My Ultimate Dream Kitchen & A Cocktail Recipe

I’ve always had a vision of what my dream kitchen would look like. To sum it up simply, it would be huge, have a lot of counter space and windows that would let in lots of bright light!

See that photo above? That is pretty much what I dream of having for my kitchen one day. A large, open space. White cabinets. A large island. Dark wood floors. Granite counters. Hanging lights. Huge, bright windows! It’s lovely, isn’t it? I don’t know why but for some reason, I have a love affair with white cabinets. I think they look so crisp and clean. And they really brighten up the kitchen space.

Another must have for my dream kitchen are stainless steel appliances. They give a kitchen a classic look. And they blend well with pretty much any color scheme.

Isn’t that a beauty? That’s the Electrolux French Door Refrigerator. That’s beautiful stainless steel that doesn’t skimp on classiness. And look at how big it is. If you’re a foodie who loves to cook and bake like me, I’m sure you’re getting excited while looking at this. Just think of all of the ingredients and leftovers that you could comfortably store in this baby. I dream of having a refrigerator like this. I can just see myself easily selecting ingredients from the spacious shelves and perfect temp drawer, placing them on my large, spacious granite counter tops and preparing a delicious meal or dessert.

So what’s so cool about the Electrolux French Door Refrigerator? Not only is it extremely spacious, it has a perfect temp drawer. The perfect temp drawer provides ultimate temperature control with a customizable, versatile temperature zone designated to store a variety of foods and beverages at ideal temperatures. It also locks in freshness with its self closing drawers that provide a tighter seal. Keep those veggies crisp and enjoy that next glass of beer or wine at the perfect temp!

I mentioned a cocktail recipe so here’s one that you may enjoy. This is Kelly Ripa’s Summertime Zephyr Cocktail.

  1. I am so with you on the wide open lots of windows kitchen! Also, that cocktail sounds delicious!

  2. White cabinets for sure! I love those light fixtures too!

  3. Gorgeous kitchen! I’d love to have a kitchen with that much natural lighting.

  4. LOVE the kitchen. I agree – more windows! :-) Can’t wait to try this drink! YUM!

  5. My dream kitchen looks a lot like yours! I have a French door refrigerator (basic boring black like the rest of my appliances) and I adore it. The amount of stuff I can fit in there is incredible! I’m not crazy about the pull out freezer drawer. It’s super spacious but it’s not so good for freezing things on cookie sheets. That requires a lot of moving stuff around, swearing, and praying that it won’t tip over when I close the door. But the fridge part totally makes up for it. :)

  6. I’m gonna borrow your dream kitchen okay? And that refrigerator. Also… I’ll have a drink. Pretty much I’m coming to your imaginary house. Cheers!
