{my dream home would have to have: the hodge:podge edition}

Today I am excited to have my dear friend Barbara of the fab blog Hodge:Podge to share her dream home must have with us. Barbara hosts a wonderful series called 'So Canadian, eh?' where she interviews talented Candian designers and bloggers, take a peek at her latest installment with Christiane Lemieux of DwellStudio! So, without further ado ...



Thanks so much Nancy for letting me share with your readers what I pine  dream about!
My dream home would have to have ...  A gorgeous unfitted kitchen, with lots of black!

My all time favourite space and dream kitchen is the one designed by my favourite Canadian designer, Tommy Smythe {known as the witty co-host alongside Sarah Richardson}. I love everything in that kitchen from the herringbone patterned floors, black window frames, amazing carriage light, rustic farmhouse style table, marble backsplash to the Shaker style cabinetry with black on the bottom and white on the uppers.

In the meantime while I dream ... I live with honey oak cabinets stuck in the 90’s. Ugh.

Barbara, you are a girl after my own heart! This kitchen is already sitting in my inspiration files, I just adore it! Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this stunning space, I'd bet all my money that everyone out there fully agrees with you!!

Yup. This is one of the best kitchens ever. I have been working on my husband since we moved here to agree to "paint the wood!" Girl after my own heart, Barbara...

I have looked at those herringbone floors for quite sometime.
I need a house to put them in.
Oh the joys of being a renter.


Thanks so much Nancy and Barbara.

I'm with Barbara, I love love that kitchen... every time I see black windows or cabinets, I smile- so fabulous!!!

Barbara@HausDesign said...

From one Barbara to another - I love it. It's also great because even if our ownn kitchens aren't ideal there are many tricks here to steal - the lantern, the painting of the cabinets two colors top/bottom, painting the insides of the woodwork black to make it more substantial, etc...such a great space and such a fun series - I look forward to seeing more!

Barbara, I've loved this kitchen since the first time I saw it! The herringbone floors, the stainless and marble counters, the black doors and windows. Stunning!

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

Barb, I'm shocked to hear that you would like black in your kitchen:) It is a stunning kitchen. I love it.

Kelly @ JAX does design said...

Yep, I agree :-) I especially love the black doors & windows and the big lantern light fixture. Also really love the look of the black lowers cabinets and white uppers.

Wendy said...

Great kitchen! I love the floors, the black doors and the lighting... great pick!

Rosa @ Flutter Flutter said...

Those black windows are amazing. And herringbone... well, I love it anywhere!! Nice pick Barbara. Great feature idea Nancy!

The Vintique Object said...

Uh-huh, I knew I liked your style! I have this one in my Room Love tab. Probably one of my top five favorite kitchens. It's the black French doors that get me every time. You are a woman of fantastic taste!

Love that kitchen and have been dreaming of it since I first saw it floating around. It is just perfect in every way.

Lisa said...

Beautiful! And, I also have this kitchen in my inspiration file. I love the classic black and white feel of it. It is ageless and will look great for many, many years!

Rambling Renovators said...

Great pick, Barbara! Tommy was doing two tone cabinetry and black casings way before anyone else and the look still holds up. Love those herringbone floors.

Sarah Klassen said...

Wonderful! I just adore all of the marble most especially — so classic and elegant in style...

Splendid Willow said...

Barbara what a place! I love so many of the details. (The floors, the windows, the over-sized lantern, the backsplash and the artichokes as decoration!). This is also going straight to my inspiration file.

Warm hugs to you both - stylish Canadian gals!

ox, Mon
