Including The Whole Family

8 Feb

My husband and I left Dallas on Super Bowl weekend and headed to South Texas to spend time with good friends. They recently moved into a new home that they spent months remodeling and the result is fabulous. They have three of the THE MOST adorable little boys you have ever seen and from the moment we walked into the house, there was no doubt where the heart of their home was. Their HUGE open kitchen is now three times the size of the original and the island is definitely the hub of the entire family space.

Modern white cabinets with stainless hardware,  subway tile backsplash in three tones of white,  slate floors, Deep Gray Ceasar Stone countertops and top of the line Jenn Air appliances create a fresh open space for the family of five to hang out.

The island is always being used for art projects. Emilio was drawing a picture for me here, and  a few of us chipped in to help with his Valentine shoe box project the following morning.

We made homemade pizzas one night…it was a mess but a blast and sooo yummy!

Directly across from the kitchen is the family room and casual dining area. The boys were always at the table playing games or having a snack.  My favorite thing about this part of the space is the boy’s art work. It’s nothing new to parents,  but using your children’s art can really personalize a space allow everyone in the family to have a part in accessorizing the home. I love how their mother framed these colorful kangaroo paintings, they brought in the pop of color that they love and the pieces are modern enough to compliment the feel of the home.

Having a cup of coffee from the Saeco coffee machine was a morning ritual. These coffee painting by the oldest boys were adorable and proudly hung in the area too. What a fabulous weekend, I’m wishing Caddo & Ivy made pieces like this while they were at doggy daycare..no such luck!
