French Cottage Kitchen Refresh- Reveal

 I mentioned before that I wasn't sure why I fell in love with this house
when I first saw it. I think that any time you tackle a renovation or change
in an older house- you will question it again. 

Sometimes I wonder why it is that I see the potential for what something could be
instead of the 'are you kidding me?' 
But you know... I see the original. 
The vintage charm. 
The old handmade construction and detailing.

The huge amount of work, sore muscles
head shaking, smashed fingers and hair pulling that will be involved? 
Not so much.
Well, until after tackling the project of course.

{Details} A toile tale

Sometimes it is the simplest of things that first catches your eye
and that makes you take a longer look.

When something first catches my eye - it is usually because of one detail
rather than the whole picture.

Mirror Mirror

I was browsing a bit the other day for a little something - something
to add a dash of warm sunshine to a room.

January seems to usher in a semi- starkness.
Less clutter. More quiet space.
A crisp, clean and simple background. 
And yes along with that sometimes, the blahs.

How to Style Shelves

Bookshelves, cupboards
an open armoire or hutch with dishes.

No matter where you display your treasures-
when they are displayed in a beautiful way
they add charm and beauty to a room.
