We've been living with a builder kitchen (cherry cabinets and dark granite) for the past couple years. Very nice looking, don't get me wrong but a little heavy for my tastes. Soon we will transition to another style of modern blond wood and possibly stainless steel counters. I shudder to think of all the smudges and finger prints although probably easier to clean than granite that hides crumbs. It seems that these impersonal spaces have me craving a very rustic working kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I love the white palaces of marble and such but that's not really me. I'm not really that polished and cool, you see. So on that thought, I've been pinning these lovelies.
