Kitchen Love

As much as I've tried, I haven't managed to dream of a white kitchen. Instead, I distract myself by daydreaming of one.  It's always filled with white cabinetry and marble countertops.  The one pictured took my distraction to new heights. Turquoise has been my favorite color for almost a year now, so it's no surprise this kitchen took my breath away. While trying to retrieve it, I looked for an area rug that I felt this kitchen needed. It's too big for the space and probably not meant to be used in such a high traffic, greasy location but I love this rug so much, it's been my go-to solution for most daydreaming spaces. And wouldn't some bugambilia look just as pretty on the window sill as the ones pictured? I think so too.

What are YOU daydreaming about?

I Think I Need a New Sink

I've always washed my dishes by hand even though I have a dishwasher. I used to find this chore therapeutic, until recently. I blame our abnormally small kitchen sink. It fills up rather fast and dirty dishes quickly begin to invade my counter space. The overflow becomes really annoying after I've made dinner. The worst is when I've made a dinner that utilizes several pots and pans. And we don't even have kids yet! I suppose I should start using the dishwasher. But nah, I think a bigger sink will solve the problem.

Here are some pics to remind me of how much a bigger sink would be useful.

Ahhh, dish-less counter tops. The sink is so freaking deep, I bet the pots and pans are in there hiding.

Now we're talking. A cutting board too. I need you.

Uh, is this a tub or a sink?

I think I can wash my entire kitchen in this sink. No really, my entire kitchen would fit in this sink.

In all seriousness, I like that this one doesn't have that center divider.

This kitchen has two sinks. I'm jealous.

Undermount sinks are sleek, making it easier to clean up water spillage.

Hello, removable strainer.

See. Don't  you want a new sink now, too?
