31 Days|Day 29 The Kitchen, her highness

by Edie Wadsworth on October 30, 2011

This is the 3rd kitchen I’ve done in 3 years.    Right after I finished the first kitchen remodel, we moved to the lake.  I loved her–-the turquoise kitchen. She’ll always be special to me.

Then there was the lake kitchen remodel. And much to your chagrin surprise, I did a white layered palette.   I really liked that kitchen too but again, we only enjoyed her for a few months before our house burned to the ground.

Laurel Cove Kitchen is her own woman.   She may seem a little high-falutin’, what with her crystal chandelier and her marble countertops.   But once you get to know her, you’ll realize that despite her proper exterior, she’s a workhorse willing to serve.

This weekend, she entertained the family with style.  She served roasted turkey and butternut squash soup, the best ever beef stew, smoked turkey and potatoes, and chipotle pumpkin barley soup.  On the sweets side, there were gingersnaps, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins,  apple cake with caramel icing and strawberry pretzel salad.  It was like a fall festival in your mouth :)

It was so much fun seeing how the kitchen functions in action—-she’s perfect.   Roomy but cozy, pretty but functional.  Mary AND Martha.


I’ll let you enjoy the pics and I’ll try to post sources tomorrow.

(a Le Creuset pot  is always on the stove and usually full  of yummies)

(I stole the idea of the fall leaves in the white transferware from Country Living)


(loving the open island—so easy to get the dishes out and put away)


This is the baking center and all the baking supplies and measuring utensils and stored in those drawers.

There’s a full post on the baking center, including how I organize my supplies and what I keep on hand!





(where all the magic happens)

This will likely be the first and last time you see this kitchen in this state.   A table has been ordered and fabrics are being chosen to grace the windows and the chairs.

But I love her now too!  And am so thankful everytime I am lucky enough to cook and bake and live here :)

AMAZING!!!   Every detail is perfect, until the grandbabies come along, and then you will quickly add doors to that island!  My wild-woman 18 month old would be in paradise pulling those dishes off the shelves!   Until then, ENJOY!   You and your family deserve all this beauty!   When your girls are grown you should consider being a decorator if you don’t return to the medical field!

Just beautiful.  I would love to know your paint colors.  I really want to lighten up my rooms and I’m not sure what I want to do. I’ve lived with dark colors (Red) for years.  I have enjoyed touring your home and I hope that you and your family have many happy years there.

Pure eye candy! Just beautiful and made more beautiful by the family time spent there already.  The orange Le Creuset pot brings back memories.  I grew up watching my mom cook in the same pot and color choice.  I love, love, love the cabinets, the countertops, the wood floors, the bright windows, the open shelving, the new appliances….I could go on all night.  I can’t wait to see the sources and again I am so happy for you.  Please also share the guest space sources.  I love me some chenille bedspread and some mercury lamps!!!

She is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! Every inch spectacular. I love how this kitchen, and every space in your home personifies you. Stylish, eclectic, chic and with a splash of breathtaking. I must make a confession-I am a wee bit jealous!! Our kitchen is small-I think yours is the size of our dining area and living room combined. Alas, I am thrilled for you. You deserve it!!

All the yummy food you listed here is making me hungry. I love your beef stew recipe and make it all the time. So very yummy!!
Hope you had a blessed time with your houseguests.

Hugs,
Ruth

It looks like you have casters on the piece next to the stove.  Is that it’s permanent home then you move it about when you need to pass through the area by your baking center (which, btw, is my favorite part and I pinned it on my wall — LOVE it)?  Or do you tuck it away someplace out when it’s not out and being used?  Just absolutely love your spaces and thank you so very, very much for all the time you’ve taken to take and edit and post the pictures so we can rejoice with you in your new home.  Wow.  What a difference a year makes, huh?

28 edie wadsworth October 31, 2011 at 12:20 pm

polished.  but they were supposed to be honed.  i’ve read equal amounts of pros or cons for both so i’m not sure it matters that much.  you would only used marble if you’re okay with the patina it gets over time. :)

29 Southern Gal October 31, 2011 at 10:35 am

She looks mah-velous!

Where do you keep the small cart that’s next to the stove when you’re not using it?  I want one of those, but thought I didn’t have enough room.  It looks great where you have it.  Maybe I should go ahead and get one and park it someplace unexpected?

I love your house so much – just beautiful!!

Can you tell me what the measurements of your kitchen ended up being and how wide is your island? I have a kitchen of similar size and am wondering if a layout like this might work. From looking at the floor plan link you provided, it appears that you widened your kitchen.

