IN THE KITCHEN :: COMMERCIAL VS. CONVENTIONAL

industrial kitchen with light wood

i come from a restaurant family, so it’s no wonder that I’m drawn to a bit of a commercial style in my kitchen. After all, open shelving, plenty of stainless steel and a more ‘deconstructed’ feel isn’t anything new… But, how far is too far when taking this look into the home? The kitchen above just about […]

    It’s so funny because whenever I see photos of such beautiful kitchens (mostly on pinterest), I always surprise myself at the really big variety of styles I’m drawn to. While at heart I love my classic kitchens with a more rustic feel, I also have seen some uber-modern, sleek and minimalistic kitchens I love. That last kitchen is just the right balance though- so gorgeous and can only dream of having something like that one day!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I love the romantic, industrial inspired kitchen with patterned floors, as well as the rustic, traditional kitchen with the morning light flooding in!

    I like the last kitchen with the glass door and the window with flowers or herbs beside because I’m into big romantic traditionally looking kitchens. Like you said, the light is very important when you cook and for me, also the possibility to get fresh air into the room very quickly is quite essential, especially when something goes wrong during cooking. ;) I moved to Toronto a month ago and I want my new flat to be original so I’m thinking about trying vintage style. I found a list of some shops here last week and I’ve already visited some of them. They had some unique pieces even for the kitchen but I’m still not sure. What do you think about vintage kitchens? Is it a good idea? I would be thankful for any of your recommendation!

INTERIORS TO INSPIRE :: URBANE ECLECTIC IN SPAIN

mikkel larrinaga bilbao apartment living room1

I’ve noticed a shift in my interiors taste lately… which seems to happen every few years or so. It seems natural, of course, for this to happen. If we stay stagnant, we aren’t growing, and that goes for taste and life in general! But I’m actually surprised by some of the things I’m attracted to – […]

    I totally understand this shift in style preferences. I have been finding myself leading towards some of the same things, in a way I feel like it grounds me a bit a I get older

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 7.17

thomas obrien west village loft kitchen

I’ve been paying an absurd amount of attention to kitchens lately. Why? Well, on top of the small remodel we did in our office studio, I’ve been slowly updating the kitchen in my loft, and of course daydreaming of remodeling the one in my guy’s house too. It’s an overwhelming task, and the more I look […]

    I love how casual that kitchen is. And the color of the cabinets are different from what you see every day. It is a beautiful space. I agree with you I have been loving brass pulls lately too, but wonder how it would be with the stainless steel. Good luck!

    I agree with what Lianna said. This kitchen reads so casual, it just invites you in. And the storage, like the OP said, amazing! Practical + Good looking is always great. The wallcovering, or brick facade, whatever it is, also provides a nice pop in the space. Same with the faux or true granite against the wall…

HIGH SHINE IN THE KITCHEN!

gold kitchen cabinets fiona lynch

I like shiny things. I love hanging out in my kitchen. So, I should probably really really love this mini metallic trend of super glamorous cabinets in materials like brass and mirror… But the practical side of me just sees little babes running around putting their fingerprints all over these beauties and me constantly right behind them […]

    Maybe best not to have a husband either if you want to keep these pristine. i don’t feel like these are kitchens that see actual use but they sure look nice in pictures.

    These kitchens are beauties – I agree with you though, they are apparently made for looking at not actually cooking in.

    (Same finger print idea goes for black kitchen cabinets too.) From experience, husbands don’t always use the hardware on cabinets either – which makes for finger prints in the most unlikely of spots.

IN THE DETAILS :: WHITE KITCHEN + WOOD ISLAND

lauren leiss white and wood kitchen

If you had asked me 15 years ago if I would ever do lighter woods in my home, my response probably would have been a vehement “no”. Growing up with a plethora of bad yellow oak flooring all over our home, I hated the way we had to design around it (we, meaning my parents of […]

    I love this. I think it would be particularly beautiful in an open shore house kitchen. I love the contrast between the darker wood floors with the reclaimed wood (almost driftwood colored) island. I’ll have to bookmark this for future projects.

    Really nice kitchen, I just can’t stop starring at it, I gonna be an architect so this is kind of fascinating me (: I like that photograph at the fourth pic.

    I love images 3 and 4 with the clean lines and more refined wood! Great contrast ideas, and those dipped stools are a great tie in! The use of different textures in kitchen 4 and the painted brick and wood ceiling are really interesting!

    I’m looking for cabinet hardware like in the first picture (long pulls in black). Cannot find anything anywhere. Do you know where those are from!?
