Once upon a time, my friend, Tina of The Enchanted Home dreamed of creating a forever home which would incorporate her favorite architectural and timeless designs and provide a breathtaking backdrop for memory making. As her dream unfolded, she decided that it might be a more meaningful and fruitful journey if she took some friends along for the ride, and that is how her popular and lovely blog “The Enchanted Home” was born. I’m lucky to call her friend and have had the pleasure of interviewing her.
If you have visited Tina’s blog, then you know she creates these inspiring posts which weave together stories from her life, her work, her passions, and her whims. I love her posts on Sundays where she shares a variety of topics, and this week’s post was especially real. The Enchanted Home grew into a busy successful brand with a shop and E-design services, yet Tina’s hospitality and blog continue to be a warm, engaging space on the internet.
Her inspiring French inspired home…I thought the long year it took to build our own prior French Country home was a long time, but Tina’s grand French chateau took more than 3 years of patient, loving craftsmanship to bloom. It has brought so many of us joy to watch Tina’s home, blog, and business flourish, and because she loves to cook and entertain, she treats us to the smartest menu ideas and hospitality hints.
Why I just had to share lovely details within Tina’s kitchen…Lately, the emails have been streaming in with questions about how Tina’s exquisitely crafted French Country kitchen came to be. Hello Lovely’s audience of interior design professionals and home decorators desire to have the veil lifted to reveal details and secrets behind the design. Who can blame you? I’m forever curious too!
What do we love about this French Country kitchen design besides its gracious owner who generously shares her recipes, floral tips, entertaining ideas, and decor inspiration? Creamy kitchen cabinetry with timeless style, rustic wood ceiling beams, bell jar pendant lights, a massive center island painted black, calacatta marble counters, the dreamy range, reclaimed stone flooring, blue and white accents, duet of farm sinks, and so much more!
Let’s ask our questions about the details and sources within Tina’s French Country kitchen in the comments at the end of this post, and we will allow Tina to respond as she wishes to enlighten us about some of the key ingredients in the design of this amazing kitchen!
When this French Country kitchen was taking shape, Tina’s readers were treated to a front row seat to the construction and progress. Let’s peek at the before and afters to appreciate all of the hidden details and layers involved in the creation of the kitchen.
