Kellys Home Tour - My Kitchen:

I am a big fan of Kellys Korner blog (the link is on the side). I think she is amazing! She is hosting a 'Show us where you live' home tour every Friday. I thought it would be fun to participate. Welcome to my kitchen:

Here is the view looking in from a hallway. My kitchen is combined with my eating area and what we call in the south...a keeping room. My kids spend lots of time in the keeping room! They lounge on the couch and watch tv, play games, etc! :)

Another view from one side. My favorite thing about my kitchen is the granite countertops. I have had every type of counter surface you can imagine and these are my favorites! :) I love the Method granite cleaner from Target. It smells good and makes the granite shiny!

Better view of eating area and keeping room! Another favorite thing of mine is my bamboo blinds. I love them. I have had them in my last 3 houses. They are relatively inexpensive, but really make a room look pretty ( well I think they do)! ;)

Other side of kitchen. I really like my small stone tiles. They are different colors and I like that! We didn't build our home, but I was really pleased with the choices that the builder made.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to drool all over your counters:) They are absolutely gorgeous! I love the openess of your kitchen to the "keeping room". I have never heard that term before but I love that layout!

Thank you for sharing!

Your kitchen is gorgeous! That is very similar to what my dream kitchen would look like. Thanks for the comment on my blog. We are renting right now and house hunting. I would love to be able to customize a kitchen when we find a house :)

I love your style. Where do you get your bamboo shades? I want to put them in a few rooms. I love the way they look and the texture they add to a room. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Can't wait to see some of your other rooms.

Super ckitchen! I'm in the process of getting new counters and back splash... and am suddenly in LOVE with my kitchen! Oh and another friend recommended the Method cleaner for granite counters, so I guess I'll go buy some this week.
