My Kitchen Tour – Everything and the Farmhouse Sink!

When we bought this run down house, I was thrilled with the prospect of being able to create my dream kitchen!
Ceiling high white cabinets (they are actually gray for a warmer feel but look white), marble counters,
a fun red stove and a farmhouse sink were on my wish list.
Gorgeous White Farmhouse Kitchen Renovation - love the details like the red stove, herringbone tile to the ceiling and those lights!
Here’s what I was working with – scary!
Before - you've got to see after of this farmhouse kitchen!
I desperately wanted a glass front fridge but didn’t want to stare at pizza boxes and ketchup containers
(hey, I’m no Martha Stewart!) so I got the look I wanted with a Liebherr glass wine fridge with a freezer underneath and the fridge remains behind closed doors.  Cheers!
Stunning white kitchen renovation - carrara marble counters, red stove, and glass refrigerator!
Honed carrera marble for the counters.
They get better with age but perfectionists be warned  –  stay away since anything acidic leaves etch marks.
Go straight to the fabricator and you’ll save tons of money.
Gorgeous white kitchen before and after!
I love the look of open shelving but didn’t want to deal with the constant clean up soI added a small amount to display my collections.
Open kitchen shelving built in in a gorgeous white kitchen with attention to detail.
I worked directly with a custom woodworker – no middleman involved which saved tons of money.

Thrift shop Japan creamer collection includes a kitty, pig and cow.

The pantry is behind these cabinet doors which have slide out drawers so everything is easy to reach.

Kitchen pantry - great use of space

My friend had a yard sale and her hubs put this out without her knowing – she let me buy this señorita anyway!

Choosing lighting for the house was one of the best parts of the reno.
These wine jug lights (called demijohns) are my absolute favorites!
They remind me of the collection of vintage demijohns in my dining room (see them here).

Instead of a red convertible, I prefer a red oven!
This BlueStar is ready for work with six burners, a griddle and two ovens.
Red BlueStar stove - this is a showstopper in this white kitchen.
Red oven - focal point in this white cottage kitchen.
Vintage cast iron toy mold and a bell the kids love to ring and say “dinner’s up”!

Bet I could wash a small child in this deep farmhouse sink!

A huge restaurant style faucet for a fun mod touch.

One day I’ll get around to a window treatment but in the meantime, this old landscape adds some color.

The Hubs old baby scale holds kitchen essentials – yes, we go through lots of garlic in our house!

Kitchen necessities:  fresh flowers and music (with built in speakers throughout the first floor).
I used three types of hardware – vintage look latches, cup pulls and knobs look great together.
vintage latch, vintage style cabinet latch
drawer pulls, bin pulls, vintage pulls
Carerra marble tile (bought on Ebay!) up to the ceiling and around a doorway.
Herringbone marble tile to the ceiling for a custom look in this kitchen.

  1. Beautiful kitchen! And what a unique use of a paper cutter!

  2. WOW! WOW! I just did a kitchen redo (polar opposite of this) a few years ago and wish I didn’t still love mine. This is fabulous! Love the jug lights…. really love…. The idea of the wine fridge on the freezer?? Brilliant! Just amazing! Enjoy it! Mine is 5 years out and I really do still love it, but I could live in yours too. :)

  3. Wow! Love the transformation & that red range! Gorgeous!

  4. you really do have a dream kitchen! gorgeous!

  5. Gorgeous! I too love the lighting and so many unique accents. And a touch of red is always a good thing!

  6. Kelly, your kitchen is gorgeous! I’m in love with your giant, organized, and gorgeous pantry and your RED stove. Drooling. Thanks for giving us a tour!

  7. AMAZING space! The lighting is gorgeous. So unique! And I love all the little vintage touches you’ve added. The step stool is my favorite–and for a $1?!?

  8. Top honors coming at you tomorrow morning from our RRR features, congrats!

  9. I’ve seen your kitchen featured so many places – I just had to come check it out and wow, it is fantastic! The pantry, the stove, the farmhouse sink… just perfect!

  10. Kitchen looks amazing! My dream is to have a farmhouse sink in my home..when I get one! :) Love the stove too! found your blog via the shady porch!

  11. Such a gorgeous makeover! Every detail is perfect, I esp. love the lights over the island and the red stove. Off to see more of your charming home.

