New Weekly Event: Terrific Kitchen Thursday

Scott and I have been talking about a kitchen remodel for over a year. It's not that our current kitchen is awful, in fact - it's not awful at all. But we need a better lower (base) cabinet layout and some updates in the event that we sell.

So, to catalog my ideas for the kitchen - I figure I'll start a weekly event to post every Thursday. Inspiring kitchens with so many ideas you can take all or part and be inspired to make minor or major changes to your kitchen, too.

We open it up this week with the kitchen of Joan Gullans Pluck, sister of famed architect/designer Louise Brooks of Brooks & Falotico in Fairfield, Connecticut. When I first saw this kitchen featured in Traditional Home, I knew there were so many elements I'd take when we made our decision to take the plunge:

CDLV Inspiration: The furniture look of the base cabinets, fabulous mouldings! Those bin pulls and gorgeous glass front cabinet doors are absolutely top of the list!

CDLV Inspiration: A built in papertowel holder? Yes, please!

CDLV Inspiration: Spectacular faucet and tile backsplash!

CDLV Inspiration: Architectural detail on the uppers.

CDLV Inspiration: Absolutely love the moulding atop the window frames.

CDLV Inspiration: White. I love White! Scott is not quite sold - but with this collection of images we might just get him to change his mind.
So, what do you think? Are you ready for this weekly event? Are you inspired?
