three things

It's been a few years since Sharon Mimrans living room was featured in Canadian House and Home- but even though it's been years, I continue to be inspired by it over and over. It's something about the mix.



This kitchen, designed by Linda Reeves and her team for a hospital lottery home has baskets as cabinetry.. have to say I love that-

and what are your thoughts about a table in place of an island? I do like the feel of this kitchen-

Divine. I think I say that a lot when I visit your blog! Love the colour scheme of all three, the art in the top and the baskets in the second.

I don't mind the table instead of an island but I think the chairs might get in the way?

I love Sharon's living room and how she just rearranged everything to block off the front door - she has such beautiful furniture.
And that lottery kitchen is gorgeous - love the dark grey cabinetry with the baskets :)

great spaces. Love the idea of a dining table in place of an island. It's on my one day list.

I love the chairs and ottoman in the first photo so much, I can't stop looking at them!

i love the idea of having a table in place of an island, although if you needed the extra prep space it sure would be inconvenient to bend down to use the table!

So much to adore. Love the zebra without it being represented by a rug. I love the baskets as storage in the kitchen & as for the table in place of an island, fabulous. I have actually wanted to do that for a few years now. I would love to sit & chop & chat smack dab in my kitchen. Great post Sarah. Hope you have a fun week!

i love a table in a kitchen, it feels sort of euro to me.

I like these kitchen ideas. My home was built in 1910 and I'm always on the lookout for period appropriate solutions. Open shelves, baskets, and tables instead of islands are all in my idea folder! Thanks!

Great Spaces....I love the baskets for drawers in the kitchen as well, and I can't get enough of large tables in the center of kitchens. So cozy!

I adore the living room and that zebra ottoman - I covet...
