Scandinavian Kitchens - Today's Mix

scandinavian kitchens color030.jpg

Today we have a little bit of a mix to keep things interesting. All modern kitchens. Some, just downright elegant. A few that you cannot see very well, but you sort of get the picture anyway. Isn't that what our homes are, when all is said and done, an overall feeling? What feelings turn you on and off about these images?

One thing I have not mentioned as yet is that typically, and I only see this in one image, surprisingly, but typically, the lighting hangs down quite low in Scandinavian homes. I LOVE that look. It creates a real intimacy and softness.

In the top image, I'm crazy about the minimalist feel and the plain walls, Also, the artwork. But, I don't believe those plain walls will remain perfect forever. I don't get that.

These lower two images are from the same kitchen. I'm responding to the large, plain, windows and the white walls, which I love. It's an overall tailored look, very modern, but tailored. scandinavian kitchens color031.jpg I LOVE the way this one is done. Look at the lighting against the wall. And, the dark table with white chairs love that too. And, of course we see the little splash of red color that we saw last week. This is a comfortable kitchen for me. This last image was from Bolig Magasinet and the other from Interior Magasinet.

And, a couple of blogs as usual. Anyone check into these that I include every week? Here's one called Milly Tulipan . And, Ingrid's Blog.

The top two photos I love.Amazing stove and those low hanging lights are so beautiful ! The table looks like a spot I'd like to be.

These images are just fabulous!

PS I went over to see the construction over the weekend and found that the kitchen was teensy:-( My husband is moving the wall out 2 feet to give us more room but we will have to be super efficient. ~sigh.

Sheri, I, too, really like the connection between the kitchen and the table. Separate but connected. It would work for me.

Maryam, well, good thing that you saw it now, to move the wall. Two feet, I'm sure will make a huge difference. Keep me in the loop about your kitchen. Talk about it here, would love to know all about it!
