We have been long-time admirers of Diana's pink kitchen, so we are very excited to have her sharing this lovely space today!
"We live in an older historical home, from 1907! Our old dining room was the master bedroom, and our pantry was the closet. The cabinets were added in the 90's, and we've kept them but upgraded the paint, the backsplash tile, the counters and the flooring. We wanted to keep the historical value of the house without compromising the foundation."
"I love our old stove. It came with the house, and it was rusted, leaked gas, and unusable. But the owners didn't want to move it. We had it professionally restored from a local business that restores vintage appliances exclusively. Just to be safe, we had it checked out from the gas company, and they said it worked better than most industrial restaurant stoves. It's been our favorite investment for this space."
"The pantry is my favorite project. It used to be a closet, but turned into an awkward nook. We hired a carpenter to check out the space and told him our dilemma. If one day we needed the space for a play room, family area, we can easily use the pantry as storage.""We've lived here for 2 years in August. The kitchen was useable but the dining room slowly became a dumping ground in between renovations. It connects the house right in the middle, and I was so embarrassed walking through. There was nothing pretty about it. After finally getting it cleaned up, opening up the curtains, and hanging my favorite prints, it's become our brightest room."
"This is the heart of the house. I can wait for laundry down the hallway, listen to music (music is always on in this part of the house), and bring our laptops to work. We're loving this space more and more. And even though it's used for two, I can't wait to see what it evolves to when we welcome our third family member."
Thank you so much for sharing your kitchen/dining space with us, Diana! You can say hello to Diana over at her blog Our City Lights. xo.

I want that house!! 😀
I love my wife more than I hate pink …… what a guy!!!
It’s not a kitchen for me but 10/10 for effort
My goodness, what a pretty kitchen! I know my boyfriend would never go for it, but that’s what my office is for 😉
I love the Tenenbaum prints everywhere!! (Favorite movie ever.) I want them all! Beautiful and such a personal space.
Wow! That is one secure man sitting there! 😉 I don’t think I could stand having a pink kitchen. Congrats to her on having the guts! Just so you know, these “at home with” posts are one of my favorite features on ABM!!
I gasped when I saw this! PINK! And a beautiful kitchen! Best combo ever!
OH MY WORD! This is literally the best kitchen EVER!!! I’m a bit of a Hello Kitty geek so I love the accessories!
This is awesome! I’m a pink maniac myself and really impressed that she pulled off getting her boyfriend into the pink – hallo kitty – inspired kitchen. I love how hallo kitty is absolutely adored in Asia – there are stores with hallo kitty merchandise including anything from garments to toilet ring covers. And I promise you, it’s not kids that visits these shops 😉
Via la Pink. Check out my blog where I have plenty of pink inspiration.

Where are all the Royal Tenenbaums prints from? Looooove them!
how fun is this? I LOVE it!
I just love Hello Kitty everything!
As soon as I found this web site I went on reddit to share some of the love with them.
this is adorable.
To be quite honest, I’m not a fan of a lot of pink but it works in this space! I especially like the shade of pink she used!
Also the dining area is very, very pretty!
