Some Ideas

Here are my first thoughts on what I might like in my new kitchen

I decided I should get a stove that's 30" instead of 36" so I can have a regular size dishwasher. Then I'll get a smaller single bowl sink. 

At first I thought I'd get black appliances, but that seems too dark. Now, I'm drooling over the stainless professional stoves that cost a fortune.
These are the cheapest ones I found.

The one on the left is DCS by Fisher & Paykel $2,500 & the other is Bertazzoni for $2,000 including the hood.
This is my 1950's Danish Teak table with my 1961 Denby Arabesque dishes from England

 The red is the floor tile Armstrong Red II & the other swatches are the paint colors with the darker for the cabinets & the lighter for the walls.
The red tile on the left is more truer to the color.


  1. I love the look of the Bertazzoni and the pallette is terrific.

  2. i know nothing about appliances but the one on the right looks cooler....the paint are some bold choices, but who cares, paint is cheap and if you don't like it you can easily paint over it! i like the floor tile! it all looks nice with the dishes! it won't look too dark in there with no white on the walls? will the ceiling be white?

  3. Gigi, thanks.

    Joel, I think the swatches came out a little darker in the photo than in person.I'm not sure about the ceilings.
