“I think we started taking down the cabinets above the peninsula three hours after we moved in,” says Marcus Ford (@marcsford), referencing the kitchen renovation of his North Carolina home, creatively tackled in tandem with wife Victoria Ford (@prepfordwife). That peninsula is also no longer, because the couple’s priority involved opening up the small layout. Next up: adding cozy character. While the former kitchen was perfectly fine, it wasn’t very “them.” Enter beadboard, shiplap, functional collectibles, and stylish smart appliances (“you can preheat the oven from your phone!” says Victoria). Now that the space is complete, the Fords have moved on to a slightly less daunting construction project. Hint: It involves gingerbread. – Source
