Dream kitchens.  Don’t we all have one?  My only problem with kitchens is that I don’t know exactly what to do in them. Yes, it is where we open the wine, pop the popcorn, and store my pretty dishes.  But not being much of a cook, I find all these ‘free range ovens’ a bit unnecessary.  Don’t get me wrong, I want to like to cook. I think cooking is awesome.  In fact, if I was on a speed date, under ‘hobbies’ I might even say that I love to cook and garden because I really want  to love to cook and garden – those people are rad (i’m talking to you, Jeanne Kelley).  So, I found this kitchen, above, and I like it very much, but it might be a bit ‘modern loft’ for me.  I like a quiet kitchen in theory, but for me, I need a bit more color/energy/mess. I have loved this tile, below, for a long long time  and I thought if I could put this tile in this kitchen with the open shelves and those beautiful wooden drawers, then that could be my dream kitchen.


Maybe add a Maiden Hair fern in a footed brass pot and all my pretty wooden bread boards stacked vertically against the backsplash and my crazy don’t-touch-they-are-handmade dish collection haphazardly shoved in the shelves.  Ooh and the vintage ’60’s wine rack that my friend Cindy bought me that I love, love, love sitting on the counter.


Isn’t the saying, ‘If you build it, then you’ll start to like to cook sometimes’?
It worked for Kevin Costner, no?
