Last week I finished painting the kitchen. Actually, I finished repainting the kitchen. Ivan and I made our first bad colour choice with the original colour we chose for the kitchen. We really wanted yellow but the colour we picked ended up looking neon! We picked a new colour, started over and now I love the colour! It is a really pretty golden colour that matches the yellow in the wall tiles.
I thought it would be fun to share a few peeks from our kitchen so far. It is not completely perfect by any means but I like showing in progress shots.
Today I am off to look at getting a pretty little Christmas tree. I can't wait to show you guys once it is all up and decorated! Usually I am a bit lazy about decorating for holidays but I am so excited to do it this year. Having a house is fun!
Your Pyrex display is amazing. My fiance's Christmas list is made up for several different vintage Pyrex goodies. The "Forest Fancies" is one of them! :)ReplyDelete
That calender is simple adorable, by the way. Have a good day!
I love your kitchen! The yellow is so quaint and pretty, and that cabinet is AMAZING! I pretty much love any kind of display that's recessed into the wall :) I need to find a calendar like that!ReplyDelete
Great choice in wall color! I love your pyrex as well..so awesome that you have a cabinet like that!ReplyDelete
What do you put in between the bowls when stacking them..I like that you can see each of them!
Your kitchen is looking gorgeous. I LOVE the pyrex and the calendar, not to mention how cute and colorful those pots are. I look forward to see how it looks when you finish it. Have an awesome week.ReplyDelete
The kitchen looks so good! I love the calendar! :)ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see the decorations!
Looks great! Adore those cute pans<3ReplyDelete
Oh...get a white christmas tree. I got this adorable white christmas tree from a store in Toronto.ReplyDelete
Elycia, it's sooooo pretty! That colour is perfect, I don't think I would choose it from a paint chip but it's so nice on the walls. Good work, lady! I don't think I can comment on the Pyrex display without being overcome by jealousy ;)ReplyDelete

How lovely! I totally fell in love with your wood calendar!ReplyDelete
I love your kitchen! My favorite part is definitely your owl knick knacks!ReplyDelete
That built-in is great! I have a couple pieces of that olive green pyrex. I've been on the hunt for the pink and light blue pieces (they're my fav!). And what a unique calendar -- I've never seen anything like that!ReplyDelete

Looks great! I love the golden color! Can't wait to see more. :)ReplyDelete
So colorful! My mom has those mushroom bowls :)ReplyDelete
Your kitchen looks amazing!!! I really want to be able to decorate a whole house by myself, but for now I guess I'll just have to stick to the dollhouse in my closet ;) I love the yellow color! It's so warm and lovely =) I actually saw one of those mushroom pyrex in a second hand store the other day, and thought of you!ReplyDelete
So pretty! It's turning out amazing!ReplyDelete
silly questions- what did you put in the pyrex dishes to make them stand up like that? where on earth did you find that fondue set? share your secrets please!ReplyDelete
your lovely pyrex and hutch is amazing, I am so jealous! :)ReplyDelete
AH! I have that same type of owl napkin holder....but he's blue and green!! LOVE!! I posted about it here:ReplyDelete
I can't believe you have an orange and yellow one. so pretty!
I love love love your pyrex collection :)ReplyDelete
I am going to put together a little "how I did it" post on stacking pyrex. As for the "fondue set" I think they are just two different pots that happen to look like a set when I stack them. They have different handles so they definitely don't match. My mom thought they were a double boiler thing when she saw them. I got both of them at a thrift shop.
I love it!! The colours remind me so much of my "childhood" kitchen!! awesome! I just want to curl up and have a coffee in there :)! Good work!ReplyDelete
i wish i could live in your kitchen sorrounded by all your lovely vintage treasures.ReplyDelete
la petite pomme verte, i didn't make those but i'm thinking of making some more that are similar! Those were actually an adorable shower gift!ReplyDelete
Your kitchen looks great! I admire you repainting- I chose a green that ended up a tad more neon then I wanted but was way too lazy to redo it for now. (cough, cough... 3 years...)ReplyDelete
Cute! The built in displays your collection nicely.ReplyDelete
The color is lovely! The owls are so cute :)ReplyDelete
Is that a double-boiler?? I had no idea that those things existed pre-made...I usually just put a large bowl over a small pot. Awesome!ReplyDelete
It looks lovely!! :) Yellow is such a tough color to choose...we painted our living room yellow once, and it took *so* many coats, too! Yours is a lovely mustard shade...I've been looking for one - do you mind sharing what brand/shade it is?ReplyDelete
Michelle, it is Behr 'Solar Fusion'. We got a paint and primer in one type of paint and it covered well in 2 coats :)ReplyDelete
i love those white flowers. those are just the kind i need as i seem to kill every plant that comes my way. thanks for sharing! <3ReplyDelete
That yellow is very cheerful :) Love all the pretty little details too. The handtowels are adorable, the pyrex is great! Great work all around.ReplyDelete
