Into the Kitchen

Photo by Jodi Pudge for Covet Garden

Hi friends! Feel like talking kitchens? How's yours? Ours is still not there yet, (although in working order, not anywhere near photographing) along with many parts of our townhouse. Will we ever finish it? We're in the market for an exhaust hood at the moment (any recommendations)? I think they can either make or break the look don't you? A little kitchen inspiration today; a few nice images I've been saving.

We have a small kitchen that I'd love to re-do. We currently have the microwave/exhaust fan above the stove (I know, ugly right?). When you get a cool looking exhaust hood, where do you put the microwave (in a small kitchen with very little counter space)?

We're at the tail end of our summer-long kitchen reno. Tile, paint and a couple freestanding pieces and we'll be done. I agree that the exhaust fan is pretty important, especially one that filters outside, which we took the trouble to install (no easy feat in a condo). I can't wait to share the finished product!

That is quite possibly one of the most beautiful kitchens I have ever seen. I love the different textures and colors of the wood.

I can't get over how incredibly marvelous this kitchen is. We're still in the process of renovating ours, but it is so nice to see so many unusual materials being used so perfectly!
