Show & Tell | My Favorite Room

Do you pick your favorite room based on the amount of time you spend in that room, or lack of time you spend in there?
Is is a room where family and friends gather, or a spot for just you?
Over the almost nine years that we have lived in our house, we have updated a lot.
We went from a house straight out of 1984, to a home that I truly love.
A place where we have our family and friends over.
A place where X came home from the hospital.
A place we truly call our own.

With all that said, I have two favorite rooms in my house.
And I have actually talked about both of these rooms before.
First up is our dining room.
It is the very first room we updated after moving in, and I still love it to this day.
We have been focusing on having dinner in there every night to be together as a family, getting away from the TV, teaching X good manners, and to just enjoy the room.
It is painted my favorite colors, and has the dining room table, chairs, hutches that Mic and I had made in Amish country.

The second room on my list is our kitchen.
While the cabinets are the same original ones painted white, the rest of the space has been completely redone.
And it has taken awhile to do so!
From the large stainless steel sink to the gas range to the gorgeous counter top (picked out by Mic - good job!) to the pulls on the doors that give it just a bit of uniqueness (similar).
I love it!
I love making dinner in there, sitting at the counter talking with friends and family, etc.
I can also see into the family room to make sure X is behaving, and possibly catch up on a show while loading the dishwasher.
And the colors! That grayish-brown color on the walls is seriously one of my favorites!
Paired with the white cabinets and black counter tops and appliances it just has my heart!

If we ever move, I would love to take these two rooms with me!

What is your favorite room of your house?
Does it get a lot of use or just occasionally?

  1. I love the color in your dining room!! So pretty!

  2. i love your kitchen!!!! we really need to re-do ours!!! its the last thing that majorly needs done in our house (besides finishing Bre's room)

  3. OMG, I love the color in the dining room! I had a deep red in my kitchen/dining area in my old house but it just won't work in my new house because my living room/eating area and kitchen are one big long room and I long for that color still! Bold and beautiful! Also, big fan of the sink--I just upgraded mine before Christmas and I didn't know how much I could love a sink--lol!

  4. I love your kitchen!! The color of the walls with the white cabinets- gorgeous!!

  5. I love your table/chairs in the dining room and the edges on your counter top!!

  6. OH I love your kitchen, I feel like we have somewhat the same taste. If Mr. wasn't in the picture, that's exactly how I would have done it...hehe :) He likes traditional I like more modern...we compromise...mostly we do what he wants, since I don't particularly care and he cares a lot...we're so backwards!

  7. I am super impressed you guys made the dining room furniture, so awesome!

  8. I'm totally in love with your dining room table!!! I can't believe you made that! Wanna come make me one?! ;-)

  9. Your kitchen is gorgeous! I only wish I could have that fabulous of a kitchen! Also love the dining room paint color.
