edited to add: This was my home I designed back in 2006. I shared this on this post in 2010.
I’ve been invited to participate in the Parade of Homes (blog style) from Poppies At Play. Each day this past week, four blogs have been featured on the Poppies At Play blog. I was asked to share three rooms – I chose my kitchen, laundry room and my daughters bedroom. It’s been fun checking out the various blogs and all the beautiful homes the past week. There is a lot of talent out there!!

I completely designed my kitchen. I love it and I love cooking in it. I designed the kitchen to have two islands – one is more of the prep island, wash the dishes, etc… the other island is more the baking center with the bar chairs.
The dishwasher drawer is such a great addition to a kitchen. I also have a regular sized one.
Copper farmhouse sink – I lllooooovvvveeee this sink! Sorry the photo isn’t good.
Baking is such a fun thing to do in my kitchen. I turn on Oprah and have fun watching TV while I bake.
I designed these folding pocket doors to hide all the appliances (top left cabinets). Photo below shows one of the doors open.
This was the kitchen (previous owners) before I took over; removed walls and completely gutted the kitchen. I am not an oak person and certainly don’t enjoy mauve tile and white appliances.
I love the dark wood floors and the leopard print rug with rose borders. This rug was purchased at Ballard Designs several years ago.
Laundry baskets that are always full of laundry. It’s amazing how quickly the room is cleaned up when a photo shoot is about to happen : )
This light was the ugly shiny brass until I sprayed it dark brown. The glass shades were also replaced.
My daughters room…
