wow - wth is with that weird white wrap around "hood" with three weird lights? it would be amazing without that!

I recognized that kitchen as soon as it started scrolling down my screen, before I even saw it in it's entirety. It's from an old issue of Met Home. I don't know what's going on with that cocoon thingy. Maybe the Husband was having a Star Wars moment? Bad, bad compromise! But the rest of the space is beautiful. To the left, in the dining area, the table is built in and extends through the wall into the outdoor dining area. So cool! And check out that cork floor, girl!

I agree with "pillow mint"...the wrap around white hood is awful...the rest is OK!

I am very intrigued...love the turquoise (gives it that 50's retro thang) and the surrounding wood. But it looks like a big mouth with three teeth. Hmmm...

beautiful colors, love the floors, horizontal wood on both walls and ceiling is a bit too much. Sconces make for awkward and not practical task lighting. The Jaws inspired hood thingy is silly.

RaB said...

Definitely, the turquoise on the cabinets is quite inspiring, love the metal handles & all the beautiful wood and cork. The bakeware set is a nice contrast... would you call that... peach? Overall one of the most beautiful kitchen photos I have seen in a while, very inspiring.

But the hood. Ew.

What is that stuff that they use to cover wedding cakes? It's this thick, stiff frosting type thing that's like marizpan but tastes like sweet plastic. Fondant?

I think that's what that range/counter hood is made of.

Gross.

a sledgehammer would fix that in a jiffy.

Awesome Sara said...

doesnt that white wrap around adn the light placement kinda make it look like teeth
?? lik its going to eat the stove and the counter top?

Anne (in Reno) said...

Everything but the hood/mouth part. LOVE the tile and all the colors.

Decorina said...

I was just without words when I first looked at this several hours ago. But now, with the other comments, I can see the teeth/mouth comparisons and can honestly say just ick, no. I kind of like the turquoise color and the overshelf, but the rest just doesn't do it for me.

Baglady said...

Actually, I quite like it. But I don't think I'd have the confidence to have it in my house.

wv= wince. How appropriate!

Camilla @ Designalogue Blog said...

looking past the teeth and mouth chomping- I quite like it!

Sophie said...

Big gaping mouth. Uh-uh, no way.

Alicia B. Designs said...

Like it at first but then i'm scared that it's going to devour me if I do so much as boil water at that stove.

sherri said...

what they said. the ones who hate the white gaping three toothed mouth thingy.

wool and misc said...

hmm, i kind of love the monster mouth. very organic and adobe looking. that's the SW bebe in me, i guess. nice find!

I like the ceiling, walls and floors but that's about it. I keep looking at it to see what I'm missing but I just don't get this at all.

Chris said...

It looks like a giant mouth and reminds me of Antonio Gaudi.

Alison said...

I like it! It makes me think of gaudi a little bit.

I'm also into those sconces to the left and right of everything. How handy.

drollgirl said...

i like the stove. and the wood. and that is all.

citysage said...

yeah, totally looks like a giant monster mouth with white glowing teeth about to devour the cooking range. goes to show that money and taste don't always go hand in hand. in fact in my experience they almost NEVER go hand in hand.

latvian stringbeans are my favourite type of bean. lovely with a touch of lemon and some high quality irish butter.

griffo68 said...

It's like some Disney horror movie!
I absolutely hate it with a passion, all I want to do is grab a sledgehammer and smash away until my hands bleed!!!

Raina said...

Hello Chris and welcome to this deliciousness!

hello gorgeous said...

Giant monster mouth is correct.

Back Garage said...

Dude: everyone is wrong. This rules. I would make that my kitchen in a heartbeat. So much less offensive than the granite countertop, blonde particleboard blandness that makes up the kitchen of every 32-year-old condominium owner in the city. Give me agrarian sci fi over "urban neutral, safe for quick reselling" any day. Sheeesh.
