Kitchen Inspiration

I bet most of you would agree that the kitchen is your favorite room in the house.  It sure is mine, and I am so excited to get to create another one.  I thought you might like to see some photos that made my heart beat a little faster, and might serve as some inspiration in the planning faze of our new house.  I love a white kitchen, but this one will have a big splash of my favorite color.  I know all of you neutral lovers out there might shriek, but there might be a navy island in our kitchen.  Our current house has a bluish gray peninsula, and I have loved having a splash of color with the  white cabinets.  And the bottom line is that if I ever get tired of it, I can paint it.  It’s not like choosing a blue tile floor or a blue back splash that would require construction to change it.  Painting a navy island a different color would be fairly painless and inexpensive.  I have loved navy as long as I can remember, and it will be showing up in small doses all over our house.  It’s a classic.  I’m considering a few other colors for the island, but I would love to know what you think about the navy.

I love the window over this sink, but our windows will be on the side.

I love these pendants.  This deep navy really appeals to me.  I like an almost black navy.

The ceilings look low in this kitchen, but I like the island.  Our ceilings will be 10 feet tall so I think we will be adding some beams made from old barn wood.

This kitchen looks so fresh and bright.  I love the hood, too.

 

Those are just some of the photos that I have seen that make me smile.  Do you have a favorite?  Which colors do you think I should consider?

 

Take care.

    A vote for Navy! And for barstools with backs…. so much safer for wiggly littles. My son and DIL have beautiful swivel seat leather stools. Easy to wipe off and so comfortable !

    We are in the process of a new kitchen. I love all the pictures you have posted. I’m doing my island in Sherwin Williams Cyber Space. It’s a very dark blue. Sometimes looks black sometimes looks charcoal depending on the lighting.