  12. Those lights are very cool! I love your sink too!

  13. this belongs in several magazines, kelly! so gorgeous–love that stove, esp.:)

  14. We just bought a run down farm house, just as in Monday. So, it still looks like the before pictures only with layers, upon layers of filth (and a leaky, musty basement). I figure in 10 or 15 years we will get everything just about right. Your kitchen is inspiring and what will keep me working! Gorgeous…

  15. Love, love, LOVE your kitchen! I love the creative use of “non-kitchen” items in your kitchen. The paper cutter for the tray is amazing! Your sink is wonderful too! I have a red stove also – Bertazzoni from Italy. My kitchen remodel is taking a little longer because we live in the kitchen daily (I have five kids) and we have had behind the scenes things to deal with like wiring and plumbing. I’m bookmarking your site to show my husband for inspiration to get our kitchen finished.

  16. I’m just a tad bit jealous of that red stove. well, maybe a little more than a tad. Beautiful beautiful room!

  17. Absolutely LOVE the tile backsplash!! So pretty!

  18. Wow, that kitchen is the ridiculous…ly awesome! Can’t believe the people on Apartment Therapy bashed it…they must be jealous!! I know I am! I’m itching to do a slight kitchen remodel, but waiting for funds to plump back up. When I do, I definitely will be putting in a farm sink! Love!!

  19. Oh my goodness! I love all your vintage stuff and how creatively you’ve repurposed the demijohn jug lamps, the papercutter and the milk bottle vases! Beautiful job decorating using wonderful old things and keeping it all so fresh and bright! Your red stove is fabulous! The marble tile backsplash is gorgeous ! Everything is just beautiful! Very inspiring to me!
    Be blessed! Linda @ Grandmalay’s Daydreams

    when i wind the lottery will you come and do my kitchen?? I love your ideas. that is a beautiful kitchen!!!

  21. My compliments on your FABULOUS kitchen! I’m in LOVE with the sink, the cool vintage look faucet, cabinets and tile! Amazing how it all looks so wonderfully blended. You stated the tile came from ebay, may I ask if it is carrara, calcutta, marble or what AND what size? I looked on ebay and noticed it comes in different sizes. I’d appreciate any information as I really like the look you have achieved! BTW, I’m following you (Pinterest). Thanks!

  22. Angie C says:

    I don’t know what the rest of your house looks like but I don’t really care- I’m infatuated with this one (the lights, the STOVE, the SINK!!) so I’m ready to move in. This will just be my room, k? :)

  23. I love the backsplash tile – i want to do the same thing but with a round pattern marble. I didn’t think of trying to find it on eBay – thanks!!

  24. LOVE your kitchen! Esp. the lights and stove!

  25. I am so jealous…but in a good way! I need you in Canada.

  26. Just adding the love to all these wonderful comments! Your kitchen is beautiful and everything is so well thought out. Of course, the red stove is to die for and I love looking at the before pictures and trying to see how in the world you were able to come up with such a beautiful result! I’m also a huge fan of the herringbone and love that you took it all the way up to the ceiling. Brava Kelly!

  27. love it! we re-modeled our kitchen just a month before you did (according to your date of this post anyway). we also did white custom cabinetry and carrara marble. i’m thinking i need to do an updated posted on the wear and tear on the carrara. you said it best–they’ll get better with age and also perfectionists beware. i looooove mine. still. will forever. mine is on my blog if you care to look

  28. I adore your kitchen!

  29. This is amazingly beautiful! It’s cool and crisp, but so warm and inviting! I love it!

  30. I am in the beginning stages of remodeling the kitchen in our 130+ house. I love looking at others ideas. I love love love the red range! I want a red island, but after seeing this, I may save my pennies for a range like this! Your kitchen is beautiful! Great job!

  31. Wow. I really am speechless and that’s the only word I could get out. You did an incredible job. It’s all so pretty and fresh. Chances are I will never have the opportunity to do something like this so I enjoyed seeing your transformation. Came over from your link on Google+. Happy New Year!

  32. I am drooling over your red sink! Your kitchen is gorgeous!

  33. Your kitchen is absolutely georgeous!! In the preliminary stages of planning a kitchen redo…….mostly just lipstick and rouge……and yours is quite an inspiration! LOVE your collections and using the paper cutter is genius!

  34. Gorgeous!!! I’m so jealous! I love it all!! xoxo

  35. Genevieve says:

    Hey Kelly! I’m looking for light bulbs like that so I can fit them down into wine bottles! I’m having a really super hard time finding them though!! Do you have any suggestions? (I’m looking for gold or amber lighting, if that helps.) Thanks a lot, I hope you see this!

