Yes, I know I didn’t post yesterday, and all is well here…. I am starting a new posting schedule where I will be blogging Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and I will continue with my “It’s Eclectic” Series on Thursdays when I have guests. I am doing this for one major reason…. to focus on making my content and photos all AWESOME. I am hoping to make the blog better than it is and need more time to do so.
Now that that is out of the way, thank you so much for all of your feedback and comments Monday on Angelique’s beautiful wallpapered dining room. I knew I could not leave you with just that one room, so I am going to continue the tour of her home today with the kitchen and family room.
The family room has a very relaxed but chic vibe, full of whites, neutrals, black, metals, and natural touches such as jute, leather, hide, and stones. It’s where this family of five cozies up to watch movies together, and where Angelique likes to relax to peruse her collection of design magazines.

Angelique has an eye for lighting and each room in her home contains a fabulous chandelier. Family photos grace many of the walls in this home, and recount the story of the love that fills it.
The black vintage piece near sofa table hides crayons, markers, scissors and more of the girls’ art supplies. It also stores a collection of design books and meaningful pieces, like the “H” that was a Christmas gift from her business partner, Saule.
And one more shot of this room gives you a peek into the living room, which will be shared in the next post about this home. I am such a tease! What did I tell you about Angelique’s eye for lighting?
Isn’t that family room just the perfect place to relax and catch up with friends over tea?
Now let’s head into the kitchen, which was redone at some point in the 60’s if I remember correctly from what Dan, Angelique’s husband, told me. They painted the existing cabinets and replaced the countertops with a gorgeous black granite.
The kitchen seamlessly blends modern and vintage once again. You may recognize those chairs as the once coral chairs of my dining room. I gave them to Angelique and she updated them with white paint, new white seats, and shiny brass trim.
The table is flanked by white tulip chairs, which are, by the way, so comfortable.
The window placement allows perfectly for three photos on the wall, one of each little girl. Fresh sunflowers add the perfect pop of cheerful color.
How amazing is this oversized vintage piece of art? I am in love! It sits atop a vintage buffet that Angelique painted white, with hardware updated in gold.
The kitchen also features a built in desk, where we see another touch of yellow in the art. The fabulous chinoiserie chair makes an elegant statement in gold, black, and white.
The artwork above states, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” This home clearly belongs to highly intelligent people, who are full of fun and personality! I can’t wait to show you more!
Until then, have an fabulous Wednesday! Go out and be awesome!
