My white kitchen tour

Ten years ago we had the ugliest house on the block when we moved in. And not much of a decorating budget. So we kept the kitchen lay-out intact, splurged on a few appliances. And used paint and vintage pieces to add personality.

    Lovely kitchen except why is it always painted? Why always white which is sterile and evokes no emotion or warmth. You stated you had to add baskets and the red trunk for warmth. I just wish someone would stop painting the oak and other find woods white.

    I love the white cabinetry. So fresh & clean and much easier to keep it clean. Natural wood doesn't show dirt, resulting in people not cleaning it. Yuck. Totally beautiful kitchen. Definitely ads a lot of value to your home.
