Pinterest is my new favorite thing. Whenever I am looking for inspiration I get on my computer and pull up it up. IT IS MY NEW ADDICTION! I need some serious help.
Today I went looking for shabby chic kitchen inspiration and as usual was not disappointed. Look at these gorgeous shabby chic kitchens I found.
The first photo is from Shabby Chic White via Pinterest and is a shabby farmhouse kitchen. The first thing that drew my attention was how cozy and inviting this mostly all white kitchen is. The natural wood flooring combined with the white bead board paneling brings texture and warmth to the room.
I love the nontraditional open shelving. Not only is this a great way to display vintage dishware & collectibles, it also makes them super accessible. And the shelf above the window uses empty space for added storage for some bigger pieces.
You already know what a big fan I am of using fabric skirting to hide unsightly appliances or open under cabinet storage, or anything else you want to keep hidden for that matter. This pink floral fabric gives the room just a touch of color and femininity.
This second photo from media-cashe2 via Pinterest, is another example of a shabby farmhouse kitchen. There are so many things I love about this eclectic style.
For starters, that long farmhouse sink is just to die for and boy is it calling my name! It too uses fabric skirting to hide under the sink storage. And the open shelf above the sink combined with a sheer curtain provides a perfect spot with lots of light for a mini herb garden and for more display. And what about that huge wooden display shelf over the window. Loving that distressed wood finish!
And while our eyes are aimed up high, check out that crystal chandelier. I would love to have a chandelier in my kitchen. Sure makes me wish I had those high ceilings.
The combination of the distressed upper glass door cabinets and the rustic two-toned painted bottom cabinets are perfect together. If you have room, who wouldn’t want that beautiful vintage looking kitchen island with a wood top?
Lastly, this photo from Ticking and Toile, is a great example how you can bring shabby chic elements into a more modern kitchen.
Is that kitchen island not drop-dead gorgeous? I love the distressed wood plank look and the ball feet. That island combined with that fabulous crystal chandelier brings vintage character to this otherwise modern kitchen.
