Our unique plan was to remain in Chicago briefly for the summer season and undoubtedly(!) go away earlier than the winter. Well, as you see, that didn’t actually occur as a result of right here we’re. I’ll spare you the main points, however we spent about 7 months this previous 12 months leaping between airbnb’s, lodges, associates’ homes, and guardian’s homes (with a marble slab in our automobile’s trunk to proceed capturing recipes). After all of that, we’re SO glad to lastly be settling into our new house within the windy metropolis.
Here’s a sneak peek of the brand new kitchen! What I really like about it’s that it evokes the type of our Austin kitchen with out being a clone of it. I’ll at all times love subway tiles, white cupboards, and marble (though the brand new counter-tops are quartz that appear to be marble), however right here I really like the pop of the darkish blue and and the brushed brass particulars.

It’s additionally a comfy nook to have breakfast in, therefore its identify: the breakfast nook.
