Things We Love: Bespoke Kitchens

Holloways of Ludlow
If there’s one room in the house that gets tons of attention these days, it’s the kitchen. 
It seems like has just finished or is in the midst of a kitchen remodel — and the more customized the better!
And that makes sense, really. Because we all do something a little bit different in our kitchen. We love the idea of one oven and extra room for a wine fridge. But that’s because we never use that bottom oven anyone! It’s sort of like a decoration…
One of our favorite kitchen styles combines elements of the rustic, English kitchen with sleek and modern finishes. It’s charming yet very functional.
If you caught our post on concealed refrigerators last week, you know we definitely think they have their place. And, while this stunning kitchen wouldn’t have looked bad with a regular refrigerator, the lever of customization of hiding it is so chic! 
Farmhouse sinks are fabulous in any kitchen. But the feel of this one is so wonderfully authentic. Love!
Martin Moore and Company
We’re assuming the fridge is hidden inside one of these armoires. So clever!
Who needs to go out when your latte is right at your fingertips? This would be good for me, so I could make it just the way I want it. Although, the Starbuck’s baristas are incredibly good about not rolling their eyes at my ridiculous latte order… I guess they’ve heard it all!
Islands are undoubtedly super useful — and very trendy. And they are so very versatile. This is a very unique use of the island space, plenty of storage but also room for the pretty!
Where are the appliances?! This is the kind of kitchen we’d love to eat in. Sparse, white and oh-so-clean! (Although we’d probably forget where the dishwasher was if it was ours…)

These pin lights are so useful (and pretty!) for keeping an eye on whatever’s on the stove and making sure it’s perfectly cooked.
Having a sink directly behind the stove is incredibly useful. And we adore those pendants! They add just enough contrast.
Why pick just one cabinet finish when the world is your oyster?! Mixing and matching styles and colors is great — especially if you’re a little indecisive!
We’re always torn between open shelving and cabinets. This kitchen offers the best of both worlds. We actually like keeping the pots and pans in plain view. They’re sort of like jewelry… Why have it if you’re just going to keep it locked in the safe?
There are coffee stations and then there are coffee stations. These folding doors are so amazing for tucking away the display when you’re finished brewing your morning cup.
One of the things that we think makes the single biggest difference in a kitchen (though we’re not totally sure why) is under-cabinet lighting. It takes the customization up a notch and makes everything look so elegant. Those skylights are great too for letting in the natural light.
Drooling over the stove… And that is such a great use of open shelving. Beautiful!
We think this amazing kitchen looks like a gorgeous little cafe. What could be better than frequenting it every day? 
Sure, you can call it custom. But we think bespoke is way cooler! What would your bespoke kitchen look like?
Happy Thursday, sweet friends… And happy kitchen dreaming!

  1. Im seriously drooling over each of them! So enchanting and dream! Kitchen is one of my fav room :) Kisses xo

  2. Love
    Every
    Single
    One!!

  3. I too love so e rustic alongside the sleek kitchens of the day….brilliant contrast!

  4. These kitchens are all so beautiful and fun to look at–you just know the owner of each one is so excited to go in their kitchen each day.

    Under-cabinet lighting can make all the difference. It can help show off a backsplash, illuminate a pretty countertop, create visual contrast and, of course, help people see better when doing things like reading recipes or cutting vegetables.

    Also, I have a friend who is a Starbucks barista. Trust me, she has definitely heard it all!

  5. Gorgeous inspiration as I try to update my little kitchen. Some of those doors and windows … I only can dream!! xo

  6. Cooking lessons should come with every Bespoke kitchen. I always look at the larger kitchens and wonder if the home owner is a good cook.
    These are all beauties.

  7. i have a bespoke kitchen (love the british term vs custom too), but suddenly i find myself wanting a new one.
    my fav is the martin moore with the shelving and AGA stove. the best i can hope for is a client that wants a new kitchen!

  9. I would love the Martin Moore kitchen but with gray limestone flooring random joints tight grout! I want a new kitchen!!

  10. Love every single one….I wish my kitchen looked like these…

  11. I would not be able to pick one! They are all fabulous!!!

  12. I would love any of these kitchens! If we ever build our own house, I want to design an all white kitchen. I love the “sterile” look of it!

  13. Love every kitchen shown! Now, if they came with chefs….

  14. What a collection of gorgeous kitchens! So much pinning today :D

  15. I can never see too many kitchens. This group holds at least 5 I’d love to own! You do share the best homes with us. Thank you.

  16. What a fun post! Kitchens are always such a drool-worthy visual:)

    I love side by side ovens starting at 30″ from the floor with a bookshelf above them.

    Under counter lighting always warms things up, and the pin lights and chandeliers over an island make everything feel exquisite as well as functional.

    It’s just a place where we can play to our hearts content in designing it.

    I avoid the built-in coffee machines only because I think they change them every few years with new bells & whistles like milk steamers, and I want to update easily without having to tear up the cabinetry.

    We could tai about kitchens for hours! From the cabinetry styles to the appliance choices to the sink fixtures to the cabinet knobs and backsplash choices, it all really paints a picture!

  17. Beautiful inspiration! White kitchens are always so beautiful!

  20. You’ve certainly selected the best of the best!!! I am ready to re-do our kitchen in Maine, especially after seeing these! xo

  21. The first one is amazing! So serene. I wonder what these kitchens would look like with 5 kids at 5 pm!
