...we had a MAJOR water issue in our kitchen, which has translated into the tearing out of our hardwood floors and bookcase in the dining room, and who knows what to come in the next few days in our poor little kitchen. So this week amidst the chaos of industrial-strength fans, books on every spare surface, and the awful smell of mildew, I am dreaming of peaceful and uncluttered kitchens.
Sigh. This picture is so beautiful to me.
(I sadly have no idea where it is from, I just found it in a google kitchen photo gallery. I wish I could credit it appropriately.)

What elements do you think are most important in kitchens? I like open shelves where you can display your favorite dishes and pretty bottles, and farmhouse sinks. Floors are tricky, I think. I love wood, but especially after seeing what water in the wrong place can do, I wonder if that is still my kitchen dream. What do you think is beautiful and timeless (and not over the top expensive, like reclaimed brick?)
