"Petite cuisine agrandit la maison"

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

As you already know from reading my post entitled “The Moniker”, I have forever been the lover of scripted walls. One of our remodel projects here at the farmhouse included removing a wall between the kitchen and living room to make an open floor plan. This required the use of a support beam and two columns to redistribute the weight of the roof in order to keep the ceiling from falling. For the cosmetic purpose of hiding the support beam, we covered it with a 6” strip of wall to span that opening. And, like the wooden valance above the kitchen sink, that area was begging to be scripted.

I had no idea what wording I wanted to use until I researched popular French quotes and found this one: “Petite cuisine agrandit la masion” which loosely translated means “A small kitchen makes a large home”. Isn’t that SO French?

And, it just fits the sentiments of all us here at Campagne Maison. Our cottage kitchen is small but never too small for family and friends, enjoying good food, having a good time, and making good memories. Now, isn’t that what life is really all about?

Please leave a comment if you stopped by the farmhouse for a visit today and please come again. We love having company.

Au revoir,
