Dream Kitchen Inspiration

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Do you remember last month when I shared Great Room Inspiration? That was such a big hit that I decided to bring it back this month and share my kitchen inspiration. I think you’ll notice a lot of similarities between the two aesthetically. I definitely know what I like! Being in this industry certainly immerses me in many different styles so I’ve grown to know what I personally lean toward in my own home. Here are a few of the major things I look for in my dream kitchen.

Waterfall Edge

No matter what, I’m definitely going to need a large gorgeous island with a waterfall edge countertop. It’s non-negotiable at this point. I’m so glad my hubby is on board with this look because, to me, nothing looks more luxurious than a waterfall edge.

Dark Hues

Dark floors and dark cabinets. I love them both. Why pick between the two when I can have both? I love the crisp and edgy look it gives the kitchen. With the proper lighting, it won’t look dreary and dark. I’m partial to the Calcutta marble looking countertops so that will be the source of brightness to bounce light around the kitchen.

Bold Backsplashes

Since most of my tastes are more simplistic and plain, I love the idea of adding a pop of accent to the backsplash. There are so many great metallic tiles out there that I’m in love with. Only time will tell which backsplash I can convince my hubby into getting!

Modern Fixtures

From sink faucets to the light fixtures and all the way down to the cabinet hardware. Modern everything! By no means am I a traditional kind of girl. I love my modern touches.

I hope you liked a little inside look on my dream kitchen. Leave a comment below of something you want in your dream kitchen!

I don’t think you can really go wrong with smoothies but there are some recipes that I end up craving way more than others. My cravings definitely depend on the time of day it is as well. For instance, this first recipe is my go to in the morning because it gives me a great caffeine boost.
