Needin' a Hookup + Dreamy Kitchens

I think this kitchen might be the perfect bridge between white and too white.

I NEED to see it in its entirety, but I'm SOL trying to find this special edition down here (no digital version from what I can gather). Any Canadian friends wanna hook me up with a scan?

*Update* - Raina to the rescue! The kitchen is in fact a Lonny kitchen, but I guess H&H is doing an editorial of the same space.

While I await the goodness of the glossy gods, let's recap a few H&H kitchen oldies but goodies. Note: Ginormous. I realize the size may be skewed, but that's still a really large working (stove/fridge/sink) triangle to muster. Also, is that a brass pot filler amid all that stainless? If so, touch of warm metal = goodness.

Bold yet beautiful. Obviously not worried about resale potential.

Fancy pants. It's alright, though. If you wanna go JLo in your kitchen design, I'm good with that. Just have me over for one of the espresso's that baby back there can whip up.

H&H poiters kitchen

Minimalist Art Collector knows what he's doing. Hope he doesn't mind splatters.

H&H Kitchen 1

Velvet in the kitchen. Possibly the most impractical application you could imagine for the fabric. Does that make this kitchen smug?

H&H eclectic kitchen

Contrast painting of mullions is delightful. Marble subways, no complaints. Stainless countertops = noise and a lot of dull knives.

H&H black cabinet kitchen

All-time favorite.

Also, I'm thinking of starting a food blog. Would you follow? Need a clever name, though...

That first kitchen is from Lonny. You can find it here:

Averill said...

Yes I would read your food blog -- I'm always looking for new ideas in the kitchen (I'm a TOTALLY unimaginative chef).

And I love those red-orange cabinets....

I think what Raina meant was that the kitchen on the cover of the magazine was from Lonny (or maybe she didn't - but it is!). That is my all time favorite kitchen that I have as the wallpaper on my computer so that I can sometimes forget and think that it really is mine!

I love the first, and was actually in the 2nd- love it too. I also love the little historical portrait- have a weird fascination with them and although impractical, love love the velvet bench. And please start a food blog...I would SO love to read it!! xo

Oh, those ARE dreamy kitchens! Yeah, stainless steele countertops are not a good idea. And, yes, I would read your food blog!
