color story: light, white and all natural / sfgirlbybay

yesterday’s post on wood-paneled kitchens was on the darker side, so i thought today we’d do a color story around the ever wondrous color white (yes, it is too a color!). not only do i love it, it’s also a color that is very fresh, modern and feels extra clean to me — which at this point in time is pretty darn important (we can never be too careful). white is always a good idea and goes with everything and it just plain looks great in decor, especially when paired with natural fibers and lots of earth tones. white paint, white floors, white slip-covered furniture — they’re all my jam. so without further ado — i give you a whole lotta fresh, delightful white!

on trend: wood paneled kitchens is where it's at / sfgirlbybay

whether it’s a mid-century modernist’s dream come true or a little bit more on the rustic cabin vibe, i’m seeing a whole lotta wood-paneled kitchens around the internets and in design magazines these days. and it’s a really interesting mix of a Scandinavian meets Japanese design aesthetic and i gotta say i quite like it. with the right architecture, it has a very clean, but inviting and warm vibe. and the built-in cabinetry is certainly functional but oh so pretty and i’m having some very nostalgic flashbacks to my childhood home’s kitchen counters and barstools, too — it’s where i learned to cook by osmosis, watching my mom do her culinary magic while i did my homework. add some big open windows or glass slider doors and it feels almost like inviting the outside right inside and you’re cooking up your meals in a treehouse before you know it. i’ve rounded up some looks i love along with some kinda groovy kitchen accouterment to get the look.
