So, I’m doing another inspiration room this week! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share this gem of kitchen with you:
Lindsay Reid’s Pasadena cottage kitchen from the June 2011 issue of House Beautiful.
This room is so elegant and simple. I love the dark gray cabinets, the coolly linear backsplash, the warmth of the textiles on the window and window seat… and the complete lack of upper cabinets. I’ve seen some really beautiful kitchens but I think this one is definitely vying for first place on my list of favorites.
What do you think of this kitchen? Love it or hate it?
Amy D Morris kitted out this fantastic room for Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Magazine Showhouse… and what a stunner! This room is so beautiful, glamourous, brilliant… and sexy. I keep coming back to the photos and just drooling over the dark, blingy richness of the room’s scheme. It is definitely too good to keep to myself!
Check out the rest of the AHLShowhouse, there is a TON of design inspiration. Enjoy!
Once upon a time if you looked at my wardrobe all you’d find was black, white, and blue. Yes, sadly, I dressed for years in third day bruise colors. Then at some point I decided that I kinda liked pink. Then purple. For a while every article of clothing I bought was some brilliant shade of green. Eventually, I even succumbed to the mother of all bold colors, that femme fatale, red. Now, I can’t get enough of anything gray… All this to say, that I’m a fairly recent fan of color.
A couple of colors that I’d never thought I’d ever have a jones for, no matter how deeply enmeshed in the color wheel I became, are orange and yellow. They just never did anything for me. They kind seemed a little too much color (this is comimg from a girl who swore she’d never be caught in red!). Orange still doesn’t do a thing for me… But yellow? I’m definitely coming around.
Don’t worry, Orange, I’m sure I’ll come around.
