show us your life - kitchen

This week at Kelly's the tour is kitchens! I really love our kitchen. If I could change anything, I would want it to be a bit bigger, but other than that it's perfect!

This is the view of our kitchen from our living room.
I had a local seamstress make the valances for me. It is brown and ivory zebra on linen fabric.
We use our island for chopping, preparing, setting out dishes, etc. We love it!
Another view from the bay window.
 View of our bay window and kitchen table.
This is the view into the living room. I love that we can watch tv and talk to each other in the living room while cooking in the kitchen.
I chose Venetian Gold granite for the counters and Benjamin Moore Tuscan Tan for the wall color. I felt the two really went well together. 
This corner is a little too cluttered - we need to organize it better! 
This plaque was a wedding gift - I think it's so cute. 
Our sink
Kitchen table and bay window 
I inherited this china cabinet from my grandmother. The set of hand-painted flower dishes was a wedding gift from Danny's parents, and the other dishes were my grandmother's. 
Our fall centerpiece. Love pumpkins! 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come back soon!
