My island sits right in the middle of the kitchen. The cabinetry is painted the same color as the rest of the kitchen. My buddy/interior designer extraordinaire, Lori, suggested painting the island another color and using another natural stone counter top to create more interest. What the heck... the Mister and I could use a little more intrigue and fascination in our lives. Who knew it could come from a kitchen counter?
So I started searching for inspiration and in the process, came across these photos of the most impressive islands in the most magnificent kitchens.
Gorgeous, soothing space.
Love the chandeliers.
So warm. Love the pot rack.
Looks like the kitchen of a professional chef.
3 variations of paint on cabinetry. Now I get what Lori is talking about when she talks about "interest."
So nice and bright.
I bet that island is this family's command central. Love the ceiling.
Wow! I would have to hire the kitchen staff from Downton Abbey to cook for me in this grand space.
