Urban grace kitchen
TTN:light blue painted island, open shelving with stainless (unique!) brackets, glass blue pulls, "pretty clutter," well done!
OTTN: I spy lemons
Designer Urban Grace Interiors, image from her blog

TTN: great use of space while allowing entire wall of windows to be 'cabinet free', light fixture above sink, and honey do melon!- nothing else really... it just looks so calming I want to crawl into the picture and sit at the island while someone makes me chicken noodle soup. Anyone want to join? (We don't have to have chicken noodle-)

Jodi caden elle decor 
TTN: different refrigerator, bridge faucet, neat light fixture, black countertops around perimeter, marble on island

Kitchen chicago martha
This is Martha Stewart's kitchen in her Chicago apartment.
TTN: I like the built-in refrigerator panels, wine bottle storage, and the funky light fixture to mix things up a bit

Kitchen manhattan martha
oh, and her manhattan apartment as well.. (sigh) must be nice. This is really different- but I like it.
TTN: Very kid friendly! (moms,we're back in business!)- minus the ladder on casters.. eek, that's a trainwreck waiting to happen; different colored chairs (you know martha painted them herself), white washed floors, tall,open shelving with anything from books to tea kettles.

Kitchen mary evelyn
This is a Mary Evelyn design as well. Actually, it used to be hers! 
TTN: slipcovered chairs around an antique table, backsplash tile is not your usual shape (love it), simple hood design, didn't try to 'over design' the kitchen

Kitchen southern accents suzanne kasler
I know this kitchen has been over posted, but I LOVE it. It makes me happy. 
OTTN: I spy lemons. baby blue tile
TTN: grass shades, matching stools (just the right amount of "matchy"- anything else blue and it would be too much), love the long hardware pulls, and the cooktop knobs- white!? who knew.

Cast your votes! #1-18! You can pick more than one (if you're feeling extra inspired!) or you can shoot them all down. 

TTN: Click on "Comments" below and scroll to end of this post to enter your comment. I'm interested to see which ones are chosen as Faves....

OTTN: These might make a dent in your nest egg, but I just couldn't help myself. Maybe when I have a 'kitchen winner' I will help you piece it together with less expensive materials... just a thought. .. actually, this whole blog is a bunch of thoughts. So I guess it's more like a thought within a giant web of thoughts. A sub-thought. Is anyone still reading this?? If you are, Go Vote. (and sorry for rambling)
