Quirky Kitchen ….

I have come to the conclusion that I am not a fan of super sleek kitchens. While I love the idea of a sleek modern kitchen, the ones which really speak to me are kitchens like this one: quirky, filled with mismatching bits of furniture and colours and as a result, huge amounts of character!

These images of this great kitchen via the gorgeous Spanish blog Desde my Ventana look like someone really interesting lives in this home! I could move in tomorrow.

Kitchen Adoration…..

I saved these images a while ago to feature on a post and I seem to have mislaid the source….if anyone has any idea where they come from, I would be happy to credit the original source…I usually do not like to do this but I felt I had to share this amazing kitchen design.

The colour scheme is the first thing I love…charcoal grey, white with the touch of camel in the chairs. Note the handle on the back of the chair…a lovely detail.

What more is there to say about the pantry at the rear of the image…storage and a wine fridge…

The overhead lighting is interesting-it almost has a cafe style feel…in fact the whole design has a feeling of a very chic restaurant.

The cooking and prep area of the kitchen…lots of work tops and again, more storage

This area seems to house the fridge, cooker and oven…a wonderful cork board for recipes and notes.I also like how the drawer pulls out at the bottom to store bottles.

The butler’s pantry with the silverware and china ware.

Ingenious bread bin and storage for crackers and crispbreads…I love the handle detail on the bins…clearly these are easily  removed for cleaning.

Spice storage…..amazing! I think the finishes on the actual drawers are also of a really superior quality….I also like what appears to be a matte paint finish.

Knife storage and baking items.

 This is an incredible cooker….the wall behind the cooker is interesting too…I can’t figure out if it is paint or granite or something else.

All in all, this is a dream kitchen …beautiful design and even better execution…if only it was a reality for me!!
