It's positively frigid here in Illinois.
The weathermen have been calling our town, "Chiberia".
Trying to stay indoors as much as we can
to avoid exposure to the extreme conditions.
So in an effort to redirect my attention,
I am blogging about kitchens this week.
Kitchens are a hot topic for me at work right now
with two clients renovating theirs.
As I am helping them with their plans,
I've been scouring the web for inspiration.
Decided to share some kitchens
that have taken my breath away!
I love, love, love
a white kitchen hands down, no question.
However, a white kitchen has to have
some warm wood tones in it
to keep it grounded and not too stark.
Antiques or vintage pieces added
to the mix makes it more cozy, in my opinion.
Using old weathered or worn piece(s)
add that one-of-a-kind
feature you won't find anywhere else.
|Warm woods and buttery walls and ceilings make this white kitchen pop.|
|Interesting lighting adds character.|
|Chunky barn beams and weathered lighting and accessories add interest here.|
|Beams beams beams!|
|Joan's kitchen (from For The Love of a House blog) always makes my heart skip a beat |
with her stone fireplace as a focal point in her gorgeous old farmhouse. <3
|Earthy natural elements make this room cozy. Must be gorgeous at night.|
|Clean lines, not too fussy, great lighting. Lovely.|
|Love my sweet friend Tina's kitchen from The Enchanted Home blog, |
Grand details and perfectly proportioned for her East Coast manse.
Come back later this week
to see before and after photos
of our kitchen here at the Polohouse.
Stay tuned and stay warm
wherever this post finds you!
