Kitchen of the Month

I love kitchens...they are the first thing I check out when looking at a house. I love to save pictures from magazines that have cool kitchens.
This particular kitchen caught my eye in the June 2006 edition of House Beautiful. It's certainly not a kitchen that I would ever do in my own home...but I'm SO GLAD that SOMEONE did it! It's adorable.

A quote from the homeowner:

"I wanted to make this heavenly CandyLand. I wanted people to walk in and feel like they could lick the walls, like it was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I asked myself "What is chocolate and everything else sweet?" And the answer is French. A patisserie. A mix of French and chocolate and heaven."

The walls of the kitchen are chocolate brown and the floor is chocolate and strawberry, painted on a diagonal check. The curtains are pink and white Scalamandre silk with pom poms. All the counters are white marble. There's a white Viking range and fridge. Don't forget to check out the murals! I especially love the "time out" bench.

That is such a fun kitchen. I love looking at amazing kitchens and dreaming about what I would do if money was no object.

I remember that article. I thought it was cute, but like you said...not my taste for my house.

This kitchen was featured on Rachel Ray's talk show. The table has some really great monogramed chairs!
