French kitchen??

I am of course not done with the kitchen. It´s kind of too clean, it need to be more shabby!!
I made the niche around the window, but I have to make it look like it´s belong to the original wall, and I don´t have a sink that fits the space. Okay...I need to make one... or  buy???? I don´t know yet, but it will probably take some time to decide, and get it done!
So enjoy what I have done so far;
The cute wall cabinet is made by Evelyne Fontaine at; /

I have made the picture extra big so the wonderful food from KIVA are more visible. She made the nectarines, the fish pai, tomatoes and the mushrooms!!! The food looks just great!

I´v got the nice wine bottle from Hanneke from Holland, she also sent with them a cute wine opener!
The rolling pin and the items hanging by the stove are purchased at  the Italian fair;

Some of the food items on the shelf are purchased at the same italian fair, the jars are from Country Treasures at; The Kensington Dollhouse fair

Notice the cute mouse on the toaster made by David Ward!
But does the kitchen look French at all? I know, I should have used tiles...but I made it several years ago now...and I did not know so much back then. But it´s a nice floor in it self!

Oh I want to move in right away! So many wonderful details, the mouse on the toaster is so cutely funny. Do you have contact details for Hanneke, I'd like to purchase some wine bottles. Also, where did you get those fabulous green chairs?

Det är ett jättefint kök och jag
blev alldeles förtjust framför allt i fönsternischen och strukturen på väggen där! Så
läckert - och vinflaskan i korgen
och allt det andra också!

I love your work as usual. A very cosy room, you feel like sitting down at the table, or to look whats behind the inviting doors...

Atticbabys sa...

I am just blown away at how you can make everything in such a small scale look so authentic! I too want to move right in!

Irene sa...

It certainly looks very French to me! I love the finish on the walls and the colour of the little chairs.

cockerina sa...

Sinnove hello!
first of all thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, I have done so much pleasure!
with regard to the kitchen I must admit that it is very beautiful! I really like how you have held out the stucco on the walls and I prefer it to the usual tiles, which makes cooking very rustic and welcoming, and indeed seems more Italian cuisine, with all the nice things on display! know that in Italy you eat much better than in France? Come and do the holidays here and you'll see! ah ah!
everything is nicely presented, but the piece that I like most is the door, very very nice!

miniacollection sa...

It certainly has a French look, it is just the kind of kitchen I love. The arch around the window is a wonderful idea. I like the colour and all the details. You are right that a tiled floor would be nice, but your floor is nice too. Great work !

Rosanna: The green chairs are from "The Dollhouse Emporium", I painted them green!

Where did you get the gorgeous stove?

Lena sa...

Helt fantastiskt kök som du skapat!
Det känns väldigt franskt tycker jag, med alla fina detaljer. Jag bara älskar glasburkarna med inlagda grönsakerna, så vinflaskan...det ser verkligen riktigt ut.
Väggen tycker jag är jättefin, med den strukturen.

Hälsningar Lena!
