current obsession: california kitchens

there's very few things in life that i love more than a well-designed kitchen, particularly as i'm not totally happy with my own current kitchen situation. you know how they say the cobbler's children have no shoes? this sums up my situation perfectly. it also has me dreaming of kitchen remodels and the elements of an ideal california-style kitchen. feast your eyes on some of my favorite features, below. i also love that california kitchens are mainly classic, with a few easy to swap out accents that make them feel au courant. 

key elements for me include:

  • perisan runner
  • arabesque tile or wide plank hardwood floors
  • oil-rubbed bronze faucet and door pulls
  • farm sink (did i mention that i've long been in love with one gorgeous hammered copper sink? heart eyes!)
  • brass light fixtures
