Cape Cod Cottage

Yesterday I had my wisdom teeth consultation and it was enough to make me nauseous just sitting through it. I think I was pale. #badwithpain #wimp #terrified.  If you follow me on Twitter, you know that right after that little fiasco I walked straight across the street to get my toes done.  I felt much better after that, of course!  So from now until Monday morning, when I go under the knife {mild exaggeration?}, I'm going to think positively.


I will be fine. Everyone gets this done some time or another. And everyone is fine. So I will be, too.
It's working already (:


So because of my rough afternoon/ I hung out with friends last night until way too late, I'm going to show you my absolute favorite kitchen right now.  I can hardly contain myself. If I was building a home right now, I'd want a lot of these features included in my kitchen!


The fab little number sits inside this darling cottage:







Love the idea of concealing the fridge with the same cabinet appliqué on the appliances.

Favorite things about the space? The charcoal painted island, copper pots and pans displayed almost as art, crisp white cabinetry, pops of rich color {perfect colors for a kitchen, too!}, and the old fashion looking stove/oven. Seriously amazing.


Is this kitchen making you swoon, too?
Love,

PS. I'm off to hang out with Cristin, the talented blogger behind Simplified Bee. So thrilled she's allowing me to shadow her this summer! (:

  1. That kitchen is gorgeous! Try not to be worried about the wisdom teeth, you'll do great! I had the same anxiety when I got mine out last summer. I wrote a little 'diary' of my experience on my blog, it might help if you just want to read about what it's like :). If you have any questions or qualms about the procedure, let me know. I'd be happy to help!

  2. Love that kitchen and love Cape Cod style houses...I worked for a designer kitchen store for years, so kitchens are my favorite design elements to a house because I know the most about them. This one is wonderful! The hidden fridge has always been a favorite design aspect.

  4. I've never had mine removed so I don't have any advice. I'll pray for your thoughts and for a super fast, non-chipmunk face, healing proccess... :)

  6. That kitchen is the perfect beachy cottage kitchen.

    And dont worry too much about the wisdom teeth... you basically just go to sleep and wake up in what seems like a second later, all finished!

  7. I had to share my wisdom teeth story to make you feel better.. when I had my consulation I felt so sick that I excused myself to go to the bathroom and promptly fainted inside the stall, hitting my head on the toilet! The Dr. runs in, starts using smelling salts on me, my Mom is behind him bawling, and I had to be wheeled out in a wheelchair. Mortifying!! So don't worry, your experience can't be worse than mine! Good luck with it! :-)

  9. My advice...get em done now! I had mine taken out at 29, the day after hubby came down with kidney stones. A sick hubby, two kids and a drugged momma makes for an interesting trip to the ER for dad!! The girls each only have two, and have not chosen to have theirs out. Elie refuses, which is fine...mom and dad are only paying for braces once (wait make that twice now)and Kate has had enough to deal with with her headaches. It really was a piece of cake, I was fine, and only needed advil. I hate pain meds! Make me feel worse than I already do.

  11. I had my wisdom teeth removed while in college... it wasn't too bad. You'll get through it. Just get a mani/pedi afterwards. ;)

    I'm also in love with the charcoal painted kitchen island. That really stood out to me in a sea of whitewashed cabinets and walls. I'm usually slowly assembling my dream house, and these images were great!

  12. Wow that kitchen is so pretty!

    I had my wisdom teeth removed a few years ago...it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Good luck! I'll be praying for you!

  13. Good luck with your wisdom teeth, it really wasn't as bad as I expected and I HATE needles so that was the scariest part. The best part was all of the milkshakes of course!

  15. Love that kitchen. Kitchens are always the gathering place in a home, so it's important they're fabulous!

    About your wisdom teeth, I had my taken out a few years back and cried right through the entire process prior to them putting me out. It was so bad that they had the gas mask on me, while the nurse was wiping the tears from my face.

    Take it from a scaredy cat herself - you will be just fine! I promise.

  16. That kitchen and cottage are both adorable!! Don't worry about your wisdom teeth- I can't actually speak from expeience bc I am one of those weirdos with all 4 of my wisdom teeth still intact but I promise it will be easy peesy! Enough the downtime to relax and drink smoothies and ice cream!

  17. I had 5 wisdom teeth, all impacted, and I survived! My mom made me lots of purple food (my favorite color, just like all the cool people) to cheer me up. And my friends brought me ice cream!

  18. You poor little thing!! I wish I could come and we could hang out and eat ice cream and watch movies! #perfectday

  19. Swooning over the kitchen is a given...but I might be swooning just a tad over you getting your wisdom teeth out, too (and just to clarify, it's not the good way). It's not fun. I hope you have a stock of good girlie movies and ice cream...thank goodness you are at home, nobody takes care of you like mom!!! Love you, M's mom! (c:

  23. I think I got pale for you! However, I know you will be fine, and are sending positive thoughts your way!! That kitchen is adorable. Love the copper pots.

  24. Getting your wisdom teeth pulled out is no fun! Goog luck! I pull them out as they start to hurt and had two different experiences each time.

    On an other note I love Cape Cod style. If I could I would like in a home like this somewhere on the East Coast!

  27. What a beautiful house and kitchen. I'm into older homes, rather than the newer McMansions or common subdivision homes. The character is what gets me, and this kitchen has a lot of character. Loving the beadboard walls and the gray color.
