The kitchen in "our" house isn't all that bad, but it kinda has the whole lipstick-on-a-pig thing going on. The cabinets are probably original to the circa 70s house: shallow, not overly functional, but with what is likely new paint. Not an eyesore. And, as my mother considers, totally livable.
My Kitchen Board on Pinterest is full of dark, or at least a mix of dark and light looks. And I've been thinking, although I still have a soft spot for them, if I were doing a kitchen from scratch, I'd probably get away from the all-white look. Going instead for at least some dark cabinetry: charcoal, glossy black, slate-y blue.
But, as I've stalked pics of our would-be kitchen, I've been taken up by the idea of going.....drab.
Like olive, deep khaki - with white walls, and touches of brass and black in hardware and accessories. Cabinets with clean lines, too. More modern-shaker - or even better,
A new take on Out of Africa.
Ben isn't exactly sold, but am I so wrong, here?
Still. So elegant sexaaaaay.
My take....probably falling a bit on the Wishful Thinking side...
Would you share drinks, watch me cook and give me good BS in a kitchen like this, or is it appetite-killing?
