Flickr Finds: Mattie & Den's "Crazy" Kitchen

Minimalists and clutter-phobes better just move on down the blog, because Mattie's kitchen has got a lot of stuff in it. Thing is, the stuff is so artful and colorful, and its arrangement and display so obviously deliberate, that we fell in love with this kitchen the moment we spotted it on Flickr. Mattie's a bit of a photo sharing addict, as evidenced by her "Flickr fridge," which is plastered with a collage of brightly colored shots. What a fun makeover for a basic white fridge! Click on the gallery for more photos of this colorful kitchen, including a full-body shot of the fridge...Mattie & Den's kitchen, which they share with their son, Mackie, is bursting with creativity and life. The cabinet doors are frames for loterĂ­a posters and Mexican matchbox postcards. The stove cost them $10 at a thrift store (and yes, it actually works). The kitchen is both well-loved and well-used, as evidenced by the French toast photo.

It takes a lot of devotion to maintain a kitchen like this one (we can't imagine how long a good cleaning must take). Still, we'd rather eat one meal here than a hundred in a super-sterile magazine kitchen. Tell us about the personal touches that make your kitchen homey!
