It is a customary habit of mine to review the selection of magazines on display in the grocery store as I pass en route to the produce section. On one such occasion, I happened upon a Spring/Summer 2010 issue entitled, “Dream Kitchens.” If you also come across this, do not hesitate to purchase it. The magazine has minimal advertisements and is filled with beautiful kitchens all over the country and descriptive articles that accompany each one. It is an excellent resource to have on hand for inspiration and guidance.
Since this resource is in print form, I can only describe it, instead of showing it to you. One of the kitchens that really caught my eye was labeled, “French Influence” (pg 10). Features of this kitchen include distressed off-white cabinetry, wane’s coating on one side of the island, tender yellow walls, stone floor, stainless steel appliances and accents (i.e., handles) and a decorative, yet charming tile backsplash.
At least one thing we know for certain: I like a french influence. I hope to find the other side of the mix within the next couple weeks.
