Kitchens for an Ivory Tower

I'm hoping to get back to cooking very soon, so i need to share more of my collection of spectacular kitchens.

I'm generally a monochromatic person -- i like a vase of flowers with all the same kind and color.  Or when i wear black, i might accent it with white or ivory, and when i wear white or ivory, i accent it with... yes, you guessed correctly... black!  Ok, i do incorporate brown on occasion.

If this were my kitchen, i would have a vase of magenta colored flowers on the island...
I want to see the rest of this house!

I'd like to wake up to this kitchen on a gorgeous spring morning, or winter or summer or fall would also be fine with me.
I love these exposed beams.

And then, dine al fresco, of course...
No, this isn't my patio.  It's a private patio from the Amanjena Resort in Morocco. 
Think, Sex and The City II.

Stay tuned for more kitchens... soon!

A romantic kitchen (No, that's not an oxymoron!)

In my quest for spectacular kitchens, this one must be tops for romantic.  Look at the gorgeous painted ceiling and the warmth that the wood counter brings.  And don't miss the chandelier in the back corner -- just above the potted plants on the back counter.  Wouldn't you love to know what the yard looks like just beyond those windows.  Stay tuned!

Of course they use brown eggs.  White would disappear with everything else.   

A pretty day becomes a happy day.
