Happy Fall Monday!  The temps took a dive this weekend, boots and cashmere sweaters have made their way back to my closet ... I am entering this cool zone very skeptically!  Praying for a little less Winter than we had last year!

Back to #madforplaid ... When our family first moved into #ProjectDownsize, now almost 2 years ago! We tackled our little kitchen first.  It's where we spend the majority of our time ... Small enough for Don and I to be comfortable when it's just the two of us and big enough to pile our family of six plus friends in on a special occasion!

The "banquette" was a formal sofa in our previous home and the two dining chairs were from my dining table growing up, loved what a coat of black paint could do for them!

The GP&J Baker Chinoiserie linen brought in another element to help keep the plaid from feeling too "country" for me.

I am so excited to share that this Fall's edition of New England Fine Living featured our #madforplaid kitchen!  

I am working on our laundry room to tie in the colors of the kitchen ... our Cape house is what my Grandmother referred to as a "shotgun" house ... yep you could shoot a shotgun through the front door and it would go straight through the house out the back door!  And that my friends is where my laundry room ... more like a "laundry passthrough" is stationed.  I've been working on this for awhile so putting on the finishing touches now and will keep you updated!
