Crave-Worthy Kitchens

{I am in love with this modern, laid back kitchen. Everything is perfectly polished, yet the space feels so relaxed, no doubt because of its setting in Rosemary Beach, Florida which is on my list of places to visit. | Image Credit: Beach Brights}

It has been a little while since I last posted a round-up of stunning kitchens. Arguably, everyone’s favorite room in the house, I always find it inspiring to admire beautifully-done kitchens.

{I love the modern hardware and globe pendants selected for this kitchen whose design elements are mostly traditional. Behold the transformative power of accessories! | Image Credit: Beach Brights}

{This kitchen by ADP Architects has some great, vintage details. Notice the hardware—lots of latches everywhere. I also love that the walls are entirely done in subway tile from floor to ceiling.}

{I really like the sleek, modern quality of this New York galley kitchen. The clean lines give the space a gallery feel, perhaps the food is meant to be the star of the show. I love that the muted grey cabinets seem to float in the room. The door/window is gorgeous as is the frame around it. God is in the details!}

{I posted this photo as part of my Style Profile on Spanish designer, Luis Bustamante. It may not be a cook’s kitchen, but it is ideal for entertaining. Check out the banquette and perfectly stocked bar!}

{This kitchen has so many amazing details from the marble slab backsplash with a cubby hole cut-out to the gorgeous lucite hardware and beautiful stainless hood with rivet detail. The pup is pretty cute, too!}

{Technically, this is a butler’s pantry, but it’s bound to be adjacent to a kitchen in the same style, right? I love the rich color of the cabinetry and am especially crazy about the brass hardware and sink!}

{This classically gorgeous kitchen was recently featured on Cote de Texas and belongs to a fellow Houstonian. It is timeless, isn’t it? I love the warmth added by the bistro stools.}

{There are some really cool elements in this kitchen, mainly the contrast brought in by varying finishes and textures. Naturally, I love the brass hardware and the gorgeous marble slab selected for the backsplash. The rustic wood island adds an unexpected touch that makes this space feels so different from other white kitchens. I would love to know who makes the pendant hanging over the island. It’s so interesting.}

{Speaking of gorgeous details, I love the mix of metals in this kitchen and of course, the La Cornue is out of this world amazing!}

Which of these kitchens is your favorite?

love these kitchens. I too live in the Houston area, and would love any suggestions on cabinet makers that can produce this style of cabinetry...these are great inspiration.

Love the brass in a lot of these, along with the subway tile to the ceiling and latches...adore exposed hinges etc. There's nothing like a beautiful kitchen and these are all stunning!

Christine, your kitchen is out of this world! I looked for photos to include in this post, but couldn't find any. Your style is fab!

As a Manhattanite, I can appreciate the galley kitchens and small spaces (even though I don't cook, it's still nice to have a pretty kitchen). Great post.
