10 Great San Francisco and Northwest Kitchens

We've been having so much fun ogling all the great kitchens so far this month; now it's our turn for a roundup of some of our favorites from house tours out of San Francisco and the Northwest. We think you'll agree that true to west-coast style, every one of these kitchens is chock full of personality and charm.

FIRST ROW

1 The kitchen of Blythe Friedmann's Urban Gypsy Inspired Abode is the perfect blend of farmhouse and industrial, with its galvanized steel counters and adorable Wedgewood stove.

2 In James' Bernal Heights Re-Make/Remodel, the kitchen's a tight squeeze, but gorgeous mosaic, stylish appliances, and chic blue-gray cabinetry make it a little jewel.

3 We love this simple kitchen from Katie's Inside and Outside Mission Loft because it meets some common kitchen challenges with style. A bright accent wall and a beautiful plant add warmth and vibrancy, and a desk area fits in well without dominating the space.

4 Sam's kitchen, from her Carriage House Meets Gypsy Caravan, may be a bit busy for some, but to us it radiates creativity and love while remaining functional.

5 What we wouldn't give for a giant open kitchen like the one in this 105-Year-Old Converted Barn on Bainbridge Island. Loads of counter space, fun open storage solutions, and those amazing ceilings... to die for!

SECOND ROW

6 Our very own Monika created a super-sleek and comfy kitchen in her home, an Evolving Experiment. We love the choice of the large arched lamp, which provides great light over the workspace without interfering with flow.

7 Subtle touches really round out the look of this sweet little kitchen of Jessica and Erik's Cozy Bungalow. We love the aqua-green ceramic hardware, the retro-pink linoleum backsplash, and the classic butcher block.

8 We aren't usually big on galley kitchens, but this one from The Wilkinson Residence isn't exactly typical. Like the rest of the house, the lines of the kitchen are curved, creating a restful, organic energy. The honey-colored cabinets were a perfect choice.

9 While a bit less quirky than some of the kitchens featured here, Tracey and Jason's Light-filled Remodel is a classically beautiful space, airy and full of light, with an incredibly functional layout and loads of enviable storage.

10 We're pretty partial to farmhouse kitchens, and this one, from Anisa and Graeme's Cozy Portland Craftsman, has so many fun touches: the mismatched light fixtures, the distressed cabinetry, the reclaimed wood siding. Love it!
