French Canvas in the Kitchen

8.11.2014

Last week I showed y'all the breakfast room in its new color, French Canvas. Today I am sharing the rest of the kitchen with the new lighter color. I wasn't sure there was going to be any sun this weekend to take these. The sun did finally show up and I grabbed my camera and snapped away, but I still had to turn on the overhead lights for some of them. This time of year I don't get a lot of light in the center of the house because of the angle of the sun and all the trees out back.

The copper molds are no longer on the arched wall. I showed them to y'all in the breakfast room post hanging above the window.



Now the eye can look through the arches to the great room without stopping to look at the copper molds that once hung there.





I hung two of my molds on this vintage breadboard.

Another large one hangs on the stove hood now instead of the cow head.

I still have my vintage scale collection on top of the cabinets. Boy, those things were dusty when I had to take them down. Everything is nice and clean now for a bit.

I love Dash & Albert rugs and I ordered this runner from dashandablert.com. When I saw this new line by Bunny Williams I had to have one. I had been wanting a runner here and this one is perfect. Love the red plaid and jute together.

I'm still thrilled with my salvage piece pot rack.

See how the checked cafe curtains were made here by Mr. Savvy.



French soap sits in an old ironstone food mold by the sink since I ran out of the liquid soap I like.




This neutral color is much better than the old color Frappe that had more yellow in it.
Now I really want the whole house painted in this, but that won't be happening any time soon.

I sure hope y'all have a fabulous week!

  17. Me too, there are areas in my home a little hard to photograph because of little natural light during parts of the day, but I do love having lots of trees. Love the color Kim and I noticed my scale is like the one you have on your counter...love it! I can't wait to finally have a kitchen to display it in. Hope you have a great week...
    Blessings,

  21. Kim, the color is wonderful. Aptly named because it's the perfect canvas for all that you've got going on in the room. I just love you cabinets, as well, particularly with the rope trim visible on the range hood. Love your granite selection too. I realize you're focusing on the paint here, but the whole thing is new to me so I'm enjoying all the bits... :-)

  27. Okay, Kim, I know you visited la belle France a while ago, but how on earth did you stuff all her beautiful style into your suitcase?! Your fabulous, farmhouse French kitchen is gorgeous, warm, friendly and fun! Thanks for the update!

  35. Just beautiful! Every time I see your kitchen I want to get a pot rack. I had one in the old house for years then took it down to open up the room some. But I miss it......maybe I will try to find one. Love the new color. We are going to paint this winter and I am thinking about colors now. Decisions, decisions:):)

  43. Jusr went to my local Benjamin Moore store and got a paint chip. Looking at your pictures again to see how French Canvas looks with white. I'm considering painting above the chair rail French Canvas and below the same white as the chair rail. Any suggestions, thoughts, etc?

  44. It's gorgeous Kim!! You have such a lovely home, and I totally get the paint thing. I never did get all of the yellow paint covered at my house, I just moved. Now there's a way to take care of that problem. But you have a beautiful home and don't need to move.
