I had plans however there have been so many different priorities that it received pushed to the underside.

That is the area on the day we first seemed on the home:

The present sped up our renovation priorities. On the time, the angle of the present was speculated to function the enterprise of The Home That Lars Constructed, which is why we did this room within the first place and why it was taken out.

You possibly can see from these earlier than images that it’s actually part of the hallway however carved out in a u-shape. It was already set for plumbing with shops for a fridge and an oven.

And this attractive lighting fixture. I imply, I actually ought to have left it 😉 

We had just a little mini fridge on the alternative wall, so fundamental wants have been met, if not completely matted!

Inspiration for the cake-inspired kitchen

I instantly partnered with Fireclay Tile on the challenge. With their breath of colours and sizes, I knew there was quite a lot of synergy and freedom there to do no matter I needed to take action my thoughts went wild.

Envisioning the kitchenette as just a little whimsical retreat, I instantly considered what you wish to do in a kitchen–eat cake. And it simply type of went from there. I gathered photos of frosting

And tried to determine learn how to translate that into tile. I additionally needed it to really feel like a Parisian bistro just like the picture under, so among the particulars would come by way of there. I’m going to be speaking extra concerning the course of tomorrow so keep tuned for that.

To not go away any confectionary out, I additionally needed it to really feel like a sweet store. My 5 yr outdated son thanks me for that just about each day.

Then it was a problem to see how lengthy we might maintain the cake out. It was 6 months. Ha! I very a lot want we might have taken a chew!

The other wall of this kitchenette I had deliberate on doing a customized banquette seating. I’m actually glad we didn’t spend the vitality doing it after it was minimize! However we did stage just a little short-term seating space with a cute brass bistro seat.

If you happen to keep in mind, we did a tutorial for that matching vase.

Parisian Bistro Lighting

The Parisian bistro particulars got here by way of with among the {hardware} and lighting. I received these globe pendant with some floral detailing on the high from Mitzi.

We used this white undermount sink from Signature {Hardware} and it really works nice!


Like the opposite kitchen, we haven’t put in the {hardware} but. I actually needed to check out one thing enjoyable and customized perhaps out of ceramic, however I didn’t have time. I feel we’d put in some traditional brass knobs and pulls.


Like our different kitchen, we used Cliq Studios for the kitchen cupboards. We used the Jensen fashion, which is extra fashionable, within the silk coloration. With all of the tile work and enjoyable particulars I needed to guarantee that the cupboards felt cleaner.

We determined to not put an oven within the area as a result of we didn’t suppose we might use it and fortunately, we haven’t wanted it. Or a dishwasher for that matter. No laborious core cooking down right here!

Okay! That’s it! Our candy little cake kitchen. Inform me what you suppose! And keep tuned for tomorrow’s publish concerning the tile!
