Kitchens I Love
Right now we are doing little improvements in our kitchen: last summer we took out a microwave and overhead cupboard and put in a big stove fan with "chimney." Now we don't have enough crown moulding for the cabinets and need to choose something new. Here is a small one we are considering:
Before and after pictures will follow in a later post. In the meantime, I am still planning. What I am hoping for is a layered but simple crown moulding look like in this London England kitchen I saw in Elle Decor.

I absolutely love this kitchen. I know I can't make my walls round, and my cupboards are brown, not grey, but they have the same aged knotty look. I like how this kitchen is not afraid of cabinets, as no real cook without a separate pantry can be. I wonder if I should rip out more cabinets, but if there is one I don't really need right now, what about when I get that big wooden salad bowl? I like how just a few of the cabinets in this kitchen have glass doors, or nothing. I like the old tray leaning against the wall, and I love the bead board. But first things first, I love the small moulding on top of the cabinets with bigger moulding at ceiling level above. That is the first thing I want to emulate, and while the moulding I am choosing for my kitchen is a bit more elaborate, it is the smallest that will match our cabinets.
Here is another kitchen I like a lot:

If you saw my post about green kitchens, you will know I have a weakness for them. I love this one not because it is green, though, but because it has a similar cosy vibe to the one above; it is as though they have been there a long time. Maybe it is the large hearth-like stove. Maybe it is the bead board again, and the moulding.
