If structurally we have to have pillars in the kitchen when we knock out half of the wall to the dining room, it would be great to have the tapered, moulded pillars typical of a craftsman home (we hope to improve the look of our pillars on the front porch, as well, in the same theme). These are pretty modern, but I pinned it as an idea.
Pretty blue backsplash, and awesome butcher block countertop island with barstools and unobtrusive drawer microwave. I am fascinated by the shelves with decorative bowls *in front of* the window. It is a very unique way to add a lot of color and shapes with functionality. I also love the bright ranch style bead boards and rafters.
Not a fan of the blah-blues, but I love the island with butcher block countertop and inset stove, with hanging pots/pans. It gives it a lived-in comfortable feel despite being pretty modern for my taste. I also LOVE the red splash of heath ceramic tiles and funky asymmetric shelving next to the window.
WOW! The ideal farmhouse sink and faucet! I love the woodsy oak cabinets and clean bright countertops, accent shelves with wrought iron brackets, and most of all the interesting furniture pieces (blue against stained wood! and gorgeous handmade wall-installed dish rack piece). It is so custom and interesting. The brick floors make it feel like a warm hearth. I LOVE this look.
I love how this kitchen has interesting paneling and handles on the brightly painted cupboards, set against the richly grained woodblock counters, and offers dining at both bar stools on the island as well as the kitchen nook in the back. The hanging lamps are a little heavy for my taste. The lattice windows are great!
