I copied this from my previous blog. It’s last year’s pictures from the Holiday Tour but it is just about exactly how I decorated the kitchen again this year so I thought I would share in sort of a “Throwback Thursday” sort of way!
|The name Idlehour came from the book A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles.|
|“Lola” our cow friend, the only cow you’ll find in our kitchen as we maintain a plant based life style.|
|It was a snowy day when I took these photos…it’s a great view of the mountains from this window I really wish I could have captured it!|
|I have a life long habit of wanting to fill in empty spaces but I’ve been trying to adopt a life of simplicity and that’s the look I was going for when decorating this kitchen.|
|My favorite little St. Nick purchased in Stuttgart, Germany when we were stationed there. He fills my heart with happy memories every year when I unwrap him!|
|One of our three pups, Beatrice! My daughter found her on the highway two years ago and, despite my attempts to find her a home, she found her home with us. |
And my new Ruggable (Kamran in Coral) I am a big fan of both the rug and the dog!
|The downstairs is mostly all shiplap painted White Dove. It was a new build but we were lucky to find!|
|Foccacia from a local bakery, best I’ve ever had and I lived in Italy for four years!|
|Christmas Crunch…melt a bag of white chocolate chips, fold melted chocolate into 1 1/2 cups of each of these ingredients and spread on wax paper to cool.|
