Kitchen Obsession

I love all rooms in the house but one of my favorites to look at is the kitchen, notice I said look at because I don’t really cook.  It takes skill and creativity to weed through all of the innovations in kitchen design to arrive at just the right plan that suits you and your family.  People are looking at kitchen organization and layouts in all new ways and the progressive thinking is what makes kitchens so fun to design.

One kitchen that I keep coming back to recently is a kitchen that was featured in Traditional Home, designed by the talented Molly Frey and photographed by the equally talented Michael Partenio.

This kitchen has a fresh, beachy look (its in Naples, FL) and the layout is unusual and totally amazing. There are too many things to love in this kitchen from the chunky antique legs on the island to the walk-in pantry.  The placement of the TV and the microwave, snuggled in to the built-ins is perfection.  Did you notice there are no upper cabinets?

  • this is one of many fantastic kitchens swimming around in my head and inspiration file…I wonder if you could just do like a dust blow out with one of those keyboard cleaners if you didn’t feel like clearing them off?

  • I don’t really know what I would do with a kitchen, were I blessed with all the room in the world in which to put said kitchen. And, yes, I do know that no one really has “all the room in the world,” but lots and lots of people have considerably more room than I have! All I can do, I guess, is just keep surfing the Internet, hoping that I will find designs that I can put to use in my own kitchen. A little here, a little there, that sort of thing. That said, I will say, and I DO say, that you have given me much to think about with your concepts, and I thank you for sharing your ideas. And who knows? Maybe one fine day I will be sharing an absolutely smashing, albeit small, kitchen design!

  • Ahhh, magnificent. And that blue tray placed just “so” in the butlers pantry…mmm….
    We’re renovating our kitchen right now and this, this makes me wanna rip everything out and start all over.
