Soft, Ethereal European Country Kitchen Designs

Welcome to a new year of friendship, beauty, and blessing as together we say HELLO to LOVELY! Whether we are exploring Soft, Ethereal European Country Kitchen Designs and inspiring ideas for home decor or musing imaginatively about mysteries within the lovely universe and the soul, I hope to bring gifts of peace to your everyday. I long to sprinkle bits of fairy dust upon this small sanctuary for seekers of lovely, ever sealing it with blessing and light.

A mix of whites in my timelessly tranquil kitchen with European country decor, Viatera Minuet quartz, and Belgian linen - Hello Lovely Studio.
Hello Lovely Studio

I’m not particularly wise, holy, or equipped to be sprinkling. But I’m open. And willing.

Peaceful living doesn’t have a solitary signature look – we’re a diverse people with varied experiences, tastes, temperaments, and values. And I’m a one woman show in a sea of bloggers and brands – a dreamer in pajamas, still blogging from her heart early mornings or late at night – weaving imperfect sentences into visual expressions of loveliness.

Daily Transformation Inspiration

Stream of consciousness reflections inspired by the bespoke work here and wisdom drawn from my messy life just now, right where I am…

What am I over-complicating in my life this very moment due to a limited awareness, lack of faith, or sense of hopelessness? How might I transform and begin to trust and see with new eyes through a lovelier lens?

Am I ready to seek the grace for new eyes?

My heart is sending yours a reminder that YOU CAN create beautiful things and enjoy more meaningful days even with these present circumstances before you. Baby steps. Big love. Belief that new mercies are on their way.

    To see such loveliness created from a soft, quiet palette is in and of itself beautiful. To view the video with the accompaniment of the simplest music brought about through a gentle voice’s lyrics and touchingly soft instrumentation, makes it all the more of a perfection in relaxation.

    Farmhouse sinks are calling out to me and have been for some time. I would redo my kitchen tomorrow but we are certain that investing in this home would not be better than moving to another. Hubby and I have this discussion every Saturday morning. Would love to design, plan and swoon over kitchens with this “feeling”, which seems ironic because yesterday I announced that I was really burned out on cooking. Maybe if I cooked in a lovely place…. My current kitchen IS lovely, just not my own design, right? Maybe I could be more passionate about those burdensome weeknight dinners if I felt the magic of a bespoke kitchen in the English countryside. Can you relate? Do you know the kitchen fairy? Have her call me. Thank you, Michele. P.S. It will be Spring very soon.

      I am totally with you. I get aggravated with our kitchen when I entertain because it just cannot accommodate the crowds that want to gather in it! I need that kitchen fairy too. Thank goodness spring is coming…what a grey day it was! Thanks for reading and keeping the mood cheery! xox

    The most beautiful thing about the video was the quiet water just outside the window, the graceful swans drying their wings, and the raft of ducks swimming about. I dream to walk that shore, sit on the grass in the quiet of the day just watching the waterfowl and feel at peace.
    Blessings,
