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!


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.

Do you have a favourite?

    As I read the post and came to the second kitchen I thought it would be my favorite of the lot – until I saw the third (Ochre chandelier kitchen) and oh my! Although they are all lovely – and like you I wouldn’t mind calling any one of them my own – I could love the Ochre chandelier kitchen forever. Thanks for some fun drooling this morning.

    These are some great rooms!!!
    I want a long long rough wooden table soo bad it hurts. If I had a giant kitchen – a giant house. I just have giant kids!

    (I have my giant table outside!)

    This is definitely an excellent selection, difficult to choose. Maybe nr 3, for the wonderful lamp and tiled wall. :-)

    Wow, maybe those gorgeous counter height wire chairs (wrapped in leather – YUM) would be perfect in your kitchen?! They have backs, wood in the dowel legs, and are reasonably affordable…
    By the way, please don’t doubt that you already have one of the most gorgeous kitchens I’ve ever seen. :)
