Neutral Territory

Kitchens. I like ’em clean and uncluttered. The sleeker and crisper a kitchen is the better I like it. And nothing says clean like neatness, organization, neutral colors, and no upper cabinets (though open upper cabinets are fine). I’m not against having decorative objects or color in the kitchen as long as they are accents and not the only thing you see. So, today I’m presenting some of my favorite (mostly white) kitchens. The uppers are missing or open, the decor isn’t tacky and over the top, and yet all if them look welcoming and homey.

Currently my very favorite kitchen. Everything about it makes me happy. Not sure of the source but I’d love to know!

image
There is a lot to love here: open shelves, white dinner and serveware, marble counter tops, rustic-modern cabinets, the wall mounted tap, and art leaning casually on the backsplash. Gorgeous!

A more feminine, traditional take on idea… this is so cute! It’d be perfect in a little cottage.

image
Technically, I’m cheating a bit here because there are some upper cabinets… but the rest of this kitchen is so perfect (especially the view through the door) that I couldn’t pass it up. And… its a tiny cabinet!

Chalkboard walls are a fun and functional way to bring interest to a kitchen.

Totally Inspiring Room

I found this pic (styled by James Leland Day) online while looking for Benjamin Moore’s Mysterious paint… I don’t know if that is the exact color in this pic but it looks close! Other pluses? My current obsession: a tray table. That rich caramel color on the sofa is making me drool. All in all a really pretty… and totally inspiring room!

Blog Love: A Perfect Gray

I stumbled across A Perfect Gray… well, I don’t quite remember how but I’ve been lurking there for the past two days. Nearly every picture on this gorgeous blog features the color gray. While it might be easy to believe that nothing but gray interiors would be boring, I can assure you it’s not. If anything it has been something of an adventure discovering just how versatile gray is!

I am really in love with gray and have been for about the last year or so. So, it was really a pleasure to come across this blog – it is truly inspirational! Also, while reading some of the entries on A Perfect Gray, I was introduced to the blog Greige. I haven’t had a chance to look at it in depth yet because I’m still caught up with all the wonderful stuff on A Perfect Gray. I hope you all enjoy them both as much as I am!
