Dreamy kitchens

Happy New Year!

Today's post is going to be about kitchens. It's the most important room in the house, and almost all homeowners have their idea of the dream kitchen.

My dream kitchen? A white kitchen. Like this one.


Or this one.

Swoon. I love airy kitchens with a lot of sunlight.

Having a white kitchen may not be the brightest idea when you have a kid running/crawling around the house, so I've been scouring the internet for photos of beautiful kitchens in different colours. I gravitate towards neutral and muted tones.

There seem to be hundreds of photos of beautiful kitchens, but I find it difficult to find ones that I really love. And each kitchen is unique to its owner, so collecting these photos and trying to figure out what I love about each one may help me to figure out what my future kitchen would look like.

Let's check out these lovely kitchens in neutral colours.
I love the marble floor, the simple cabinets, the simple lines.

I love this kitchen in the photo above. I feel at peace just looking at it. I love the stone backsplash at the stove, the industrial stools, the stone countertop and the simple clean lines of the kitchen cabinets. Minimal beautiful, that's what it is.

This kitchen is simply gorgeous. Simple green-grey cabinets, lovely lamps on the countertop, chicken-wire mesh on the upper cabinets to reveal white dishware. Beautiful!

I love this kitchen too. So cool and calming.

Another Beta Plus kitchen above.  Gorgeous grey-coloured cabinets, the stone floor, the weathered wood - everything about it is gorgeous!

Beautiful kitchen above. So simple and pretty.

The backsplash of this kitchen caught my eye. Lovely colour.

Even stole some photos of celebrity kitchens. Meg Ryan has great taste (below). I adore her industrial kitchen. The lights are beautiful. The chunky wood island completes this kitchen.
Courteney Cox also has great taste when it comes to interior style and decoration. I really like the glossy white cabinets and the industrial chairs.

I am still collecting more images on Pinterest, but I think I am getting the idea of what I like - simple, clean lines, texture, minimal/contemporary with a few details.

Simple, clean lines for the cabinets. Another example below.

Add in some texture with wicker -these baskets are beautiful.

And potted plants to add pops of green colour.

Industrial lights like these would be the details I would love to have.

And perhaps white subway tiles for the backsplash?

But I'll probably change my mind again tomorrow!

Of course, possibilities are endless if you have an unlimited budget! Perhaps my future post should talk about kitchen decoration on a budget. Hmmm....

Have a wonderful week ahead!
