Do you dream of one day having a
beautiful gourmet kitchen?
Do you pin Kitchens on Pinterest
like a mad woman? :)
I know I do.
Here is my "Favorite Kitchens"
So, you can only imagine how much I loved
the kitchen I am about to share with you.
Remember I recently introduced you to a
dear friend of mine, Jeanette - when we visited
Carmel by the Sea together.
Well, it just so happens that Mrs J's
kitchen is the most viewed ever post
on HGTV's Rate My Space.
And with good reason.
Her kitchen was also featured on
the HGTV show by the same name.
She was also interviewed for the show.
How cool is that?
Look at these fabulous details...
They chose a beautiful cream glazed
cabinetry with lovely mouldings
Jeanette placed a wood cabinet
on each side of the large window.
The upper section features wire
for displaying purposes, and
it also fits in better with the design.
Isn't this stunning?
Plantation-style shutters and
a mixture of hardware highlights this
gorgeous kitchen. Jeanette says the

The next feature is one of my faves
of this space.
Look at this beautiful built-in cabinet!
This cabinet was featured on Rate
My Space as the inspiration area.
Jeanette had the built-in cabinet painted
and glazed just like the island and
cabinetry. She wanted it to appear
as a piece of furniture. The top is solid
cherry. In case you are wondering
why there is a small tv here...
There is a small sitting area just off the
dining area where they spend a lot of time
reading and watching tv.
What a cozy and inviting area!
Here you can see the layout better...
I think you can all agree why this kitchen
is so popular on Rate My Space.
What I love about this kitchen is that
although it is very custom, it
is a look that can be easily achieved
by painting your cabinets, changing your
hardware and adding some moulding
features to plain cabinets for more of a
Remember how I added inexpensive
corbels to my own plain cabinets?
Little touches really do make such
a huge difference?
It's all about creating a beautiful
look for less.
"...its all about the detail!"
Thanks, Jeanette, for allowing me to
share your remarkable kitchen with
