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)

Happy Sunday afternoon!

We are back following a short break!  We have missed posting but in our time away we have accumulated some great information and photographs to share with you in future posts.

Today kicks off a series of posts dedicated to the design of our French inspired kitchen. We have shared a few of our appliance choices in a prior post which you can still view here:

Our French Inspired Kitchen: Selecting a Range

In one of our first posts we shared how we found our architect, Jack Arnold.  It was his kitchen that captured our attention from the very first time we viewed it reading a fellow bloggers post.  Many of you have seen this photograph before, but we want to show it once again just to set the stage for the design inspiration of our kitchen.

One of the problems we keep running into as we design our home is actually being able to view any quality materials before we purchase them.  For those of you living in or around larger cities; consider yourselves lucky!  In Indiana …

Choosing A French Home Design: Jack Arnold Kitchen

A few years ago my wife and I decided that we would begin to plan the house of our dreams.

Has anyone ever had difficulty designing or identifying the home they want to build?I think for about a year and a half we found plans that were good, but nothing that ever made us say “THAT is THE one”.

One day, we were searching for kitchen designs on Google images (a great resource). I have always wanted our stove to look like it was part of an old fireplace. I find the design reminiscent of cooking fireplaces that were once the staple of every kitchen.

After a great deal of searching, we found “THE” kitchen that made us stop in our tracks.It was a design created by Jack Arnold, the renowned architect known for his European influenced designs.Right in front of us was exactly what we were looking for in a kitchen.The cabinets themselves also appear to be designed by Jack Arnold for Bentwood Kitchens.Check out both sites for more information.  What do you think of the inspiration kitchen??


I love…
