North Shore Kitchen Tour, Oct. 3rd

Not on the tour ... this kitchen from our last home.

View some spectacular classic kitchens
with modern styling during the 2nd Annual
Heart of the Home Kitchen Tour
this Saturday, Oct. 3rd from 11 am to 4 pm.

Tour kitchens in Hamilton, Wenham, Beverly Farms and Prides Crossing. Tickets are on sale now at the Wenham Museum. Also on the tour is the c. 1690 Claflin-Richards House hearth at the museum. Take a peek at how generations past used to gather with (or as we say “entertain
) family and friends. You are sure to return to your own hearth with inspired design ideas, along with an appreciation for the modern conveniences that we have available to make our lives easier – and more pleasant – in the kitchen.

Missing my “old” newly renovated kitchen: shiny granite,
stainless steel, Viking stove,
Fisher & Paykel dish drawer,
tumbled marble back splash, lighting that sparkles. *Sigh!*

My husband and I joke that our current kitchen would be a great “before” kitchen for this tour. No need to post scary pictures, but let’s just say we almost took a sledgehammer to it a couple of times over the summer (we would still have a grill to cook on, right?) Fortunately (or should I say hopefully?) it is moving its way up our very long remodeling to-do list (basically as a result of six years of wear and tear from our four rough & tumble/always hungry boys!).

While I would design it differently than we did for our last house (we are in a Colonial farmhouse now, and before owned a Cape Cod style home) there are some features that I miss: plenty of space to cook and entertain, tons of cabinets and counter space, plus everything was pretty, shiny and new. I will be posting images specific to kitchen remodels in the next few weeks as I begin to commit to making changes in our own space. File this post under “I can dream!”
