ive gotten so excited about spring this past week that I havent continued my "room by room" inspirations for our new log home (hopefully, nut not positive, this year). Today, its all about kitchens. Right now its a toss up between this first kitchen and the very last kitchen, with a little bit of all of them thrown in. Since it will be a log home there will be a certain warmth to the entire house, even though I love the warmth I need some cool tones. Heres what Im thinking, dark, but natural base (walls, island, etc.) with a little bit of
Ifarmhouse charm to livin it up a bit.I want lots of
white pitchers, plates and accents. Ok I know I said it was a toss up between pic 1 and the last one, however, I think this next one is a good in bewteen the two, SO, maybe I picked the wrong one. Now, imagine this next room with all the warmth, charm and white accents in it....THATS what Im going for!
yep, this one is my fave, I just decided! I absolutely do not want natural wood cabinets, I want them white or similar to the the cabinets in this pic. The biggest reason, I think I didnt pick this picture is because of the island, Im not feeling it, definately need something a bit more brighter!
I know what your thinking, well, ok...I dont know, but if you are, I understand, LOL! I love the naturistic feel of this kitchen, the fact that there arent any cabinets on the walls, I dont know, it just seems very clean and simple, which I like! Oh and the little gingham curtains are so cute!
Throw in some vintage flair and Ive got me a purty nice kitchen, LOL! Of coarse Ive got to have me some color and a few vintage signs. I nearly fell over recently when dh said HE wanted to go to the flea market this year. Let me tell you, he IS NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES a flea market going man, hes just that way and I love him bunches!!! We want to find some "old things", like vintage signs, etc.
The biggest things about this room is that I did think about dh when I seen it. Basically because that island is calling his name. He wants to have a counter similar to this.
Now, finally, look at these cabin inspired kitchens, imagine there is a rasberry lemonade candle burning, there are white pitchers with fresh peonys in them, a vintage coke sign hanging and a few vintage dish towels about. Can you see it? Let me know, because I sure can!
Oh and happy 15 days till spring!!!