  36. Kelly, I LOVE your kitchen…but had never seen the before shot or the full walk through. Gorgeous and impressive, my friend!!
    Hope you are having a great weekend!

  37. The vile virility remedy known as” Himalayan farmacia on line” can
    fetch as much as they are usually manufactured by such top brand laboratories as Pfizer and Wyeth.

  38. How have I never seen this post before?!? Oh my gosh, it’s stunning. Seriously. True Love. I’m gonna go daydream now……

  39. Your kitchen is so beautiful Kelly!!! Love touring it !!! Thanks!

  40. I would love to have a double oven! 6 burners? Red? Love it!

  41. Michelle says:

    Love your kitchen!! Would you mind giving more information about your Ebay tile purchase? What kind is it and size? Even a link to the seller would be great – I would absolutely love to have the same kind!! thanks!

  42. LOVE, LOVE the kitchen! Wow what an improvement! You did a fantastic job and I love the white!!
    Where in the world did you buy the darling owl at??

  43. Love it Kelly! Every bit of it. I would not want to change a thing either.

  44. Stunning kitchen! I love the contrast of the white and light gray with the bold red. Just beautiful! I’ll come over for dinner anytime!

  45. Love your new kitchen! I’m confused with the layout. Where was the old door located?

  46. Gorgeous transformation! I love all of the little touches the best. They completely make the space. =)

  47. Love Love Love!!! I want a white kitchen sooo bad, but i am afraid my cabinets would always be dirty im kinda of slob haha

  48. That is so gorgeous! I love it…a little jealous, too! I love how it went from dark to bright and cheery – big plus! Thanks for sharing, even though I am now depressed when I walk into my kitchen! :)

  49. Those LIGHTS …. omg they are PERFECTION. I absolutely love your taste!

  50. Very nice redo on a very typically retro kitchen. Be careful that old kitchen will be exactly what’s in style in a year or two. Great post!

  51. Beautiful transformation! The stove is to die for!! It is my favorite thing!!!! Love all the vintage pieces spred throughout. I know you are proud!

  52. Oh Kelly it’s so beautiful… It’s truly one of the moments that no one could even believe the before!!! I have always loved your kitchen!!

  53. What a great kitchen! Could you please share details on converting the demijohns to light fixtures? Did it require custom fabrication or stock parts? Are those picture lights or filament bulbs? I had worried about the build up of heat without a vent. Many thanks!

  54. I love your lights over the island. We were thinking about something like that but had one concern. Does the glare from the light bulb ever a problem?

  55. Where did you get your pendant lights? I’m looking for some similar to that.


  56. I just love all of this! Our kitchens are very similar and I’m remodeling. Will be implementing a lot of the same details… I just love this! I’ve pinned like crazy on Pinterest. Just lovely!

  57. Hey there! So i’ve been literally scouring the internet for these lights and can’t find them anywhere. :-( could you tell me where you got them at? Thank you!

  58. Stunning kitchen! Lovely details. I love the pendant lights! Kari

  59. I totally love your demijohn pendant lights. Can you please tell me where you found them? I’m thinking of trying to make my own but like some other people mentioned, I’m afraid of heat build up.
    Thanks so much!

  60. So charming… Love the red range!

  61. Do you remember where you found those wonderful demijohn lights?

  62. Hi – where did you get your cabinet latches from? They’re exactly what we’re looking for!
    Thank you!

  63. The vintage latches are beautiful. Do you recall where you got them?

  64. It looks AMAZING!

    Quick question: what color is your grout on that herringbone? In some photos it looks white, and in others it looks like a light gray…planning on doing that same herringbone on my fireplace surround and can’t decide on grout color! :)

    Thanks!!!! -j

  65. Thank you very much for sending me the link to your kitchen. I absolutely love everything about it, most especially your stove, the farmhouse sink, and the hidden pantry. What a transformation. Love love love it.

  66. Hello Kelly,
    I just LOVE your kitchen! Can you, please, post where you got your demijohn lights? I didn’t notice any info on that. I totally love them and they would be perfect in my living room above a long table. Do they give off a lot of heat? Any glare?
    Thank you!

  67. OMG,what a transformation! Love your light fixtures and all the special touches.
    I am so excited we just ordered new granite for our kitchen. I would love new cabinets
    and flooring too!

  68. Could you please tell me what color and brand of grout you used with the carera marble backspkash

  69. Please tell us where you bought the DemiJohn Lighting

  70. Yippie – thanks so much!
