Kitchen day dreaming

We have a 36" opening for our stove but we have decided after researching we are going to stick with 30" in hopes of incorporating some side detail or perhaps storage pullouts like these here, nice huh!

 This is the color of cabinets we are considering , its looks very blue on my monitor but it has more of a green undertone. We have had almost all white kitchens in the past including the rental apartments we have lived in , so it will be nice to change things up , although I know it is quite trendy but that is because its beautiful.
I am taking a lot of inspiration from this kitchen as I always have , I love the configuration of the island with the open bookcases flanking the stool area, I think I might want to add this feature . It would be good for books and baskets.

I a still hooked on these chrome pendants , I love the beautiful sparkle they add , lovely , do you have some you love? With two pot lights over the sink and four around the perimeter and two pendants over the island and a 5 light chandelier over the breakfast table I think the kitchen will be one bright and happy place to be.

Your all the way in Canada and I'm seeing a picture from a a home town designer of mine ...Funny! That said, I may seem bias..but the Martha O'hara kitchen seems like the style you seem to always become in the evolution of your decorating. I hope you are getting to enjoy this process. I know it can be stressful and daunting. It will be a treasure when it is all complete and a candle is lit! Good Luck!!

Oh wow! Great inspiration!!! I love them. I love the pull out spice rack. Would be so nice to corral my spices (I have many). I am glad you are having fun with all of this!! I can't wait to see when it is finished! It is too bad you can't get in there and get photos of the progress.

I have the same kitchen configuration as that first photo - two banks of pot drawers, and two small side cabinets. One of them holds oils and the other side has two shelves for holding cookie sheets and trays. Its really functional.

Love all the inspiration photos. I would die to have the island with the built in bookshelves!
