kitchens to love

a few gorgeous NON white kitchens...
of all the kitchen images i scanned, this one may be my favorite.
it has the feel of a white kitchen, 
but the cabinets are a lovely gray color.
i love the ceiling height, 
the wood countertop on the island, 
and the overall feel of this kitchen.
pretty gray mixed with lots of white and wood!
aren't the coffered ceilings great?
the planks in between them are a particularly nice feature.
oh wow.
this one may tie for first place.
notice the mix of dark and light?
the island is dark with light countertops,
and the perimeter cabinets are light with dark countertops.
so loving the sophisticated 
feel of this kitchen...
and check out the metal grate/cover
over the cabinet over the oven!
just gorgeous!
as you may know, i love a black kitchen!
this one is a stunner.
love at first sight!
i love everything about this kitchen.
green cabinets done right.
love the punches of red!
rustic beauty.
aren't those light fixtures amazing?
if i had this kitchen,
i would a lot of time gazing out those
spectacular windows.
(i don't think i could reach those pots
above the island though...)
this kitchen has so many great 
textures and materials,
and they all mix together beautifully.


  1. If I didn't have a white (cream) kitchen I would most certainly have mid tone gray cabinetry! LOVE, Sarah Richardson has done some beautiful kitchens using variations of this color. Janell

  2. Wow so much beautiful inspiration! I especially love the gray kitchen!

  3. ummm...your blog is gorgeous. I'm in blog-love! And these kitchens are to die for too...

  4. i need some help with lighting over my island and kitchen table. the cabinetry is cream shaker style. big island with butcher block top. any ideas girls? I have literally been looking since we moved in last year this time.... HELP

  5. I love your inspiration for non white kitchens.

  6. So nice to see non=white kitchens. Sorry really tired of white!
