I started out a little too farmhouse but eventually found my way back to French Country. I've been adding a little romance to our kitchen lately with blue and white and some other accessories.
It's been in our master bedroom but it was on the wall where our barn door opens so I've moved it to the kitchen. An ivy planted in a little blue and white watering can and a small urn complete the vignette.
My husband told my daughter, "When I left the house this morning some things were brown and some things were blue. When I came home, the things that were brown are now blue and vice versa." Poor man!
You can see from these pictures why I would want our kitchen to be a little more formal than most kitchens. We can see it from every room.
I keep thinking that I'd like to have different hardware on this blue section just to dress it up a bit and also make it feel like a separate cabinet. Maybe I'll see if I can find some the next time I go to Grand Rapids HobbyLobby.
I had done an antiquing glaze to our cabinets a while back. It added some nice depth from far away but up close, it just looked dirty to me. So I also gave our doors a fresh coat of SW Sand.
