Sometimes, I get stuck on Houzz, just browsing the kitchens.  I'm not going to remodel my kitchen, so I'm not sure what it is that keeps me so interested in them. These first two photos are the same kitchen.  
Of course, you probably already know that I love any room with wood ceiling beams.  I also like the colors in this room, and I think those counter stools are great.


Yes, more beams!  I think that copper stove hood is a star in this kitchen, and I really like the little round top window.

Okay, the side-by-side refrigerator/freezer is what attracted me to this kitchen.  I assume there is some kind of storage built in on either side of the fridge, but I love that the sconces were added (although I'd probably swing the door of the fridge open and hit one of them).  The wood on that island top is gorgeous.

I'm always inspired by an organized pantry.  it makes me think I'm going to get busy and organize mine -- maybe tomorrow, or the next day....

I love the blue ceiling in this all white kitchen.  Great lighting too.

You've probably already guessed that I chose this kitchen because of the wonderful built in china storage.  I think that marble slab on the island is gorgeous too.

This may look like a departure from my normal kitchen dreams, but I love all of those little windows that bring light into the kitchen, and I also like that butcher block cabinet on the end of the island.  Aren't the floors pretty? 

My memory is getting so bad that I'm starting to wonder if I've already included this kitchen in a previous Friday Faves.  Those windows; that copper apron sink; the nice feet on the cabinetry; the different depths of the cabinetry and the beautiful wood counter top have me swooning (maybe for the second time).  

I'm glad you joined me for my Friday Faves.  Have a fantastic weekend.  laurie

I kept changing my mind as to a favorite photo. I loved the built in refrigerator, and I loved that blue ceiling. I think my favorite whole space is the one in the last photo, though. The windows are to die for.

I love looking at beautiful kitchens, too! I love elements of each one you've shown but I especially love the blue painted ceiling. But I'd paint it a different color, probably green!

Oh I love the new look! It creates openness in your kitchen. It's unbelievable how one board made such a difference! Beautiful job!

We have a small galley kitchen. It's efficient and attractive, but when I see photos like these I long for wide open spaces. And of course lots of cupboards for dishes!

I get overwhelmed, I love them all!!
Their are so many great designs and I love elements of each. I am longing for a big pantry like that.
