I have this picture because of the backsplash. I love the square tiles, and that is something I will definitely have. My mom's parents have a glass tile backsplash that I cannot get out of my mind. I have always loved it. The other great thing about this kitchen: KitchenAid stand mixer. I have one in red. It is amazing.
The white cabinets are fantastic, but I would do them a little differently. I would do all drawers on the bottom (they are harder for the cat to open and easier for me to retrieve things from), and glass front cabinets on top. Though I have no guarantee that my cat won't try to jump through them when I'm not looking. The circular knobs are cute, but I would do cup pulls on the drawers and handles on the rest (and if my mom does read my blog, she'll be thrilled that she won me over on the cup pulls. She's been trying to do that for years).
A little subtle warmth would be needed in the kitchen as well. I've decided that if I were to paint my dream kitchen, it would be purple. I would paint it more of an eggplant purple than a cool purple, so the warmth isn't sucked out of the room. But I would also be able to take it dark with the white cabinetry.
Appliances: I would definitely do stainless steel. With a more traditional looking kitchen, the stainless appliances would give it a bit more of a modern industrial feel. I want my dream kitchen to be classic, but I would also want modern conveniences.
I have plenty of other desires, dreamings, and thoughts, so I'll save those for another day.
As for my current kitchen - which is white - I'm going to do a little DIY on some of my smaller appliances to tie them in to my KitchenAid mixer... It all comes back together with the empire red. So, stay tuned!
