Kitchen space.

I very much believe that a kitchen is the heart of a home--at least in terms of our lifestyle. I love to dirty it up...in a good way, of course...with ingredients scattered, pots and pans boiling and sauteeing delicious pieces of a meal that inevitably brings us together at the end of a long and separated day. It's where Maple and I spend  most of our time together...talking, stirring, tasting...sipping a drink. Okay...my point's been made, I think...but that's all to say I spend a lot of time perusing blogs and design sites in search of a kitchen that's cozy and humble yet perfectly inspiring. And this very kitchen is all of those things:

So now that you've seen my dream kitchen--what's yours?
What's your very favorite feature you couldn't possibly live without?
What do you dream for your culinary space?
I'm always looking for clever kitchen ideas...

(Yes, I'm southern...)

Beautiful dream kitchen. I just redid mine this past June, and went from a kitchen built in 1956 to an updated one! All I wanted was a dishwasher and an island! (we had neither before) Maybe I should have dreamed bigger?! ;)

Not quite sure of my dream kitchen yet...I know I want plenty of counter/table space for cooking and baking, and plenty of storage space, but I'm not quite sure yet how I want it to be styled.

Lisa--I am SO with you--I spend most of my time at home leaning over the sink washing dishes, because...well...we like to cook, and therefore eat :) A dishwasher would make my dreams!

And Kelly--that's HUGE on my list. I'm not sure I could ever have enough counter space...and storage is certainly key. Somehow we've ended up with so much cooking paraphernalia!