Thanks,
Rachel

All 3 of your kitchens are beautiful!  You did a great job.  May I ask why you picked marble over the previous counter (silestone?  corian?)  I just put in marble  counters last December and was told the sealer used would make them stain proof.  I did not realize that they would still etch.  I love the look, but think if I had to do it all over again, I might consider the silestone or corian.  Did you like yours?  Thanks!  Beth

Edie,
I love the kitchen!  I have Hazy Skies and Sea Salt in my new kitchen too.  My island is sea salt, and it looks completely different in your kitchen!  Mine looks more aquaish…  I have carrara countertops, but with a honed finish.  I really like them so far, and don’t see what all the big fuss is over having them in kitchens.  Although, I haven’t had any bad messes yet either.  Everything is just beautiful.  We’ve been in our new house a month now, and I still don’t have a single thing hung on the walls and I have tons of boxes left to unpack.  Between homeschooling my 1st grader and minding a toddler and an infant, I’m spread pretty thin!  Want to come to Texas and decorate;) ?  

Congratulations on your new home!  Hoping you have many happy memories there.

Edie, love love your blog. Inspired by your journey of faith, parenthood and life. God is so good! I adore everything about your kitchen and am getting ready to refresh mine in similar colors. In love with the marble counters but scared to pull the trigger. Not at all afraid of imperfections, but really as a serious cook to another how is it wearing? And I have 3 little girls will they just destroy this eating at counter? Hoping you’ll tell me to go for it but know you’ll tell me the truth. Did you use polished or honed finish?

Edie,

Love the new kitchen! We’re kind of looking at redoing some things with our house, which is great but has a small kitchen. Love the wainscoting on the ceiling. Looks beautiful. Hope all is well. Keep on posting!

This is a stunning space!!! Is this also the dining area or do you also have a formal dining room? I’ve thinking of merging my kitchen and dining area (while still maintaining some formality to the combined dining area)….you did it exactly how I envision ours in my dreams!
what are the dimensions of your space if you don’t mind sharing?

I am in love with your kitchen! What a beautiful space, sigh…:) we are remodeling or 1915 bungalow, and have a ceiling like yours. I’m wondering what sheen of paint you used on your kitchen? They look shiney! I’ve always heard that one should use flat paint on the ceiling. Also, should you pretty please tell me the source of your cabinets, they are exactly what I want! Thanks for having such Ann amazing blog !!
Warm wishes from Utah:)

I LOVE your blog and your style. Your home and family are beautiful! I am a homeschool mom of 6 from Connecticut. I want to give my 80′s kitchen a facelift but am very decorative challenged, so I thought it would be helpful to follow a model to help. My question is… The counters were updated before we bought 4 years ago. I have granite that I would call “warm” with tans, caramel, black in it. Does you palette (fieldstone) work with that? How “careful” do I have to be to work with the granite color? Thank you for your help!!! and BTW I LOVED your Why we “almost” quit homeschooling post. I LOVE my days with my kids.

Thank You.

Edie, I met you for a millisecond at Blissdom almost 3 years ago. I had read about your kitchen’s demise in the house fire and my heart ached for you and your family. I always loved your turquoise kitchen and have kept the images tucked in the back of my mind (and on a Pinterest board. LOL.) This past October we had a water leak, mold, asbestos abatement and now termite damage in our kitchen. I keep thinking that this must be a big test of my faith and strength before our dream kitchen is here. One thing that keeps me going is remembering that “It could always be worse.” Thanks for your inspiration and your ability to hold your head high to rebuild your beautiful new dream kitchen. I love all the details you chose. Best of luck and well wishes to you and your family. (P.s. that little block of fudge you gave me at Blissdom….Mmmmm!

Hello. Could you please tell me the manufacturer of these cabinets? Do you know if they come in different colour finishes or do you have to custom paint. Any help you may offer is appreciated. Kindest regards, Janice

I love your ceiling in the kitchen. Do you mind me asking, is it wainscoting panels or individual slats of wood installed to look like bead board? I want to put this ceiling in our kitchen and I have looked at panels of wainscoting and looked at the individual slats. I’m trying to go the route of quick and easy to install.

Thanks for sharing your life, I enjoy it all!

Adam Walsh also made a few digs about Cher now, branding the girl “moody and miserable”,
that is certainly rather unprofessional via one of the X Factor judges.

The latest “X Factor” injury, Aiden Grimshaw was fast to defend Lloyd however, saying, “Cher is usually lovely. I think it absolutely was always those hard regarding who got such awful stick at such a early age to go around beaming but she’s amazing and she actually is done really well. micron

Cher Lloyd is on rather shaky ground with her popularity and if Katie Waissel is selected out of the competition soon, she may likely become the new “villain” of the show.
Louis Walsh was totally right when he mentioned, ” She has to learn to be good to everybody – because you will meet them on how down. inch
