Bistro Style Kitchen with Breakfast Nook

As we all know, the kitchen is always the heart of the home. This is where we cook, eat and spend most of our time as a family, and no matter how nice other rooms of the house might look, you and every guest always ends up in the kitchen.  That’s why it doesn’t surprise me to see kitchens designed with family life and entertaining in mind, where its design easily welcomes any situation, from a busy afternoon with the kids doing their homework on the island while snacking on a bowl of cereal to friends wearing their high heels and savoring a glass of wine after a dinner party.

Designed by Martha O’Hara Interiors, this bistro style kitchen feels fresh and timeless. A large island with butcher’s block countertop offers plenty of workspace and warmth against the kitchen cabinets painted in Benjamin Moore OC-17 White Dove.

And like with most of bistro kitchens, the designer couldn’t forget to add a charming breakfast nook. This one even comes with a cute pass-through window!

Take a minute to look at this inspiring kitchen and make sure to take note of paint color, lighting, wallpaper, backsplash tiles and other important kitchen sources. I hope you have a great time here!

  Seeing a beautiful kitchen is always fun, isn’t it? I hope you liked this one!

Is anyone watching the FIFA Women’s World Cup that’s happening in Canada right now? I am beyond excited today because we’re going on a trip to watch Brazil play against Costa Rica. But that’s not all, my friends… We met the Brazilian coach another day and it turns out that we have a lot in common. In fact, he used to live in the same city where I am from in Brazil. We talked for a long time, together with my kids and husband and, since my daughter plays soccer and dreams to be a professional player, he kindly invited us to watch the Brazil team practicing. Isn’t that amazing?

The kids, my husband and I had one of the most amazing moments of our lives. Soccer is more than a passion for any Brazilian and I grew up watching soccer on TV every Sunday and played all the time with my grandfather. Seeing the Brazilian players right there, in front of me was surreal.

Everyone, from the coach, staff to the players were incredibly welcoming. We talked many times and the kids even played soccer. What else? Being a huge fan of Marta (Marta Vieira da Silva), the most popular female Brazilian soccer player, my daughter had the chance to meet and talk to her, which was registered by a Brazilian journalist and my daughter’s story was on a sport news website. Pretty cool, right?

If you knew me, you would know that I don’t care about idols, media, famous people. I can admire many of them but I wouldn’t wait for an autograph. I am a bit uncomfortable asking and even a little shy. But this means a lot to me because I could see how this experience positively influenced my daughter. She is so into sports and has big dreams. Spending time with the Women’s Brazilian Soccer Team was a huge inspiration for her. You dream, you believe, you work really hard on your goals and they can become your reality. She understood and could experience that yesterday.

I couldn’t be more grateful to the coach, Vadao. Without his tender heart and simplicity, all of this would never be possible.

Today Brazil is playing and like I said to the coach, I feel they deserve to win because people like that, with a real heart, with so much care for others, these are the people that truly deserve to be winners. I saw how hard the girls and all the staff work, but most of all, I could see that they are kind to each other and anyone who comes to them and I sincerely hope that their dream also come true.

What a day!!!

Marta, Brazilian Soccer. #Brazil #Marta #FIFA #FIFA2015

Here’s my daughter getting a hug from Marta. Can you see how happy I am for her? My 3 y/o is just confused… why are they hugging? :)

By the way, I took a picture with Marta also and this woman is just muscles! I never touched anyone so fit in my entire life! LOL I thought about this today when I was working out. What an inspiration! :)

Brazil FIFA Women's World Cup practicing for the next game.

All of us watching the Brazil national team practicing for their next game. S-U-R-R-E-A-L!

I share so much about my life with you guys and I couldn’t leave this behind. :)

Talk to you tomorrow. Enjoy your day, be safe and don’t forget to have fun!
