I am pleased to introduce Mari from Design Shuffle, a fabulous social media site for designers and interior design lovers from around the world. She’ll be doing a guest post today showcasing 8 kitchens that I’ll personally be dreaming about for the immediate future! I especially love the turquoise kitchen and the dramatic glossy red cabinets. Gorgeous! But for my own home, the inspiration will come from the white marble countertop and clean looks from the fourth image below.
I hope you enjoy this Guest Post, and would love to hear which of Mari’s picks below is your favourite. Once you’re done reviewing, please vote for your favourite kitchen via the poll at the end of this post.
All the best,
Hi, it’s Mari from Design Shuffle. I love my job because every week I get to visit great blogs like things i’m loving… Today’s guest post is about beautiful and functional kitchens. Whether you’re an established cook with years of experience, a newbie in the world of food preparation or a “wanna be” world class chef, what makes for perfection in a kitchen is the seamless combination of beautiful décor, truly functional design and open access to enjoy the company of family and friends. We hope these eight kitchens we love will inspire interior design ideas for your perfect place to cook!
Where to start in this amazing green kitchen that combines both style and functionality? Sparkly glass tiles on the backsplash, quartz countertops that go on forever, gorgeous lighting—they all add to the beauty of the space. The way the space function comes from the design layout and built-in appliances and every convenience any cook could dream of.
With lots of space for family and guests, this sleek kitchen is ideal for cooking while entertaining. The otherwise calm color scheme gets a punch of color from the long narrow table that easily seats ten hunger diners.
Another turquoise kitchen is irresistible, tall cabinets, wide crown molding and an open floor plan that brings diners to the kitchen. I love the eclectic mix of decorative objects that kick the design up a few notches.
What could we love more than this marble apron sink surrounded by marble countertop and backsplash? Well, perhaps the lovely line of cabinets with glass fronts above it.
A large spacious kitchen is filled with decorating ideas to love—lighting, huge functional island, beautiful white cabinetry, wood floor and much more.
Colorful blown glass pendants light up the granite breakfast bar in an appealing white kitchen. Professional size range, apron sink and handy dishwasher make this space functional, the stone counters and backsplash make it stylish.
What more could a chef ask for? This glossy red kitchen has it all–cool stainless steel range and hood, functional work space around a central table and tons of cabinets for storage and plenty of counter space for prep. A lovely golden chandelier adds a touch of kitchen glamour.
This one is truly a kitchen to love, from its white ceiling down to an amazing blue plaid floor. Among other things in this space, I’ve fallen for the hanging lights, curvy chairs and amazing stainless island filled with storage drawers. A girl can dream about Diamond Baratta kitchen designs, can’t she?
