Lovely kitchens

We are well past needing inspiration for the bones of our house, but I just couldn't resist sharing these few.

How cool is that built in burner? And the sinks? Photos rom Alexander van Berge via Desire to Inspire.

Swoon over that ceiling and high windows. Home featured on Bo Biedre. So much to love there. Thanks to Style*Files for the links.

Lovely color choice for cabinets. Love the hidden down draft and wall cut outs. Photographed by Hotze Eisma.

Lots of light and "built in cabinets" that give a tailored look. No need for fake plants here. Designed by Andi Pepper Interior Group.

Beautiful natural colors on a lovely monotone floor. And what a great down range (or whatever it's called...oops). Photographed by Carlos Domenech.

All around lovely by Kelly Hoppen Design.

Love the dark wood (very similar to ours) and the mix with white stays refreshing. And the downdraft does not become an obstacle. Designed by Kristine Woolsey.

I notice that a lot of kitchen designs are moving away from upper cabinets. Is this because we are making kitchen spaces larger (and what was previously in the uppers can be stored below)? Is anyone living with an "upper-free" design? They look great, but I wonder how functional they are...?
