Hi! I'm a grandma but I don't live in a senior center I do though have a keen eye for surprising elements, and classically eclectic taste. I have chosen elements way before they came trendy. I'm artistic, creative and a fearless DIYer. It breaks my heart when people stereotype grandmas! I can tell you when I am in a senior center I'll have the coolest room in the complex! : )

Oh, yes! I make a no-bottled-dressing exception for Annie's Goddess dressing. I know others who are hooked, too. We must be a cult!

As someone who actually grew up in the 70's I say adios to the old kitchen and hello to the new update. Yes, the new version needs a bit of personalization and perhaps some quirkiness, but it's fresh and so well done!

I'm going to veganize these by using maple syrup instead of honey. They look yummy, hearty and healthy!

Great post. I wanted to throw this question out. Although I love my Vitamix, it's big, bulky and ugly. I don't have cabinet space for it and I was wondering if anyone had any cool ideas for camouflaging that beast.

Hmmmmm. I'm kind of embarrassed that I can't tell if the photos are the problem rooms or if they're shots of the rooms after the remedies have been applied. Is it just me?

I'm in the minority but I love the huge utensils on that large wall space. They add a bit of fun and whimsy to an otherwise serious looking kitchen. They are indeed original!

My family's "gourmet' treats were porcupine meatballs, and Hawaiian salad with mini marshmallows. Gotta love the 70's.

Great post with some nice options to the brown speckled granite we've grown so (understatement) tired of. I just have to say I passionately hate tile countertops. Yes, they look so 80's. What's next big fluorescent overhead lighting?
