*Before we dive into pretty kitchens this morning, I wanted to take a second thank each of you for the sweet emails, texts and calls after my post yesterday. The encouraging notes mean more than you know and left me feeling so uplifted and loved. THANK YOU! {sniff sniff- wiping eyes now}*

I showed you some of my least favorite kitchen options last week (which, by the way, some aren't too far off from what we've seen while house hunting) so let's move on to bigger and better things, shall we?

I've noticed my eye is immediately drawn to white kitchens with a lot of natural light! They seem to give that crisp, clean feeling. I also love pinches of texture; slate, range hoods, wood floors, backsplashes, open beams, etc; details that give it character and charm and go against the stiff mold of an everyday average room. (I'll do another post later dedicated to DETAILS!) But for now, let's stick with the bigger pictures:

Glass cabinets + wide plank floors = drool.

ALL that light + open concept = :)
I'd be a shame not to mention that gorgeous farmhouse table to the right. Can't you see so many family get-togethers there?!

I know I said I love white, but hints of color make me happy. Plus, that farmhouse sink! Nostalgia at it's finest.

High ceiling with open beams. Some may call that wasted space, I call it lovely.

Talk about making the most of a small space and taking advantage of greenery outside. It almost reminds me of a small greenhouse renovated into a kitchen. (Maybe it was? I need to track down the origin of this pic!)

so crisp, so clean.

Perfect symmetry!
(Side note, I'm personally not in love with the bar stools.)

This is so cozy but clean at the same time, perfect combination between old and new.


I realize the image below doesn't fit into the mold of the other photos, but I'm in love with all of the textures and colors being used.

Okay, I'll stop there. You'd be here all day with all of the photos I've collected.

Beware, you have more eye candy coming your way. It is weird that I get some sort of high from ORGANIZATION and DETAILS?!!

Are there certain kitchens that your eye is ALWAYS drawn to?!
