Home Tour {Kitchen}

We had a low key weekend at home. I got a lot of housework done, as well as some studying. While that is not the most fun or glamorous way to spend a long weekend, it needed to be done. I love crossing things off my to do list, so that felt good.
Here is another room in our house, the kitchen. I spend a good bit of my time here, and I study at the little breakfast area just off the kitchen.
Looking from the living area
I would like to get some bar stools to go here

I know red is not the most original choice for a kitchen, but I love the warmth it adds. I've seen some truly gorgeous kitchens done in white and light colors, and while that would probably flow into the living area better, I just love the bright cheery red.
It is a hot humid day today in Columbia, SC, and I am so very ready for some cooler weather. Today I work until 5, go to pure barre, then home to have a bite for dinner and study. It feels like a long first day back after the long weekend. Stay cool everyone!


  1. Your kitchen is so new and pretty! I love the granite countertops! I'm loving the house tour!

  2. I like it a lot! Usually I am not crazy about stainless steel appliances, but they look very nice here.

    Since you cleaned all weekend, now you won't have anything to do on your next day off! I find it to be relaxing, in a way, because I get it over with.

  3. I love it! It's so cute. I'm also super jealous of all your cabinet space!
