A Closer Look


I love to look at Lonny, but honestly, not many of the homes have much practical inspiration for me. Ashley Putman's Houston home was definitely an exception. It doesn't look overly-designed, but is filled with personal style that's magically kid-friendly -- the perfect stylish family home. Which is why I nearly fell out of my chair when I spotted again on Holly Mathis. It was featured in a Houston holiday home tour last season, and local blogger Lauren offered a closer look. There are some new spaces, like a great hallway gallery wall and an adorable nursery, but it's the kitchen I keep coming back to (no surprise there).

I agree... there is nothing like a beautiful, functional and ATTAINABLE space! This kitchen is definitely all of those things... I LOVE the shelves flanking the stove-- gorgeous!

Wow! That kitchen rocks! It looks fatastically casual but with great style. Love the bank of windows and the Eames chairs paired with the farmhouse table.

I can totally see myself in that kitchen. I love the open shelving, the rustic table, and the light fixture. Good find!

Thanks for the link! I actually gasped when I entered the kitchen. So much better in person than I could have imagined. Glad you've found some inspiration!

I have always loved big kitchens. Now that I have had a very small kitchen, when I see large ones, I immediately think of all the walking back and forth in such a large room.
This is the first large kitchen that I have seen in a long while that makes me want a big room again :)
I love everything about this kitchen. Those windows, the shelves, the table.
I am going to copy this and keep it for my inspiration book , there is definitely another new home/kitchen in my future :)
