|I love the ceiling beams and countertops and the backsplash, which appear to be soapstone. I also love the slate floors. While hardwood floors are beautiful, there's no question that slate is easier to clean and much more durable, especially with pets and kids!|
|This kitchen is so spacious -- and the windows let in so much light. I also love the dark panes of the windows against the creamy white cabinetry and walls...|
|An Early American Kitchen: For those who are interested in the concept of the "keeping room" within the kitchen, this is fantastic. The fireplace adds such warmth to the room...|
This is another beautiful example of an updated farmhouse kitchen. I love the glass storage / display cabinet on the right, which looks like a piece of fine furniture.
|Farmhouse, Early American, Colonial Kitchen: Again, the glass display cabinet and the wall of windows, which let in so much light. Here she uses some warmer tones. Notice the stone wall...|
|Farmhouse, Early American, Colonial Kitchen:Notice the colonial colors and the fireplace in this kitchen, which really make it feel authentic. If you're restoring a period home or building a "new old house," a design like the one above really creates a sense of place.|
The craftsmen at Frost Cabinets are truly talented. We posted a sampling of their work below; however, you can check out their complete online portfolio by visiting their website at www.frostcabinets.com.

|Another view of this craftsman / American Arts & Crafts kitchen -- look at the breakfast room with its built-in cabinetry and notice the fireplace and the woodwork in the adjoining room -- probably the dining room. Look how beautifully the woodwork and cabinetry in the kitchen blends with the architectural details throughout the rest of the lovingly restored home... |
TWO CLASSIC KITCHENS BY THE VENERABLE ROBERT A. M. STERN
The House at Blue Water Hill (2007) by Robert A. M. Stern Architects features this classic kitchen, with sky blue painted cabinetry, glass front doors, white subway tiled backsplash, carrara marble countertops, a spacious island with plenty of seating, intimate breakfast room, and my favorite detail -- the picture window above the kitchen sink. Look at that magnificent view...
|Classic kitchen by Robert A. M. Stern Architects -- from The House at Blue Water Hill (2007). Notice the pale blue painted cabinetry, the intimacy of the adjoining breakfast room and the spectacular view framed by the large picture window above the kitchen sink.|
Check out this amazing kitchen by Ines Lombardi of Osborne Cabinets & Millwork in Houston, Texas. Ms. Lombardi won a regional award in the Sub-Zero/Wolf design competition for her spectacular work.

7026 Old Katy Road, Suite 293
|It comes as no surprise that Christopher Peacock's own kitchen features the white cabinetry, marble countertops, gleaming hardwood floors and clean lines, which are, after all, the trademarks of his work...|
|I love the chalkboard on one of the refrigerator panels. Not only is it practical, but it really adds interest to the room. And the variation of the marble / tile behind the stove is fantastic!|
|Here's a closer look at the backsplash...|
|A beautiful display cabinet is practical for storage, yet it resembles a piece of fine furniture. Even the adorable little dog seems to love his kitchen!|
