kitchen voyeurism

my mom just had her kitchen remodeled. love it. i'm kinda pissed because this is exactly the style and color of cabinets that i want for our kitchen and i REALLY hate to do something on my house after someone else i know does it. it's just so unoriginal. however, i really love the cabinets so i might have to make an exception. they were handmade by an amish guy in northern indiana. i wanted to use the same guy (i am NOT opposed to using the same contractors) when we get around to the kitchen but apparently our cabinets are going to be handmade by a non-amish guy that lives in irvington bungalow.

things i like about the cabinets: handmade locally, the color, the inset doors, the shaker style doors, the hardware, the crown which actually mimics an older cabinet that was installed too. you can see it if you scroll down.

my mom probably would not be too happy to see this picture of here on the web. however she won't know because i'm pretty sure she doesn't even read this blog. i wanted to show how, even though the kitchen is small, they made the most out of the space.

this was an old cabinet my mom has had for years. i love how she incorporated it with the new cabinets.

love the compact, red stove. really great accent.

What stove is that, anyway? Is it a restored antique or a modern one?

Oooh, that stove! Love the splash of color. Beautiful cabinets, and I also love that she kept a little of the old (with the vintage cabinet) instead of going completely shiny and new. Any 'before' pics?
