~I've died & gone to kitchen heaven~

Howdy folks!
When I stumbled upon this kitchen reno here,
my jaw hit the floor. Can you believe this kitchen
used to be this kitchen?

Check out the beaded board ceiling and the subway tile back splash!


I heart that lighting and the attention to detail.


Even her store bought pasta looks good sitting on the counter!

Here is the adjoining breakfast area.

I suppose it does help that the owner of this home was the

assistant decorating editor at cottage living magazine.

Also, I want to share with you a great giveaway.
Head over here to see it!

I read this article when it was first published and it was the inspiration for my kitchen {which is almost finished} I so wanted the wood counter top on the opposite wall from the sink but we weren't sure how it would stand up to abuse! But I do have the open shelving in white and the subway tile.

Thanks for sharing!

I love subway tile! That is a great kitchen. I'm going to read the article. We've been remodeling our kitchen for several months and it is almost done! I love to cook and bake...can't wait to get back into the swing of it.

And...that house is for sale right now!! So, if you're up for moving to Birmingham...

Laura @ Ms Smartie Pants said...

The old kitchen is way to similar to my kitchen now. I have plans to paint the cabinets this fall. I loved that the lowers are a different color and love the shape of the subway tile, but I think I want a little more color there. I also love penny round tile, do you look at Sara's house on HGTV, she does amazing rooms!

Thanks for the inspiring kitchens I am gathering ideas for our major re-do next spring!

I love seeing other kitchens with white on top and gray on bottom. We did that to ours this year and added floors, but haven't finished the backspash and counter tops yet. What we did do made a world of difference. I love these photos, so much inspiration!

I love great photographs and that kitchen is awesome! Thanks for sharing, have to say, I so love that copper bread box!

The part of this kitchen redo that I liked the best was that they moved the upper cabinets up to the ceiling and added an open shelf underneath. What a great idea! I'm saving that idea for our next house purchase just in case the cabinets don't go all the way to the ceiling. Cindy

I'm drooling! I opened the link to the original story and can't wait to go read it. Positively eye candy! Thanks for sharing.

Katie @ On the Banks of Squaw Creek said...

I've seen it before, and I agree that it's gorgeous. But how in the world would you reach your upper cabinets?

Fragrant Liar said...

Oh, love love love the beadboard ceiling. But of course I love beadboard anything!

Gorgeous kitchens.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

What a great transformation! Love the wood ceiling. Hugs, Sherry

AntiqueChase said...

She really did a great job on that kitchen transformation. I love love the dining area as well. Very pretty house!

Linda Q said...

That is a good one! I especially like the beadboard ceiling too, as that is what I am wanting to do to our kitchen ceiling soon. May do it faux with beadboard wallpaper.

I agree, I adore this kitchen! I actually have that issue of Cottage Living and have saved it for inspiration for the past two years....and I don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. Love your blog, it's fabulous!

Modern Country Style said...

That's so cool! I featured that kitchen/diner as one of my inspiration photos for our kitchen room and dining room a while ago on my blog, Modern Country Style. I found the picture online but had no idea where it came from. And now I do!!

Thank you!

Modern Country Style said...

Sorry to bombard you with comments!When I clicked throuhg to Urban Grace, she didn't know what colour the dining room walls were. You might like to know that they are Farrow and Ball's Pigeon. I remeber reading it when I first saw the photo ages ago.
Sometimes you get a colour distortion oncomputers but I'd say that's how the colour looks in 'real life' too!

I've got a thing about wanting to know different paint colours in pictures I see and thought you might too!
