Kitchen Inspiration

Happy Valentine's Day!!! 

Hope that you or your honey are cookin' up something sweet in your kitchen tonight.  Steve is making me a surprise dinner and I can't wait!  I am furnishing dessert-some cherry hazelnut chocolate with a chocolate Porter beer to go along!  Yum! 

I have been busy pinning kitchen ideas on Pinterest for quite a while now and am really trying to narrow in on what I want in our kitchen.  I also have a big binder full of ideas for our kitchen that I have pulled out of various magazines over the years.  Another resource is Powell's Bungalow Kitchens as well as Labau's The New Bungalow Kitchen.  I highly recommend both of these books for information on period design as well as inspiration, especially Powell's book.  I have read Bungalow Kitchens front to back several times. 

Here are some inspiration pictures for my dream kitchen, found on Pinterest. 
luv these cabinets and the feel-save money with one tall cabinet made to look like two via

tile to ceiling, baseboard detail around sink, sconces framing sink via

dark grey grout in white kitchen, just like our bathroom.  Also like the cabinets above window but don't think I'll do that via

tile all the way up...also luv the clock via

appliance caddy-NEED, hate stuff all over the counter via

yes please!!! store those baking sheets via

either this or a tilt out via

luv the chalkboard but the hidden micro is even better via

white gas range-too bad viking has terrible reviews via

arch detail on upper cabinets-maybe range hood? via
