Dream Kitchen

BJ at Sweet Nothings is asking for pictures of our dream kitchens. Well, of course I'll share! You are about to find out just how scattered I am when it comes to decorating. I am not one of those people who loves a narrow palette of colors and can stick to it. Oh, no, I love it all! If it is beautiful it goes in the file. So here they are, my top four kitchens (this week) that I love.
Number one would be this beautiful bright white kitchen from Traditional Home magazine. It's all about the light, and this kitchen is so full of sunlight you could get a tan. And how gorgeous is all that dark wood? The custom islands? Beams? Huge windows....I love it all. I would have to have some ivy or something growing around the window, that's just me, but oh my goodness, this kitchen is the bomb!
And look at kitchen number two. Dont you love the gothic details on the cabinets? One of my favorite shapes, the gothic arch. And more sunlight, and (gulp) stained glass! Not quite as grand as the top kitchen but I would take this in a heartbeat! Photo from Cottage living
And lest you think that white kitchens are all I dream of, get a load at this cottage beauty! The red checks! The dark wood cabinets! The rug and dishes and color, color, color! Ahhhh. Notice the big window, I do see one constant here. Light!

And now for something completely different! I love these colors too! My sweetie does a LOT of the cooking so I know this is too feminine for him. But I love all the details, the checkerboard floor, the reeded glass in the cabinets, the little butlers pantry between the kitchen and dining room! What's not to love? It's just plain sweet. Maybe in a little vacation cottage by a lake?

So there you have it. Hope you enjoyed my choices, I'll be checking on yours soon. But first, I have a plane to catch tomorrow morning for Florida! I'll be gone til Tuesday and then I will be making the rounds and sharing the fun. I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial day weekend. I will be taking a moment to remember all the brave men and women who make this freedom we enjoy possible. See you all next week!


  1. Hi kathy!

    This fourth pic from Cottage Style is one of my favorite kitchens ever. I found it in the magazine and tore it out and have it in a folder. How can you NOT love those lavender and lime green walls?
