Kitchen love










I never tire of looking at kitchens: Floor to ceiling cabinets (or "cupboards", as I was corrected in saying); open shelving; windows; huge rough-hewn chopping blocks; gleaming tile or bright colorful wallpaper; wooden countertops or marble surfaces- I love it all. To me, kitchens inspire creativity in the way we cook and eat, as well as provide a backdrop for the place where your family and friends spend a lot of time, since that's where crowds tend to gather.

I happen to have lucked out in our new London flat- the kitchen is roomy (by my standards) and has loads of cabinets and a fantastic stove range. But the best feature is the windowed french doors looking out onto surrounding neighbor's gardens! My next task is to find the right chairs for my little wooden dining table so we can have a real dinner party. (images from Domino, House Beautiful, Bolig Liv and Country Home)

Aw, those kitchens are so pretty! Looking at them makes me yearn for the day I get married, get settled, and cook in my own kitchen :-D

Hi MC
Thanks for reading my blog! It is a treat to have an appreciative husband to cook for:) I hope your day to settle in your own kitchen comes soon!

I never tire looking at kitchens either. I think it's the heart of the home - even in our home and I don't even cook much (or well). We spend a lot of time there anyway. Lovely images you collected and great blog! :)

I've always wanted a huge wood burning fire place in my kitchen. Like 5 foot tall and like 6 foot wide.


My kitchen is way to small for that!
