Kitchen Love

From my bookmarked files.  Many of you have probably seen these before, but I consider them pretty enough to repost.

I first saw this kitchen on Things That Inspire blog.  I love the detail on the cabinets and the fireplace, the chandelier and the antique french flooring on the french blue island.

I love this gorgeous white kitchen from Elle Decor.

They're calling this a French Catering Kitchen from Inspired Design.  Is that a thing? I like it. 

This breakfast area inspired me to paint my windsor chairs (at least until I can get monogrammed slip covered parsons chairs) - I went with a pale gray - they'll be finished in 2012.

I love the color of the next kitchen and the way they used the bright suzani rug under the island.

Of course, I have to include this blue and white kitchen I found on Willow Decor.  Hi awesome stone pizza oven!

A pretty white kitchen courtesy of Decorno.  I can imagine any one of my good friends sitting there with a glass of wine discussing important celebrity gossip with me while I cook.

And finally, very different from the crisp white marble and stainless steel, this romantic kitchen I first saw on Boxwood Terrace.  I love the windows over the sink.

For an excellent post on kitchens, I'd encourage you to visit this post from Cote de Texas.  Every image is inspiring and she walks you through the details that make them fabulous kitchens.  

I'm almost finished painting my kitchen.  It's taking forever because Kip has been out of town and Edward leaves me exhausted by the end of the day (we play hard) 


  1. Love it all, some of these are in my files and a few are new. All are classicly beautiful kitchens that will stand the test of time (and trends). Just stunning! I cannot wait to see what you came up with for yours!

  2. kitchen is my favorite room in a house. i could look at kitchen pictures for ever ; )

  3. I agree with you -- every single one is a dream kitchen!

  4. I just love kitchens with fireplaces. They are so cozy. I wish I could have one.
    I also like the ones that have rugs on the floor! It´s not usuall buy I think rugs give a perfect homey look.
    Thanks for sharing such nice pictures.

  5. Wow, I might actually enjoy cooking if I had a kitchen like these! Stunning images, thanks for sharing!

  6. Just found your blog via Tina - great stuff here! That Darryl Carter kitchen is one of my faves and Garrison Hullinger design is from my home - Portland, OR - love that one too!
