If there ever was a room that made you say “ahh” it would be this one! Sitting in front of the fire with a cozy cup of coffee sounds like the perfect fall afternoon for me!
The homeowner was game to try anything that would make her fall in love with her house again. The feature I love about this kitchen the most is the large space that was open to lots of potential uses! After clearing out furniture, the family enjoyed the wide open walk thru space, perfect for impromptu gymnastic routines. So I wanted to incorporate that feeling in the final design plans.

After painting everything a fresh coat of white paint, including the stone fireplace. I chose clean and simple light fixtures. I wanted them to fit, but not take center stage. Having a fireplace in a kitchen seemed like the perfect feature to showcase loud and proud!
I placed a pottery barn accent chair in front of the fireplace to give a place for reading and having a little quiet moment in the day. I chose a small nontraditional metal table to provide a designated homework place! The table and fabulous wall clock is from the local shop in St. Joseph MO, Jamie’s Secret Garden.
One of my favorite finds is the antique cabinet next to the fireplace. I used it to hide the TV as well as offer some additional storage!
I love the airy, relaxing feeling this coastal kitchen brings! Thanks for reading.
