I love the “Kitchen of the Month” section of House Beautiful. In fact, I flip to the monthly feature first when I receive the magazine in the mail. This month’s kitchen honestly didn’t strike my fancy, so I thought I’d go online and check out the archives of kitchens past. Sure enough, I came across a kitchen that is mere miles from me (in Lake Bluff, IL)….also in suburban Chicago! Lake Bluff is known for its tree lined streets, pristine lake front and traditional, cottage like homes. This kitchen, however, is far from tradition. It’s sleek, modern design defies the Lake Bluff standard, but is beautiful nevertheless. Check out the “Kitchen of the Month” archives for more great kitchen ideas!
