It’s been a little while since I’ve done a My Favorite Room post, and I’ve been missing them, so I’m so glad today ends the streak of favorite room nothingness!
(For you who might not know about this series, it’s a fun thing I like to do with my blogger friends where they answer seven questions about their favorite room in their house and send me photos! Be sure to check out all the past My Favorite Room posts when you have a chance!) 🙂
Today, we get a little tour of the kitchen of my sweet friend Lauren who is the blogstress over at Four Bowies and is also the founder and queen baker of Meringue Macaron Kitchen, the most incredible French macaron business ever! She tells what makes this room special, a little about her baking, and when she most loves being in there!
What is your favorite room in your house?
My favorite room in my house is my kitchen… at least as of late. You know us women, we tend to change our minds a lot. But I’ve been spending lots of time in my kitchen lately and it has definitely become my happy place.
What about this room makes you love it so much?
I think the main reason I love this room is because of how it makes me feel. I think it’s beautiful, but more than that, I like to make things here. I like to use my hands and create something beautiful. I love my subway tile backsplash and my kitchen counter and the memories made in this kitchen and the many French macarons that leave this kitchen. There’s something dreamy about creating something with your hands and then handing it off to people for them to enjoy. I don’t ever want to lose the appreciation that someone wants to spend their hard earned money on my French macarons. That’s a big deal.
If you had to pick your favorite element in the room, what would it be?
My favorite element in this room is the fact that the lights dim and the subway tile backsplash! Oh, and my collection of dish towels. I’m a sucker for dish towels.
What’s your paint color?
My wall color is Analytical Gray and my trim/cabinet color is Alabaster… both by Sherwin Williams.
At what time of day do you most enjoy being in this room?
The time of day I love this room the most is either first thing in the morning to make coffee for my husband (when I then talk his head off while he is still waking up) or mid morning when I am baking non stop and feeling really accomplished and organized!
If you had to describe this room in 3 words, what would they be?
My kitchen in three words… fresh, cozy, clean.
Anything else you want us to know about your favorite room?!
I love my kitchen… not in spite of the messes I make there, but because of the messes that are made there… As a close family member says, we are doing life here! Safe to say a lot of life happens in my kitchen and for that I am thankful.
Thank you SO MUCH Lauren!! If y’all are ever in need of macarons, I hiiiiiighly suggest contacting Lauren! Those little cookies really are something special. Once you try some, please come back and tell me what you think! 🙂 And have a wonderful weekend!!!
