Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Favorites!

I think Spring has come to Illinois, at least for this week, and it’s so nice to take Finn for a walk and not have 14 layers on. Soon the snow will be completely gone and the grass will turn green. Can’t wait.

We didn’t get to share a Friday Favorites post last week so let’s get back to it.

Love this awesome ceiling in this family room, and who could miss that beautiful light.

I’m loving this kitchen. It has two islands and more than enough room for several chefs to be cooking at the same time. Just to have a kitchen that large, wow. I wouldn’t know what to do with myself. 😉

I’ve looked at this guest cottage many times. Love its simplicity and the decorative touches throughout.

So many gorgeous things here…the wide plank floors, the archways and ceiling details.

Such a pretty home office.

Since we’re doing a kitchen remodel, I’ve looked at a ton of kitchen pictures, and was just wondering what your thoughts on kitchen size were. Would you rather have a big kitchen or small? Is it more important to have a good layout or a bigger size?

    Oh my Kristi, that is one big kitchen, I would not want to clean it. Just wiping down the counters would exhaust me. LOL I love the office, especially the blue desk top. Debbie

      It is huge Debbie, isn’t it? I wouldn’t be able to utilize all of the counter space and, you’re right, cleaning them would be awful. 😉
      Hope you’re having a good weekend.

    If I could put that kitchen and that home office together, that’s all I need in a house, ha! There’s enough room in that kitchen to keep a bed (take out the dining table!). All that it needs is a bathroom somewhere, ha!

    Though, for a realistic kitchen, I think it’s more important for the layout to be great, than the size. Yeah, small kitchens suck, but I know that even my tiny kitchen could be way better if it was set up differently!

      LOL. I think that kitchen is almost as big as my whole house.

      I think a great layout is important too. Unfortunately once it’s built it’s difficult and expensive to make huge changes to a layout. That’s what we’re learning with all of this kitchen reno. I guess you just do what you can with what you have.

      Thanks so much for stopping in today.

    My kitchen is small but I like the layout and I have a ton of cabinets. If I were able to afford a full reno, I would still keep the existing layout because it works for us. But, if building out were an option (ha, in my dreams), I would want a slightly bigger kitchen.
    Not a fan of the light fixture in the first pic, looks like a great place for spiders to take up residence. Love the wide hallway and french doors leading outside pic and the cute little office space.

      It’s great that you have a good layout in your kitchen Shirlee. I would have loved to build out our kitchen too (it would be the only way to make it bigger) but the mr. would never do it because of cost. We don’t generally stay in houses long enough to spend that kind of money anyway but it would be nice.

      LOL my husband said the same thing about the light fixture (and he hates spiders, you didn’t hear that from me). 😉

      It’s so great to hear from you Shirlee. Take care.
