Jayna’s Kitchen of Lust

Jayna’s Kitchen of Lust
I am hitting the road with GMC at The World’s Longest Yard-Sale this week.  You can check in for updates and make sure I haven’t melted to death on Facebook or Twitter! In the meantime, since you were so kind to stop by, here’s a little flashback from one of my favorites in the archives:

Dear Jayna, this might sound creepy, but can I move in with you? I don’t even need a room of my own, I’ll just stay in your kitchen. I hope that’s cool! Seriously though, if I ever actually used the phrase “drool-worthy” in real life, I would apply it to this kitchen. Love the white. Love the high ceiling. Love the chandelier. I even love how just adding crown moulding to the top of the awkward pantry corner made it look totally unawkward and like part of the room that existed all along and wasn’t just slapped into place when the previous owners realized they had an enormous barn-shaped kitchen on their hands.
Jayna has shared with me her decorating philosophy:
1. Identify all of the oak around the house.
2. Paint it white.
Works for me. More to see on Jayna’s blog HERE.

    Oh, wow! SO much better. Love the green island!

    Looks great and much more functional than before. I never really understood the cooktops on the island, it makes me think of having dinner at Benihana. Or maybe the homeowner took one look at a wall oven’s price tag and fainted like I did.

    Gorgeous! I love the non-traditional colors for the kitchen. I want to move in there too.

    Beautiful! Personally I would love to have seen those single beams unpainted and left natural, but it still looks gobsmackingly gorgeous 😀
