Kitchen Remodel

Kitchen Remodel
After months of searching (years really), we finally decided that while there are bigger houses in our neighborhood, there are none to be found that we love nearly as much as our little Tudor.
We’ve put off investing any real time, effort and money into updates on our house that weren’t absolutely necessary because we thought we’d have moved into more space by now.
However, I’m happy to report that we have officially dug in and started renovating our kitchen to make it better accommodate our growing boys. We’ve finished most of it (more on that later) but here were the plans for our new space.

It was important to us to maintain some of the traditional character that runs through the rest of our house while incorporating some more modern elements for aesthetics and convenience.

I absolutely love what has transpired thus far!

Daily Covet: Safavieh Logan X Side Chair

The Safavieh Logan X Side Chair is a modern-day replica of the most popular cafe chairs of Europe. Small-ish in size, these dining chairs were popularized by Thonet’s 19th Century Brentwood aesthetic. My favorite part of these chairs is where the curved metal “X” meets the seat of the chair.


I currently have a farmhouse-style kitchen table set on casters that is slightly longer and slightly narrower than most dining tables. I would love to update the upholstered bench and two farmhouse chairs that surround my beloved table. The distressing makes them rustic, and the basket-weaved seats that are slightly more cush than a solid wood seat.

So while I’m replacing furniture, why not a makeover? I’m also loving these Philippe Starck sconces!
