Inspiration: Cluttered Kitchens

Though I love the look of streamlined, gleaming white kitchens, I have recently been more inspired by images of kitchens bursting with utensils, piles of pottery, and cluttered countertops. Perhaps this is because is it closer to how my kitchen is beginning to look?

  • Yes, I agree. I prefer the kitchens found on Apartment Therapy or the Kitchn to those on minimalist sites. I feel like the move toward extreme minimalism is a desire for minimal stimulation in those whose lives are overly full and cramped with far too many activities and too much stimulation. Perhaps you prefer a more cozy artistic look because your life is more balanced and not full or stress and chaos.
