The Country House Kitchen Ideas....

  because there is a beautiful vista we need big windows and ceilings as high as possible,
these are some ideas I'm liking...
we are no where near ready for decorating, we're at the taking out walls stage not.

but, it's a dream now and in a few weeks it will become reality if all
goes well.

the good part is that this property is not so far from Houston
that it's tiring to drive, it's about 3 hours.
sometimes I can come & go the same day.

love this table & the chairs & the light fixtures, but couldn't work with those curtains, 
just need more dramatic openings I think.

and don't think I'm being extravagant, we have so much stuff in storage
lockers we can re-purpose a lot of it for this house.

it's still not fit to photograph,
but one of the bedrooms is coming along really well.

so there is a place to sleep, then you open the door to redo mayhem.

but, one step at a time...

Kentucky Derby coming up next weekend.
I won't be going to the actual  Derby this year...
but to a way fabulous soiree here in Houston...
outfit post coming up shortly.

now, which horse should I pick?



  1. Ma chère Marsha bonjour,
    J'aime les très grandes cuisines où l'on peut cuisiner et recevoir ses amis et partager le repas ensemble tous...
    Des photos de rêve !
    Le Kentucky derby doit être une rencontre passionnante...
    Je dois participer au master polo de Saint-Tropez en septembre et j'aurais aimé obtenir des photos pour une éventuelle peinture !
    Gros bisous

  2. Can't wait to see what you come up with Marsha! I love your inspiration photos

  3. Beautiful chandies for the kitchen. Thank you for sharing lovely lady. Have a great week.

  4. Love the charming inspiration photos Marsha. It will be exciting to see the final reveal. Can't wait to see what your Derby outfit will be! XO

  5. I am in love with the steel door idea.....I truly look forward to the reveal!!!!

  6. Beautiful concept photos but whatever you come up with will be best of all.
    We are currently renovating and just ordered an extension trestle table from el viejo mexico in the Heights - we simply couldn't find what we needed elsewhere and they created what we wanted from several photo ideas. This might be a way to get just what you want for the space alloted ... You have fabulous taste - Enjoy seeing dreams become reality!

  7. Marsha, it's beautiful and when you're finished, it will be stunning! Thanks for the KY Derby reminder; I always manage to forget.

  8. Beautiful inspiration photos! We love our home in the country ... the renos were truly a labour of love (4years and counting- almost done), but so worth every drop of sweat and frustration. Now we are tackling renos on our city home. Sometimes I think maybe we should just simplify and have a condo .. then I beautiful day like today, a walk in the forest and I say, yes, it is worth it ... going between city and country. Can't wait for you to share photos .. wishing you a great week..C. (HHL)

  9. Absolutely love!! If I could do it over I would have iron windows to let in the scenery, your kitchen is going to be fabulous!

  10. gorgeous curating, as usual: getting compliments every time i wear my necklaces, multi-strand beads with turquoise, etc... thanks for lovely additions to my rather utilitarian collection.

  11. That mix of old and new... Beautiful.

  12. I especially like the stone floor with no mortar!! LOVE!!

  13. First and second are my favorites, love its rustic and natural style.
    Do you have any idea how nice it is to come here?
    A feast for my eyes, that's what it is.
    Have a nice day, Marsha.


Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have take a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
