Kitchens are the heart of the home. I never really knew what that ment until we started entertaining and cooking more. Now I know exactly what that means. We have an alley kitchen that is very narrow. Even with a full house, people find themselves hanging out in our tiny kitchen. Now since we rent, we have to be ok with our cabinets and countertops  To be honest, my kitchen is not my fave. I am naturally drawn to white kitchens. They are bright, cheery and easy to want to cook in. I need that! One quick decorating trick for keeping a white kitchen from looking sterol is to add wood. Whether it’s wood accessories, countertops, beams…wood is the trick of the trade. My favorite detail to add to a kitchen (my clients know this very well) is to add 2 white ceramic jars and fill one with a variety of stainless steel utensils and the other with wooden utensils. It’s a practical trick that looks super cool. You can see an example in the first image.

What’s your favorite kitchen design?

That first picture is so inspiring! I never considered having a frame picture on a kitchen counter like that, but I LOVE it!

Wow, earlier I used to a great fan of simply designed wooden kitchen worktops, but I must admit that these pictures have inspired me to try something new while I go for kitchen remodeling.
