Hello everyone! If you have been following along for a while then you know that things are all about kitchens ’round these parts these days. We are still knee deep in our own kitchen renovation (it got put on hold by our “rental project”) but that has just wrapped up and I have several big projects to share with you soon!
In the meantime, Spring Break has arrived, and we are taking some time together as a family (I will be sharing what we are up to on Instagram over the next couple of weeks). While I am gone I have lined up some fabulous kitchen tours from a few of my favourite bloggers who have great success in building or renovating their own dream kitchens. I just know you are going to find amazing inspiration in this series.
Today I want to welcome over my friend Jamie from So Much Better With Age. I had the chance to travel down to the Haven conference with Jamie and Tara and it was an absolute blast! We chatted so much the whole way down that I think we kept everyone around us quite entertained. Jamie has a beautiful, vintage industrial French style to her kitchen and her home that you are going to love! And her ‘not so rustic’ cabin in the woods is amazing as well!
I’m so excited to be here today! I’m Jamie and I blog at So Much Better With Age.
I’m honored to be sharing my kitchen tour with Happy Housie readers. I know my kitchen (and most of my home) is white and neutral and Krista’s style is so bright and beautiful but I’m hoping to sway a few of you over to the ‘light’ side, haha. Kidding. Not really 😉
Welcome to my white Industrial Vintage French kitchen.
When we first moved in to our house nearly six years ago, it was very 80s. We did some minor updates but I was longing for my dream kitchen.
I have always wanted a large island but the floor plan didn’t accommodate one so I made the peninsula look like one.
The kitchen was renovated without changing the floor plan which saves on costs.
I wanted more cupboard space so we made room for a sleek Sub-Zero fridge and floor to ceiling cupboards around the built-in microwave.
I love glass front doors in a kitchen. There was a bit of room to add some shelving on the side by the window as well.
I love subway tile. I know it’s been overdone like crazy lately but I’ve loved it for years so I’m good with it for a very long time.
The farmhouse porcelain sink and bridge faucet might be my all time fave part of this kitchen.
At first we didn’t tile all of these walls but in the end I decided to just do it! I couldn’t be happier with the results.
This butcher block I gave a makeover to was a great Craigslist find.
The custom touches were what I worked on with my cabinet maker. I designed every little feature.
The eating area has just enough room for a French table and chairs.
The overall look is so white and fresh.
The kitchen office was updated too with new upper cabinets to the ceiling and matching white quartz countertop.
We also added a Miele coffee maker to the closet turned mini butler pantry.
Be sure to check out my kitchen source guide for all the details!
Thank you, Krista, for having me guest post today!
Thanks so much for being here, Jamie, and sharing your stunning kitchen with us!
