I've got it bad for open shelves in the kitchen these days. By the time we're able to remodel our kitchen, I'll still be on my open shelves kick while everyone else has moved on to the next big trend. But alas, let's look at pretty pictures, shall we?
I want to eat a fancy breakfast in this kitchen!! This bright and sunny space reinforces my 'bigger isn't always better' mantra. Smaller spaces can be charming and cozy especially with the right ingredients.
Can I get an amen? I just adore everything about this. I'm super ADD when it comes to what I want in a kitchen so while this is gorgeous, let's move right along...
I'm digging this fancy-schmancy coffee bar area on these dove grey cabinets.
I realize the open shelves above the sink is so people of normal height wouldn't bonk their head on the upper cabinets (I'm vertically challenged a tad so I think I'd need a step stool to was dishes here) but I like that this gives someone like me who can't make a decision a little bit of both....cabinets and shelves.
I REALLY like the concept of having a dining room table also serving as an island. Clever use of space! I'm getting off track. Focus, right? Shelves. We're talking about shelves.
Oh lordy! Would you look at that come hither desk area. I would organize the heck out of my family if I had a cute little area to do so. There's my excuse....I don't have a cute area.
This kitchen makes me either want to smile or cry. It's beautiful but so very perfect. I kind of get anxiety thinking about all our kiddos in here. It would not look like this after they got ahold of it. Hmm...maybe I'm onto something...a kitchen just for mom and a kitchen for the kids? Kind of like his and her master bathrooms that's trending currently.
The sink, the floors, the topiary, the shelves, the white goodies on the shelves....YUM!
