Kitchens: Heart of the Home

note:  the granite sink, warmth of the wood and the chicken wire.  
What do you think of the exposed shelves and the baskets?  

Dear readers, for the past few weeks I have found myself overwhelmed with a kitchen renovation project.  I do believe that the end is in sight.  The cabinetry is under construction as we speak.  

I hope you enjoy some of these kitchen images.  I have had them in an inspiration file for some time now.  I'm sorry that I did not make a note of who did the design work or the photography.  If you know, please leave me a message.  I'd like to give them credit.  

note:  the contrasting cabinet finishes and the beamed ceiling  

note:  beamed ceiling and chandelier, also note the fountain in the background.
This is one of my all time favorites.  It was designed by Bunny Williams.  

note:  wide planked floors

note:  the hood and the sunlight

note:  the very light flooring, high contrast, firewood and brick

What does your dream kitchen contain--
other than Paula Deen, Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson or Anthony Bourdain?
