Kitchen Inspiration

For a year, I have been planning this kitchen renovation.  The first question, 'what color cabinets?'.  Nick was against white, and I was against birch, maple, or oak.  We were left with dark chocolate cabinets, black, or any other color of the rainbow.  I thought about blue for, oh......, about 30 seconds.  Even executed perfectly, it would really limit resale, and I feared I would hate it in a couple years.  Nick and I are both naturally drawn to rich, dark stains on woods.  Ok, cabinet color was easy.  Everything else should be too, huh?
'Which layout do we want?' 'What wall color?' 'Which countertop, laminate or stone?' 'Oh no, pulls?' 'What type of flooring?' 'What lighting can we do?'  'Do we want a backsplash?' 'What backsplash?' 'Can we pull off open shelving?'  These questions danced through my head.  I need inspiration.

These are my inspiration for our kitchen.  All have simple dark cabinets, light colored counters, stainless appliances, and silver pulls.  I can't wait to get done with this!

Happy Superbowl Sunday!
