• Annie, an artist, handpainted leaves and branches on the bar. They say it's always a conversation starter!
• An up-close look at the bar, along with some small tiles they picked up Orvieto, Italy.
• Another chalkboard! We were just looking at another kitchen chalkboard this morning.
• The kitchen hutch and workspace unit is from IKEA. It's the VÄRDE freestanding base cabinet, which sells for only $350. It seems to work perfectly here.
• The wall color is so bright and welcoming, and we love the personal art that fills up this kitchen. Lilacs and lavender from the garden don't hurt either.
• A view of the L-shaped kitchen.
• Any kitchen that looks out onto this landscaped garden would be a treasure.
