A Tour of My Updated Kitchen

  1. Linda Derrington says:

    Thanks for sharing your nice, new kitchen. Will you please share info on your microwave .. I am in search of a replacement and think yours might fit the need! TIA!!!

    • MaryLynne says:

      Your decorating ideas are always so helpful. Where do you keep your litter robot? Worth every dollar!! Also do you always eat in your dining room when you have guests now that you don’t have a table in the kitchen. What do you use for lighting in the area where the table was?

      • Beth Djalali says:

        The litter robot is in the laundry room. We forgot to add those photos to today’s post.
        Yes, I eat in the dining room or the kitchen island with a pullout shelf. Or my screen porch
        is a favorite place to dine.

    What a great Monday post- thank you for the tour.
    I love everything about it- outfit included.

    Can’t wait to see how your “heart of the home” gives a nod to holidays, season changes, rain, sunshine, just because days, etc.

    I totally love your kitchen!

  5. Deanna says:

    Love the updated kitchen! You and Kelly have such lovely kitchen space. Enjoy every moment in your “new digs”. Have a great week.

    I have been following you for several years and do enjoy it. I remember the kitchen with the table in the dining area and I liked that better than the island you now have. The island would look better in the kitchen and bring the lovely table back to the dining. Just a suggestion. But hey its your home and it is lovely.

    • Kathy says:

      I agree. I love the table much better too. It gives more seating as well. Love your color scheme of black, white and tan. Like the idea of putting the pretty island in the prep area of the kitchen, If room allows.

      • Beth Djalali says:

        Hi Kathy,

        There is a sliding shelf on the backside of the island. Pull it out, and there’s legroom galore. Slide it in, and there’s more space to move around the island. Genius! I shared in my post that no one ever sat at the table, so that’s 0.0 seats lost. Plus, the island is waaaayyyy too big to be placed in the prep center. That area is quite tight.
        Thanks for stopping by!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      Unfortunately, the prep are is quite tight, and the kitchen island wouldn’t fit in that space. But I love the butcher block island on wheels that can be moved out of the way if needed, especially when we shoot Fridays with Oscar.

    Awesome kitchen! Thanks for sharing ~

    Hi, Beth. Your kitchen is lovely. The colors are classic, and the open shelving seems to open up the space nicely. One thing about the stools near the island bother me, though. There is little room for people’s knees when they sit at the island, right? I keep thinking that the top of the island should be extended a little so that there would be room for feet and legs underneath it. Your thoughts?

    • Kathy says:

      My thoughts exactly about no room for your legs while sitting at your new counter. Plus you also lost two seats as not having the table. I do love your house, however.

    Hi Beth, I like your renovations very much. They are Stylish and Sophisticated. One question re your open shelving. What about dog and cat hair floating around and landing in your dishes, actually everywhere! (Been there!) Have you had your air ducts cleaned out? They get full of the stuff after a few years…(again, been there!).
