kitchen crush {a fresh start}

If you have been reading delight by design for a while you will know that I have a love of neutral palettes, open shelving, and simple styling--which is why these two kitchens have stolen my heart. They also both happen to feature a little bit of a twist on in kitchen dining, from the bench seating in this one...

....to separate and symmetrical placement of eating and prep islands of this one.

ooohhhh... Love this! I did a post a while back about a kitchen table in the center of the kitchen and wondered how it would work with food prep and dining. This solves the problem! Love the idea of the wheels!

These are gorgeous. I love your taste in kitchens. I still stare daily at the one with the SOARING ceiling and concrete everywhere. So cool.

I really wish I had used a bench at my island.

Completely love both of those kitchens!! Thanks for sharing!

I love both of these images and really enjoy designing kitchens with Islands. Shame though that most city homes are too small for this - particularly in the UK. Now to dream of a country home with a large island.....

I love everything about the first kitchen...the open shelving is fabulous!!

LOVE the black millwork accents of the island and dining table, and the coordinating pendants above them! Great contrast!

ditto. Heart your blog, too.

Gorgeous and light filled. The open shelving is such a beautful and casual look.

I'm so glad I saw this post today! I absolutely love the first one. The bench is so perfect. I adore the open shelving. I incorporated open shelving in my new kitchen, but if I had it to do over...I would go more this way. The shelving has more of an industrial feel that I really like. I tend to use bowls and things from my open shelves more because it's way more convenient than opening an under counter cabinet. I also love the casual walls in this photo and the sconces.

The second one is to die for as well! What's not to love about symmetry? And I love black and white.

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
