Kitchen Inspiration

I've been scouring Pinterest for kitchen inspiration, and I think I've narrowed down the look I want:

1. Light and bright + natural wood tones - I'd love to have all white walls like these photos, but since we're painting the cabinets white and have white appliances, I think it will be a bit much. I'd love to get stainless steel appliances, but it just isn't in the budget.

2. It's no secret that I love color and as much as I love the above looks, I definitely want to add some hits of color into the space like this:

Isn't that yellow door just adorable?! We don't have a pantry, but we do have a door that leads to our side porch, so that may get painted a bright, fun color. I actually already own the print in the larger photo above, and that may make it's way into the kitchen as well. I'm also in love with that minty green pendant, but I'm not sure that Kev would go for such a bold choice - we'll see. I know it's never going to be my dream kitchen, but here's hoping it'll be a lot cuter than when we started! xo, Lauren

  1. I'm thinking the same thing for our kitchen. I love the look of open shelving that's in a wood tone against a completely tiled wall...swoon. Can't wait to see what you do!

  2. I am loving this look too! I however have blonde colored maple cabinets (my hubs will not OK painting them). So I am pondering grey paint swatches for my walls(my fav swatches so far are sw silver plate and bm gray huskie) and maybe diying concrete countertops. Then have aqua/turq, mustard yellow and orange/pink accents and decor.
