French Country House on the Hill- Kitchen/ Living area

These clients came to me about 2 1/2 years ago to help them design this fabulous home. It has been a wonderful project and has really pushed me as a designer to be out of the box and use my creativity.
They were great to work with, they had been collecting magazine pictures for years of what they wanted. Their goal was a French Country home with simple with easy to use spaces and furnishings.
The kitchen / living space was probably the most important space to them.
Colors were pulled from the art work over the stove. The views are amazing out the windows.
Counter tops are Danby Marble which I happen to think is the prettiest marble and soapstone.

My talented husband crafted the floor out of wide plank white oak and a ceramic like limestone. He also built the mantels, and shelving in the kitchen out of reclaimed chestnut. The amazing pantry shelving which is not settled in yet are also built by him.


This ottoman from Lorts is so cool it has a tray that pulls out of it to set your beverage on.



Love, Love, Love this chandelier has wonderful sconces that match.



Check out my posts from earlier showing the design process for this back splash it actually changed even more when we realized what was on paper was not going to work.
La Cornue Stove how cool is that color.

Great Herbeau facuet

soapstone

Bar with kegorator and wine storage





The strange doors to the right are very cool they go in to the kitchen but on the kitchen side they look like cabinets. We still need to pretty up the shelving they just moved in.
