Nancy's Home Tour Part 2 - The Kitchen

I have to say thank you to all of you for your sweet comments on 

It thrills both of us that you love her home. :)

Let's move on to her stunning kitchen!


Don't you just love her chalkboard?

You have to be happy reading a message like that.


I would describe this kitchen as welcoming, colorful, beautiful, and homey.

Wouldn't you?

Edit to add a note from Nancy:
"I just love reading all these sweet comments! Y'all just make my day! I have noticed a few comments on the tiered curtains...here's my trick...it's 3 separate valances, hung on 3 different tension rods. I love the look of it...It reminds me of something custom, but without the cost. It also gives me the privacy I want and it blocks the sun light on the hot summer days."


Nancy said this tiered stand is from a garage sale.

She loves to have brunch gatherings on the weekends and she uses it to serve syrups and goodies like that.

Her counters and vignettes are so pretty.


The little cabinet tucked in the corner is a spice cabinet made by her Daddy 25 years ago.

I remember her telling us about that a couple of years ago. It means the world to her.


Look at all the adorable lamps.



The picture below gives us a view into the family room.

Just beautiful!!


I asked Nancy a few questions about her house. 
Did they build it and is there anything we should all know?  I love her answer, 

"We did not build this house... Let me say this house was a blessing and God sent in so many ways. This house of course had a builder but I like to think it was God inspired. It has everything I WISH I had used in the house we did build. It is the perfect size for us, not too big neither too small. We lived for 23 years on a very busy state road, we could never enjoy our front yard or porch... But here at our new house it's so quiet, calm, relaxing. We live in a small neighborhood and a very small town.  Our house is  surrounded by a small small small national forest.... We have every kind of wildlife you can imagine. We are 2 mins from the lake and several bike and walking trails. We literally feel like we are living in a resort town...beautiful, clean and very low crime. I said all that to say .... I Love it and I'm so grateful !!!"

I'm grateful to you for sharing with us, my friend. :)

The dining room is coming up next with a few out-takes too.

What a lovely visit to your friend's home. Her kitchen is very welcoming, I do love red! The rich tones are gorgeous - I love that stand - beautiful. I can heartily understand her sentiments - I too feel God gave us our home, blessed us with the ability to live in the country, though we live 'in town'. Beautiful post, I am Delighted you shared with A Return to Loveliness,
Kathy

What a beautiful home! Nancy, that clever trick with the valances is just so...Clever! I would never have thought to do that and I love it! I will definitely be keeping that idea in mind.
Stacey, thanks so much for sharing Nancy's beautiful home with us!

Hi Stacey,

It's all so utterly enchanting! Again, the detail on Nancy's curtains, the red clock, the teacups and elegant chalkboard...TOO perfect!
Warm colours of the sweet, French countryside, how can it not be!:)

Thanks so much for the reminder to take a peek Stacey. I am so glad you did. Her home is gorgeous and I love her kitchen as well. I love how she has her white collections displayed. They really stand out nicely against her wood and the red. Her curtains are genius, I really love that idea! I had to go back and check out her fireplace again though. It caught my eye because it is so beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing!

Julie {Lilacs and Longhorns} said...

So pretty!! I love the little vignette with the white bunny and the plate - just lovely. The plates on the wall are also gorgeous. And, isn't she smart with her window treatment?! I'm so happy she shared her home with us -- I always love taking a peak inside someone's beautiful home for inspiration!
Thanks, Stacey and Nancy!

Love this kitchen -- the colors are so pretty with the dark cabinets too! So many great ideas and so much inspiration. Love the name of your blog too :)

Just a little something from Judy said...

I do believe I would find dishes that need to be washed, because of how much fun it would be to wash dishes at that beautifully located sink:) The colors, the décor, and the ambience found here, is perfect!
