Vintage Kitchen Envy

Teresa's Cottage Kitchen
This is Teresa's cottage kitchen of the blog
She's been busy restoring a 1920's era cottage.
This was the before...
I love that she kept the original cabinets and then just made everything else much better.
She retained the vintage character.
I want this kitchen.
I love a kitchen shaped like this.
A square room with the cabinets forming a U.
My kitchen is a galley kitchen...perfectly serviceable but I'd much prefer this.
This is the breakfast nook area of the kitchen.
That built in is darling.
She just recently painted these chairs. I adore the color.
The view from the dining room into the kitchen.
She painted this buffet too.
Check out the cute drawer pulls covered in shells that compliment the shell framed mirror.
This cottage feels like living in a cloud.
My whole love affair with Teresa's cottage began when I saw photos of her bathroom.
This is one of two vintage tile bathrooms in the home.
Teresa is a styling genius.
The way she styled this bathroom makes this bathroom so fresh and inviting.
Go to Teresa's blog to see lots more photos of her home by clicking on her blog logo below.

I know its not good to be jealous....but I can't help be a little envious of her precious cottage.

Yes, fabulous. Love that sky blue color that seems to walk you through the house. The chair in the bathroom is great, it's a modern pop but with a vintage feel, perfect.
