I love Kitchens!

I want to start by thanking you all for your kind comments on my last post. It was very hard for me to share such a personal thing with the world. Even though it happened a year ago, it still very much impacts my life and emotions. Anyone who has experienced a miscarriage knows that it is something that you never get over or forget. Your thoughts and prayers mean a lot to me.

On to today's topic...Kitchens! I started my new job on Thursday {after almost 7 months of not working} so, I made sure to have one last trip to Ikea during the day when you don't have to fight the crowds...oh how I will miss that!

I was hungry when I got there so I decided to try the cafeteria. I had heard good things about the food and much to my surprise those things were true...the Swedish meatballs with mashed potatoes were delish! The best part about the cafeteria though was the view....

{This is by far the best view I have seen of the Statue of Liberty from afar!! Amazing!}

After eating by my lonesome and admiring the view, I decided to start my adventure through the store. A typical trip to Ikea takes me about 2-3 hours...and that is if I am just browsing, hehe! For this very reason my husband does not like joining me on this adventure.

I have a serious addiction.....kitchens!! I think that part of this addiction is because there is nothing I can do about our kitchen since we are renters...I have to just deal with the ugly tile on the floor and the hideous light pink backsplash. I love admiring other people's kitchens and Ikea is the perfect place to do that. The best part about the kitchens in Ikea is that you can open every drawer, cabinet, and appliance to see how it is organized....I think it would be strange if I started doing that at people's houses, hehe!

All of the kitchens you see in this post are from Ikea...some are from my trip and some are from the magazine. I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I do!

{I love the use of the table in this kitchen...I also think I am in love with that frig!}

{There is something about a white kitchen that I just love...they are so crisp and clean! The dark wood countertops are the perfect contrast to the white!}

{I love the gray backsplash!}

{Here is another white kitchen...this one has an amazing, black backsplash and countertops. I am also loving that it has 2 ovens...a wall one and a main one!}

{Where to start?? I love that the massive stainless steel island is the focus of this kitchen. I love the pendant lighting! I love the small tiled backsplash!}

{The color combination is what makes this kitchen so amazing! Just look at it...need I say more!}

I have never known anyone that has actually done an Ikea kitchen in there house. Have any of you had any experience with them?

I hope everyone has a great week!

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you
can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I
find this topic to be actually one thing which I think I might by no means
understand. It seems too complicated and extremely huge
for me. I'm having a look forward on your subsequent submit, I'll attempt to get the
hold of it!
