LOL, I wish I could say I meant "Island hopping" in the real sense, like off the coast of Italy, now that would be nice :)...... but instead, ive been searching blogs for beautiful and unusual Kitchen Islands ;) I have some friends that gave the ok to show pics of their creative islands and I was so impressed by such inspiring ideas, I just had to share!! Enjoy....
The first one above and below belongs to my friend Bekah, she is such a talented Decorator, and what a fabulous pink island she created!! It shows you that you dont need to buy what the stores have, if you cant find a great store island, make one out of a dresser, a table or anything you'd like! Great job Bekah
This Kitchen below and Island belongs to the fabulous Kelly over at Rose Vine Cottage, ....Kellys Kitchen is one of my all time favorites, she is so talented and so sweet too. You've got to click on the pics and make them bigger to see her gorgeous kitchen and explore it for every detail !
Her idea for an Island is so quaint and sooo cottagey! You are a "Decorating Genius" Kelly! Thanks for letting me share your beautiful Kitchen!
I love all her little touches!
This one below is simply Gorgeous! You can see more of it over at My Romantic Home, this belonged to someone she knew, But Cindy's blog is Stunning and beautifully done page after page! And her home that she features is chock full of her inspiring talents!....This Island is such a pretty color! Soft Blue ;)...Its neat how the butcher block is the top and a console acts as the Island! very cool!
More of this pretty kitchen!
This next one is so simple and Vintagey!! What a Gorgeous kitchen too! To see more of this one and the story of its origins go to Restyled Home and see her beautiful blog!
I love all the colors in this one, I grabbed the idea to add a towel bar to my own island from this picture below, last year I converted my childhood desk into a kitchen Island, I added a base to make it higher and casters so I could move it....then when I saw this, on went the towel bar ;)
and of course , lol, Islands can also function as other things in the kitchen , I love this idea below! great space saver!
and last but not least, lol, my kitchen Island, Ive taken pics of it before for my first post, but just turned it the other way in my kitchen for fun and a different look ;)
Hope you all have a nice Labor Day weekend! and thanks as always for being such good friends and leaving such nice comments too!!
