Kitchen Inspiration

I finished painting the cabinets.  No pictures yet, I need to clean up a little bit.  And I wont be posting a full kitchen reveal until I finish up my other projects, which include:
Putting up the Beadboard Wallpaper, 
Removing silicone caulking from countertop seams
Painting the laminate countertops to look like granite.  
Ripping down the ugly wallpaper border, and removing the glue left underneath 
Stenciling a new border

I clearly have a long way to go before finishing the kitchen.
In the meantime, I need some kitchen inspiration

I love the backsplash, the blue color and how it pops from the white cupboards.
That light fixture over the island is super cool as well.

That blue is to die for, especially against the white.  
This is the perfect island bungalow kitchen.

I adore that white shelf, with the white dishes, against the beadboard.  
And that simple valence over the window is a beautiful simple touch
Another backsplash that I love.  I also like the simplicity of the setup. 

I love the beadboard backsplash.  I will be doing this in my kitchen after I finish up the faux granite painting project.  It just looks so crisp and clean.  However, I will be cheating a little bit by using the beadboard wallpaper.

Here is the beadboard wallpaper as a backsplash.  It looks just like the real thing! Hopefully it will look the real thing when I do it!

I love those modern stools.  We have a little bar area that those would work perfectly for!  I also love the black metal accents under the countertop.

More beadboard pictures, can you tell I'm excited about it?  I also LOVE those glass containers.

When I start to feel discouraged with my kitchen project, like the project will never be finished, I just need to come back to this post for some incredible inspiration! Registered & Protected

I do love that blue and look at the backsplash. That is to die for! I wish I would have seen that last summer before we remodeled our kitchen. I do like the combination of the blue with the beadboard. Can't wait to see your pictures.

@Sher I know, that blue is just amazing against the white! It wouldn't fit with our style kitchen and house...but perhaps someday in the future :)

@Dita Maulani The white is just so crisp! I love it!

@seaflowerstudios Oh so much work, but hopefully tons of payoff! It already looks better with the white cupboards...I'll be posting pictures as I go!

Can't wait to see your pictures! I'm inlove with white, lately,too. Nowadays I dream to make my home office all white, but there's a long way there

@ioana Start like I did...thinking I was only going to do the cabinets :) Once you get rolling, boy things snowball! But the end result will be great after you finish!
