After the whirlwind kitchen events of the last few weeks, you would think a post about impressive kitchen furnishings, decor pieces, and accents would be a bit redundant.  Turns out, the well-appointed kitchen remains the heart and hub of the home- a central gathering place serving a multitude of purposes.

Back in our flipping days, maison de Places In The Home was that place to holiday eat, drink, and be merry.  Realtors, designers, and home building trade folk love to get together for holiday cocktails with a twist of spirited networking.

Every single space, nook and cranny in the entire house was cleaned, styled, and set to holiday dazzle.  At the end of the evening, and with no complaints on my end, the majority of the house basically remained pre-party perfect.

Notice I say the majority of the house.

Based on the state of the kitchen, it was the happening holiday party place to be.

Gone are the days when the kitchen was merely a small space in the back of the house for strictly utilitarian purposes.  Impressive kitchen furnishings, decor pieces, and accents decidedly factor into today’s kitchen design as much as cabinetry, appliance, lighting, flooring, and placement choices do.

Many kitchens are combination spaces with a dining area or parlor adjacent to the main kitchen.  The last time my parents updated, my father suggested turning the small formal dining room adjacent to the kitchen into a parlor.  We used the parlor more than we ever used the formal dining room.

The space was intimate, cozy, and very inviting.  I’m reminded of it by the image below with its soft palette, French and Spanish Colonial influence, and exposed beams.

Very Louisiana.
