|This one is especially enchanting with its darling antique chandelier and checkerboard floors! Kitchen by Frank Babb Randolph|
|This is gorgeous! Love the oversized clock and the archways.|
|Adore that stunning range hood!|
|This has always been a favorite, I don't know why. It's very simple, but I love it! By Frank Babb Randolph again.|
|Here they've added open shelving which is a great farmhouse touch. Breaks up all that white cabinetry, too.|
|A definite all-time favorite! The metal range hood, subway tile, dark wood floors, brass hardware and the cute rattan stools - so great!|
|By Suzanne Kasler - and can I say, all of her kitchens are stunning!|
I love that a white kitchen mixes with any flooring, or accessories, or window coverings. And if you are worried about too much stark "whiteness" or that it will be too cold, you can warm it up. Wood floors and some color or texture are great for that, but one thing that I love in a white kitchen is brick.
|Herringbone brick floors here (and an adorable chandy!)|
|Absolutely LOVE the brick backsplash! So wish I would've done it when I was considering it.|
|Wood beams work to warm it up too!|
Sometimes homeowners or designers decide all white on every surface is too much, so they break it up. Either using two different counter surfaces, or even changing some cabinets or more commonly, an island, to a different color. I love this look!
|Black island - love this!|
|Here a pretty blue island adds some contrast.|
|Dark wood island. Very pretty with the slightly lighter floors.|
|Here the island gets a dark honed granite or soapstone counter to contrast with the white marble on the other side.|
|The counter top on this island is butcher block - gorgeous! This kitchen has always been a favorite (I have the original tear out from when it was published over five years ago. Still timeless!)|
I can't help it - I'm a white kitchen girl at heart!
Have a great weekend!!
