Kitchen Inspiration

I recently received an email from a sweet reader named Tessa who asked that I take a picture of my kitchen. I was honored and in disbelief! It appears that she is looking to do a kitchen makeover and is looking for some inspiration.

Well Tessa - just like you - I am in need of a kitchen makeover as well. So instead of posting pictures of my own kitchen that is always a project in my mind . . .I am presenting what I find inspiring and what elements I would include in a kitchen makeover. High ceilings with industrial lighting and white cupboards that go up and up and up.
A marvelous back splash. I love the glossy tile here. Hand scraped dark wood floors.
Farm sinks with elegant faucets.
Old chippy hutches.
And antique china and dishes all around.

I'm with you, I love all those elements and would love to be able to incorporate them in a new kitchen remodel. My poor kitchen needs some help! : P

Thanks for the inspiration! I'm getting ready to paint my kitchen cabinets (pray for me). Changing them from maple to white.

I am happy to announce we are currently shopping around for such hand scraped, dark, wood floors for our kitchen & main floor. Goodbye ugly white carpet! White carpet? Who ever thought that would be a good idea??

Sigh- My kinda kitchen. Maybe a bunch of us like minded thinkers should all move in together and create one big fantastic kitchen...no horses or brats allowed. (I was gonna say no men...but I figured with Valentine's Day coming I'd better hedge my bets)..Hugs-Diana

Oh my goodness, it's like you were in my computer, pulling my idea pictures! :o)
We are in the midst of a main floor reno, it's going to ramp up in about 3 weeks. I discovered your website while looking for inspiration for a piece I need in the new open area, and had to show my husband the pictures. It's almost exactly like what we are going for. Thanks for confirming we have great taste!
