Someone Lives Here: 5 character driven kitchens to inspire you.

I want to share a few kitchens that have inspired me recently.  Most of them are ones that you might never see in a design magazine – definitely not in a kitchen design magazine that is out to sell cabinets and products.  These kind of kitchens have clearly evolved from time: time spent cooking and cleaning in them, eating in them and thinking in them.  Is there a common thread other than the fact that I keep coming back to take another look?  Yes, I think they all have a uniqueness of character – someone lives here.

A kitchen in what appears to be an old greenhouse – yes, it probably leaks and is cold in the winter, but – it’s lovely.
