Kitchen Visions

*Thank you or everyone who commented on what maxi dress to get, I ended up liking number 2 and 3 best, I couldn't decide on just one so I decided to get both! Second, I have a bit of beef to pick with Forever 21. I bought another dress on Sunday for full price and later that evening I saw it online for $4 less. I went to the store yesterday during my lunch break and they don't honor price adjustments! I was a little ticked off that what they sell online they don't accept in store. Does anyone else have a problem with this inconsistency? Grr, sorry just a little irritated with Forever 21 right.

Lately, I have been finding myself daydreaming about how my house would look whenever my Sean and I buy one. Blame it possibly on the fact that HGTV is pretty much on all the time at home, yes my husband and I are obsessed, or blame it on all the fun house projects posted on blogs and it gets my mind a-wondering. However, I think about how I will decorate each room, what paint colors I might choose, my vision will be for the house as a whole. If you can't tell already from my recipes I am in my kitchen a good majority of the time so that is the place I will start. 

Here are some kitchens that I have absolutely fallen in love with and would love to make my own!






I would hope there is an island in my kitchen and would be a very bright kitchen. I want it to be warm and inviting for people to come, grab a cup of coffee and just chat!

I love the look of open shelving, and a bright backsplash. Here are a few more I want to model my future kitchen after!

I love the open shelving...it would force me to keep everything organized!

An all white kitchen is my dream kitchen! Too bad my cabinets are dark and I have dark granite lol! Next house ;). Love all the pretty inspiration you posted!

I'm so addicted to HGTV, so I can def relate - love the fourth kitchen! Swoon!

We have an island in my family's house and I love it, we sit there all the time. I also love those polka dot bowls in that last picture, and the open shelving is really cute!

Tara said...

I'm obsessed with HGTV as well :) I've found that a lot of stores are inconsistent with their online and store pricing, especially with sale items...super annoying!

Michelle said...

I love that blue kitchen! And your weekend looked amazing. So jealous!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

Oh my gosh I love the top picture! I just LOVE a white kitchen! so clean and classic!

I love your dream kitchens! I do the same thing- our kitchen in our apartment is teeny tiny... barely enough room for both of us to be in there at once! ;) So we are excited about having a lovely kitchen one day. I love the yellow and white one- it looks so cheerful!

Yeah, Forever 21 has some stupid return policies. You can't even return it if you realize there is a hole in it or something! I'm sorry about your dress though. That is definitely lame!

Considering my kitchen is the size of a quarter, I can't wait to have our dream kitchen!

I can't wait to redo our guest room, but that's on the back burner for another year or so.

ashley said...

I LOVE HGTV! I think I'm obsessed with planning out/dreaming up ideas for my future house. HGTV, blogs, and pinterest only fuel my addiction. :)

Becca {A Blonde's Logic} said...

Great picks! And HGTV will do that to you! My dad is a kitchen designer at Home Depot so I grew up as a kitchen snob. I agree, island and bright back splash are fabulous ideas!

These are lovely! I love the open shelves too! So impressed you were so patient with Forever 21. You really have to be in the mood or know exactly what you want to brave it. :)

I've always been obsessed with having on all-white room in my future home... looks like the kitchen is the perfect place for that! :)

Lara {simply irresistible blog} said...

Thanks for the comment! I like that you got both dresses. That sounds like something I would do! I love how a lot of these kitchens have found a great way to display plates, mugs, etc. Mine have always been hidden in cabinets and this makes such a huge difference on how the whole room looks!

you and I share the SAME taste when it comes to kitchens. I'm all about the farmhouse kitchen look. love the subway tiles, the farmhouse sinks + the charming style!

love love LOVE white kitchens :)

thanks for commenting on my blog today-without it, i wouldn't have found (and followed!) your great blog!

Alexis Kaye said...

I love all those photos :) Isn't it so fun to be a poor newlywed and dream about the stuff you'll someday [maybe never] get?! Haha, I love this stage in life!

Married...with a Pup said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! And yes please, I will take all of those kitchen inspirations!

Style, She Wrote said...

What beautiful kitchen ideas! I love how clean and organized they look. As far as F21 -- that is so annoying! I hate when retailers have different prices online than in store. I suppose it's to entice people to buy it online and pay for shipping? xo style, she wrote

natasha {schue love} said...

Wow, love all the kitchens and the great storage!! Such fun and functional ideas!

Jenna said...

Forever21 can be sooo frustrating when it comes to that stuff! I feel like I can never win with them because shopping in their stores overwhelms me (SO disorganized and SO many people!), but only about 50% of the things I buy online turn out as I imagined and/or even fit properly! Very frustrating.

I absolutely love your kitchen inspirations! They are all so bright and fresh while still looking welcoming and warm! Perfect feelings for a kitchen :)

I am loving these pictures!! Actually printing a few of them for inspiration :). HGTV is always on at my house too! It's so inspiring!

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

I'd have to say I'm a pretty big fan of open shelving in the kitchen, as well! Besides, why not show off your gorgeous bowls, plates and mugs that you KNOW you bought for the look! ;) Why not display it?!

I love the look of open shelving, but I would definitely need prettier dishes before we went down that road!
