A New Year, A Whole Lot of New Ideas

First of all, I want to apologise for the long hiatus. Things have been a little hectic of late but I am now looking forward to being able to dedicate my time to the world of design. Is it strange that my heart skips a beat when I see a cleverly designed kitchen with quirky tiles and brass tapware? 

Is it normal to get excited by this small yet extremely functional nook of kitchen goodness?

Normal or not, I don't care. To appreciate good design is part of my DNA. Hope you enjoy the next few images of some outstanding kitchens as much as I do...
