    Thank you for more great ideas. We’ll be purchasing a refrigerator soon so this is very helpful.

  3. Great tips! Let me first say that you have a gorgeous kitchen. I’m sure that preparing a meal in this wonderful oasis is one very enjoyable experience. I am head over hills with everything vintage, so I love every single vintage piece in there. The way you find a practical purpose for those details is brilliant. I’ll make sure to ‘steal’ some of your tricks when styling my kitchen these days. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Absolutely amazing and beautiful as always

  5. Your home is stunning! Curious the water pitcher that has the silver leaves on the handle where did you buy that it is beautiful!

    1. Thank you so much!! The pitcher is from Vagabond House. They have gorgeous stuff! I post a lot of from them… 🙂

  6. We have just discovered this type of refrigerator and have seen similar types in other brands. Thank you for the info. Your kitchen is great, and your info very helpful!

    1. Thank you so much!! And yes, the fridge is great in so many ways. I’m not super into gadgets, but it has just enough conveniences to be really useful and the storage space is perfect for our needs!

  7. I couldn’t agree more regarding the importance of a clean and organized fridge. I, too, clean out my fridge/freezer every week. It does’t take very long because nothing builds up. I giggled at the thought of foil-wrapped plates piled high. My biggest issue is when there are multiple bottles/containers of the same food item open at once (talk about a waste of money and space).

    Really like the mini chandeliers. Are they vintage? Happy fall days, Lory!

    1. Haha, so fun to find a like minded person out there!! No, those chandies are new… 🙂 The larger one in the breakfast room is vintage.

  9. Thank you so much for the post and pics of your kitchen. I have been trying to decide on paint color for the kitchen and going all white. I think the pics of your kitchen have definitely pushed me in the all white direction. So clean and bright! Have also been wanting to replace wood cabinet fronts with some glass. Just need to find someone to tackle the routing of the doors.

  10. We have the exact same fridge and the inside arrangement is nearly identical! We bought the fridge because the style was new and we thought it was lovely. I’m curious if yours has stood up well because I’m rather disappointed with ours. Like you, it’s just my husband and myself so there’s no abuse but the front control panel had cracked and the finish has worn off after 3 years.
    I’m sorry to say that I don’t have the exact same chandeliers!! When we moved to our current home I was very self conscious about my decorating style since I came from a more formal colonial but felt I needed a more rustic approach to this house on the lake. After 3 years I realize that it is not my style. Thanks to you and a few other blogs, I got over trying to figure out what the house “should” look like and realize that the country French aesthetic fits quite nicely here. I just love Country French Fridays!
