Rustic, elegant kitchens

Though completely varied in their location and space, these kitchens all seem warm and charming- and despite some being quite elegant, I can imagine actually cooking in them. I'm always falling under the spell of rustic or old-world kitchens! (photos, from top: Taschen, Elle Decor, Living Etc; last photo from Marie Claire)

Hi! I`ve been visiting your blog for a long time, and I like very much your way of writing. It`s surely one of the first sites that I visit when I`m looking for news.
I have a blog called ponto.arquitetura, and it`s from Brazil. It talks about architecture, interiors and design. I`d be greatfull if it could be between your blogroll. And I also want to ask if I can put your between mine.
Congratulations for your talent! And my best wishes!

I definitely would have bought it the first time around! It's just beautiful and you can do so many things with it for the different seasons. It looks just beautiful as you have it right this site.

I absolutely love these post office box looking storage in the last image! Fell in love with that idea when I saw it used by AvroKO in Pulic restaurant in NY. You might enjoy a glance just for fun!
They have such unexpected little design elements there... a wall of keys, soap, mailboxes... your blog post was a lovely reminder. I'm not advertising I just liked it haha :)

Enjoy and thank you for sharing!
