some beautiful kitchens

Have you noticed the theme yet this month? Yes, kitchens!  Below are a few choice ones, each beautiful in their own way that I wouldn't calling my own or at least borrowing from! tumblr_m8oygddVes1qastypo1_500

For pure fearlessness, you have to love  this kitchen. The rough wood island, the rustic stools, the strip of tumbled stone floor, the vintage lights - it's all screaming for attention yet somehow works as a cohesive whole.
