I was doing a little design research and found some pretty “cottage kitchen” pictures for my files. I thought I’d share them with you!

Even though some of these might be dream kitchens for many people, I believe you can often take bits and pieces of a dream and reinvent it in your own home. In your own little way. Yep, using your creative genius! We can’t always recreate things exactly, but you can simulate the feel, the colors, the ambience, the displays.

So, soak in a little kitchen inspiration! Enjoy!

The Beach House: The Endless Remodel

The Beach House: The Endless Remodel

As promised, here are the latest photos showing the progress on the beach house! As you can see, it is not done yet (it’s been under remodel for over a year now!). Darn, I need a vacation! But things are coming along. The house is just outside of in Arch Cape on the Oregon Coast. This has been our family’s (my parents, sister’s family and ours) vacation home for around 12 years. It started out as a 1970’s style box completely void of character, but some remodeling was done back when we first got the house. Now it is basically a whole new place from the wiring on out.

The right side of the house has a whole new wing with a new bedroom, sunroom, bedroom and a heated garage (for parties and ping pong!).

The porch was added 12 years ago, but the front door and lights are new.

Part of this deck is new, including the hot tub overlooking the ocean! Can’t wait for that!

Above you can see the front door. This hall on the first level leads to three of the bedrooms, a bathroom and the laundry room.

As you turn to the right upon entering, you can go up the stairs to the main living areas. Through the archway is a bedroom/office and garage.

This is the laundry room with an outside entrance to the porch.

This (above and below) is our bedroom with alcoves for our girls to sleep in behind those partial walls. Our family has grown so much since we bought the house we needed to remodel to accommodate everyone! There is also a bunk room next to this room for my son and my nephew and another bedroom for my sister and her husband and little girl. We can walk out of our room to the deck with the hot tub.

Our room will have a Murphy bed on that long wall on the right, so we can put the bed up for more floor space when the whole crew is vacationing together.

Now we are on the upper/main floor. Chaos! It is a large open space for living with the kitchen in one corner. The photo is taken from the new sunroom which will have built in bookcases and a window seat.

Above you can kind of make out where the kitchen is. The kitchen was already there and had been remodeled previously.

Above and below you can see the views out the windows from the living room on the main/upper level.

Above and below are closets and my parent’s bedroom. They will now be living at the house most of the time since they have sold their other home. Lucky them!

Lastly, you can see the hot tub from up above!

Next time, hopefully we will have some completed rooms to show!
