Kitchen Inspiration Board

The Rustic White Kitchen

Lately I've been pondering white kitchens. There is certainly no shortage of beautiful white kitchens to admire in magazines and on pinterest, but there's something about it that I've always been a little resistant to. I don't know why. I love white, but I've had this notion that The White Kitchen would always be for someone else. In my own dream kitchen, I would choose a different color (painted cabinets for sure, but not white). But I'm starting to reconsider...

Now, let me be clear, there is no "dream kitchen" in my immediate future. And I am okay with that - I am learning day by day to be wholly content with what I have. But, let's also be clear, if you have the design bug, you won't ever stop decorating! It can't be turned off just because there's no actual room to redo. And thus, I've been pondering white kitchens...

And I've decided that I could easily love a white kitchen if it was anything like the Rustic White Kitchen that I've pieced together above! Simple, shaker style white cabinets, white walls, white windows, and a big white farmhouse sink. Add to that a generous dose of dark rustic wood, through antique tables, cutting boards, wooden bowls, and a big antique wood cupboard to display some white ironstone. And top if off with my collection of antique yellow ware, and a topiary or two. White + rustic wood + yellow ware = what just might be my white dream kitchen.

What does your dream kitchen look like?

(Several of the pictures in my inspiration board are from my own home, and the rest are from my Pinterest boards, along with links back to where I discovered them.)

Random Pictures

The dining room, as seen from the kitchen
My make-shift vanity area on top of our bedroom dresser
The TV area, furnished with a huge antique mirror and large-scale garden pineapple finials.

A couple of random pictures from the house, just for fun. Or, more to the point, just because I wanted to add them to my newly created "OUR HOME" pinterest board, and I figured it's better to do it with a link to the blog rather than a dead-end "uploaded by user". There's the truth :)
