Design A Kitchen

Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Now I am still living with my parents, which has been an absolute life safer as I don't have to pay rent, but it's as long as I'm in school and working. This can happen as long as I stick with both and help out around the house. Obviously I really would like to move out sometime soon and actually be independent. I have dreams of what I would like my apartment to be, and eventually what I would want my house to look like. An essential part of any house is the kitchen. It's the place where you can cook amazing meals, have fun conversations, and decorate with fun and whimsical ideas. My Pinterest has been the perfect place to set up ideas and inspirations on what my DREAM kitchen would look like. Bear with me though, these are just wishes and wants. I have no idea or clue of what my kitchen will look like when I move out, but here's hoping it'll look like any of these.
When I Get An Apartment:
I love the mix of exposed brick and the brightness of light coming in from the windows. This would be a perfect area to eat breakfast and cook dinner. I love how comforting it feels also.
I love this take on an apartment kitchen, it's super open and airy. It'd be a perfect spot to have dinners and maybe even throw some parties.
I also really love this kitchen from an apartment in Sweden. So light and airy, I especially love the runner with a bold pop of blue. It's the perfect space to cook and have a good time.
If I Ever Get A House:
The color scheme in this kitchen is so wonderful and I love the center island being the place where you can sit down and have a cup of coffee. The marble walls and steel appliances don't hurt either.

How cool would this kitchen be? It's called a "Split-Level Kitchen" because it places a staircase in between a upper and lower level. The kitchen sits below the dining room and makes for easy access to either level. SO AWESOME!

I am in love with the seating for this kitchen. The lighting reflects so well on the wooden table and progressively blends into the exposed brick wall. Such a cool concept for a modern and vintage feel.  If you go to the website also, it shows pictures of how huge the kitchen actually is. When can I move in?

    1. Thanks so much for commenting! Means a lot. :D

      Yeah, I love that first kitchen too. Especially if you're in an apartment, it's big enough to accomodate what you need.

  2. All these kitchens are great! And even though the top one is very long and narrow, it is so well done you don't care. Nice. Cute blog. Following on Bloglovin.

    1. Hi there! Thanks so much for commenting. I agree with you on it being a little too narrow, but I think for an apartment it works in being longer. It is also really well done, and it seems really comfortable.

      Thank you for the kind words. Follow me back? :D

  3. These kitchens are great! I would love to be able to decorate more but my kitchen in my apartment is TINY! Good luck on finding an apartment with a kitchen you adore. :-)

    1. Aren't they? I love that each one is so different, and they're so luxurious! I wish my kitchen at home was something along the lines of one of these, but it's pretty big in itself.

      Haha, that will probably happen when I get my own apartment too. I hope you at least get to do some fun things with your kitchen. Thank you so much, I will definitely share whenever I move out.

      Thank you so much for commenting. Means a lot to me. :)

    1. I know right?! I love the brick wall and then the high ceilings, makes for it look bigger than it really is. Definitely hoping I find something like it when I go looking for an apartment.

  6. These are really great! I love the brick in the first one. I love the chairs in the 3rd one too, I love how they aren't matching.

    1. I'm so glad everyone likes that one! It's most definitely my favorite for the apartment selections. Hoping I can find a place that has something like it when I go looking. And I definitely agree with you on those chairs, it adds a little pop and contrast to the entire kitchen.

      Thanks so much for commenting!
