OK, just so we are clear……I LOVE white kitchens, I want it on the record…today’s post is devoted solely to the queen of kitchens, the wonderful white kitchen. And this is the mother of all white kitchens hope you have a little time on your hands to take it all in! I have tried listing all my resources but some of these pictures I have had in my wish book album for a very long time, way before I knew much about blogging. My post on colored kitchens a few days ago  and kitchens other than white, was done to show how many beautiful choices there are and to exemplify that through the picture gallery…it was very well received and there is no doubt many of the kitchens shown were incredibly beautiful.  But we cannot take away from the appeal and wow factor that a white kitchen (and all the many shades of white are included here) gives to someone when they walk in a room. There is bright white, soft white, creamy white, yellow white, green white, gray white, the list goes on and on….then you sometimes see a white kitchen with a colored or stained island or hutch which is beautiful too and adds a lot of interest…..lots of choices and possibilities. So today we look at beautiful white kitchens in all their white glory. Do you have a favorite?

I love the kitchens by Natan Egan, Kitchen Lab, Decorpad, James Wass Photography…they are striking, look clean, not fussy and look very functional. There were some others I like a lot too, but did not know the sources. Great post!

I cannot tell you how amazed I am by these beautiful photos. I can cry, “Beauty does that to me”

mwaxter on

Wow you werent kidding when you said the ultimate shout out..this is amazing! I love the lamps, what a beautiful giveaway, fingers crossed!
Too many favorites to pick one, but overall the one I can see myself having a lot of fun is the Werner Straube, its old fashioned in a way but new, just really classic.

Lee on

What a great post! It was the Ult and thanks for such a lovely giveaway- Wow – the lamps are beyond wonderful. I love the distressed white look and the more creamy colors – thanks I am a follower subscribe through reader too.

Brandon @ Southgate on

What a great post! The very minute I can convince my other half that white kitchens aren’t bad (can you imagine someone being averse to a white kitchen? Sigh…the battles I fight) our cabinets will be painted and glazed. I am in love with that curved seating near the top.

As you know, I follow you religiously, so does that mean I’m entered for the lamps? I have just the spot for them…

The Devoted Classicist on

I love painted kitchen cabinets and white in particular. I often use an island in a different finish, so I am glad to see some great examples of that.

Susan on

They are all gorgeous – it was really difficult to pick a favorite. Some things I loved were the use of a lot of glass cabinet doors; I loved the Thornton Designs one, with that lovely banquette setting in blue; I also loved the Morgan Creek and Lauren Rubenstein kitchens.

My two “favorites” were the ones that featured blue & white porcelain – the Julie Lloyd one, and then the Smallbox one – stunning!

Those lamps are gorgeous! You are so generous with your giveaways, Tina!

carolyn bradford on

What a fabulous post! Especially when one is trying to decide between a dark, rich kitchen or a sunny, cheery white kitchen! My son just re-did their kitchen in white with slate blue cabinets and I love it!! His wife will be so surprised if she ever makes it back from Italy! What a fun surprise to come home to! Great giveaway as well! May have to start doing that from my shop! Would be a fun way to advertise! Thanks again!

Mona Thompson on

Lot’s of pretty white kitchens, but hands down my favorite is the one with the amazing wood island that look like a piece of furniture. Not only is the island/table amazing the rock around the hood and the stained wood door add some much needed warmth to the kitchen. My next favorite would have to be the kitchen with the antique dining table in the middle with the tulips. i think that’s Suzanne Kasler? Scrolling through all of the white kitchens confirms my interest in color. As pretty as they are they just all look alike.

The Preppy Princess on

We are always going to be big fans of white kitchens, your photos make a great case for them! Love almost all of them, especially the ‘classic white with white hood’ you shared.

Sending you a mid-week smile,

Wow… what a post! What a giveaway! You aren’t kidding around here, huh? πŸ™‚

I’m a new follower and I really want to win! πŸ™‚

The kitchens you’ve chosen made me dream! I’d love to redo mine, but since I’m selling this house I can’t. My next kitchen will be white, with calcutta marble and subway tiles. Classic and chic. πŸ™‚

Thank you sooo much for adding me on your blog roll. I truly appreciate it. I’ll return the favor and add your amazing blog to mine.

Have a Blessed day!

Have you been looking at my idea file? Seriously, we have the same pictures in our files…fabulous!

Happy Wednesday,

BonjourRomance on

Hard choice, but I love the first selection by Habersham – beautiful and just enough color to take away from the starkness of a too-white kitchen.
What a fabulous giveaway. I would love to enter, but since I live in Paris I may not be eligible, but have a lovely blogger friend I would pass it on to.
Can’t wait to see your final choice!

Ideezine on


Great giveaway someone will truly be excited to win these lovely lamps. They are stunning in the lovely gold color.

I’ve never met a white kitchen I didn’t like ha ha! To place yourself in each one of these gems from your wishlist is to love them even more. I also love glass on cabinet doors, sparkle in lighting, marble counter tops, subway tiles, diamond windows, stainless steel accents, contrast islands, dark floors and creamy tones
as well. All in no particular order it’s all lively and I could cook in any of them.

