My favourite kitchens of '08

I will be posting over the next few days my favourite photos of the year, by room type. The dining rooms from this year (and by this year I mean that I've saved on Flickr after Jan 1 '08) that have inspired me are below.

Reasons I love these: a car on the wall, lotsa white, concrete, expanse of countertop, soaring ceiling, floor to ceiling subway tile, chandelier in the kitchen, modern and sleek, industrial, open storage, furniture for cabinets, rustic (with no uppers), and one that I can actually enjoy.

What a great inspiration! As a Swede I'm proud to see a kitchen from one of my favorite magazines, Sköna Hem!

All the best in the new year!

These kitchens are gorgeous. I'd take differnt aspects of all of them to make a gorgeous super kitchen...mixing the old with the new.

I wonder if my landlord would mind me knocking down a few walls!

What a great selection. I love the one with the little lights with a bird on the wire...but they are all great.

Do you think if I snuck into the first kitchen and stole their car they would notice :)

Design Girl, I learned with my kitchen reno that knocking out walls to open a kitchen is a BLAST!
