Is this a dream??
This is the kitchen I've always wanted: white with gorgeous granite tops, lovely hardwood floors and a fabulous gas cooktop!!
It's not exactly what I have right now... BUT... I strive to create the same feeling as this amazing kitchen with a few simple ideas:
* CLEAN AND NEAT: Notice the counters are not covered with STUFF. It's a simple and pleasing look.
* BRIGHT: Hanging lanterns, recessed lights and natural light make a difference; it's an inviting space for cook and company alike.
* FLOWERS & PLANTS: Two plants at the window draw the eye to outside; a lovely place to look when doing dishes and tidying up. I always try to have fresh flowers in my kitchen because I spend so much time there; it's really uplifting, especially in dark winter months.
Until I do get that all white kitchen, I do my best to create the same effect!
