IKEA

















Checking out the different kitchens for renovation possibilities - we like the light feel of the beech one since our kitchen is miniscule at best and would need something light. Loved the Godzilla curtain although not feeling it for the kitchen :) and of course, this cool fold-up cloth farmhouses was pretty cute, too.

I kinda like the white with the black tile.

I like that, also. It feels European to me, in a good way, and I adore that ceramic farmhouse sink. The way people lob dishes into the sink around here though, I would be afraid the ceramic would chip (or dishes shatter).

As you say your kitchen is small, you could still have the white cabinets but change the color of the ceramic tiles to something much lighter -- a pale rose, or a soft yellow, or light blue or a light sage green. That would keep it from being claustrophobic, and a pale color would satisfy without overwhelming. As far as that goes, you could paint the cabinets a very pale color, and have the tile be just a shade or two darker. A buttercup yellow would be nice, or the sage green.

I think I will have to have you come design the kitchen - what wonderful ideas you have!
