This reminds me of my grandma's kitchen. She always had poodles though. She had a brick wall behind the stove, black and white tile on the countertops with a wood butcher top on a tiny island. (photo is by Knitty, Vintage and Rosy)
Like the gray painted cabinet look. Great alternative paint color for cabinets instead of painting them white, black or staining them.
Maybe not dream home material...but perfect ideas for my home now. White cabinets (we're working on it!), dark countertops, laminate (wouldn't put wood in the kitchen) flooring, undermount sink :)
