My Favorite Room.....Town and Country Living

Kim, thanks so much for featuring my favorite room on your beautiful blog. It's an honor to be here and I don't want to disappoint your readers. While it was hard to choose a favorite room, I finally decided upon the kitchen. I love to cook and consider myself to be a bit of a foodie. I try to use local, organic foods as much as possible ... and I prefer meals made from scratch. Of course, cooking from scratch takes longer to prepare than pre-packaged foods, which means more time spent in the kitchen. So good thing I like my kitchen, right?  My house was built circa 1875 so my kitchen is definitely farmhouse style. I love the old built-in cupboard on the left. Kitchen www.town-n-country-living.com
It holds a lot of stuff, which is good because we have no upper cabinets in the kitchen.

This free standing  cupboard is from IKEA and fits perfectly under the open shelving. We have plans to add more shelving on other walls in the kitchen. I hope to complete that project soon!

The big white mugs were a Christmas gift from my daughter and yes, they're perfect for a big cup o' Joe!

On to the other side of the kitchen ... the working side where the kitchen island provides more counter space. As you can see, a trio of windows prevents us from having upper cabinets over here. But I love the windows!

The back door leads to our fenced in backyard. I love to keep this door open in the summer so the breezes can blow in through the screen.  We added the bead board on the kitchen walls a few years after moving in. They're painted with high gloss kitchen cabinet paint so they're super easy to clean even though it's white. The kitchen cabinets are painted Tortilla by Martha Stewart.

The little cabinet on the floor used to hang on the wall. But it's location was a head bumper so we pulled it off and set it on the floor instead.  It's quite an old cabinet but I don't know if it's original to the house.

Back over to our little dining nook where you can see the Mexican tiled floor.  A couple of mirrors on the walls helps to bounce the light around. The small table has a leaf and can seat up to 6 people. For bigger groups, we eat in the dining room.

Would you like to join me for a little vino and some appetizers?

Now that the kitchen is clean I can mess it up while making French macarons.  I do love my kitchen despite all its quirkiness.

  25. Jennifer, you kitchen is just my style. It is so unique and inviting and full of great pieces... and it's white, my favorite! Our first home was 120 years old and had great cabinets, very much like yours. There is a whole lot of space to put things!Painting your bottom cupboards tortilla gave the whole area depth and warmth. What a great choice. And your windows... Oh, I bet your kitchen stays nice and bright!!!! I would trade cabinet space for bigger windows!
    I bet your friends love to come through your back door!

    Kim, thanks for hosting this wonderful series... and picking Jennifer. She has such a darling kitchen!!! I can't wait to get to my computer on fridays to see what favorite room you will feature next.

  30. I adore Jennifer's kitchen! She is a master at combining old and new and making it all fit in her farmhouse with style! I love how light-filled it is!

  31. What Jennifer calls quirks I call originality, personality, and character! They don't make 'em like that anymore and people pay a lot of money to recreate what she has. I can see why she loves it.

  32. I don't see quirky, I see charming. It's unique and it's not a cookie cutter kitchen. It certainly has a lot of character. I'd take it any day over a big box store kitchen!!
