show us your life *kitchens*

today at kelly's korner, we are sharing our kitchens! so excited about this week because i love kitchens, and i love to cook!

so this was my inspiration kitchen when we built our house...it's the kitchen from one of my fav movies something's gotta give. i think i love watching the movie so much mainly just to see her beautiful house!

our kitchen:
this is the view of our kitchen from the living room
 and looking from the office into the kitchen
 i wanted a large gas range but didn't want to pay viking prices, so we went with a ge monogram, and i absolutely love it!! the vent is ge monogram too, and we just had the column up from the vent custom made. i wanted clear upper cabinets when we built, and while i still love them, it really cuts down on practical storage.
 love my little bowls and utensil holder from anthro
 my island holds the sink and microwave
 the sink is an apron sink from whitehaus, and i would highly recommend a non divided sink!
 to the right of the stove and fridge is my wine rack (mike's is in his office) and coffee station.
this space also holds plates, linens, bowls, mugs, and glass dishes. i store a lot in here!
 i love the buffet for extra storage and to use when we have dinner guests, but i wish i hadn't done the raised bar. we don't have barstools on the other side, so it really isn't useful...but other than that i love the buffet! it holds reusable containers, pots and pans, sadie's eating stuff, and our trash can.
 plus i have a little cubby for my cookbooks and cooking magazines
 and since it's part of our kitchen, here's where we eat!
the chairs i got at pier 1, and the table at one of my fav local stores, spice.
have a great friday, and thanks for looking!

  3. Sooo pretty, Danielle! And you sound like me...I think one of my favorite things about watching Paula's Best Dishes is just looking at her kitchen. I swear I'm looking at the surroundings more than I am the food. Ha!
