Kitchen cravings...

Thanks to all for your comments on my bathroom related posts. I was planning on posting some kitchen images anyway, but I think now it's a must!

As you can probably tell, my taste in kitchens runs along the same lines as bathrooms, mostly white and fairly classic. But not always. Here are a few that I've recently been drooling over and some oldies I've been holding onto - just in case...

A modern but classic looking kitchen by Joe Nye

Three classics by Steven Gambrel. This man can do no wrong in my eyes.

A very small but very luxurious kitchen by Hong Kong designer Steve Leung. So crisp, so fresh and so chic!

The kitchen of Michelle Smith featured in Elle Decor Oct '07 . I have always loved the combination of black and white in kitchens - especially white cabinetry with black benchtops, and this is a great example. Plus I love the idea of having a breakfast bench - and having art in your kitchen.

From one of my favorite all time NY apartments, designed by Fox-Nahem. So classic. I love the vintage light fitting.

One of my many tear sheets I've been carrying around with me, from an Australian magazine. I love the combination of dark wood flooring and all white cabinetry. Plus the light!

Another old favorite, so classic.

These two are from a Melbourne home decorated by Stuart Rattle. I love the simplicity of this and how well it blends into the rest of the interior without necessarily looking too 'kitcheny'. Plus I think the tiled wall/splashback looks remarkably stylish.

From the apartment of Timothy Whealon. I probably don't need to say much more than that. Simple. Chic.

Again, the dark countertops and flooring with the white cabinetry. I must be onto something - it seems to be a recurring theme.

And another. Also a great example of displaying art successfully in a normally utilitarian room.

I love all these images! I big on white cabinetry in Kitchens. Can't wait to do my own, which might closely resemble you last pic with simple glass cabinets.

Oh,yes, I was hoping for this. And, no surprise they are all wonderful. Hats off to Gambrel, of course, but I also love the Fox Nahem - and hadn't seen it before. Fun inspiration for those of us spending the day in the kitchen!

Mrs Blandings, good luck for your day of cooking and Happy Thanksgiving! I love the Fox-Nahem kitchen too, but of course the Steven Gambrel kitchens are so classic.

Thanks Anna!

Great pictures! It is so interesting how you can find a theme in decorating that you might not have been aware of when you were saving the pictures. In this case, the black countertops with the white cabinets.
