Color Splash: Kitchens

  1. LindsB says:

    I’d have to go with white, white and more white. Ok maybe really dark floors and then add in some color with accessories, but I love me some white!

    I can’t wait to see your new kitchen with the subway tile- yeah!

  2. Paloma {La Dolce Vita} says:

    Personally, I like white kitchens, though I think black cabinets look great, too.

    The white kitchen in this post is gorgeous!

  3. GracefulElegance says:

    Something about a white kitchen gives off such an airy/fresh feeling…

  4. Allison aka HaselBride says:

    My dream kitchen would be white, white, white with splashes of grey (particularly in my fabulous marble countertops!). However, I will have to keep dreaming because our home has oak (or maple?) kitchen cabinets and EVERYONE has advised me against painting them because of the resale value. We will be reselling in three years or so… my dream kitchen will just have to wait!

  5. Sarah says:

    I love white Carrara marble countertops w/ a grey vein, with white cabinets, wood floors, and shiny silver fixtures (faucets and such).

  6. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    Hmmmm….that’s a toughie. I have this “pretend we were remodeling a kitchen” discussion with my Hubby all the time.
    Don’t think I’d ever do the natural wood thing, but I’d have a hard time deciding between white cabinets with a good countertop/ island work-station material combo, or the grayish-green cabinet/dark countertop look you see a lot of.
    Ahhhh…the choices!

  7. Blueprint Bliss says:

    After looking at those photos- I am a white kitchen kind of girl. Love some white (as y’all know from my many white posts)! But I do like white cabinets and walls with dark/black granite countertops.

  8. pve design says:

    For my home, I want dark wood, light counters and an island. I want some sort of fun lighting and a window bench to have breakfast at with a big mug of coffee or tea. ( I do love white – but not for this house.)
    I love Nigella Lawson’s kitchen.

  9. LyndsAU says:

    Lately I am loving white kitchens!!! But I love that green too. I am such a torn decorator. I love color but lately i love the simplicity of white!!

  10. Debra says:

    I can’t wait to see your photos. My kitchen is white and black- 6 years later and I still love it!
    I also love Something’s Gotta Give. I have the dvd and watch it several times a year. The PERFECT home!

  11. down and out chic says:

    i love bright kitchens, they’re so cheerful and they help motivate me to cook!

  12. Jennifer says:

    could go so many ways! My issue always comes down to wanting both a country and a city kitchen, regardless of the colors and finishes.

  13. Lauren says:

    white with a bit of natural texture, be it stone or wood somewhere…

    i have been having blogging withdrawal so i had to sneak on & say hi!!! 🙂 LOVe the amy butler linen pices wow!!! and can't wait to see pics of the kitchen!!!

  14. rightbank says:

    I had always been a white kitchen person but lately, I’m loving really dark cabinets. Can’t wait to see your new kitchen!

  15. california dreaming says:

    We are in the process of doing our kitchen – we just bought our first home, and it is all black and white with some wine (both color and bottles) accents. I’ve been really happy with how it’s coming out but it is doing to take a little while for the floors so I haven’t put up any pics

  16. Wanderings of a Wannabe says:

    i’m painting the town white…when I get a new one! although i do love the pop of color on some (not all) cabinetry, usually if the kitchen is on the small side.

  17. so alaurable says:

    The Something’s Gotta Give Kitchen is my fave! My kitchen style is definitely white, maybe with a few pops of color. (If I ever knew for certain that I’d get my dream white kitchen, I’d start collecting stand mixers in the like in turquoise or something equally fun.)

  18. Porchlight Interiors says:

    The white kitchen here is definately my favourite and almost identical layout to the galley kitchen I’m planning in my house, so thanks for the photo! Tracey xx

  19. Kwana says:

    I have light wood in the kitchen and love it along with cream. It came with the house but I’m drawn to the photos of white kitchens. So beautiful. But to clean?

  20. says:

    I love splashes of color but I have always dreamed of a classic white kitchen. I really love white cabinets and ebony wood floors, aaahhh… someday 🙂

  21. Michael says:

    Kitchen cabinets take up 75% of the space in a kitchen by themselves and you must really think about what you are doing before you decide on the color of your kitchen

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
