I've always loved butcher block counter tops. They give a really nice rustic, homey look to a kitchen that just draws me in. And when it's paired with a bright white farmhouse sink, forget-about-it, I'm putty. This particular kitchen is a little too retro for my taste but the stain on the butcher block is gorgeous.
This kitchen was designed by reigning HGTV queen, and my favorite designer, Genevieve Gorder. Glass cabinet doors on white cabinets, under-cabinet and in-cabinet lights, stainless steel appliances, Carrara marble = beautiful!
Subway tile with gray grout. I love the subtle contrast of the clean white tiles against the gray grout. I think it makes the backsplash really stand out. The open shelving is really pretty too but I'm not sure how practical it is. Still, very pretty.
Well, I could go on and on with more pics that have inspired me but then this post would be waaay too long so, I'll stop here. What sort of styles do you gravitate to for kitchens? In my totally non-professional opinion black granite paired with dark wood cabinets, though very nice, is on it's way out and will look dated soon. What do you think?
I hope you guys have a great weekend! Talk to you soon!
