New Kitchen Inspiration

I love getting inspiration from Blogland. Can you tell?

A few months back I fell in love with a blog called August Fields. Sara was just finishing up building their new home, something we are about to start, so I was scouring her blog for ideas and tips.

I was so inspired by several things that she did, but the most impressive to me was her kitchen.

Isn't it to die for?

Sara says she was inspired by this kitchen from Sally Wheat (via COTE DE TEXAS). It has been featured  around blogland  for a while now and is such a classic... with a twist.

Here are some more pics of Sara's kitchen...check out the wood beams and the pendant light!

Did you notice the open shelving?

 I SO want this kitchen. It is so lovely and warm and homey. I think alot of that has to do with the color of her cabinets. Did you notice the color?

I have loved white kitchens since Remember these inspiration pictures?

Well, now thanks to Sara,  I am thinking of doing my cabinets in the same gray that she used. It is called Benjamin Moore's Fieldstone.

Other people in the blogland have tried it including Susie. She painted her kitchen cabinets recently and blogged about them here. She even shared pictures of a gray kitchen from Martha Stewart.
So what do YOU think? Would you go gray or stick with the traditional white?

I think you are so right to use the grey. It is just beautiful. I love how the light plays off it! Grey is my vote!
