Took My Breath Away

This is going to sound silly, but I saw a commercial for Kraftmaid cabinets the other day and the picture of this kitchen seriously stopped my heart.

Luckily, I have a DVR so I could rewind, pause and analyze every square inch of the completely stunning kitchen. Sad, yes. But completely enjoyable for me.

What do you think??

I am completely stuck on Hollywood Regency, 1920's to mid-century designs these days. Doesn't this kitchen just cry out for a misty, dewy eyed Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers romantic dance sequence or something?? I LOVE how the interior cabinets are painted a terracotta-y color and lit from within to warm up an otherwise stark white environment while coordinating with the island counter top and bringing out the warmer tones in the stunning (and oh-so-sparkly!) mosaic tile back splash/wall.


But, just not practical for me in this stage of life. I need more "child friendly" colors. But you best believe I'm stealing some little snippet for my someday, future kitchen.

By the way, I'm still waiting for comments on the 'Pay It Forward' post.... :)


Beautiful! Although it looks like a nightmare to keep clean!
