I'm Loving

I'm loving this white kitchen. I am really into white as I think it creates a great blank canvas to showcase art works and other pops of colour in furniture and other decorating items.

I also LOVE the open shelves and the subway tiles in this kitchen that I spotted today on an AWESOME blog - The Style Files. I have subway tiles in my kitchen and it was a very last minute decision to use the subway tiles. I remember a last minute call to our builder and tiler explaining that I was making a quick dash to the tile shop to pick them up (very much like on the channel nine "The Block" series). But, I am very happy that we made the decision. The subway tiles in our kitchen add some character to an otherwise plain, modern kitchen.

I also really love the open shelves. I kind of wish we had left our walls open for shelves rather than used over head cupboards. I think open shelves really open up the space in a kitchen. I also think that kitchens look great when you can see simple kitchen ware items on display - like in the cool image above.

What do you think of open shelves instead of cupboards? Does anyone have any cool kitchen images to share?

  1. Hiya! Ive been stalking your blog since I discovered it a couple of weeks ago. It's so cute! I am a massive fan of white kitchens too! And while I love the idea of open shelves.. I'm way too messy :) Seeya!

    1. Hi Amy! Thanks for checking out my blog. You put a smile on my face when I read your comment! Sometimes a little bit of clutter can look pretty cool on an open shelf. I think a little bit of clutter can keep a home looking real!!
