Designing Our French Inspired Kitchen and Bath: The Kohler Store

Image
Greetings everyone!  Things have been progressing behind the scenes as we continue to design our French inspired home.  As you might have already noticed; we have been on a short break from blog posting. We have been working our way through some unforeseen design obstacles.  The bidding process has again resumed and we too will now pick up our blog postings right where we left off.

Today we want to share a few photographs from a recent trip to The Kohler Store in Glenview, Illinois just outside of Chicago.  For those of you interested in visiting, you can find the Kohler Store at:

The Kohler Store (Chicago Area Locations)
1180 N. Milwaukee Avenue
Glenview, IL 60025

For your added shopping pleasure, you can also visit the Abt showroom right next door!  See our trip to the Abt showroom, home to all appliances and electronics.

French Inspired Patio Table: Which is your Favorite?

Greetings everyone!

Today is yet another cold day here in Indiana.  I believe it made it up to a whopping 39 degrees today..burrrrr.  After the holidays we are pretty well much over the cold and snow.  Yes I know winter has only started, but there is nothing wrong with also starting the countdown to spring!

Looking out over the snow covered patio gets us thinking about warm summer evenings sitting outside and enjoying fresh produce from the garden.  Today's inspirational images remind us that warmer times are just around the corner. 

The new house will have two separate outdoor seating areas just perfect for one of these French inspired patio tables.  Can you see yourself enjoying a bottle of wine at one of these tables with your family and friends?  On second thought, I could really enjoy a bottle of wine anywhere!

Choice 1 We like how these smaller bistro style tables were pushed together to form one larger table.  The space is enhanced by the French blue shutters and red flowers, b…

This past weekend was just made for a road trip.  We drove up to Chicago and stayed with some friends who live downtown.  I don't think we could have asked for better weather. We always enjoy walking up and down Rush Street.  FYI, there is an amazing gelato stand in Mariano Park near all the action.

One of this weekends highlights was searching for French inspired furniture and decor.  We hit the jackpot!  Near the Wicker Park neighborhood, we came across an amazing warehouse that we had driven by at least 50 times and never noticed.  The inside is a treasure chest of French style furniture, French decor, art, you name it.  We decided we would share some of those images today.  If there is something you see let us know and we'll share the store with you, unless of course it's something we plan to go back and buy!

These faux cakes look just as good as the real thing.  There were cake stands all over the place!

Love the French style bookcase and topiary pots with lamps to match…
