Every month I get Southern Living and Better Homes and Gardens magazines... and every month I dream about my ideal house... and kitchen. Here are some inspiring photos of what I want in my kitchen:
I would love an island and a lot of natural light. I also ♥ the white cabinets with their stainless pulls... it coordinates so well with the stainless appliances.
Another must would be a breakfast nook like this one...
... built-in benches would rock! Again, loving the natural light... *swoon* Hey, did you notice that little drawer below the bench?! Handy storage is a must, too! The plank-style wood floors in both of these kitchens is great and lends a more casual feel. I'm all about class and style without sacrificing comfort. I don't want a stuffy home, but I do want something that I enjoy looking at. :-)
I imagine my forever-home (you know, the one we grow old in and all that...) to have a kitchen which is open and connected to the rest of the home, an open floor-plan. It doesn't have to be a massive huge kitchen, but I want to be able to have my two girls in there with me, especially during holidays, etc. as a place where we can all gather to share life and memories. :-)
I am completely enjoying these posts and can't wait to see everyone else who links up with Gussy today, feel free to follow me, I'm happy to follow back and really enjoy 'meeting' everyone!
