Has anyone ever had difficulty designing or identifying the home they want to build? I think for about a year and a half we found plans that were good, but nothing that ever made us say “THAT is THE one”.
One day, we were searching for kitchen designs on Google images (a great resource). I have always wanted our stove to look like it was part of an old fireplace. I find the design reminiscent of cooking fireplaces that were once the staple of every kitchen.
After a great deal of searching, we found “THE” kitchen that made us stop in our tracks. It was a design created by Jack Arnold, the renowned architect known for his European influenced designs. Right in front of us was exactly what we were looking for in a kitchen. The cabinets themselves also appear to be designed by Jack Arnold for Bentwood Kitchens. Check out both sites for more information. What do you think of the inspiration kitchen??
I love how this kitchen captures the feeling of an actual fireplace!
Love the copper pots hanging above the stove!
The simple white jars on the mantle look so classy.
Being early in the process, we had never heard of Jack Arnold. The one thing we did want to know was if his kitchens look this good, what did the whole house look like??? A few minutes on his website and we knew we found the team that would design our home. So this is where it all begins, an inspiration kitchen photo from Jack Arnold. Now, which one to choose and build??? Please join our blog and follow along to see the entire process from design to construction to decor.
