Week of White - Kitchens

Good morning everyone :)
We had a power outage last night - most of it was spent sitting in the living room with candles on
while I made hand puppets on the wall for a few hours before finally giving up and going to bed lol.

Soooo let's see now - we've done Living rooms - Bedrooms - Dining rooms - how about kitchens now?



into something more like this

I'll be incorporating this for sure ( you can see how this little table opens up to seat 6 HERE )


and how I came up with the idea to add the bottom shelf HERE

Have a wonderful weekend all - I'll announce the winner of Annie Sloan's autographed book on Monday so you still have time to enter HERE


John says - you can't paint an entire house white
Suzan says - why not?
John says - it'll end up looking like an institution
Suzan says - how strangely fitting...............................

  1. Okay, stop with white, you have convinced me. All those photos are wonderful. My next house will have a lot of white, my next house will have a lot of white.

  2. I will contact Sherwin-Williams, and recommend a new paint color - Institution White. I'd buy it.

  4. Imagine an all white house with lots of windows and the sun streaming in....right after an amazing blizzard or ice storm. Oh my goodness the place would sparkle so bright it might be blinding.... but I would be so filled with the spirit of joy and and happiness.... I LOVE IT

  5. Loving all your white kitchens. I do love a white kitchen. Ummmm...save a room at the "institution" for MY John, too, will ya?;>) xo Diana

  6. I do like white kitchens. I particularly like the one with the apples on the table.

  7. I love that island you made!

    I love all of those Swedish and Nordic inspirations. I used a few of them myself, though I didn't go white, because I was working with what I had in the rest of the place.

    If you make the shelves, you will save a lot of money. Wood countertops and tile are affordable. What I love about all these kitchens is they look unfitted and approachable.

    Love that blue stove! Blue star, Viking, Big Chill, and Smeg make much more affordable colored stove versions than the French one and Aga. (Smeg stoves are not available in the U.S., but maybe in Canada.)

    You will be able to probably use a couple of the pieces you find and paint too!

  9. I adore open shelving, that would be a must for me! Do you follow Tausha's blog? She ripped the cabinets off the wall one day when her hubby wasn't home so he was forced to give her open shelving:)

    A chandelier in the kitchen is a must too! I'm going to enter your giveaway:) Have a wonderful weekend:)

  10. I still smile over the institution commet from your dear John.
    My dear Geir also said that some years ago, but now he like it (I hope). Somehow he has to like it, lol.

    I just love the kitchens you share with us. Beautiful, all of them.

    Big hug for you

  11. I'm on my third gallon of white paint this week, so you know I'm all for these rooms!

  12. I want to paint our stained cabinets white, and every time I mention it, my husband looks at me as if to say, "Do you know how much work that's going to be?" And then I think to myself, "Do you know how much work that's going to be?!" So pretty and clean, though. I don't think I've invited you to my new link party yet!

  13. WE are currently remodeling a house that we will be selling. Im determined to do a white kitchen there. Who knows what will happen to my own house after that?!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. LOL at that last comment!!! I am not sure what direction I want our cabinets to go in the new house. We don't want pure white, maybe something with a glaze. I guess I will know when we start looking but I want to make the right and final decision. John is cool with that. He says you are in the house more then me so you rule the roost, so to speak of course, LOL!!

  15. That top one (not the 1970s one, the top white one) is the direction we are going in....albeit slowly.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I really like the first white one.

  17. You know I'm a sucker for white kitchens too Suzan, love all these inspirations!

    ReplyDelete
  18. What kitchens with a little color are my favorite! I think an all white house may not be too bad! It would look clean and sleek that's for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love the white kitchens you've been inspired by. I wonder if I can do it in my next house! If I don't get all of this settled soon...institutional white will be surrounding me!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Here I go again! Reading your conversations to my hubby. They just sound so very familiar! hahaha! Sweet hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love all the white you've been putting up. I couldn't do it my house though...not until the kids are grown. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Not only are the white kitchens beautiful, I love the stoves in most of them. Thanks for letting us in on your ideas. xoGinger

  23. [giggle] Please tell John that I painted a whole house white and I'm about to paint my new house all white too. My husband would probably agree with John.... but not game enough to voice that opinion I suspect! Love a white kitchen!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You can do whatever you want! If it's white you want, make it white. Your other home had a lot of white in it and it was gorgeous. I don't know what John is worried about.

    Love, love, love the first kitchen with the darker counters. The dark counters ground the room so well. Will it have hardwood floors?

    ReplyDelete
  25. :) yes, white interiors can remind of hospitals and such, so do vynil floors and minimal metal furnitures...I don't think that's where you are going. So far so good.

  28. LOVE this kitchen makeover! I don't usually go for all white but it looks so nice here!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, Suzan! That first kitchen is just ... AMAZING!!!! It's so you.
    Love them all.

  30. I was waiting for that post about white kitchens... and then it got lost in all the mails I haven't read yet... I'm going to keep quite a few in my inspiration file if you don't mind!
    Now, let's talk seriously, call me mad John, but I can see lots of potential in that room that is now the kitchen in your cottage, but if you keep that ceiling that belongs to a classroom, I'm unfollowing you! No pressure!

  31. Beautiful inspiration! I love them all!

  33. Hi Suzan,
    Gorgeous pictures of a gorgeous home!
    I love vintage home decorations and antique things.
    I am pleased to meet you.

  34. White is going to freshen the place up. Just sneak in some wood tones like on your island to keep John happy lol. Thanks for sharing the photos and your humour.

  35. Love them all I wish I could have any but my fave is number 2

  36. Suzan, I would love a white kitchen and you would think in Florida they would be plentiful. Out of the dozens of homes for sale we have seen only one with a white kitchen. Looks like I'll need to paint.
    Hugs,
    Sherry

  37. I love white in kitchens! And these photos sure do inspire! But because I also like color, knowing ME, I'd add one little pop of color and it would just progress from there.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thank you for sharing all of these white kitchens. So many great ideas! I love the open shelving. Our cupboards are white, but hubby put on black countertops....hopefully they will wear out soon. LOVE your blog!!

  39. I have to confess that until this year, white kitchens where not my thing, however they have been growing on me. There really are some beautiful white kitchens out there. The inspiration pictures you have included are fabulous, but I think my favorite of them all would be the 4th one with the apple's on the counter. Love all the open shelving

    ReplyDelete
  40. I could definitely live in that kitchen! White is so clean, so inspirational! It is the perfect background for colorful food!

  41. I have been saying for years that my next house would be white. I have kind of going in that direction for a while now as I slowly convert my furnishings. Brian thought I was nuts too, he thought with a dog and grandchildren going white was insane. But that's the way I wanted to go. Because it is going to be a long time before I can do it if ever. I will have to live my dreams of a white home vicariously through you. Can not wait to see the changes you make to your new home as you go all white. Congrats on the new home, did a little happy dance for you when I heard the news. hugs Tobey

  42. I am saving my money to redo my kitchen and want it to be white. Love your pics.

  43. I got tired of my white cabinets and went dark and hate it. I have to have every light on in the kitchen just to see.
