Hello everyone.
I hope your week is going well. 

As promised, today I am giving you a small tour of our kitchen. Since it is all an open space, I like it to be an extension of our family room and always try to combine both spaces to flow together.

I always start with the island. The vignette is very simple, I used the old Fleur de Lis candle holders, a monogrammed plate and a little greenery in a small galvanized container.

 The pot rack is back to its regular everyday look.

Around the kitchen I have a few small vignettes, but nothing new. It is all items you have already seen.

On the larger counter I keep a basket where we keep our cell phones and keys. Next to it you will find a small vignette around our house phone. The kids make fun of us and say we are the only people anymore with house phones.  
What can I say? :)

I carried the colors of the family room into the breakfast room by adding some of the same color pillows.

And I decorated the table with a simple runner and my old box decorated with burlap flowers.

I used the orange pillows on the end chairs and the turquoise as part of the window seat decor.

The small table I bought at Kirklands years ago just holds some faux breads and cheese.

Here is looking from the family room.

 And this is my view when I am in there cooking.

You all know it probably won't stay like this long, but for now, I am happy with the simple clean look.
 I thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by and visit. I probably won't get a chance to post again in the next couple of days, so I wish you all a great rest of the week.
Take care and see you soon.

  1. Beautiful, Maria Elena! Your kitchen is warm, and so welcoming - great job decorating!

  2. I've always loved pictures of your kitchen,'s simply beautiful and while I may sound like I'm looking for accolades, we share much the same style. I like to have the things I use and also what I love on my counters and island. When I see clean, uncluttered countertops I wonder where the personality is. Yet sometimes I'm clearing off space to roll out dough or have room for multiple dishes, bowls, platers, etc., lol!

    The view of your family room is wonderful-we stay in touch with our families that way. I have this, too, and it's great!


  3. Enjoyed seeing all your lovely decorations in your beautiful kitchen! We both have cell phones but have a "house phone" too so you are not the ONLY one! :)

  5. The simple, clean look is a very nice look, Maria Elena. Everything flows perfectly. Did you make all of the burlap flowers, even the ones that look like hydrangeas? If you did, wow, you did a great job!
