    Shelf paper with a scalloped edge. I get so effing excited when I find this kind of stuff! Not that I'll ever actually use it because... well... then it is sort of gone if you know what I mean. Even if it's in my own house. Hahaha!

This kitchen is up for grabs right now in Cincinnati, Ohio. Not only are you looking at pink steel cabinets, look at those fabulous floor tiles, the charcoal grey countertops and.... THAT WALLPAPER! Allie Weaver on Facebook has just posted this kitchen that they're tearing out of their home. If you're interested, find her on FB and save this beauty.

So much to admire. The harlequin diamond flooring is easy to miss amongst everything else there is to admire, but don't overlook that. The unit stove that is in the middle of the room and given a 'built in' look. The side by side giant fridge and upright freezer. The angled laminate counter. The corrugated sliding glass, angled under-cabinets over desk and laundry. The pair of hanging light fixtures. The family room blending right into the kitchen area. This is perfection.

I want her pink dishwasher and her pink washer/dryer combo. I covet.

I am in love with this kitchen. Pink laminate counters with red laminate edge? Yes! I do not know if the cabinet doors are laminate or what appear to be glass-fronted. This is a fantastical kitchen. Also, I like the vent hood which is just an unobtrusive pipe so as to leave the space unencumbered. WIN!

If I had money to throw around, I would buy this $1,400 fridge (on CL right now) because it is sooooo perfect and beauteous!

Some serious kitchen porn right here. I love the GE Mark 27. So cool. Wish they had done gas appliances. But being General ELECTRIC, that was not in the cards.

I die. (Lady Kenmore pink washer and dryer with AGH! copper trim)
