Log Home Kitchens

I'm getting so excited about spending my first full summer in my beautiful new log home! I'm settling into this new area and making some new friends. I'm here to tell you that it's not easy being 40ish and starting over in a new town, with a new husband, and trying to make new friends. But I'm getting there and have connected with some very cool local moms. Life is good!
I'm very excited about hosting some summer parties and inviting new and old friends alike to my home. The contractors are putting in our backyard patio as we speak and Eric and I will be plugging away on those kitchen cabinets throughout the weekend.
I've gathered some inspiration photos of some log home kitchens to share with you. While my kitchen will be somewhat different, these are some pretty pics that you might enjoy. Our island will eventually have a stone facing like the one shown here:

It looks like I'm not the only designer who felt that pine colored walls were ENOUGH pine, and wanted some color in the cabinets...look at these green kitchens.

I love every kitchen featured on this blog post...check them out for your own inspiration!

This kitchen is also found on Alkemie. And while it's not a log home kitchen, I wanted to show it because my kitchen island will have a cookbook shelf similar to this, on the end by my stove. Hoping it might inspire me to cook! While I love a pretty kitchen, I have to admit that I dislike cooking and I'm a terrible cook to boot. And for those of you wondering, YES, I did warn my new hubby that I couldn't cook BEFORE we said "I do"!
Have a lovely weekend, folks and keep your fingers crossed that we make great headway on those darned cabinets! ;)
