There's nothing like a beautiful kitchen. It's the heart of the home, where everyone gathers, where laughter is heard, food is found, stories are told and conversation is plentiful. I think kitchen's can tell a story all by themselves by the way they are decorated. For instance in my kitchen i have a sign on the mantle that say's: "sit long, talk much, laugh often". and that is exactly what often happens there. We sit long, talk much and laugh often. And while I enjoy my kitchen, the creative side of me is often looking for new ways to change things up. with that in mind here are some kitchens that have been inspiring me. I love how this island has a pull out bench; there when you need it tucked away when you don't. Enjoy!
