Remember that company coming that I mentioned in a previous post... well,
I have been a bit crazy here over the past few days.
In addition to EVERYTHING I think (key word right here!) has to
get done,
get re-done,
get re-decorated or
get rid of...

I am doing a couple of little updates on the kitchen.
I don't have much time to get it all finished or cleaned up at least~
The party is in just over a week!!
Boy does it seem like those projects add up when you have to finish by a certain time!

Anyway, I have a few little tweaks on the kitchen in the works and am sharing some inspiration photos of a kitchen I LOVE!
What a dream!

(pics from Country French magazine)

Ohhh this kitchen!!
White cupboard love!!
With TONS of details!
White marble!!
(trying to convince hubby we need to replace our countertops and make them marble!)
Red and blue accents and stainless steel
I LOVE this kitchen!

I know you guys hate it when people post little teasers- but
I am not ready to photograph everything just yet!!
(meaning my kitchen is a mess!)

I have the before's already loaded up onto the computer...
Stay tuned!


  1. Hi Courtney~ I cant wait to see your kitchen reveal!!! LOVING the little peek of red I saw~ Blessings,Rachel

  2. I thought your kitchen was gorgeous before so I CAN'T imagine how you are going to improve upon it but I'm looking forward to seeing it! I had white cabinets in my old kitchen and loved how bright and cheerful they were. What I really covet are the creamy/antique white cabinets with a little distressing and maybe a black stained island! One can dream... :-)

  3. I can't WAIT to see your kitchen! And this white inspiration kitchen is just gorgeous! Which Country French mag is this from? Maybe a new one I don't have? I save ALL of mine, LOL!

  4. I'll patiently keep checking on my updates to see what's in store. C'mon hubby, the girl deserves white marble!

  5. I am excited to see your mini makeover. My dream kitchen involves painting my maple cabs white and a marble countertop and removing one wall!! someday....

  6. You are teasing us!! Good luck getting it done. I usually get more accomplished when I have a deadline than any other time!

    Can't wait to see the reveal!

  7. I've been reading all our posts for the last 2 days and I LOVE it oh AND I'm your 100th follower!! Sweet!!
    Yesterdays post about your son really hit home. My oldest is newly 18 and she is leaving home soon for College. I love that there is hope that she will want to be around us - more..
    Your post actually made me tear up. Im such a sap. lol
    Cant wait to see the kitchen, anything that involves wine is a great design idea! lol

  8. I so look forward to the reveal. Hugs, Marty

  9. Hiya Courtney,
    I can't imagine what you might be doing to your kitchen as it's already quite pretty, cozy and charming. We have such similar tastes including color choices. I've been fazing red out for a while but when I see it used well, like in your kitchen, I fall in love all over again. It's bittersweet for me.

    Are you topiary art pieces painted or molded art? I have two pieces that look almost identical to yours. Just curious!

    Now, lets chat about this white marble you love..... It would be gorgeous BUT wouldn't you be frightened of staining it when you are chopping....say red onions or blueberries? You'll definitely have to keep us posted. I love marble too. So pretty and I'd never convince my hubby to go for it. I wish you all the luck in the world on that.:)

    Blessings to you and yours,

  10. So exciting! Can't wait to see! Love your color choices :)

  14. I too love a white kitchen! I can't wait to see your reveal! I'm over from Donna's blog, Conghaile Cottage.


  15. Hi,

    I was on another blog and saw the words..."white marble" re: kitchen counters and I had to comment on it. I just remodeled my kitchen and put in carara marble counters (even though everyone told me not to LOL) I absolutely love them. I did use a good quality sealer. You should also know that you can't set extremely hot items on marble. My cabinets are dark and they are a nice compliment to the marble; There is just nothing richer or more elegant!
    Stop by and see me sometime. (-:
