Dream Kitchen

I was inspired to create a moodboard of my dream kitchen by the Aya "Blogpodium Bound" Contest - although I didn't end up entering the contest since Blogpodium is in the middle of our west coast road trip and beach time with Dave and the dogs trumps a blog conference in Toronto.

My dream kitchen was inspired by the kitchen in Paul Frank's Hudson River home. I love how the painted cabinets and soapstone are a little bit 'bistro' and a little bit 'country'. I would compliment the grey tones in the cabinets and stone with blue accents - a combination of rich cobalt and bright steel blue - and then add bronze hardware and touches of wood for warmth.

  1. Beautiful kitchen design Amy! The bistro look is a fav of mine too and your mood board pulls the look together effortlessly. Love that we both used Crate and Barrel's French Island in our dream kitchen design. Isn't it a beauty?!

    Thanks so much stopping by my blog! I really appreciate. Have an awesome road trip with Dave and the dogs. Sounds like such a good time. Cheers!
