I’ve always been drawn to white kitchens and I know in my last facelift post I shouted from the rooftops “I love white kitchens!!” They are clean, inviting, open and airy. But, on the other hand they can feel boring sterile and ubiquitous. Little things have been popping up around me begging me to rethink my white kitchen plan. Not necessarily abort my mission but just shop around before I, you know, commit.
This all started last Sunday, my father and I were talking about my little pet-project and he suggested black cabinetry. To which I completely dismissed, I had my heart set on white after all! At the time I felt a dark color would overwhelm my small space and give it a rather closed-in feeling. And then I saw Bailey McCarthy from Peppermint Bliss’s kitchen.
GASP! Amazing Right?! That dark green high gloss cabinetry looks magnificent and so seductive. That kitchen is all grown up with a sophisticated kind of glam. She shows before and after photos on her blog here and you can see the spread of her entire home in this months issue of Matchbook here.
So now I’m thinking, am I missing out on something more by dismissing everything but white paint??
And just to confuse myself further I found more colorful stunners.
What do you think? Are you as confused as I am?! I think my favorite might be the…um…er…do I have to pick?!
