The time has come, my little ones, to talk of other things. Namely, inspiration... make that kitchInspiration. Too cheesy for you? Not me.
We are ready to go with the kitchen. Dad is building cabinet frames, the floor is down, I bought a 30 inch, single basin, fireclay, apron front sink! I adore it and can't wait to do dishes in it... STRIKE THAT.... can't wait to watch Bran do dishes in it... STRIKE THAT... can't wait to watch Bran put the dishes in the dishwasher from my lovely sink.
But still, I don't know what I want to do with the cabinets, backsplash, hardware, etc. Many decisions to be made, and not terribly much time to make them in. I am picky. Very picky. Since we are on a super dooper incredibly tight budget, that makes it ever more difficult. In a kitchen, I'll go for function over form. However, aesthetically, I love or am inspired by elements of these kitchens:
Again with blueish cabinetry. I love the pop of teal and the farm sink! The owner of this kitchen mentioned that the backsplash was not installed. They went with white subway tiles.
How gorgeous is this kitchen (esp that last shot!)? I love the copper touches. I feel like this kitchen is just begging to have a redhead cook.
These two look similar, with the mini white tiles. I tend to like the first one a little bit more, but the jury is still out on these tiles. I feel like they will really date the kitchen (what, blue cabinets won't?)
Not totally my style, but I can appreciate it's classic beauty.
I like the mix of marble and wood here with the white subway tiles.
