A dining room converted to a kitchen fit for an emporer!

The new owners of this charming 'bama home had the challenge of converting the formal dining room to its new kitchen.  Although a bit too formal for me (enter, the Napoleon III silver-leaf mirror above the Five-Star stove), it nonetheless has an inviting warmth and friendliness.

I love the arched built-in shelves!



Notice how the owners kept the feel of the formal dining room by building the marble sink to resemble a buffet, and the 9' long oval island, a dining table.

I think this kitchen probably looks great at night, with dim lighting.


Beautiful light from the large bay window and double-doors opening to the patio. This is my kind of kitchen view!

Happy Sun day!

  1. I have often said the Kitchen should really be called the "living room" because we spend so much there. Never thought of the "dining room". It doesn't matter what you call it I would love to see what great creations I could up with in a lovely "room" like that!! Happy food comes from happy rooms and how nice it would be cooking with that view !

  2. I don't know about you, but I do NOT like the light fixture in the dining room. The shade pointed at an angle is odd.

    1. I have to agree... the light fixture with the shade pointed oddly wasn't the best choice.
