Still lovin’…

…french cafe bistro chairs…

Love how they look in breakfast nooks, at bar height kitchen counters, and outdoor patios.  On my list of things to integrate into the decor of my home for sure!

See my previous post on french bistro chairs here.

Two Great Kitchens

Both with cabinets all the way up to the (high!) ceiling and painted in such a happy color :)

Hanging Pot Rack in a Small Kitchen

Last week I did a post on hanging pot racks, which featured mostly large kitchens.  This kitchen below shows how a hanging pot rack can be integrated into smaller quarters:

It works here because there’s free wall space, as in the pots aren’t blocking any cabinet doors.  They do look quite high up there though, so I’m guessing the homeowner keeps a step stool handy :)

Hanging Pot Racks

Hanging racks are a great option for storing and displaying beautiful cookware. Hung right above a center island, they make pots and pans easily accessible and create a visual centerpiece. Additionally, pot racks free up cabinet space so there’s more room to store dinnerware, food items, etc.

Happy Friday

The weather has returned to feeling a bit more “fall-like” over here, and so this weekend you’re likely to find me wearing soft knits…

and warming up with homemade soup… Hope you have a wonderful weekend! See you again soon!

Hello

Loving how white paired with a bit of soft turqoise helps make these spaces look so fresh.

Hope you have a great start to your week!

Jacqui Getty’s Hollywood Home

Just had a chance to flip through my copy of the latest issue of C Magazine and was delighted to see featured this beautiful Hollywood Hills home. Especially loving the gorgeous outdoor living area and the living room with big windows and views of the green garden. I think they shall be the newest additions to my dream home inspiration file.

Cooking Utensils Within Easy Reach

A kitchen rail positioned above or near the stove is a great way to keep frequently used cooking utensils easily accessible and in a neat row.
