~More Beautiful Kitchens & What I Am Loving~

Good morning to all...I hope you are finding a way to cope with all of the snow and ice and cool temperatures.  Today we have above 0 Celsius temperatures and the roads and sidewalks are very icy.  Not good!  But it could be a whole lot worse, so I won't complain.

And on to more lovely kitchens...these I found over at Style at Home, a really great Canadian decorating magazine.

First of all this gorgeous rustic kitchen.  I love this!

The dining room...

...I love the open concept of this rustic home.

Here's a modern classic kitchen...some of you might prefer that look.

My personal favorite, I adore this huge island, don't you?  Aren't those cabinets lovely, too, as well as the industrial style range, very sweet, I think!

And now for what I am loving this week.
Isn't this cloche the sweetest? 

Country Living

Something that Nancy has been doing...aren't these lovely?  Just in time for Valentine's Day.  Check out Nancy's blog, she's always doing something fun.

And this...I am planning on re-purposing a sweater to make it look something like this, I love ruffles!

Banana Republic

Have a beautiful weekend, I hope you can take some time to relax and do something that you enjoy are worth it!

Love and hugs,

Oh my! These photos are so delightful. I find myself liking rustic these days. Never would have thought I'd like it but it's appealing to me. The sweater?! Adorable! I want one!!

Hi cindy, remain under cold and snow, is a bit difficult, but as you say to God we thank you all, and we ask for help and care in these situations. You know the island in the kitchen is one of the features offered by modern kitchens. It is an advantage, able to move and cook without the gaps are a problem! And the bell jar looks so delicate, I love. blessings, and that you have a nice weekend, Rose Marie

Hi Cindy! I see you're keeping busy by dreaming as the weather is so cold! :) My fav is the third kitchen. I would love to be able to have a large kitchen and an island like that! Love it.
the Sweater idea is cute! If you do it you'll have to show us.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi Cindy, I love the bell cloche. I wish I could find one in our city! My hubby is going to be in your 'winterpeg city' next week on business! Wish I could come too and have a visit but I have appointments. Have a blessed weekend. Pam

Pauline said...

Both are lovely kitchens, the modern one I prefer ;o) That sweater is cute but I couldn't wear ruffles as it would draw too much attention to where i don't need it :o( lol.
Stay warm, dear cindy, drink lots of hot drinks and wrap up well :o) Have a beautiful weekend too.

Our kitchen is so small ... there's not a lot we can do with it. It's an open concept with the living room and dining room.

Betty said...

My preference would be for the third kitchen too.
I like the style of the cardigan with pretty beret to match.

Hi Cindy...I have a very small kitchen that I showed this week and would love that rustic kitchen!

Thanks for sharing these with us. I love the first one , so rustic and perfect.

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

I love this whole rustic look too - mixed in with a bit of what's current.

I'm really impressed that you're going to tackle the cardy project. Will you be showing us? Pretty please?!


E W McCall said...

I'll take the whole rustic house! Thank you very much!

Nice kitchens, but I really like the one in your header photo - I assume it's yours? Beadboard and glass front doors? Yes please!

I have to agree with the note that you left on my blog... the last one with the blue was my favorite too. I am just in the mood for color these days. I guess I am over the white with all the snow....

Gail said...

Hi Cindy, what beautiful kitchens and I love the cloche! Can't wait to see the sweather you repurpose with the ruffles. Stay safe and warm with all that icy and cold conditions.

Enjoy your weekend,

Linda said...

Great inspiration photos, Cindy! And I am lovin' that sweater, too!

Deb said...

Beautiful kitchens Cindy! I really love the first one, the cabinets are very much like the one's I have picked for our kitchen...just ours will be white. I do love the grey too though.

Hi Cindy,
Yes, you can't beat those timbers across the ceiling. Gives a look of unmistakeable sturdiness to the room. And, of course the wide plank wood floors are fabulous too. Thank you so much for visiting. Would like to see how your sweater restyling project turns out!

cindy, just checking in to wish you a h-ppy v-lentine's d-y. sorry re the missing letters. computer issues which = the computer going into the shop for three weeks. sigh. will miss you. left note on my blog for everyone, but if you don't see it, left one here, too.

Hey Cindy,
Please be careful. So much snow and so much coldness scares me a bit. I don't know what it feels like to live in below 0 it scares me a little...Especially since we've had colder temps here than we are use to and I think it's, burrrrr, freezing. I can only imagine how cold it is where you live. Please stay warm and safe my sweet dear friend.

Hugs and Kisses,

Christine said...

I am loving all of the wood and stone in the top photos. Thanks for dropping by Crafty Geordi!

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Well??? It's all very quiet around your's the ruffled top going? I'm all ears. ;-)

I noticed that Most of the homeowners furnished their house floor with wood. Wooden flooring is mine favorite. I also planning to furnish my house floor with wood. I honestly say that I have made some homemade like fabric buntings.
