Kitchen Envy

9.28.2011

I think there must be white kitchens in heaven. While I certainly love color in other parts of the house, I think that white in the kitchen almost serves as a perfect canvas for whatever culinary art (or ordinary grub) is created there. Maybe that's a bit much, but I really do feel like there is such calm in a white/cream/ivory room. I rounded up some of my favorite pictures of white kitchens. 

 The corner nook and  marble counter tops are gorgeous.

 I think the backsplash tile and modern chairs help this room feel so fresh.

 This would be a great space to entertain in.

 TO DIE FOR brick ceilings! Agh!

 Great use of chocolate browns and gold in a white room.

Totally random side note: Does anyone remember that commercial where the kids are trying to describe their teacher's teeth? They're yelling out, "Cream! Yellow! Ivory!" Then one little bruiser says, "Mother or pearl." I used to love that. Maybe because as a teacher I could totally see this happening. All the synonyms for white made me think of it. Lastly, here's a pic of my own humble kitchen. Replacing the counter tops is on the long term to-do list...along with a thousand other things.
