I love my kitchen, but I have been eager to make some changes.

When we bought our home four years ago, I immediately fell in love with the kitchen.  The previous owners updated it shortly before we bought it, so it was in great condition.

We have cream color custom cabinetry that I love in contrast with the countertops.  Being a smaller kitchen, the lighter cabinetry makes the kitchen feel larger.  If you have ever watched any of my cooking videos, you have had a chance to get a peek inside my kitchen.

We bought our home for the beautiful, tranquil setting.  I’ll admit, I have had some moments that I just wanted to pack up and buy a new home so I could enjoy some modern updates, but the task of selling and buying a new home is overwhelming.

Lately, Mr. Mother Thyme and I have been going around the house doing some updates.  We recently repainted our family room to include painting all the trim white.  

What a difference a few coats of paint makes!

Now we are anxious to start the next room…the kitchen!

My design style is simple chic.  Having young children, we want our home to be light, inviting and most importantly family friendly.  If you want to make updates to your kitchen like me, it doesn’t take a demolition to make it fresh and new.  With new LG Studio appliances, canisters, updated rugs, new lighting, new art on the walls and the addition of fresh flowers, easy changes can make a world of difference in your kitchen!
