Once upon a time, the author of The Enchanted Home dreamed of creating a forever home to incorporate favorite architectural and timeless design styles and provide a breathtaking backdrop for memory making. As the dream unfolded, she brought a legion of blog readers like moi along for the ride, and that is how the lovely shop for homewares and site “The Enchanted Home” were born. I’m lucky to call her friend and had the pleasure of interviewing her. It’s an oldie but goodie so let’s revisit Enchanted Home Kitchen: French Country Kitchen Ideas to Inspire, which spotlights a special interior within this glorious home!
Tina’s Enchanted Home: French Country Kitchen Ideas to Inspire
If you follow Tina’s IG or blog, then you know she creates inspiring posts which weave together stories from her life, work, passions, and whims.
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. (Just before she moved from this home, she shared this peek!)
Isn’t it charming with all of the contrast (rustic wood beams with pristine kitchen cabinets and elegant lighting!
So much fine craftsmanship and interior design planning went into this grand space with a French accent! Let’s explore it in more detail.
Building a French Kitchen in Her Dream Home
Her inspiring French inspired home…I thought the long year it took to build our own French Country home in 2007 was a long time, but Tina’s grand French chateau (above) 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.

Before and After Construction
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.
(Above) Wire from kitchen cabinets: Heathcast of the UK. Pattern: Diamond Regency grill in bronze finish. (This brand may not have a web presence at the moment.)
Notice how there is a charming mix of metals including brass, bronze, and more. Such details instantly suggest age. Hard to believe it’s a new build!
Blue and white is Tina’s signature, and The Enchanted Home bloomed into a shop to spread love for it (plus a variety of lovely homewares!).
So beautiful even before the finishes were finished!
Do you love the oversized marble tiled backsplash. Our eyes get so accustomed to seeing the traditional 3×6 size!
Traditional and Timeless Kitchen Design
So much to admire here including the gorgeous balloon shades, floral arrangements, topiaries, and the natural materials which feel so authentically rich and full of character.
Ahhhhhh. It’s such an inspiring space with so many exquisite finishes and romantic moments.
