I want to go to there.

My problem with decorating kitchens is I really don't use them enough to know how to incorporate style and utility. If it were up to me, I'd store books in the cabinets and sweaters in the oven. All I really need is a tea kettle and a good-sized drawer for take-out menus. The goal for my next, more grown-up apartment is to find a way to make my kitchen fully functional yet decorated with the same attention to detail as every other room in the apartment. (Unless I live in a studio, which is a whole other can of worms.) My inspiration will be Tracy's newly renovated kitchen, which was featured recently on The Kitchn and is adorable.

Mainly, I am jealous of her updated appliances and crisp cabinets. Our fridge is about 500 years old and struggles to keep anything cold yet there is a suspicious-looking glacier forming along the back wall and I *think* there might be a can of diet coke in the middle of it. I am also envious of the smooth tiled floors, especially after I cut my toe on a crooked floorboard the other day. Come to think of it, my current kitchen is a wreck! Time for a new project!
