Kitchen Love

19th Century English cabinet, Oriental rug, and Benjamin Moore Chelsea Gray walls... what's not to love? I'm drawn to kitchens that look as though they've been around a while.

And a butler's pantry too? Swoon!

Details, details, details. You can still mix a little of today in with the past and make it work.

Thomas Smythe's kitchen is stunning. I would love a black kitchen too.

Open shelving is perfect for showing off a collection, whether it's white ironstone pitchers, English transferware, or these beautiful copper pots.

I wonder if i could deal with a wall of shelving instead of cabinets...the thing is you ALWAYS have to keep it neat..but it looks so good. :))))

I'm with you Jen. I like the idea of it, but I think I'm too much of a neat freak to pull it off!
