KITCHEN OVERHAUL

Now that we own our home, Eric and I are starting to think about some major changes we want to make.  I think we are going to start with the kitchen because we spend most of our time there.  Below are some images of kitchens that i love the look of. . . I'm thinking open shelving, white paint, raw wood.  Our house is pretty tiny so anything we can do to make it feel larger is a bonus. . . I love the exposed beam look of the kitchen below and i'm hoping to replicate it in our kitchen by seeing what's under our fugly drop-ceiling.  


Do any of you guys have favorite interior blogs/tumblrs?  Any advice on how to overhaul a crappy kitchen?  I'm getting really psyched to start these projects and i'd love all the visual inspiration i can get!

Hi, As a student I always look for the best options to make a big impression, with my small space. I got a lot of inspiration from the website Apartment Therapy. But the best link I can give you is this one. Absolutely brilliant. I believe there are also videos with it on Youtube.
Hope it helps as inspiration. Good luck! http://contests.apartmenttherapy.com/2010/small-cool/

pinterest is actually pretty great for this sort of thing. the site is pretty heavily populated by obnoxious inspirational banner jpegs and pictures of babies, but if you find a few peeps with similar aesthetics to your own, you get to see a lot of pretty images. i have been collecting images for my own kitchen & house-in-progress; have a look if you want: http://pinterest.com/missevalouise/interiors/ take care -eva

omg omg omg! I'm so excited to see your reno's Mol! You have to keep us updated! Like Elegantly Waisted said, I love desiretoinspire and I also love design crisis! I'm pretty sure you already know about moon to moon blog too, just to add in a bit of a boho vibe. And I've been eyeing off buying a green wall forever from woolley pockets! They're rad and might be fun since you guys have lovely green thumbs! xxx mands

Hey! It's Rosie. Evan and I love this site. It's the site of a couple that own a modern furniture store in Toronto. They have a really amazing blog detailing their country home renovations. Hope you like!

Wow! I love the white walls and wood effect. A couple good ideas is to check out IKEA's 2012 collection. It is all about unitizing small spaces. They show examples and they give great ideas. Try to get a free catalog shipped to you or maybe you can view it online at ikea.com!! Watch House Hunters International on youtube for free <-- I'm dying to buy my own place now (especially with a great kitchen!) Good luck & post pictures!
