I spent alot of the day on the internet yesterday. I was packing, and feeling frayed and anxious. I kept running back and forth to the computer, checking and re-checking my favorite blogs, site, and then ended up browsing more pictures.
Here are a few that I found:
Our new old house has a huge laundry room. I'd really like to put french doors to the outside, and utilize the room a laundry and mudroom. I love the use of cabinets and shelves to make this look more like a furnished room, not just a laundry room. A table to fold laundry on would be so nice- even though hubby insists it'd just be place for more junk... I want one of those ironing boards that folds back up into the wall, too.
I LOVE these pendant lights. And the blue tile counter. The porch screen door is actually to the panty- clever, huh? We could SO do this to the utility room-that-can-be-a-pantry-instead...
This is a completely different look, with fun chandeliers in the kitchen. I love the built in plate rack.
Check out the sink! I have found them online, but apparently they are very heavy, and made in China. I'd like to find one on this side of the ocean. I also like the island, which our kitchen sort of has already... we certainly have the room! I like the beadboard backsplash too, but think something scubbable would be better.
I like the idea of open shelving for at least part of the kitchen. It adds a nice airiness to the room. Plus, some focal interest for some cool old kitchen things. And maybe some jars of candy!
enjoy! hugs, Lee
