In Good Taste:deGiulioKitchen

For better or worse, it seems like the kitchen is by far the room in our homes where we spend the most time. 
As a result, we’re always trying to make them more streamlined, cleaner, more efficient, and, of course, more beautiful.
Looking at these kitchens from di Guilio kitchen design gives us such great inspiration.
Aren’t these gorgeous kitchens in such good taste?
What an ingenious idea for finagling more counter space!
We could mix a mean cocktail at this bar.
The combination of light and dark is so amazing here.
The stone and beams in this kitchen are the perfect touch of rustic chic. They’re almost as fabulous as the view!
This lacquered, mirrored look is so glamorous!
What a fabulous butlers pantry.
So, yes, my mirrored kitchen would be covered with tiny fingerprints… but it’s still beautiful.
A simple vase full of white hydrangeas always makes our kitchens feel more inviting! 
What would your dream kitchen look like?
Happy Tuesday, everyone. Thanks for visiting us!

Things We Love: Butler’s Pantries

Muse Interiors
So we may not have a butler…
Scholz Design
But that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate the extra storage and entertaining prep offered by a butler’s pantry.
Melichar Architects
If it’s as gorgeous as some of these, that’s just an added bonus.

Special accents like statement lighting and pulls make this small space big on style.

Forget entertainment prep. Some of these spaces are so great we might want to entertain in them altogether.
The Enchanted Home
The inspiration for this post was the gorgeous butler’s pantry in Tina’s house from The Enchanted Home. The combination of light and dark is beautiful, and we can’t get over the floors.
Isn’t is just perfection? We aren’t surprised, of course. Tina’s home is ah-ma-zing from top to bottom!! 

Thanks for the idea, Tina and for opening your home to us! 
We hope all of you have a wonderful day!
