it’s not my green kitchen…

But I wish I did this:

This is the beautiful kitchen that BH & G attributed to one of my budget design tips back in July (here)  I cannot believe how many inquires I have received about this design we didn’t do.  (Although, I do have to say with the beadboard, capiz light and farmhouse sink they didn’t hit too far from the mark.  I definitely love it!)

I have seen this kitchen around blogville before.  Who did it, y’all?

To inquirers, I have been advising Benjamin Moore’s Irish Spring to achieve the look:

Pretty close, right?  (such a pretty wall color for any room, really)

For the faucet and hardware I would direct you to Vintage Bath & Tub, our favorite online supplier (telling our secrets here).  The BEST customer service.

There you may find a beautiful stainless steel farmhouse sink (not cheap, for sure).And a Danze oil-rubbed bronze classic faucet:

For the capiz shell pendant, try Arcadian Lighting: (they are friendly there, too)

And for some green kitchens I also adore (but did not design :)…..

Cottage Living Idea House 2008   the bomb-diggity    I have never said bomb-diggity but it seems fitting in this case.



Drew Barrymore’s office kitchen from Domino (this kitchen is still ahead of its time)


I don’t know who to give credit to, but this anthropologie-ish kitchen rocks.

Really way-too-modern for me, but still appealing (via delight by design)

Almost certain this was in Country Living way back.  Classicly simple.

(again, unknown–I want to guess BH & G)

However, I do know to give credit to Emily at Jones Design Company for including us on her blog reading list.  Such an honor!!

Have I told you green is my favorite color?
