Who’s already planning out her next kitchen?
Yep. That would be me. Crazy, insane, kitchen-loving me.
Don’t get me wrong – we haven’t yet bought a house. We’re still trying to decide between a couple of nearly-perfect properties that we’ve seen, while desperately hoping that a really-perfect property appears in the meantime and before we make an offer elsewhere. We’ve seen quite a few houses at this point. There’s been a bit of good, a lot of bad, and oodles of ugly.
And, the common ugly element with each house we’ve seen? The kitchen.
Yep, that’s right. Nearly every house we’ve seen has had what I like to affectionately refer to as a “scary kitchen.” Be it because of filth, or due to wear and tear, or even just really really unsuccessful decorating attempts (for the record, mac-tac is not a good or lasting solution for hiding outdated countertops), I’ve seen a tonne of awful kitchens during our house-hunting rounds.
So, as a kitchen pick-me-up, let’s look at a few of my most recent lust-worthy Pinterest finds, k? To cleanse my kitchen-looking palate, if you will. To erase (or at least quasi-quash) the memories of all the bad that we’ve recently seen.
First, I’d like to officially declare my love for (fellow Canadian!) Sarah Richardson’s super pretty white and gray (with a wee bit of blue thrown in too!) kitchen…
See that ceiling? Oh sighhhh. I’d like that exact ceiling in my (next, yet to be purchased) kitchen, if you please.
And then there’s this one that apparently (according to Pinterest!) originates from a blog out of Sweden (I think!) called Allt i Hemmet (although I couldn’t find this actual image on their blog… I’m sure it’s likely there somewhere though!)
I think I need a bunting-draped kitchen of my own. So fun eh? I love. :)
There’s also this lovely mint specimen from Home Ideas Mag…
How absurdly pretty are those mint-painted cupboards? Quite unexpected. And quite awesome.
Lastly, there’s this one…
Yep. My own poor abandoned little 1940′s kitchen. Oh how I miss it. There was a whole lot of angst and nail biting and obsessing and hours upon hours of Pinterest-searches and Canadian Style At Home-reading and HGTV-watching that went into that tiny (but super functional!) kitchen. And when it was finished, I was so pleased. Oh how I miss that pretty little space. [Ginormous sigh.]
So those are my most recent kitchen-lust-worthy finds. It’s rather hard to make plans for your own kitchen prior to actually purchasing said kitchen, but I’m definitely doing my best (and, honestly, I really can’t help myself!) Here’s hoping that I have a new kitchen of my own (that I can obsess about for real-sies) very very shortly.
