This is my Cape Cod Cottage kitchen…
This is where most of our dishes are kept and it’s also our kitchen counter… The shelving was there when we bought the cottage, but Victor rebuilt it new, adding beadboard and moldings. There was a cabinet below but Victor built a new one, in keeping with the cottage ambiance… We thought we would try having a wood counter, thinking we could put in granite or marble if it didn’t work out, but so far we like it!!! A small area to work on but we’ve hosted as much as 10 people for dinner!!
This is a handy serving piece, given to me by my good friend Lynda… It’s a 3 tier folding dessert server and when not in use it folds up and looks pretty displayed on the counter!
I think this is the one thing I love the most about our cottage…the kitchen sink…and Victor wanted to get rid of it when we remodeled!!!A vintage looking cottage clock fits in nicely with the theme of our kitchen…also, the spoons that are hanging on the rack are…measuring spoons, that I actually use!!More cabinets that Victor built in and added moldings…my oven range is a little outdated and not in a stylish way, but it works and we mostly grill outside! Another tiny counter which gets used alot for preparing meals!!This is a MacKenzie-Childs fish-dish that I use as a spoon rest…I love the colors and used it as inspiration for the colors of the kitchen!! These pink glass and brass knobs and pull are from Anthropologie…We don’t skimp with our cooking just because we’re in a tiny house with a tiny kitchen…our typical Sunday breakfast is soft boiled eggs, toast and berries, with our coffee, orange juice and vitamins!!Nothing like a Sunday morning sitting across from a Red Sox fan, reading the Cape Cod Times… We usually eat every meal outside, but today it was raining⛈Finally, there is something dreamy about a cottage kitchen window sill…Doing the dishes isn’t a chore when I can look out this window and see flowers from a well-appointed windowbox and the coming and going of people walking to and from the beach🐚
