good morning! What a nice surprise to find this on your blog! I have changed a few things already since you last took pictures, but not alot. I opened up the cabinet area where my glass cabinet doors are by moving the glass doors to the right and leaving the doors off the section with the brown paint. Jimmy plans on trimming out that cabinet area to make it look like it's supposed to not have cabinet doors. I put all my dishes (except bright colored ones) in those cabinets to look more like a hutch. It works out easier to get dishes and putting them away now and allows more dishes to be displayed. Thanks for all the nice comments on my kitchen. Your kitchen was a big inspiration for me since you had the "rooster" theme first and all these colors. Thanks for sharing it on your blog.

  41. Okay, now I'm POSITIVE that the decorating talent is genetic!!! You BOTH have a wonderful way of combining items for maximum effect!

    I ♥ the table set at an angle like that. Mine is 60" x 60" square so I can't duplicate it, though. :( I only copy from the best, ya' know. LOL

    Please tell Kelly "thank you" for letting us peek into her lovely home. It was just like going on a home tour...without the sore feet from walking!

  43. How pretty is that kitchen! Thanks for giving us a peek...you two could shop each other's kitchens for pretties when you get tired of your own! I love all the details and the warm coziness of it all!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Beautiful Kim! It's lovely - down to the last detail! My favorite? The bull! LOL! What whimsy!? Gorgeous kitchen. I found you through Marty's Tabletop Tuesday! I've got a dining room update up - I hope you can stop by! :)

    See you soon!

  56. Hey Kim, without reading the other comments, I have to ask ... is your sister's space on Rate My Space? If so, her kitchen is one of my faves (I seem to remember her breakfast area being showcased on Rate My Space) ... had no idea that is your sister !! Small world and fabulous decorating obviously runs in your family! Hugs, Becca

    ReplyDelete
  57. Becca, yes she put it on rms long time ago and it was a lighter green and different drapes. She had made a lot of changes. She is like me she can't stop. She has already made some more changes.

    ReplyDelete

    I'm late getting around to some visits so I'm catching up on some previous posts. Loved this visit to your sister's home. I could move right in! She is very talented. I think she likes rooster as much as I do. Please tell her thanks for letting you share the photos. I think you two sisters are very talented! ~ Sarah