What fun this has been “Thanks” for opening your wish list and sharing what was inside.


Princess Freckles on

I can’t pick just one favorite! I think the one designed by laura Rubenstein is beautiful, but I also love the dark dark floors with the white in the Thorton Designs photo. I’ve always wanted to do that look of really dark floor with an all white kitchen. When I have my dream home! πŸ™‚

Thank you SO much for this amazing giveaway! the lamps are stunning, and I know just where I’d place them! πŸ˜‰

I hope you’re having a great week! It’s finally sunny (still cold) here in Michigan. It cheers the soul!

OMG Tina – so much to love!! I am a big white kitchen fan but like to include other elements as well to mix it up like many you’ve shown here – you’ve included many of my favorites but others I hadn’t seen that I will have to print out for my files – thanks!

[email protected] on

Love all these! White kitchens are my favorite. I think I like Laura Rubenstein’s the best if I had to pick. I’m planning my white kitchen now. It was nice to see all these photos in one place. Thanks for the post!

Adrienne on

This is the best give away I have ever seen!
The last picture and the Christopher Peacock are my two faves.

I’ll be dreaming about these lamps. So gorgeous.

lvroftiques on

I don’t think you can go wrong with a classic white kitchen. They’re all really beautiful in some way. The Clive Christian over the top kitchen stopped me in my tracks. Not what I would ever actually choose but so stunning to view! You should number those pictures because that’s A LOT of pictures to remember *winks* I’m dying to know which one is YOUR favorite?
Oh and what a great giveaway! Vanna


Those lamps are gorgeous..will have to check out the site, I love anything with Murano glass. I love this post too…you werent’ kidding around that this would take time, it took me ten full minutes to read through…so many gorgeous kitchens. Makes me want a new one:) My fave is the Kitchen Lab, elegant, simple and livable. Terrific post.

I follow and I LOVE the photos! Gorgeous! I hope I win!

I love #1 Clive Christian (who doesn’t?) #2 Kitchen Lab #3 Habersham. I’m also very fond of the beautiful butler’s pantry that has a window over the sink – that’s something I’ve never seen before! Thanks for this great post on white kitchens – I’m a fan!!!

Angie on

What a great post! And who doesn’t love a white kitchen! We just renovated the old house we bought a few months ago and installed a white kitchen (our last one was white too)!

I’m a new follower! Would cherish those lamps!!!!!


Holy Smokes…that was a lot of research into some beautiful white kitchens……I will be adding some in to my files. AND…then those this for real? Cause those are so gorgeous!!!!

David on

Every time I would see a picture in this post, I would say to myself, “that has to be my favorite.” and then I would come to the next picture and say the same thing. All of the images are beautiful, and while your post “6 degrees of seperation from a white kitchen” a few days ago had me rethinking my plan to do a white kitchen in my next house, but this post reaffirmed my love for them!
P.S.- are you using an interior designer in the new home?

Teresa at Splendid Sass on

Wow, now this is a great giveaway! These lamps are absolutely stunning.
I am headed to their site when I leave here. I am a follower, and I am adding you to my blogroll!
Thank you so much for the lovely message you left.

I have THE perfect spot for these wonderful lamps!
Thank you for hosting!

Nita {ModVintageLife} on

I adore white kitchens! I had not seen most of these photos. Fab-u-lous. Are you going with an all white kitchen in your new house?

Nita {ModVintageLife} on

Oh…I went to Swank Lighting and there were many lamps I loved there especially the turquoise ones. And there were lamps made from raw crystal that I was over the moon about. I’m a follower so enter me in the drawing.

Karen on

WOW!!!!!! That’s all I can say right now, Tina. You really outdid yourself this time! And, what a most generous giveaway! There’s something about every one of the kitchens that I like, and thus I can’t choose just one as my favorite. I did realize while looking at the photos that I’m especially drawn to those with a chandelier, lots of natural light/windows, thick countertops, cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling, and at least the base of the island in a different color or material from the other wood in the room. Two that do stick out in my mind are the Clive Christian kitchen (no surprise there) and the “one that’s been around the block”. Gorgeous!

Classic Style on

I agree, I also loove white kitchens, Its hard to choose one..If I have the opportunity to build a dreamkitchen it should have should have marble, BIG island with water,big windows..BIG AGA stowe..Im really looking forward to see your kichen :))/marie

Tina, These Murano lamps are absolutely gorgeous and I would love to have these in our new home! What an extremely generous giveaway. My husband and I were married in Venice but we ran out of time and unfortunately did not get to visit Murano. I love all the kitchens and would love to take pieces from each to create my perfect space.

Interested to know who designed the kitchen with the caption, “Here the gorgeous marble and range take center stage, with the elegant white kitchen as the backdrop…..nicely done.” I truly would like to see the rest of that kitchen.

The French country kitchen design is what I liked the most. It has a sense of style and grace. The stainless steel oven goes well with the tan granite countertop. Likewise, the oven and the white cabinet is a great match!
