As much as I love white kitchens, there's something to be said for the
warmth that wood brings to a space.  
Here are some kitchens I found that incorporate a little or a lot of wood in a variety of ways.

This kitchen has soft yellow walls and gorgeous white ceiling beams
that complement the beautiful natural wood cabinets.
That's a pretty amazing sink too along with the countertops.

There's an interesting mixture of wood and painted cabinets in this one.
The range hood has such wonderful detail and makes a great focal point.

Of course I love the blue planked walls and they look great with the wood 
cabinetry and flooring in this kitchen.

There is just a touch of wood here with the old table and the door on the right
but it's just enough to add that warm feeling along with the painted cabinetry.
besides, I really love this kitchen so I had to include it  : )

Look at these amazing wide planked floors and old beams on the ceiling ~ gorgeous!
And isn't that a beautiful cabinet with the glass doors on the far wall?

What I noticed about this kitchen is the wood countertop.
I like how it looks with the trim around the windows ~ very pretty.

This kitchen is almost all wood, even the ceiling!
I think the light color of the wood makes it a welcoming
space without being too dark.

This itty bitty kitchen is so cute.
The white bead board is a nice contrast with the darker tone of the cabinets.

Look at all of the character in this cottage kitchen.
Beautiful planked ceiling and notice the old fashioned cupboard on the right.
Mint colored cabinets are something you don't see too often ~ do you like them?

Look at this stunning kitchen!
All wood and topped off by the huge stone hearth over the stove.
Beautiful sunlight streams in through the windows around the top of the room.

Do you have wood tones in your kitchen or would you like to?
I used to think that wood would (ha ha) make a room dark
but when done right, it doesn't have to.

Thanks for coming by ~ I hope you have a happy day!



  1. I love the light green cabinets with the wood ceiling. Now that ours is bright we are thinking about wood floors for our kitchen next year.

  2. #s 4 and 5 are my favorites.

  3. I am right in the middle - what works best for me is pickled oak - it's very light and matches all my doors and staircase.....but I have white baseboards and a touch of wood, ivory and black. All white and all dark wood is too extreme for this middle child Libra, haha. BALANCE in the middle is always my comfort.

    Neat post.

  4. Great kitchens. I so agree that is why in our new home I went with wood in our French country kitchen. Take a look I just posted.


  5. Ok...4, 5, 7 and that last one are all my style! When can I move in? ;)

  6. JoAnne- This is a wonderful post. I, too, like a wood kitchen. The first one you posted has hickory cabinets and that is what we used in this house. It is a wood with a lot of movement in it. Cabinet makers do not like working with it because it has little pockets of "gas" in it. Hit just right it "explodes" and sounds like a gun going off. lol The color deepens a bit with age.
    You found some amazing examples here. xo Diana

  7. After looking at these kitchens I want a new one. They are all gorgeous.

  8. Nice kitchens! Can't wait to start on mine.

  9. Love all the kitchens that share with us. We put in a new kitchen a couple of years ago. I was torn between white cabinets or wood cabinets...and I decided on the wood. I really love how it turned out.

  10. Beautiful kitchens!

  11. I love having wood in the kitchen... Don't tell anyone, but that's what I was hiding in the pictures in my last post ;) I realise reading that post (late) that even if I suscribed to your blog weeks ago, I don't get the updates by email; I don't know why...

  12. I love all these kitchens, you have really set out the fundamental concepts of good kitchen style.

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.



Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.

But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.

And a decorated mantel.

A Christmas tree, of course.

Pretty packages.

And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.

Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.

I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!

Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!

Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
