In Search of my perfect kitchen...

Posted January 11, 2010 by Christina














So I have had kitchens on the brain. I am in search of the elements of a perfect kitchen. Our kitchen is in desperate need of change and update {think bad California track house kitchen circa 1998}. I am desperately in love with the grey paint idea for the cabinets but I love free standing storage pieces for the space also. See picture #3 I found this in Canadian House and Home - however I would love to see this kitchen from another angle. I cannot find the rest of the photos of this house anywhere- of course it is from an issue in 2007- hello!

Anyway- if you have seen it please send me the link!!

If I could design a kitchen from scratch my mind would explode. So many gorgeous..gorgeous kitchens that all of us see on any given day. The first photo has so much that I am drawn to. I would so love a huge farm table smack dab in the middle, just to say, ‘pull up a comfy chair & help me chop’. Next week I’ll see an ultra modern kitchen & change my mind once again! x deb

Do you know what month in 2007 the Canadian House & Home picture is from? Unless someone in my family got into my magazine stash, I have all the issues in 2007. Let me know – I’ll scan them in and email it to you. Michele

The first image is my favorite! That table with the upholstered benches is stunning!

My fave is number two, but the island bench in number 3 is fabulous!

Look forward to seeing all of your perfect kitchen elements put together :)

Do you have the source for the last picture? I am dying to find out the color of the cabinets. Thanks.

I have designed 3 kitchens now, from the ground up and it is an awful lot of work and every time I finished, I saw something that I wished I had done differently. But the feeling of accomplishment is great!
I can’t decide between the first and the second photos..
I am in the smallest kitchen I have had .. maybe ever.. so I am loving all those surfaces to put things and do things.
And the light .. that wonderful light !

I love this blog and seem to be slightly addicted ~

It looks like the color is Benjamin Moore Fieldstone. I hope this helps!
