Kitchen

The Heart Of The Home

March 18, 2011

There’s been a lot of talk lately about how the kitchen is the heart of the home. This concept is a little difficult for me to wrap my head around because it’s not really the case for me. However, that is due entirely to the fact that I’m living on my own and have yet to achieve my aspirations of becoming a great cook. Whether or not you spend most of your day in your kitchen, they are undoubtedly important spaces the design of which is a great project to pour a lot of effort into.

These homeowners weren’t afraid to go with a lot of white surfaces despite having young children. Their kitchen is bright and open with cheerful green accents. The green wall you see in the background is wallpaper that covers that entire wall, which helps a lot in keeping this kitchen from being too monotonous. Via Mixr.se.

I have mixed feelings about checkered floors. It sometimes feels like overdone retro. However, choosing the bold combination of black and white and pairing it with the rest of this lovely kitchen was a complete success as far as I’m concerned. Don’t you think it adds a wonderful dash of fun to this room? Via Mixr.se.

Is it possible for there to be too much space in a kitchen? I absolutely adore this room from the warm toned cabinet doors to the unexpected plant stand hovering above. Via Mixr.se.

I’m really drawn to the rustic look of this kitchen and dining area. It’s a bit cottage-y for everyday life, but there’s still something very attractive about the rough walls, the worn timber ceiling, and the charming trinkets on open shelving. I’m imagining a breath-taking view on the other side of that sunny wall. Via Livet Hemma.
