Fraîche Place of business Excursion – Fraiche Dwelling


Within you’ll to find all of the main points of our Fraîche Place of business! I created a lovely area for myself and the group with a distinct contact of Parisian taste. Let me be your information! Seize a cup of tea, sit down again, and benefit from the Fraîche Place of business Excursion.

Charles and I if truth be told name the place of job “Paris” (France is one among my favorite puts in the entire global) and now I’ve my very own little slice of France subsequent door to my house. Sure, we meet for espresso in “Paris” maximum mornings!

I all the time dreamed of getting my own area for Group Fraîche. An area to name our very personal to be ingenious and dream large. A large number of love (plus one extraordinarily at hand husband) and elbow grease went into this addition, and I couldn’t be happier to in the end percentage the main points with you.

Paint Color

I made up our minds to move with two of my favorite Benjamin Moore paint colors on this kitchen. BM Merely White (with an eggshell end) at the partitions and BM Vintage Grey for the cabinetry. One, as a result of I want to stay the distance gentle and ethereal for images. Two, as a result of I’m tremendous aware of those colors and know I will be able to love them for a very long time! They’re classics. If you want lend a hand selecting the “highest” white head to my weblog right here with all my go-to’s.

Kitchen Cupboards

Like I stated above, I went with surprising Vintage Grey cupboards from my expensive pals at Norelco. I went with a conventional shaker profile entire with a couple of glass doorways to show off some dinnerware, a customized knife drawer, drawer organizers, or even a couple of open cabinets. Norelco additionally designed our house kitchen, and I’m simply as inspired this time as I used to be remaining time. I couldn’t suggest them extra, they’re superb!

Brass {Hardware}

My love for brass runs lovely deep. I knew I sought after so as to add touches of brass to present it an vintage, Eu really feel. I went with probably the most PERFECT Emtek {hardware} (those 4″ cup pulls, those knobs and those cupboard latches) in a cultured brass, understanding it’ll patina over the years.

I made up our minds to take my open cabinets to some other stage with those brass railings from Paxton {Hardware} for a I like it such a lot and works so smartly for storing lovely glassware. This little nook is one among my favourites.

Counter tops

The true megastar of the display on this complete kitchen area are the island and counter tops via Cosentino. I selected quartz for various causes, however most commonly love how sturdy it’s: and BEAUTIFUL! I selected the similar end and trend as our house, I liked it such a lot: Silestone’s Statuario. It has the very best veining, harking back to Carrera marble. We had it put in via Absolut Granite in Kelowna, they usually had been in reality superb. They had been skilled, so pleasant (customer support is massive to me), and their paintings used to be on-point.

The scale of our place of job kitchen island are 9.7′ x 4.3′ to be precise, and are 36″ top (usual peak). I LOVE those dimensions: I might do that once more in a heartbeat. For this area we selected to depart the island as a piece area most effective (no sink or home equipment), and it’s actually a dream for the reason that there are typically 4 people running on it at one time!

Kitchen Home equipment

I went with all Fisher & Paykel home equipment within the area from Coast Home equipment right here in Kelowna (refrigerator, range, dishwasher, espresso device), identical as in my house. An 8-burner gasoline vary with twin stoves to house our large circle of relatives gatherings and A LOT of cooking manufacturing with my group. I additionally actually like that it doesn’t have virtual controls (love the normal dials). The double refrigerator is built-in (panels from the fabulous Norelco, once more), identical is going for the dishwasher. The Spindle Equipment Pulls are from Emtek.

I made up our minds not to set up a pot filler on this kitchen (I’ve one in my space) and I haven’t neglected it as soon as!

Espresso System

We take espresso very severely at Group Fraîche! However in all honesty, this equipment will get extra mileage than I might have ever dreamed! Most commonly via Charles, sneaking as much as the place of job for quiet time within the mornings. I believe he under-estimated how a lot he would for my part revel in my place of job haha! The espresso device is from Fisher and Paykel too. We adore espresso such a lot we even made an artwork print out of it!

Kitchen Lights

It’s onerous to inform from photos, however this area is very large in peak! With tall vaulted ceilings, I knew I had to scale up the lights to stability out the distance above the island. Input: The Holborn Lantern. Gorgeous lights makes all of the distinction.

This 4 candle gentle has intricate steel detailing, together with tapered facets and a distressed vintage white end. I got rid of the glass and adore how it seems: no use for consistent cleansing and no glare after I use this area for images.

I tied in additional of the brass detailing I really like thru those double wall sconces with off-white sun shades. Best, easy magnificence!

Kitchen Sink

This area sees a lot and plenty of dishes, so the sink needed to be each gorgeous and useful. I went with a big double farmhouse sink at an ideal worth from Wayfair (all the time cross double if you’ll be able to!), however the actual display stopper on this area is the tap! It’s from De Vol and is completely harking back to antique French faucets with a beautiful patina. I’m in love.


I were given my ground from Dannburg right here in Kelowna: I went to college with the landlord Scott. I knew I sought after this area very gentle and brilliant, so went with a gentle wooden with a white wash. It’s lighter than what I’ve in my space, and it actually makes a distinction in lightning up this large area. It’s the very best canvas for including in different layers of woods and textures thru furnishings. Tremendous pleased with my selection right here! I went with Undying Flooring Oak Tribune Bay Wirebrushed Oak, Pacific Coast Knotty Taste.


I selected a shiny white subway tile from Olympia Tile with some texture to it with a grout color referred to as “Bleached Wooden” that compliments it actually well. I used to be going to move for herbal stone, however with ALL the cooking we do, I didn’t assume that used to be a sensible selection. My splatters on the range since have showed I made a sensible selection. We bought our tile at Small’s Tile & Floor in Kelowna and would suggest them.

Window Coverings

I knew I sought after one thing romantic and Eu-inspired to convey heat to the distance. Like all of the home windows in my primary house (see right here), I went with customized coverings from Lindsay at Q Design. She is the most efficient, in reality. For the eating/assembly house, I selected a luxe 100% Silk in White with 6″ 2 fold pleats with cotton lining and interlining. It immediately reworked the eating portion of the place of job, and have compatibility completely with my Parisian theme. It strikes a chord in my memory of one thing from Versailles!

For the kitchen and table integrated house, I went with linen roman sun shades in color “Cotton.” The easiest creamy white! You’ll use code TORISWATCH10 for 10 unfastened swatches for your self with and code TORI10 FOR 10% off your subsequent acquire.

P.S. Annually she has an improbable Black Friday sale! Subscribe right here so that you don’t omit it.

For the doorway to the place of job, we did a Valance in Murray Stripe in Macadamia, within fastened with massive folds and cotton lining. It provides the very best je ne sais quoi to our little access. To look extra of my Q Design customized window coverings, head right here.

Customized Table Constructed-Ins

We wanted right kind paintings stations for my rising group, so my expensive pals at Norelco put in a customized integrated that matches 3 other folks, plus a lot of garage. We matched the cabinetry from the kitchen (Vintage Grey) and the similar brass {hardware} as all over. Now, who wouldn’t need to paintings right here?!


To mention we’ve numerous props and kitchen devices, can be an enormous understatement. When development this area we made positive so as to add a small pantry to permit for added a lot wanted garage. Isn’t it darling? I will if truth be told lock myself in there after I want just a little mommy ruin. TOTALLY KIDDING!
